#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

Solution :- Total Shares Outstanding = 100 million shares

Therefore total Rights = 100 millions ( As one right per share )

Now For Purchase 1 Share Rights Require = 20

Now in 100 Million Rights , Shares Purchased = 100 million / 20 = 5 million

Price per share = \$20

Therefore amount of money that Luther will raise through its rights offering = 5 million * \$20 = \$100 millions

Therefore Correct Answer is (A)
