1.Being Human, Inc., recently issued new securities to finance a new TV show. The project cost $13.8 million, and the company paid $705,000 in flotation costs. In addition, the equity issued had a flotation cost of 6.8 percent of the amount raised, whereas the debt issued had a flotation cost of 2.8 percent of the amount raised. If the company issued new securities in the same proportion as its target capital structure, what is the companyâ€™s target debt-equity ratio?
2.CullyÂ Company needs to raise $55 million to start a new project and will raise the money by selling new bonds. The company will generate no internal equity for the foreseeable future. The company has a target capital structure of 70 percent common stock, 15 percent preferred stock, and 15 percent debt. Flotation costs for issuing new common stock are 9 percent, for new preferred stock, 6 percent, and for new debt, 2 percent.

3.Photochronograph Corporation (PC) manufactures time series photographic equipment. It is currently at its target debt-equity ratio of .6. Itâ€™s considering building a new $63 million manufacturing facility. This new plant is expected to generate aftertax cash flows of $7.9 million in perpetuity. The company raises all equity from outside financing. There are three financing options:
1.A new issue of common stock: The flotation costs of the new common stock would be 7.1 percent of the amount raised. The required return on the companyâ€™s new equity is 15 percent.
2.A new issue of 20-year bonds: The flotation costs of the new bonds would be 2.6 percent of the proceeds. If the company issues these new bonds at an annual coupon rate of 6 percent, they will sell at par.
Â 3.Increased use of accounts payable financing: Because this financing is part of the companyâ€™s ongoing daily business, it has no flotation costs, and the company assigns it a cost that is the same as the overall firm WACC. Management has a target ratio of accounts payable to long-term debt of .20. (Assume there is no difference between the pretax and aftertax accounts payable cost.)
What is the NPV of the new plant? Assume that PC has a 21 percent tax rate. (Do not round intermediate calculations and enter your answer in dollars, not millions, roundedÂ to the nearest whole dollar amount, e.g., 1,234,567.)Â
