5. Present value with periodic rates. Letâ€™s follow up with Sam Hinds, the dentist, and his remodeling project (Chapter 4, Problem 12). The cost of the equipment for the project is $18,000, and he will finance the purchase with a 7.5% loan over six years. Originally, the loan called for annual payments. Redo the payments based on quarterly payments (four per year) and monthly payments (twelve per year). Compare the annual cash outflows of the two payments. Why does the monthly payment plan have less total cash outflow each year? Original Problem from Chapter 4, Problem 12 to go with Chapter 5 Problem 5: 12. Payments. Sam Hinds, a local dentist, is going to remodel the dental reception area and add two new workstations. He has contacted A-Dec, and the new equipment and cabinetry will cost $18,000. A-Dec will finance the equipment purchase at 7.5% over a six-year period. What will Hinds have to pay in annual payments for this equipment? Chapter 5: Problem 7 7. Future value with periodic rates. Matt Johnson delivers newspapers and is putting away $15.00 every month from his paper route collections. Matt is eight years old and will use the money when he goes to college in ten years.

Chapter 5: Advanced Problem 1a & 1b 1. Monthly amortization schedule. Sherry and Sam want to purchase a condo at the coast. They will spend $650,000 on the condo and are taking out a loan for the whole amount for the condo for twenty years at 7.0% interest. a. What is the monthly payment on the mortgage? Construct the amortization of the loan for the twenty years in a spreadsheet to show the interest cost, the principal reduction, and the ending balance each month. b. Then change the amortization to reflect that after ten years, Sherry and Sam will increase their monthly payment to $7,500 per month. When will they fully repay the mortgage with this increased payment if they apply all the extra dollars above the original payment to the principal?

Changing WACC and optimal choice. Austin Enterprises is currently an all-equity firm. The firm is considering selling debt (bonds) and retiring some of the equity. However, at each level of debt, debt becomes more expensive (cost of debt is rising), and the riskiness

of the equity also rises with more and more debt. Using a spreadsheet, determine the best combination of debt and equity for Austin Enterprises if ·

The current beta of Austin Enterprises is 0.85.

·

The current market return is 12%.

·

The current risk-free rate is 3%.

·

The total equity is 20,000,000 shares at $25 per share.

·

Debt is sold in units of $2,000,000.

·

The first unit of debt has a cost of 7.5%.

·

The tax rate of Austin Enterprises is 40%.

· For each additional unit of debt (each additional $2,000,000), the cost of debt rises by 0.85%, and the beta of Austin Enterprises rises by 0.025. Where is the WACC the lowest?

If the initial cost of working capital is $500,000 for items such as teapots, teacups, saucers, and napkins, should Farbuck’s open this new shop if it will be in business for only five years?

ICS wants to take around $400,000 of its cash and invest in marketable securities. They anticipate receiving around $7.5% interest on their investment and would like to have it held for 10 years. What will be the FV of this $400,000 investment? 4. ICS believes they will only gain a 6% return on their $400,000 investment. Using the Rule of 72, how many years will it take to double their investment?

5. ICS plans on expanding their plant and will fund $2,000,000. Part of the funding will come from cash, but the balance of $775,000 will be financed. The interest rate will be 5% and ICS plans on borrowing the funds for 4 years. Prepare a loan amortization schedule for the 4 years with 5% interest for the $775,000 and assume making one payment per year. Show the schedule. 6. Using your 2015/2016 Income Statement and Balance Sheet, add a column for percentage of total. Compute the percentages for each line item for the financial statements. For the 2015 Income Statement, what is the percentage of COGS as compared to total sales? Is this figure reasonable and what is COGS and why is it important to a company? 7.
