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 1.60 (given its target capital structure). Vandell has \$10.91 million in debt that trades at par and pays an 7.1% interest rate. Vandell’s free cash flow (FCF0) is \$1 million per year and is expected to grow at a constant rate of 6% a year. Vandell pays a 35% combined federal and state tax rate. The risk-free rate of interest is 4% and the market risk premium is 4%. Hastings’ first step is to estimate the current intrinsic value of Vandell.
