a. The theoretical price of Icing Candy’s shares immediately after the bonus issue is: 9×8/(8 + 1) = $8.

b. If Casper has 1,000 shares in Icy Candy before Icing Candy announced the 1 for 8 bonus issue, then:

i. Casper will get 1000/8 = 125 bonus shares.

ii. Find the value of Casper’s stockholding in Icy Candy before the bonus issue is:

1000×9 = $9,000.

After the bonus issue the value of Casper’s stockholding in Icy Candy is:

(1,000 + 125)×8 = $9,000.
