Question

1.Golden Gate Construction Associates, a real estate developer and building contractor in San Francisco, has two sources of long-term capital: debt and equity. The cost to Golden Gate of issuing debt is the after-tax cost of the interest payments on the debt, taking into account the fact that the interest payments are tax deductible. The cost of Golden Gate?s equity capital is the investment opportunity rate of Golden Gate?s investors, that is, the rate they could earn on investments of similar risk to that of investing in Golden Gate Construction Associates. The interest rate on Golden Gate?s $90 million of long-term debt is 10 percent, and the company?s tax rate is 40 percent. The cost of Golden Gate?s equity capital is 15 percent. Moreover, the market value (and book value) of Golden Gate?s equity is $135 million. Required: Calculate Golden Gate Construction Associates? weighted-average cost of capital. 2.Refer to the data in the preceding exercise for Golden Gate Construction Associates. The company has two divisions: the real estate division and the construction division. The divisions? total assets, current liabilities, and before-tatx operating income for the most recent year are as follows: Division Total Assets Current Liabilities Before-Tax Operating Income Real estate .................................................................... $150,000,000 $9,000,000 $30,000,000 Construction ................................................................. 90,000,000 6,000,000 27,000,000 Required: Calculate the economic value added (EVA) for each of Golden Gate Construction Associates? divisions. (You will need to use the weighted-average cost of capital, which was computed in the preceding exercise.)
