Problem 22-01
Valuation of Merger Target
Hastings Corporation is interested in acquiring Vandell Corporation. Vandell has 1 million shares outstanding and a target capital structure consisting of 30% debt; its beta is 1.30 (given its target capital structure). Vandell has $11.82 million in debt that trades at par and pays an 8% interest rate. Vandell’s free cash flow (FCF_{0}) is $2 million per year and is expected to grow at a constant rate of 6% a year. Vandell pays a 40% combined federal and state tax rate. The risk-free rate of interest is 3% and the market risk premium is 8%. Hastings’ first step is to estimate the current intrinsic value of Vandell.
What are Vandell’s cost of equity and weighted average cost of
capital? Round your answer to two decimal places. Do not round
intermediate calculations.
Cost of equity: %
WACC: %

$ /share
a) | After tax cost of debt = 8%*(1-40%) = | 4.80% | |
Cost of equity per CAPM = 3%+1.3*8% = | 13.40% | ||
WACC = 4.80%*30%+13.40%*70% = | 10.82% | ||
b) | Intinsic value of operations = 2*1.06/(0.1082-0.06) = | $ 43.98 | million |
c) | Value of debt | $ 11.82 | million |
Value of common equity = 43.98-11.82 = | $ 32.16 | million | |
Number of shares | 1 | million | |
Intinsic valueof Vandell's stock | $ 32.16 |
