An all - equity firm with 200,000 shares outstanding. Antwerther Inc, has \$2,000,000 of EBIT, which is expected to remain constant in the future.The company pays out all its earnings, so earnings pet share(EPS) equal dividends per share(DPS).Its tax rate is 40%.
The company is considering issuing \$5,000,000 of 10.0% bonds and using the proceeds to repurchase stock.
The risk- free rate is 6.5%, the market risk premium is 5.0% and beta is currently 0.90, but the CFO belives beta would rise to 1.10 if the recapitalization occurs.
Assuming that the shares can be repurchased at the price that existed prior to the recapitalization , what would the price be following the recapitalization?
