Choose several peer companies for GoPro and justify your choice. Choose several valuation multiples and using comparable ratios of peer companies and GoPro financial information from prospectus, estimate the company?s hypothetical stock price on June 25, 2014. It is required for this question to list your major assumptions and properly reference sources of information that you used in your calculations.;B. Using the same peers and industry data, please estimate GoPro?s WACC Show all your data used for calculations. Again, please state all your assumptions and sources of information.;C. GoPro went public on June 26, 2014. How do your valuations compare to the company?s IPO price? How do they compare to its first trading day opening and closing prices? If your valuations differ from observed prices, can you briefly forward any possible explanations?;D. In February 2011 Sageview Capital Master, L.P., acquired 7,894,635 shares of Series A preferred stock for aggregate consideration of $20.0 million. The stock paid $1.05 dividend in February 2012, and at IPO was converted to common shares. If Sageview sold shares at IPO, what its annualized return would be? Did Sageview actually sell at IPO?

Once GoPro sells the license, it receives a one-time license fee of $ 50 M, but it cannot manufacture and sell HERO itself anymore. The current value of HERO line to GoPro is $60 M. Each year this value can go up 5% or down 20% in comparison with the previous year. If the risk-free rate is 4%, how much this agreement is worth to GoPro? What should the company do over three years? Please provide as many details as possible in your explanations and support them by numbers.
