Waban Power Inc. Finance Assingment Help With Solution

1. Answer all questions:
a. Your firm is considering purchasing a new machine that costs $990,000, which can be
depreciated at 30 percent per year (Class 10). The machine would actually be worthless
in five years. The new machine would save $460,000 per year before taxes and
operating costs. Your firm requires a return of 15%. Assuming a tax rate of 40%, what is the NPV of the purchase?
b. Suppose the machine is assigned a 40% CCA rate. All else remaining the same, will NPV be larger or smaller? Give the reason(s) for your answer without actually calculating the NPV.
c. In the question (a) above, suppose now that the machine also requires us to increase
the NWC by $47,200 and that the machine will in fact have a salvage value of $100,000
in five years. What is the new NPV?
2. Answer both questions:
a. Given the following information for Waban Power Inc. and assuming that the company
is subjected to 35 percent tax rate, calculate the company’s weighted average cost of
i. Debt: 8000 6.5 percent coupon bonds outstanding 25 years remaining to
maturity, selling for 106 percent of par; the bonds make semi-annual payments.
ii. Common stock: 310,000 shares outstanding, selling for $57 per share; the beta
is 1.05.
iii. Preferred stock: 15,000 shares of 4 percent preferred stock outstanding,
currently selling for $72 per share.
iv. Market: 7 percent market risk premium and 4.5 percent risk-free rate.
b. Saint John Inc. is considering a project that will result in initial after-tax cash savings of $1.8 million at the end of the first year, and that these savings would grow at the rate of 2 percent per year indefinitely. The firm has a target debt-equity ratio of 0.80, a cost of equity of 12 percent and an after-tax cost of debt of 4.8 percent. The cost saving proposal is somewhat riskier than the usual project the firm undertakes; management uses the subjective approach and applies a discount factor of +2 percent to the cost of capital for risky projects similar to the project under consideration. Under what circumstances should this project be undertaken?
