In order to establish an immediate presence in the area, the company is considering the purchase of the privately held Joe’s Party Supply.

The company’s market capitalization is $360 million, and the required return on equity is 14 percent. Joe’s currently has debt outstanding with a market value of $35.5 million. The EBIT for Joe’s next year is projected to be $16 million. EBIT is expected to grow at 8 percent per year for the next five years before slowing to 4 percent in perpetuity. Net working capital, capital spending, and depreciation as a percentage of EBIT are expected to be 7 percent, 13 percent, and 6 percent, respectively. Joe’s has 2.35 million shares outstanding and the tax rate for both companies is 30 percent. |

Answer #1

**1.** Joe's

Total No of Shares = 2,350,000

Total Debt = $ 35,500,000.00

EBIT = $ 16,000,000.00

Growth rate for 5 Years = 8%

Growth rate threafter = 4 %

Therefore

Net Working Capital = $ 16,000,000.00 X 0.07 = $ 1,120,000.00

Capital Spending = $ 16,000,000.00 X 0.13 = $2,080,000.00

Depreciation = $ 16,000,000.00 X 0.06 = $ 960,000.00

Market Capitalisation = Total Debt - Cash and Investment

= $ 35,500,000.00 - ($ 1,120,000.00 + $ 2,080,000.00 + $ 960,000.00) = $ 31,340,000.00

Share Price = Market Capitalisation / No. of Shares

= $ 31,340,000.00 / 2,350,000 = $ 13.34

Ans The Maximum Share Price is $ 13.34

**2.** Joe's

EV/EBITDA = 8

Therefore EV (Enterprise Value) = 8 X EBITDA

EV = 8 X $ 16,000,000.00 = $ 128,000,000.00

Share Price = EV / No. of Shares = $ 128,000,000.00 / 2,350,000 = $ 54.57

Ans The Maximum Share Price is $ 54.57
