analyst for a pension plan managing a global large-cap fund internally. Sandell is concerned about one of the fund’s larger holdings, auto parts manufacturer Kruspa AB. Kruspa currently operates in 80 countries, with the previous year’s global revenues at h5.6 billion. Recently, Kruspa’s CFO announced plans for expansion into China. Sandell worries that this expansion will change the company’s risk profile and wonders if he should recommend a sale of the position. Sandell provides Knudsen with the basic information. Kruspa’s global annual free cash flow to the firm is h500 million and earnings are h400 million. Sandell estimates that cash flow will level off at a 2 percent rate of growth. Sandell also estimates that Kruspa’s after-tax free cash flow to the firm on the China project for next three years is, respectively, h48 million, h52 million, and h54.4 million. Kruspa recently announced a dividend of h4.00 per share of stock. For the initial analysis, Sandell requests that Knudsen ignore possible currency fluctuations. He expects the Chinese plant to sell only to customers within China for the first three years. Knudsen is asked to evaluate Kruspa’s planned financing of the required h100 million with a h80 public offering of 10-year debt in Sweden and the remainder with an equity offering.

    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.
