Unformatted text preview: Chapter 23: Options and Corporate Finance: Extensions and Applications 23.1 d1 = [(r + 2) t]/ 2 t = [(0.06 + (0.25)2 ) 4]/ N(d1) = 0.7673 d2 = d1 2 t = 0.73 ( 0.25) 2 ( 4) = 0.73 ( 0.25) 2 ( 4) = 0.23 N(0.23) = 0.5910 C = 50(0.7673) 50e-0.06 4 (0.5910) = $38.365 $23.245 = $15.12 Total Value: $15.12 $1 million = $302,400 $50 23.2 Option A: use discount rate of 6% 4 Total pay value = $1mil 0.06 + 1.2096 million Option B: 4 Total pay value = $1.25 mil 0.06 The question is whether the incremental $1.25 mil straight pay value is greater or lower than the options value of $1.2096 mil. If we use the riskless rate of 6%, the cost of additional $0.25 mil is $0.8663 mil (As opposed to $1.2096 mil). Holding everything else constant, Mr. Hurt is right and the Board is wrong. It's cheaper for the firm to pay Mr. Hurt a $1.25 mil straight pay without opitons. However, diversification may make the $1.25 mil straignt pay better off for Mr. Hurt. From the bounding effect, the firm will be better off to offer Mr. Hurt the options. 23.3 Fixed plant: r = 12% 150,000( $20) { 0.5 (150,000) ( $20) + 0.5 (150,000 / 2)( $20) } 9.12 0 NPV = -1million + + 1 1 (1 + 0.12) (1 + 0.12) = -1million + $2,678,571.43 + $10,704,073.24 = $12,382,644.67 Flexible plant: NPV = -1.5million + 150,000( $10) (1 + 0.12) 1 + {0.5 (150,000) ( $10) (1 + 0.12) 9 0.12 + 0.5 (150,000)( $15) 9.12 0 1 } = -1.5million + $1,339,285.71 + $8,920,061.03 = $8,759,346.74 TGC should choose the fixed plant since it has a larger NPV.
