What is the price today of a two-year, default-free security with a face value of \$1000 and an
annual coupon rate of 6%? Does this bond trade at a discount, at par, or at a premium?

This bond trades at a premium. The coupon of the bond is greater than each of the zero-coupon yields,
so the coupon will also be greater than the yield to maturity on this bond. Therefore, it trades at a
6-23.
Prices of zero-coupon, default-free securities with face values of \$1000 are summarized in the
following table:
Suppose you observe that a three-year, default-free security with an annual coupon rate of 10%
and a face value of \$1000 has a price today of \$1183.95. Is there an arbitrage opportunity? If so,
show specifically how you would take advantage of this opportunity. If not, why not?
First, figure out if the price of the coupon bond is consistent with the zero-coupon yields implied by the
other securities.

Summit Systems will pay a dividend of \$1.46 this year. If you expect Summit’s dividend to grow
by 5.1% per year, what is its price per share if its equity cost of capital is 11.2%?
P = 1.46 / (11.2% – 5.1%) = \$23.93

Canadian-based mining company El Dorado Gold (EGO) suspended its dividend in March 2016
as a result of declining gold prices and delays in obtaining permits for its mines in Greece.
Suppose you expect EGO to resume paying annual dividends in two years time, with a dividend
of \$0.25 per share, growing by 2% per year. If EGO’s equity cost of capital is 10%, what is the
value of a share of EGO today?
The price in one year is P(t+1) = Div(t+2)/(r – g) = 0.25/(.10 – .02) = \$3.125
The price today is P(t) = P(t+1)/(1+r) = \$3.125/1.1 = \$2.84

Cooperton Mining just announced it will cut its dividend from \$4.07 to \$2.47 per share and use
the extra funds to expand. Prior to the announcement, Cooperton’s dividends were expected to
grow at a 2.8% rate, and its share price was \$50.31. With the new expansion, Cooperton’s
dividends are expected to grow at a 4.9% rate. What share price would you expect after the
announcement? (Assume Cooperton’s risk is unchanged by the new expansion.) Is the expansion
a positive NPV investment?
Estimate rE: rE = Div Yield + g = 4.07 / 50.31 + 2.8% = 10.89%
New Price: P = 2.47/(10.89% – 4.9%) = \$41.24
In this case, cutting the dividend to expand is not a positive NPV investment.

Halliford Corporation expects to have earnings this coming year of \$2.77 per share. Halliford
plans to retain all of its earnings for the next two years. For the subsequent two years, the firm
will retain 48% of its earnings. It will then retain 19% of its earnings from that point onward.
Each year, retained earnings will be invested in new projects with an expected return of 27.21%
per year. Any earnings that are not retained will be paid out as dividends. Assume Halliford’s
share count remains constant and all earnings growth comes from the investment of retained
earnings. If Halliford’s equity cost of capital is 9.5%, what price would you estimate for Halliford
stock?
See the spreadsheet for Halliford’s dividend forecast (g = retention rate × return on new investment):

From year 5 on, dividends grow at constant rate of 5%. Therefore,
P(5) = 4.88/(9.5% – 5%) = \$108.54
Then P(0) = 2.33 / 1.0953 + 2.64 / 1.0954 + (4.64+108.54) / 1.0955= \$75.51

Heavy Metal Corporation is expected to generate the following free cash flows over the next five
years:
After then, the free cash flows are expected to grow at the industry average of 4.3% per year.
Using the discounted free cash flow model and a weighted average cost of capital of 14.4%:
a.
Estimate the enterprise value of Heavy Metal.
b.
If Heavy Metal has no excess cash, debt of \$280 million, and 35 million shares outstanding,
estimate its share price.
a.
V(4) = 82.7 / (14.4% – 4.3%) = \$818.81
V(0) = 51.3 / 1.144 + 69.7 / 1.144 2 + 79.5 / 1.1443 + (74.3 + 818.81) / 1.1444 = \$672.64

P = (V + C – D)/N = (672.64 + 0 – 280)/35 = \$11.22
In addition to footwear, Kenneth Cole Productions designs and sells handbags, apparel, and
other accessories. You decide, therefore, to consider comparables for KCP outside the footwear
industry.
a.
Suppose that Fossil, Inc., has an enterprise value to EBITDA multiple of 11.08 and a P/E
multiple of 17.09. What share price would you estimate for KCP using each of these
multiples, based on the data for KCP in Problems 25 and 26?
b.
Suppose that Tommy Hilfiger Corporation has an enterprise value to EBITDA multiple of
7.07 and a P/E multiple of 17.36. What share price would you estimate for KCP using each of
these multiples, based on the data for KCP in Problems 25 and 26?
a.
Using EV/EBITDA: EV = 51.3 × 11.08 = 568.4 million, P = (568.4 + 107 – 3.3) / 23 = \$29.22
Using P/E: P = 1.67 × 17.09 = \$28.54
b.
Using EV/EBITDA: EV = 51.3 × 7.19 = 368.85 million, P = (368.85 + 107 – 3.3) / 23 = \$20.55
Using P/E: P = 1.67 × 17.36 = \$28.99.
