Michaelangelo, Inc., an art firm has debt of $40,000 (market value).




Michaelangelo, Inc., an art firm has debt of $40,000 (market value). The cost of debt for the firm before-tax is 18.33%. The tax rate for the firm is 40%. If the firm also has equity of $60,000 (market value) whose cost is 17%, what would be the firm's cost of capital assuming that the firm uses only these two sources of financing? (Points: 3);12.93%;14.6%;16.39%;17%;Question 2.2. Expansion Video is considering expanding its video rental library to 8,000 tapes. The purchase price of the additional videos will be $80,000 and the shipping cost is another $4,000. To house the tapes, the owner will have to spend another $10,000 for display shelves, increase net working capital by $1,000, and interest expenses will add another $3,000 to the operating cost. What is the net investment to Expansion Video for this project? (Points: 3);$95,000;$99,000;$84,000;$107,000;Question 3.3. If I had a net investment of $40,000 with cash inflows amounting to $20,000 per year for three years (years 1-3) what would be the discounted payback on the project if the cost of capital is 10%? If I had a cutoff of two years in discounted payback, would I accept this project? (Points: 3);1.35 years, accept;1.95 years, reject;2.35 years, reject;exactly 3 years, reject;Question 4.4. Time Turman, Inc., is considering a drill press costing $30,000 and is expected to have a 10 year life. The drill press will be depreciated on a straight-line basis over 10 years to a zero estimated salvage value. This machine is expected to reduce the firm's cash operating costs by $4,500 per year. If the firm is in the 40 percent marginal tax bracket, determine the annual net cash flows generated by the drill press. (Points: 3);$4,500;$900;$5,700;$3,900;Question 5.5. Parker Chemicals purchased a hexene extractor 10 years ago for $120,000. It is being depreciated on a straight-line basis over 15 years to an estimated salvage value of zero. It can be sold today for $10,000. Parker is considering purchasing a new more efficient extractor that would cost $270,000 installed and would be depreciated as a 10-year MACRS asset. The company's marginal tax rate is 40%. Determine the NINV if the old extractor is sold and the new one is purchased. (Points: 3);$252,000;$228,000;$260,000;$248,000;Question 6.6. Consider a capital expenditure project with an expected 10-year economic life and forecasted revenues equal to $40,000 per year, cash expenses are estimated to be $29,000 per year. The cost of the project equipment is $23,000, and the equipment's estimated salvage value at the end of the project is $9000.The equipment's $23,000 cost will be depreciated using MACRS depreciation (7-year asset). The project requires a $7,000 working capital investment in year 0 and another $5,000 in year 5. The company's marginal tax rate is 40%. Calculate the expected net cash flow in year 10 of the project. (Points: 3);$32,000;$27,000;$24,000;$18,000;Question 7.7. If I have an initial outlay of $560 on a project and it has cash inflows of $290 per year for three years, would I invest in the project if I had a cost of capital of 13.6%. Assume I use the Internal rate of return method. (Points: 3);Yes, I would. Calculated IRR exceeds 13.6%.;No, I would not. Calculated IRR is lower than cost of capital.;The project would not add to the company and therefore I would not invest in it. IRR is not the method but based strictly on payback I would be forced to refuse this project.;Question 8.8. What is the discounted payback period for a project with an initial outlay of $40,000 and cash inflows of $20,000 per year for 3 years. Assume that the cost of capital is 10%. (Points: 3);3 years;2.94 years;1.78 years;2.35 years;no discounted payback for this project;Question 9.9. Enjam Loving, Inc., is considering two mutually exclusive projects. Project A and Project B both have an initial outlay of $500. The cash flows from project A (in dollars) are: 100 in year 1, 200 in year 2, 300 in year 3 and 400 in year 4. Project B pays 400 dollars in year 1, 300 dollars in year 2, 200 dollars in year 3 and 100 dollars in year 4. Loving uses both NPV and Simple payback period criterion for decision making. Assuming a cost of capital of 6%, which project would the company choose? (Points: 3);A;B;B since A's NPV is higher;A since B's PBP is lower;Neither A nor B;Question 10.10. The stock price of Webliography Inc., a web search engine company is currently $31.51 and the current quarterly dividend is $0.25. Consensus estimates for Webliography indicate a growth rate in earnings of 10% into the foreseeable future. If Webliography plans to sell 1 million shares to raise new capital for expansion, what is the cost of new equity if the issuance costs are 8%?

If the cash flows from the project are 200 in year 1, 600 in year 2, 800 in year 3, and 1,400 in year 4, what would be the MIRR for the project given that the cost of capital for the project is 10%?

Mid-South Utilities will sell $10 million of $100 par value preferred stock that will pay an annual dividend of $9.75. Mid-South will receive $93.98 per share after flotation costs. What is the cost of the preferred issue? (Points: 3);10.37%;10.50%;10.23%;9.75%;Question 16.16.
