1) Calculate the past growth earnings,

2) What is next expected dividends per share, D1. (D0 = 0.40(\$7.10) = \$2.84). Assume that the past growth rate will continue.

3) What is the cost of retained earnings, rr, for Greenwell Company?

10.On January 1, 2019, the total assets of the McGarvey Company were \$270 million. The first present capital structure, which follows, is considered optimal. Assume that they have no short-term debt.

Long-term debt \$135,000,000
Common Equity                                         135,000,000
_____________
Total Liabilities and Equity \$270,000,000

New bonds will have a 10% coupon rate and will be sold at par. Common stocks are currently selling at \$60 a share, can be sold to net the company \$54 a share. Stockholders required rate of return is estimated to be 12%, consisting of a dividend yield of 4% and an expected growth rate of 8% (the next expected dividend is \$2.4 so \$2.4/\$60 = 4%). Retained earnings are estimated to be \$15 million. The marginal corporate tax rate is 20%. Assuming that all asset expansion (Gross expenditure plus fixed assets plus related working capital) is included in the capital budget, the amount of the capital budget, ignoring depreciation, is 160,000,000

1. To maintain the present capital structure, how much capital budget must McGarvey finance by equity?
2. How much of the new equity funds needed will be generated internally and externally?
3. Calculate the cost of each of the equity components.
4. Calculate WACC.

Answer to Question 1:

Face Value = \$1,000
Current Price = \$1,104

Annual Coupon Rate = 7.00%
Semiannual Coupon Rate = 3.50%
Semiannual Coupon = 3.50% * \$1,000
Semiannual Coupon = \$35

Time to Maturity = 8 years
Semiannual Period to Maturity = 16

Let Semiannual YTM be i%

\$1,104 = \$35 * PVIFA(i%, 16) + \$1,000 * PVIF(i%, 16)

Using financial calculator:
N = 16
PV = -1104
PMT = 35
FV = 1000

I = 2.69%

Semiannual YTM = 2.69%
Annual YTM = 2 * 2.69%
Annual YTM = 5.38%
