Study Session 8: Corporate Finance: Financing and Control Issues

Growth Capital Expenditure

A company will initially outsource its electric scooter parts. But manufacturing these parts in-house beginning in 2016 will imply changes to an existing factory. This factory cost €7 million three years ago and had an estimated useful life of 10 years. Fromm is evaluating two scenarios:

Scenario 1: Sell the existing factory for €5 million. Build a new factory costing €30 million with a useful life of 10 years.

Scenario 2: Refit the existing factory for €27 million.

Corporate Finance - easy for bankers?

Started studying the part - and I feel like the whole Corporate Finance part in Level II is doable without much studying for say, Investment Bankers with DCF modeling and valuation experience/skills.

Anyone had the same feeling for this part?

Cash and Stock Merger Offer

If we are making an offer with a mix of cash and stock, do we first work with the cash component or the stock component?

R25 - Corporate Governance Q25

Hi guys, how’s everyone doing? Was wondering if there’s anything wrong with the answers provided? Cost of equity in the table clearly states 9.7% for 10/90 Debt/Equity. But in the answer it’s 9%. Am I missing something here?

Corporate Finance

For the practice problem 23rd from the curriculum, the answer says Repurchasing shares or paying a dividend would increase the debt weight, which would reduce the WACC. How does this happen? I mean if you repurchase shares, it would increase debt only is you use debt financing. What if you use your excess cash? How will that reduce WACC? And, how does paying a dividend increase debt??
Also, does repurchasing shares decrease equity by the repurchased amount? 

R26 - M&A (Corporate Finance) - Example 10


Can anybody explain the conclusion drawn from example 10 of the curriculum.

1.  Cash option  -   premium 60 million

2.  Stock Option -  premium is 67 million

3.  Mixed option -  premium is 64 million

Still the conclusion drawn is for stock option why the acquirer pay the high premium.
