1) Why is the capital budgeting decision such an important process?

Why are managers

focused on cash flows rather than on net income while analyzing capital budgeting
project? Explain, how would you incorpoarte risk in capital budgeting analysis
!apital budgeting is an important process since the future "iability of a firm depends on
it #or a firm to grow it needs to in"est in assets $hese in"estments are large in "alue and
ha"e a long time frame and are decided under the capital budgeting process %f the
process is not followed correctly, a firm may in"est in incorrect projects and may in"est a
large amount of money and not get returns which would be disastrous for the firm
!apital budgeting projects are analyzed based on cash flows since cash flows are tangible
and the firm needs to pay in cash for either ac&uiring assets or paying for expenses or to
the in"estors 'et income is only a book "alue and does not represent anything tangible
(isk is incorporated in capital budgeting through change in discounting rate ) higher
rate for higher risk and a lower rate for lower risk
*) What are real options? Why it is important for managers to determine the "alue of real
options in the capital budgeting decisions? +sing an example explain how you can
determine the "alue of a real option in the capital budgeting decision
(eal option are options which allow a firm to change the course of its capital budgeting
decisions after the project has started (eal options would allow a firm to terminate the
project before maturity or to delay the introduction of the product
%t is important to determine the "alue of real options so that managers can understand the
impact of incorporating the real options in the project %f the project ',- is higher with
real options then the options should be incorporated
$he "alue of real option is determined by calculating the ',- of the project with the
option and without the option $he difference in ',- is the "alue of the option #or
example, a real option could be to abandon the project after * years of operation #irst we
calculate the ',- as if the project would run for its life and then with the option of
abandonment $he difference in ',-s is the "alue of the real option
.) Why do firms issue stock di"idends? !omment on the following statement/ 0% ha"e a
stock that promises to pay a *1 percent stock di"idend e"ery year, and therefore
guarantees that % will break e"en in 2 years0
#irms issue stock di"idend either to conser"e cash and still be paying a di"idend or to
reduce the price of the stock which will be lower with the stock di"idend
$he statement is not correct ) stock di"idend while increasing the number of shares with
the in"estors also results in a proportionate reduction in price and so the total wealth of
the shareholder does not change 3o with stock di"idends, the shareholders has the same
wealth and without stock di"idends and so there is no break e"en
4) What are the three sources 5balance sheet may help you) of corporate financing?
Explain how managers make decisions on %,67s and the role of in"estment banking firm
in the %,6
$he three sources of financing are
a 8ebt
b ,referred stock
c !ommon stock
9anager make decisions on %,6 when a firm wants to go public :oing public increases
the capacity of the firm to raise more capital which it would not be able to do as a pri"ate
entity ;arge companies ha"e need for capital for their growth and so going public
pro"ides a source of e&uity capital
$he in"estment banking firm would help in arri"ing at the price at which the shares
would be sold to the public %t may also help in making the sale either by underwriting the
issue or by doing it on a best effort basis
2) <ased on the understanding of the corporate "aluation model, identify at least three
"ariables that you belie"e affect the "alue of the firm <riefly, explain how the identified
"ariables affect the "alue of the firm
$he corporate "aluation model pro"ides the framework for "aluing companies $he three
"ariables are
a :rowth rate in sales = ) higher growth rate would result in higher "alue as the cash
flows of the firm impro"e with higher sales
b 6perating profitability = $he higher growth in sales would translate into higher net
income through higher operating profitability )s sales increase, if the expenses do not
increase in proportion to the sales, the operating profitability will impro"e and so the net
income and cash flows would be higher
c Weighted a"erage cost of capital = $he cash flows are discounted at W)!! to get the
"alue of the firm ;ower the W)!!, higher is the "alue of firm
>) )n analyst is interested in using the <lack?3choles model to "alue call option on the
stock of )<! !orporation $he )nalyst has accumulated the following information/
