2. ACE Corp was formed five (5) years ago by the original founders and some venture capitalists (VC) with five million shares, three million held by the VCs priced at $2.50 per share and 2 million held by the founders priced at $0.50 per share. ACE estimates its free cash flows that will be available to the enterprise next year at $5,200,000. Since the venture is now in its maturity stage, ACEs free cash flows are expected to continue to grow at a 6% annual compound growth rate in the future. A weighted average cost of capital (WACC) for the venture is estimated at 15%. Interest-bearing debt owed by ACE is $17.5 million. In addition, the venture also has surplus cash of $4 million.
a. Based on the above information, estimate the current total value of ACE Corp.
c. How much of the value of ACE would belong to the VCs and how much to the founders?
3. The GAMA firm is proposing to acquire the ACE Products venture described in item 2 above. GAMA estimates that ACEs free cash flow for next year could be improved to $5.5 million because of synergistic benefits in the form of operating or distribution economies. The potential acquirer also believes that ACEs perpetuity growth rate could be increased to 7 % annually. However, the riskiness of the cash flows would be increased causing the appropriate WACC to increase to 16 %. Interest-bearing debt owed by ACE is $17.5 million. In addition, the venture also has surplus cash of $4 million. ACE Products has five million shares of common stock outstanding.
a. Determine ACEs total value from the perspective of GAMA. What is ACEs equity worth to GAMA in dollar amount and on a per share basis?
? What is GAMAs intrinsic value per share?
