Ward Corp. is expected to have an EBIT of \$2,200,000 next year. Depreciation, the increase in net working capital, and capital spending are expected to be \$171,000, \$97,000, and \$121,000, respectively. All are expected to grow at 20 percent per year for four years. The company currently has \$16,000,000 in debt and 810,000 shares outstanding. After Year 5, the adjusted cash flow from assets is expected to grow at 3.5 percent indefinitely. The company’s WACC is 8.6 percent and the tax rate is 40 percent. What is the price per share of the company's stock?

FCF1 = EBIT x (1 - tax) + Depreciation - NWC - Capex

= 2,200,000 x (1 - 40%) + 171,000 - 97,000 - 121,000

= \$1,273,000

FCF2 = FCF1 x (1 + g) = 1,273,000 x (1 + 20%) = 1,527,600 and similarly,

FCF3 = 1,833,120, FCF4 = 2,199,744, FCF5 = 2,639,692.8

Terminal Value, TV = FCF5 x (1 + g) / (WACC - g) = 2,639,692.8 x (1 + 3.5%) / (8.6% - 3.5%) = \$53,570,236.24

Firm Value, FV = FCF1 / (1 + WACC) + FCF2 / (1 + WACC)^2 +.... + (FCF5 + TV) / (1 + WACC)^5

= 1,273,000 / 1.086 + 1,527,600 / 1.086^2 + ... + (2,639,692.8 + 53,570,236.24) / 1.086^5

= \$42,690,438

Equity Value = Firm Value - Debt = 42,690,438 - 16,000,000 = 26,690,438

Share Price = Equity / No. of shares = 26,690,438 / 810,000 = \$32.95
