i. Find the market value of Randolph Corporation before the ex-dividend date is:

MV = Shares outstanding×Market price = 150,000,000×$20 = $3 billion.

ii. The market value of Randolph Corporation after the ex-dividend date is:

MV = 3 - 0.1 = $2.9 billion.

iii. Dividend per share is: D = 100/150 = $0.66.

The price per share of Randolph Corporation after the ex-dividend date is:

20 - 0.66 = $19.33.
