1. (TCO A) Which of the following is NOT normally regarded as being a barrier to hostile takeovers? (Points : 5)
Abnormally high executive compensation
Targeted share repurchases
Shareholder rights provisions
Restricted voting rights
Poison pills

2. (TCO F) Which of the following statements is correct? (Points : 5)
The NPV, IRR, MIRR, and discounted payback (using a payback requirement of 3 years or less) methods always lead to the same accept/reject decisions for independent projects.
For mutually exclusive projects with normal cash flows, the NPV and MIRR methods can never conflict, but their results could conflict with the discounted payback and the regular IRR methods.
Multiple IRRs can exist, but not multiple MIRRs. This is one reason some people favor the MIRR over the regular IRR.
If a firm uses the discounted payback method with a required payback of 4 years, then it will accept more projects than if it used a regular payback of 4 years.
The percentage difference between the MIRR and the IRR is equal to the project’s WACC.

...Week 1 – Homework 1 Mini Case A) I think that corporate finance is important to all managers because it is the basic component of how the business is run. It provides the managers with skills to identify corporate strategies and forecast the funding requirements for their company. It helps them understand how the company is running. B) There are 3 forms a business : a. A proprietorship is what most businesses are when then start because they are fairly easy to start. They usually are the only people involved in starting and running the business. A disadvantage is that they are responsible for all of the business’ debt and the government can come after them personally. b. A partnership is where you may have 2 people invested n a company. This business form is similar to a proprietorship in regards to liability and capital for making the business grow. Both parties are equally responsible for the debt of the business. These limited partnerships are either a LLP, which stands for limited liability partnership or the more common one a limited liability company, also known as LLC. c. A corporation is the last of the business forms. This is not as easy as the previous two. Corporations have to go through the state and adhere to the guidelines given to them. A corporation can keep living in the business world even once the owners die. They also have shares to sell to the stakeholders. This can help bring in more capital to the company...

...Mini Case (p. 45) a. Why is corporate finance important to all managers? It is important because successful companies must not only be able to obtain high valued product and satisfy customers; they must be able to generate enough cash to compensate investors who provide the capital. Corporate finance helps to do this by giving managers tools to evaluate any proposal, such as marketing, production, and strategy and be able to implement only the projects that add value for the investors. b. Describe the organizational forms a company might have as it evolves from a start-up to a major corporation. List the advantages and disadvantages of each form. Companies can have three organizational forms which are proprietorships, partnerships and corporations. Companies usually start as a proprietorship which is owned by one individual. It is generally easy and inexpensive to startup; it has fewer regulations than other organizational forms; and the income is not subjected to corporate taxation but is taxed as part of the proprietor’s personal income. However, the disadvantages of a proprietorship are that it may be difficult for a sole owner to generate needed capital for growth; personal liabilities are unlimited for the business debt, which can have implications on the owner’s personal assets such as property; and the life of the company is limited to the life of the founder. A general partnership is the same as a sole proprietorship in that it is a business that...

...1. (TCO A) Which of the following statements is NOT correct? (Points : 5)        The corporate valuation model can be used both for companies that pay dividends and those that do not pay dividends.        The corporate valuation model discounts free cash flows by the required return on equity.        The corporate valuation model can be used to find the value of a division.        An important step in applying the corporate valuation model is forecasting the firm's pro forma financial statements.        Free cash flows are assumed to grow at a constant rate beyond a specified date in order to find the horizon, or terminal, value. | 2. (TCO F) Which of the following statements is correct? (Points : 5)        If a project with normal cash flows has an IRR greater than the WACC, the project must also have a positive NPV.        If Project A's IRR exceeds Project B’s, then A must have the higher NPV.        A project’s MIRR can never exceed its IRR.        If a project with normal cash flows has an IRR less than the WACC, the project must have a positive NPV.        If the NPV is negative, the IRR must also be negative. | 3.

What is corporate governance? Agency problems occur when managers act in a way that benefits themselves and acts in ways that are not in the best interests of the stockholders or owners of the company. Corporate governance is the set of rules that are used to direct the company’s actions towards its employees, “shareholders, creditors, customers, competitors, and community” and is a means by which agency problems are addressed (Brigham, Eugene F. . Financial Management: Theory & Practice, 13th Edition. South Western Educational Publishing, 03/2010. p. 8). Corporations go public through an initial public offering (IPO) which is when the company’s stock is sold to the public at large. After an IPO, corporate growth is supported by taking out loans...

(Points: 10)        It is generally more expensive to form a proprietorship than a corporation because, with a proprietorship, extensive legal documents are required.        Corporations face fewer regulations than sole proprietorships.        One disadvantage of operating a business as a sole proprietorship is that the firm is subject to double taxation, at both the firm level and the owner level.        One advantage of forming a corporation is that equity investors are usually exposed to less liability than in a regular partnership.        If a regular partnership goes bankrupt, each partner is exposed to liabilities only up to the amount of his or her investment in the business. 2. (TCO G) Which of the following statements is CORRECT?

Its assets totaled $3 million at the end of 2010. Baxter is already at full capacity, so its assets must grow at the same rate as projected sales. At the end of 2010, current liabilities were $1 million, consisting of $250,000 of accounts payable, $500,000 of notes payable, and $250,000 of accruals. The after tax profit margin is forecasted to be 5%, and the forecasted payout ratio is 70%. Use the AFN equation to forecast Baxter’s additional funds needed for the coming year.

The three advantages are easily and inexpensively form, subject to few government regulations, and income is not subject to corporate taxation but taxed as part of the proprietor’s personal income.

The equipment's basic price is $70,000, and it would cost another $10,750 to modify it for special use by your firm. The spectrometer, which falls into the MARCS 3-year class, would be sold after 3 years for $30,000. Use of the equipment would require an increase in net working capital (spare parts inventory) of $4,000.
