6) Liquidation
The following balance sheet represents Boles Electronics Corporation's position at the time it filed for bankruptcy (in thousands of dollars):
Cash | $ 10 | Account payable | $ 1,600 | |
Receivables | 100 | Notes payable | 500 | |
Inventories | 890 | Wages payable | 150 | |
Taxes payable | 50 | |||
Total current assets | $ 1,000 | Total current liabilities | $ 2,300 | |

Preferred stock | 1,500 | |||
Common stock | 1,700 | |||
Total assets | $10,000 | Total claims | $10,000 |
The mortgage bonds are secured by the plant but not by the equipment. The subordinated debentures are subordinated to notes payable. The firm was unable to reorganize under Chapter 11; therefore, it was liquidated under Chapter 7. The trustee, whose legal and administrative fees amounted to $200,000, sold off the assets and received the following proceeds (in thousands of dollars):
Asset | Proceeds |
Plant | $1,200 |
Equipment | 2,500 |
Receivables | 66 |
Inventories | 330 |
Total | $4,096 |
In addition, the firm had $10,000 in cash available for distribution. No single wage earner had over $2,000 in claims, and there were no unfunded pension plan liabilities.

7)Valuation
Hastings Corporation is interested in acquiring Vandell Corporation. Vandell has 1 million shares outstanding and a target capital structure consisting of 30% debt. Vandell's debt interest rate is 7.6%. Assume that the risk-free rate of interest is 5% and the market risk premium is 6%. Both Vandell and Hastings face a 30% tax rate.
Vandell's free cash flow (FCF_{0}) is $2 million per year and is expected to grow at a constant rate of 4% a year; its beta is 1.50. What is the value of Vandell's operations? (Hint: Use the corporate valuation model.) Round your answer to two decimal places. Do not round intermediate steps.

If Vandell has $8.70 million in debt, what is the current value of Vandell's stock? (Hint: Use the corporate valuation model.) Round your answer to the nearest cent. Do not round intermediate steps.

8) Merger Valuation
Hastings Corporation is interested in acquiring Vandell Corporation. Vandell has 1 million shares outstanding and a target capital structure consisting of 30% debt. Vandell's debt interest rate is 7.8%. Assume that the risk-free rate of interest is 4% and the market risk premium is 8%. Both Vandell and Hastings face a 30% tax rate.
Hastings estimates that if it acquires Vandell, interest payments will be $1,600,000 per year for 3 years after which the current target capital structure of 30% debt will be maintained. Interest in the fourth year will be $1.424 million after which interest and the tax shield will grow at 4%. Synergies will cause the free cash flows to be $2.5 million, $3.2 million, $3.5 million, and then $3.72 million in Years 1 through 4, respectively, after which the free cash flows will grow at a 4% rate. What is the unlevered value of Vandell? Vandell's beta is 1.10. Enter your answer in millions. For example, an answer of $1.2 million should be entered as 1.2, not 1,200,000. Round your answer to two decimal places. Do not round intermediate steps.

9) Merger Valuation with Change in Capital Structure
Hastings Corporation is interested in acquiring Vandell Corporation. Vandell has 1 million shares outstanding and a target capital structure consisting of 30% debt. Vandell's debt interest rate is 7.8%. Assume that the risk-free rate of interest is 3% and the market risk premium is 7%. Both Vandell and Hastings face a 35% tax rate.
Hastings estimates that if it acquires Vandell, interest payments will be $1,500,000 per year for 3 years. Suppose Hastings will increase Vandell's level of debt at the end of Year 3 to $29.2 million so that the target capital structure will be 45% debt. Assume that with this higher level of debt the interest rate would be 8.0%, and assume that interest payments in Year 4 are based on the new debt level from the end of Year 3 and new interest rate. Synergies will cause the free cash flows to be $2.5 million, $2.7 million, $3.5 million, and then $3.77 million, after which the free cash flows and tax shields will grow at a 5% rate. Assume Vandell now has $9.23 million in debt. It's beta is 1.40.
What is the value of the unlevered firm? Enter your answer in millions. For example, an answer of $1.2 million should be entered as 1.2, not 1,200,000. Round your answer to two decimal places. Do not round intermediate steps.

10) Merger Analysis
Marston Marble Corporation is considering a merger with the Conroy Concrete Company. Conroy is a publicly traded company, and its beta is 1.15. Conroy has been barely profitable, so it has paid an average of only 20% in taxes during the last several years. In addition, it uses little debt, its target ratio is just 30%, with the cost of debt 9%.
If the acquisition were made, Marston would operate Conroy as a separate, wholly owned subsidiary. Marston would pay taxes on a consolidated basis, and the tax rate would therefore increase to 35%. Marston also would increase the debt capitalization in the Conroy subsidiary to w_{d} = 40%, for a total of $28.51 million in debt by the end of Year 4, and pay 11.0% on the debt. Marston's acquisition department estimates that Conroy, if acquired, would generate the following free cash flows and interest expenses (in millions of dollars) in Years 1-5:
Year | Free Cash Flows | Interest Expense |
1 | $1.30 | $1.2 |
2 | 1.50 | 1.7 |
3 | 1.75 | 2.8 |
4 | 2.00 | 2.1 |
5 | 2.12 | ? |
In Year 5 Conroy's interest expense would be based on its beginning-of-year (that is, the end-of-Year-4) debt, and in subsequent years both interest expense and free cash flows are projected to grow at a rate of 5%.
These cash flows include all acquisition effects. Marston's cost of equity is 9.8%, its beta is 0.8, and its cost of debt is 9.0%. The risk-free rate is 5%, and the market risk premium is 6.0%.
