The factory will operate for 20 years; however at the end of the fifth tenth and fifteenth year of operation refurbishment costs will be $800000 . At the end of its 20 year lifespan the land can be resold for $1260000 . There is a 70% probability that the factory’s net operating cash flows will be $1527421 ; however there is a 30% chance that net cash flows will only be $1023812 . You may assume that net operating cash flows flow at the end of each year. a) What are the Expected net operating cash flows per year? $ Enter Answer (1 Mark)(Round your answer to 2 decimal places) =7000*10678 74746000 V=D+P+E=Total Value of Firm’s Capital =74756000+0+402003000 4.77E+08 Tc=Firm’s coporate tax Rate=30% rdebt=return on firm’s debt=YTM =3.78% rpreferred=Return on firm’s preferred shares =0 requity=Return on firm’s common shares Use CAPM=12.15% 12.15
