This assignment requires posting spreadsheets with your calculation answers in Classes Assignments. You should submit one big spreadsheet with separate tabs for each problem or problem part. If one part requires an answer from a previous part that you could not solve, make an assumption about the required data. You must highlight your answers clearly in color or by notation.

Each question or part of a question is worth the points noted.

1. Suppose Lucent Technologies has $6.2 billion net debt and an enterprise value of $26.6 billion. Lucent’s debt has a 3.5% coupon with 9 years and 265 days to maturity and trades at $85.00. Its marginal tax rate is 42%. The 10 year T bond rate is 2.48%, stock unlevered beta is 2.24, and the risk premium is 5.5%. Assume debt beta is not zero, use Fernandez formulas and compute final answers using at least 2 decimal places. Total 40 pts

a. What is Lucent’s WACC? 10 pts

. If Lucent maintains a constant debt-equity ratio, what is the value of a project with average risk and the following expected free cash flows? 5 pts

2. Suppose Netflix is considering to purchase $5 million of equipment. This equipment will qualify for five years accelerated depreciation beginning in the same year as the capital expenditure. Netflix estimates its marginal federal and state tax rate to be 40% Suppose Netflix has a 7% bo

owing rate and the lease payments beginning of each year are $0.9 million for a lease term of 5 years. The equipment can be disposed for 10% of its original value at the end of the five years. Total 20 pts

4. Your firm is planning to invest in an automated packaging plant. Ha

urtin Industries is an all-equity firm that specializes in this business. Suppose the tax rate is 40%, Ha

urtin’s unlevered beta is 1.95, the risk-free rate is 2%, and the market return is 6.7%. Use Fernandez formulas that assume beta for debt is not zero for levered and unlevered cost of capital. Compute final answers using at least 3 decimal places. 25 pts

. You decided to look for other comparables to reduce estimation e

or in your cost of capital estimate. You find a second firm, Thu

inar Design, which is also engaged in a similar line of business. Thu

inar has a stock price of $20 per share, with 25 million shares outstanding. It also has $100 million market value in outstanding debt, with a yield on the debt of 4.5%. Thu

inar’s equity beta is 1.50. Estimate Thu

inar’s unlevered beta. 5 pts
