Question;2. Illinois Industries has decided to borrow money by issuing perpetual bonds with a coupon rate of 10 percent, payable annually. The one-year interest rate is 10 percent. Next year, there is a 30 percent probability that interest rates will increase to 12 percent, and there is a 70 percent probability that they will fall to 6 percent.;Required;(a);What will the market value of these bonds be if they are noncallable?(Do not include the dollar sign ($).Round your answer to 2 decimal places. (e.g., 32.16));Market value;$;(b);If the company decides instead to make the bonds callable in one year, what coupon will be demanded by the bondholders for the bonds to sell at par?

Earnings before interest and taxes, EBIT, are projected to be $23,000 if economic conditions are normal. If there is strong expansion in the economy, then EBIT will be 33 percent higher. If there is a recession, then EBIT will be 57 percent lower. Money is considering a $64,800 debt issue with a 7 percent interest rate. The proceeds will be used to repurchase shares of stock. There are currently 4,600 shares outstanding. Assume Money has a tax rate of 40 percent.;Required;(a);Calculate earnings per share, EPS, under each of the three economic scenarios assuming the company goes through with the recapitalization. Also calculate the percentage changes in EPS when the economy expands or enters a recession.(Do not include the dollar signs ($). Negative amount should be indicated by a minus sign.

Alpha Corporation, an all-equity firm, has 9,800 shares of stock outstanding, currently worth $18 per share. Beta Corporation uses leverage in its capital structure. The market value of Beta?s debt is $50,000, and its cost of debt is 15 percent. Each firm is expected to have earnings before interest of $45,000 in perpetuity. Neither firm pays taxes.

Because of this, the company?s profits are driven by the amount of work Tom does. If he works 40 hours each week, the company?s EBIT will be $411,000 per year, if he works a 50-hour week, the company?s EBIT will be $511,000 per year. The company is currently worth $2.51 million. The company needs a cash infusion of $1.28 million, and it can issue equity or issue debt with an interest rate of 8.5 percent.

Both companies will remain in business for one more year. The companies' economists agree that the probability of the continuation of the current expansion is 85 percent for the next year, and the probability of a recession is 15 percent. If the expansion continues, each firm will generate earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of $2.41 million. If a recession occurs, each firm will generate earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of $915,000. Steinberg's debt obligation requires the firm to pay $805,000 at the end of the year. Dietrich's debt obligation requires the firm to pay $1.18 million at the end of the year. Neither firm pays taxes.

The company fully depreciates all its rental cars over five years using the straight-line method. The new cars are expected to generate $148,000 per year in earnings before taxes and depreciation for five years. The company is entirely financed by equity and has a 32 percent tax rate. The required return on the company's unlevered equity is 13.9 percent, and the new fleet will not change the risk of the company.;Requirement 1;What is the maximum price that the company should be willing to pay for the new fleet of cars if it remains an all-equity company?(Do not include the dollar sign ($).
