You are asked to provide market-based FX rate forecasts suitable for translating future cash flows into \$s, to be used for valuation purposes. Assume that you are at the end of year 0.

Accordingly, the US parent, Harkes Inc., plans to translate US CoC’s and apply those to the Baht cash flows. The following data are relevant.

However, you might want to try to work out this small taxation problem. Problem #3.9: The foreign and domestic corporate tax rates are shown below. “Withholding Taxes” are taxes paid on dividends or interest remitted, over and above income taxes. What taxes does the corporate entity pay, if dividends are remitted immediately? Dividends equal earnings in this case. Assume that a tax treaty exists in this case. A tax treaty allows taxes paid abroad to be fully deductible from taxes paid in the US. Taxable Income = \$200,000 (translated to \$s). Tax Rates U.S. Foreign Withholding 34% 28% 5% Problem #3.10: Consider the valuation of a start-up, Robinho Enterprises, without an established track record of positive cash flows and profits. Its current revenue is \$2.45/share. In its IPO prospectus, the investment bank proposes a share price of \$16.50, for 10,000,000 shares. (Hint: Use the Perkins approach. Additional details are in Tom.com) (1) (2) (3) (4) What average growth rate does Robinho’s stock price need to achieve in order to make this a good investment? What should the price of Robinho’s share have to be in 5 years? What revenues must Robinho generate in 5 years’ time? What is the implied CAGR? 9 FBE 436 Problem Set #3 Problem #3.11: Crouch Inc. is contemplating a foreign acquisition. The Finance VP assigned the task of valuing the foreign company to a team of young experts, and they produced an apparently very thorough estimate of the PV of the company cash flows. Their estimate is \$140 Million. The VP noticed however, that 70% of the value of the company came from the “Terminal Value”. Here is what she found, upon closer examination.
