Question

Consider a project with free cash flows in one year of $90,000 in a weak economy or $117,000 in a strong economy, with each outcome being equally likely. The initial investment required for the project is $80,000, and the project's cost of capital is 15%. The risk-free interest rate is 5%. Suppose that you borrow only $45,000 in financing the project. According to MM proposition II, what is the firm's equity cost of capital?

**(PLEASE provide formulas, Step-by-step process for all
sections/parts, * *don't use spreadsheet, I need to see the
complete work out for all parts**)**

Answer #2

Answer:-

Present value (equity cash flows - unlevered) = { (0.5) x $90,000 + (0.5) x $117,000 } / 1.15

= [$45,000 + $58500] / 1.15

= $103500 / 1.15

= $90,000

Given ,

Cost of capital of levered equity = Cost of capital of unlevered equity + premium proportional to debt-equity ratio

Numerically, r_{E} = r_{U} + D/E (r_{U}
- r_{D})

r_{E} = .015 + [45000 / (90000 - 45000)] x (.15 - .05) =
0.25 or **25%**

**So, according to MM proposition II, the firm's equity
cost of capital = 25%**

Using the Modigliani-Miller (MM) theory in a perfect market, you
want to evaluate a project and how to finance it. The project has
free cash flows in one year (year 1) of $90 in a weak economy or
$120 in a strong economy. There is 75% chance that the economy is
strong. The initial investment required for the project is $80, and
the project's cost of capital is 10%. The risk free interest rate
is 5%. Suppose that to raise...

You are recruited by the founder of a start-up company to advise
her on the optimal capital structure for her company. The sole
project of the company will require an initial outlay (at date 0)
of £150,000, and is expected to generate a single cash flow in one
year (at date 1). The project cash flow at date 1 will take one of
two equally likely values depending on the state of the economy: if
the economy is strong, then...

The firm Lando expects cash flows in one year’s time of $90
million if the economy is
in a good state or $40 million if it is in a bad state. Both
states are equally likely.
The firm also has debt with face value $65 million due in one
year.
Lando is considering a new project that would require an
investment of $30 million
today and would result in a cash flow in one year’s time of $47
million in...
