Answer on Economics of Enterprise Question for LaMarcus Streeter
3. Based on the corporate valuation model, the value of a company’s operations is $1,200 million. The company’s balance sheet shows $80 million in accounts receivable, $60 million in inventory, and $100 million in short-term investments that are unrelated to operations. The balance sheet also shows $90 million in accounts payable, $120 million in notes payable, $300 million in long-term debt, $50 million in preferred stock, $180 million in retained earnings, and $800 million in total common equity. If the company has 30 million shares of stock outstanding, what is the best estimate of the stock’s price per share?
a. $24.90 b. $27.67 c. $30.43 d. $33.48 e. $36.82
b. $27.67 Market Value of company = 1200M + 100M = 1300M MV of company = MV of debt + MV of preferred + MV of equity = 420M + 50M + MV Equity => MV Equity = 1300M - 420M - 50M = 830M (assume book value of debt approximately = MV debt) => share price = 830/30 = $27.67
I am writing to express my gratitude for all the help this website offered to me in times of need. I believe this website is not a "cheating" source for "lazy" students, but an important source for those of us who are burdened with more than we can bear, have little to no facilities to handle the stress and workload, and are in serious need of help given at an affordable price. Thank you so very much to all those involved with this website who have helped students like me in desperate need.
