Forecast the parts of the income statement and balance sheet that are necessary for calculating free cash flow.b. Calculate free cash flow for each projected year. Also calculate the growth rates of free cash flow each year to ensure that there is constant growth (that is, the same as the constant growth rate in sales) by the end of the forecast period.c. Calculate operating profitability (OP = NOPAT/Sales), capital requirements (CR = Operating capital/Sales), and expected return on invested capital (EROIC = Expected NOPAT/Operating capital at beginning of year). Based on the spread between EROIC and WACC, do you think that the company will have a positive Market Value Added (MVA = Market value of company? Book value of company = Value of operations? Operating capital)?d. Calculate the value of operations and MVA. (Hint: First calculate the horizon value at the end of the forecast period, which is equal to the value of operations at the end of the forecast period.) Assume that the annual growth rate beyond the horizon is 6%. e. Calculate the price per share of common equity as of 12/31/2010.PROBLEMS 1?5(14?1)Residual Distribution ModelAxel Telecommunications has a target capital structure that consists of 70% debt and 30% equity. The company anticipates that its capital budget for the upcoming year will be $3 million.

The company wants to maintain a target capital structure which is 60% debt and 40% equity. The company forecasts that its net income this year will be $600,000. If the company follows a residual distribution model and pays all distributions as dividends, what will be its payout ratio?(14?3)Dividend PayoutThe Wei Corporation expects next year?s net income to be $15 million. The firm?s debt ratio is currently 40%. Wei has $12 million of profitable investment opportunities, and it wishes to maintain its existing debt ratio. According to the residual distribution model (assuming all payments are in the form of dividends), how large should Wei?s dividend payout ratio be next year?(14?4)Stock RepurchaseA firm has 10 million shares outstanding with a market price of $20 per share. The firm has $25 million in extra cash (short-term investments) that it plans to use in a stock repurchase, the firm has no other financial investments or any debt. What is the firm?s value of operations, and how many shares will remain after the repurchase?(14?5)Stock SplitGamma Medical?s stock trades at $90 a share.
