8.On January 1, the
total market value of the Tysseland Company was \$60 million. During the year,
the company plans to raise and invest \$25 million in new projects. The firm’s

optimal. Assume that there is no short-term debt.

New bonds will have an 6% coupon rate, and they will be sold at
par. Common stock is currently selling at \$30 a share. The stockholders’
required rate of return is estimated to be 12%, consisting of a dividend yield
of 4% and an expected constant growth rate of 8%. (The next expected dividend
is \$1.20, so \$1.20/\$30 = 4%.) The marginal corporate tax rate is 40%.
a. In order to maintain the present capital structure, how much of
the new investment must be financed by common equity?
\$
b. Assuming there is sufficient cash flow such that Tysseland can
maintain its target capital structure without issuing additional shares of
equity, what is its WACC? Round your answer to two decimal places.

c. Suppose now that there is not enough internal cash flow and the
firm must issue new shares of stock. Qualitatively speaking, what will happen
to the WACC?

Davis Industries must choose between a gas-powered and an
electric-powered forklift truck for moving materials in its factory. Since both
forklifts perform the same function, the firm will choose only one. (They are
mutually exclusive investments.) The electric-powered truck will cost more, but
it will be less expensive to operate; it will cost \$21,500, whereas the
gas-powered truck will cost \$17,960. The cost of capital that applies to both
investments is 13%. The life for both types of truck is estimated to be 6
years, during which time the net cash flows for the electric-powered truck will
be \$6,860 per year and those for the gas-powered truck will be \$4,600 per year.
Annual net cash flows include depreciation expenses.
Calculate the NPV for each type of truck. Round your answers to
the nearest dollar.

After discovering a new gold vein in the Colorado mountains, CTC
Mining Corporation must decide whether to mine the deposit. The most
cost-effective method of mining gold is sulfuric acid extraction, a process
that results in environmental damage. Before proceeding with the extraction,
CTC must spend \$900,000 for new mining equipment and pay \$165,000 for its
installation. The gold mined will net the firm an estimated \$350,000 each year
over the 5-year life of the vein. CTC’s cost of capital is 17%. For the purposes
of this problem, assume that the cash inflows occur at the end of the year.
a. What is the project’s NPV? Round your answer to the nearest
dollar.
\$ ________
What is the project’s IRR? Round your answer to two decimal places.

b. Should this project be undertaken if environmental impacts were
not a consideration?
_________________
c. How should environmental effects be considered when evaluating
this, or any other, project?
_________________
I. Environmental effects should be ignored since they would have no
effect on the project’s profitability.
II. Environmental effects should be treated as sunk costs.
III. Environmental effects could be added by estimating penalties or any
other cash outflows that might be imposed on the firm to help return the land
to its previous state (if possible).
