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

using the proceeds to repurchase stock.

Answer:
Before the recapitalization 

rs = rRF + bold(RPM) 
11.00% 
DPS = EPS = (EBIT)(1 – T)/Shares 
$6.00 
P0 = DPS/rs 
$54.55 
Shares repurchased = Bonds issued/P0 
91,667 
After the recapitalization 

rs = rRF + bnew(RPM) 
12.00% 
DPS = EPS = (EBIT – rd ´ Bonds)(1 – T)/Shares 
$8.31 
P0 = DPS/rs 
$69.23
