Brandtly Industries invests a large sum of money in R&D; as a result, it retains and reinvests all of its earnings. In other words, Brandtly does not pay any dividends, and it has no plans to pay dividends in the near future. A major pension fund is interested in purchasing Brandtly's stock. The pension fund manager has estimated Brandtly's free cash flows for the next 4 years as follows: \$3 million, \$7 million, \$11 million, and \$15 million. After the fourth year, free cash flow is projected to grow at a constant 6%. Brandtly's WACC is 15%, the market value of its debt and preferred stock totals \$50 million; and it has 21 million shares of common stock outstanding.

What is the present value of the free cash flows projected during the next 4 years

=3/(1+15%)^1+7/(1+15%)^2+11/(1+15%)^3+15/(1+15%)^4

=23.71 million or 23710678.56

What is the firm's horizon, or continuing, value

=(15*(1+6%))/(15%-6%)

=176.67 million or 176666666.67

What is the firm's total value today

=3/(1+15%)^1+7/(1+15%)^2+11/(1+15%)^3+15/(1+15%)^4+((15*(1+6%))/(15%-6%))/(1+15%)^4

=124.72 million or 124720418.62

What is an estimate of Brandtly's price per share

=(124.72-50)/21

=3.56
