# Acquisition of TGT Inc by ACQ Corp

Question

ACQ Corp. is analyzing the possible acquisition of TGT Inc. ACQ estimates the acquisition will increase its total after-tax annual cash flows by \$7.6 million indefinitely. The appropriate discount rate for the incremental cash flows is 10 percent. The financial analyst of ACQ has collected the following information:

 ACQ TGT Pre-merger stock price \$42.00 \$20.00 Number of shares outstanding 12 million 8 million

ACQ and TGT have agreed on a transaction value of \$24 per share for TGT’s stock, but are negotiating methods of payment: an all-cash offer, and a stock exchange offer.

Assuming neither company has debt, calculate the followings:

a) Synergy and takeover premium for both of the methods.

b) NPV for each method.

c) Assume the synergy is re-estimated to be \$80million based on the recent market information. What is the maximum cash price per share that could be paid for AWA?

d) Assume the synergy remains to be \$80million. Calculate the takeover premium for a cash and stock exchange offer (\$6.5 cash per share of TGT plus 0.35 shares of ACQ per share of TGT).
