Hello, i need this assignment completed asap, i also need detailed calculations to each problem as well, i appreciate any help.

attached is the original copy of my assignment!


  1. Use the following information to answer questions a through d.

Market Values             Current cap. Structure       Proposed cap. Structure

      Assets                          $15 million                        $15 million

      Debt                            $0                                      $6 million

      Equity                         $15 million                        $9 million

      Share price                  $25.00                                     $22.50

      Shares outstanding      600,000                                   ???

      Bond Interest rate       N/A                                         8%

There are no taxes. EBIT is expected to be $2.5 million, but could be as high as $3.5 million if an economic expansion occurs, or as low as $2 million if a recession occurs. All values are market values.

What is EPS under the current capital structure if there is a recession?

What is EPS during an expansion for the proposed capital structure?

What is ROE for the proposed capital structure if the expected state occurs?

How many shares are outstanding under the proposed capital structure?

Repeat questions a thru d with 40% tax rate. Explain the difference between no taxes and with taxes.

What is the levered cost of equity if the unlevered weighted average cost of capital is 12%?

What is the value of the equity if the EBIT is actually $2.5 million?

What would be the stock price of the company if the EBIT is $2.5 million?

Its established common stock’s dividend payout ratio after the preferred stock dividends payment is 50 percent and it is expected to grow at a constant rate of 9 percent in the future. The tax rate is 40 percent and investors requiring a rate of return of 15% on the common stock.

Preferred stock is trading at a price of $40 per share, with a dividend of $4.8. The 30-year long-term debt with a par value of $1,000 was issued 10 years ago with a coupon rate of 8%.  The bonds can be refinanced at the market interest rate of 10 percent today.

Karman has the following investment opportunities:

Defense                                   1,000,000                    $219,120                     7 years

Comm. and Space                   1,000,000                    202168                        9         

Part I

Determine the book value and market value of the capital structure.

Determine the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) for each of the capital structure.

Calculate the internal rate of return (IRR) of each project and compare them against the book value and market value weighted average cost of capital.

Which projects should Karman accept?

What is the total investment budget?

Part II

Although the average project in the Defense Segment was substantially riskier than communications and Space Products segment and Engineered Materials segment, the project evaluation process did not formally incorporate risk considerations. This lack of risk consideration was more evident in the Communications and Space Products segment and Engineered Materials segments, since their productions, earnings, and profits were highly correlated and fluctuated with the economy. As a result, these segments provided a very stable income to the company. On the other hand, the Defense segment provides military products and professional services to the United States and allied governments, and their prime defense contractors and as a result, the earnings and profits of the Defense segment tended to be tied to the world geo-political environment.

Karman has gathered the following beta for each segments based on comparable companies:

Project             Defense           Com. Space     Eng. Materials                        

Beta                 1.50                 1.20                 0.80                


The risk-free rate is 5% and rate of the market risk premium 9.0%.

Calculate the required rate of return for each project?

Compare the required rate of return with expected rate of return, according to the risk characteristics of each projects; which project is appropriate to take?
