Assignment 4 Solutions. Problem 1: (a). The maximum price that Hertz should be willing to pay for the fleet of cars with all-equity funding is the price that makes the NPV of the transaction equal to zero. NPV = -Purchase Price + PV[(1- T C )(Earnings Before Taxes and Depreciation)] + PV(CCA Tax Shield) Let P equal the purchase price of the fleet. NPV = -P + (1-0.40)($300,000)A 5 0.10 + PVCCATS 10 . 5 0 ( ) [] [ ] 1 0.40 0.25 1 0.50(0.10) [ ][ ] 0.2727 0.25 0.10 1 0.10 InvestmentxTaxRatexCCA DiscountRate PVCCATS CCA DiscountRate DiscountRate Px x P + = ++ + == Set the NPV equal to zero. 0 = -P + (1-0.40)($300,000)A 5 0.10 + 0.2727P 0.7273P= $682,341.62 P= $938,184.55 Therefore, the most that Hertz should be willing to pay for the fleet of cars with all-equity funding is $938,184.55. (b). The adjusted present value (APV) of a project equals the net present value of the project if it were funded completely by equity plus the net present value of any financing side effects. In Hertz’s case, the NPV of financing side effects equals the after-tax present value of the cash flows resulting from the firm’s debt. APV = NPV(All-Equity) + NPV(Financing Side Effects)

Therefore, if Hertz uses $600,000 of five-year, 8% debt to fund the $975,000 purchase, the Adjusted Present Value (APV) of the project is $ 49,910.74. (c ). To determine the maximum price, set the APV=0 = NPV (All equity) + NPV(Loan) 0 = -P + (1-0.40)($300,000)A 5 0.10 + 0.2727P + $600,000 – (1 – 0.40)(0.05)($600,000)A 5 0.08 – [$600,000/(1.08) 5 ] 0 = -0.7273P +682,341.62 + 600,000 – 71,868.78 – 408,350 0.7273P = 802,122.84 P = 1,102,877.55 Problem 2: The adjusted present value of a project equals the net present value of the project under all-equity financing plus the net present value of any financing side effects. In the joint venture’s case, the NPV of financing side effects equals the after-tax present value of cash flows resulting from the firms’ debt. APV = NPV(All-Equity) + NPV(Financing Side Effects) NPV(All-Equity) NPV = -Initial Investment + PV[(1 – T C )(Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, and Depreciation )] + PV(CCA Tax Shield) Assuming that the company has other assets in the class, 1 0.50( ) [] [ ] 1 20,000,000 0.25 0.30 1 0.50(0.12) [ ][ ] $3,380,102 0.30 0.12 1 0.12 InvestmentxTaxRatexCCA DiscountRate PVCCATS CCA DiscountRate DiscountRate xx + = ++ + == NPV = -$20,000,000 + [(1-0.25)($3,000,000)A 20 0.12 ] + 3,380,102 = -$20,000,000 + $16,806,248 + 3,380,102
