Answer to Question #6530 in Economics of Enterprise for LaMarcus Streeter

Question #6530
2. Leak Inc. forecasts the free cash flows (in millions) shown below. If the weighted average cost of capital is 11% and FCF is expected to grow at a rate of 5% after Year 2, what is the Year 0 value of operations, in millions? Assume that the ROIC is expected to remain constant in Year 2 and beyond (and do not make any half-year adjustments).
Year: 1 2
Free cash flow: -$50 $100

a. $1,456
b. $1,529
c. $1,606
d. $1,686
e. $1,770
Expert's answer
The answer is A.

Using the dividend growth model we have: C2 = FCF of year 3 / (WACC - Growth). FCF of year 3 = 100*(1+0.05) = 105. Thus, C2 = 105 / (11%-5%) = 1,750.
Now we need to calculate NPV: data:image/png;base64,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 where t - the time of the cash flow; r - the discount rate (the rate of return that could be earned on an investment in the financial markets with similar risk.); the
opportunity cost of capital; Ct is the net cash flow (the amount of cash, inflow minus outflow) at time t.

NPV = (50)/(1+0,11) + 100/(1+0,11)^2 + 1750/(1+0,11)^2 = 1 456, 46.
