QUESTION `1. [ XXXXXXXXXX = 16 Marks.]
a) This is a two period certainty model problem.
Assume that Daisy Brown has a sole income from Fantasy Ltd in which she owns 15% of the ordinary share capital. Currently, she has no savings.
In February, 2018, Fantasy Ltd reported net profits after tax of $600,000, and announced it expects net profits after tax for the current calendar year, 2018, to be 30% higher than last yearâ€™s figure. The company operates with a dividend payout ratio of 75%, which it plans to continue, and will pay the annual dividend for 2017 in late-May, 2018, and the dividend for 2018 in late-May, 2019.
In late-May, 2019, Daisy wishes to spend $100,000, which will include the cost of an overseas trip. How much can she consume in late-May, 2018 if the capital market offers an interest rate of 10% per year?
b) This is an annual equivalent costs problem.
Y Ltd has received two offers for a new computer system. System P will cost $200,000 now, has a three year life and costs $10,000 a year to operate. System Q costs $240,000 now, has a four year life and costs $12,000 a year to operate. The relevant discount rate is 6 per cent per annum. Ignoring depreciation and taxes, calculate the AEC for each. Which do you prefer, and why?

Wildcat Bank Ltd has experienced large losses on its commercial loan portfolio and is unable to meet its next two annual interest payments on its recent issue of unsecured notes. The notes are of $1,000 face value each, mature in May, 2023 and bear a yearly interest coupon payment of 14% per annum.
The Bank paid the interest due this month (May, 2018), and following a meeting of creditors, arranged to defer payment of the next two interest coupons due in May, 2019 and May, 2020 respectively. Under the arrangement with creditors, the Bank will pay the remaining interest coupons (due in May, 2021, May, 2022 and May, 2023) on their due dates, and pay the two deferred coupons (without interest) along with the normal final interest payment and face value of the notes on the maturity date.
