Valuation Exercise / Practice Problems Individual write-ups are due. FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT ONLY, YOU MAY CHOOSE TO TURN IN A PRINT COPY (BY THE START OF OUR SCHEDULED CLASS TIME) RATHER THAN POSTING TO CANVAS. Exhibits for #1 (valuation case) are also posted in excel on Canvas. PROBLEM #1, Mini Case, Siena Farms. Please answer based on the description following. Exhibits should contain sufficient notations to explain your calculations 1. What is the value of the project assuming the firm was entirely equity financed? What are the annual projected free cash flows? What discount rate is appropriate? 2. Value the project using the Adjusted Present Value (APV) approach assuming the firm raises $750 thousand of debt to fund the project and keeps the level of debt constant in perpetuity. 3. Value the project using the Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) approach assuming the firm maintains a constant 25% debt-to-market value ratio in perpetuity. 4. What are the end-of-year debt balances implied by the 25% target debt-to-value ratio? (hint: each year, the debt outstanding will equal 25% of the value you calculate for the value as of that year, i.e. the PV of FCFs beyond that year) 5. Using the debt balances from question 4, use the Capital Cash Flow (CCF) approach to value the project. 6. How do the values from the APV, WACC, and CCF approaches compare? Why?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
