For both firms, fixed assets account for 70% of the total assets, and cash available for investment accounts for the remaining 30%. The market value of the fixed assets is assumed to remain unchanged from year to year. Both firms have debt in their capital structure. The promised future value of the debt of Firm A, which is due in exactly a year, is \$55 million. The rate of return on Firm A’s debt in both promised and the expected terms is 10%. All of Firm B’s debt is also due in exactly a year. Its promised future value is \$168.75 million. The promised rate of interest on Firm B’s debt is 12.5%. Recall that the promised future value of debt equals the sum of the principal and interest. (a): Prepare the balance sheet for the two firms in terms of market value.

### What students are saying

• 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.
