You are given the following information: Stockholders' equity as reported on the firm’s balance sheet = $5.5 billion, price/earnings ratio = 20, common shares outstanding = 200 million, and market/book ratio = 1.6. The firm's market value of total debt is $6 billion, the firm has cash and equivalents totaling $250 million, and the firm's EBITDA equals $2 billion. What is the price of a share of the company's common stock? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest cent. $ What is the firm's EV/EBITDA? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places.
Book Value of equity = $5.5 billion
Market-to-Book Value ratio = Market Value of equity/Book Value of equity
1.6 = Market Value of equity/$5.5 billion
Market Value of equity = $8.8 billion
No of shares outstanding = 0.20 billion or 200 million
a). Price of Common Equity = Market Value of equity/No of shares outstanding
= $8.8 billion/0.2 billion
= $44 per share
So, the price of a share of the company's common stock is $44
b). Enterprise Value = Market Value of equity + Market Value of Debt - Cash & Cash Equivalents
= $8.8 billion + $6 billion - $0.25 billion
Enterprise Value(EV) = $14.55 billion
Firm's EV/EBITDA = $14.55 billion/$2 billion
= 7..28 times
So, the firm's EV/EBITDA is 7.28 times
