($ in thousands)

                              2007      2008                                                      2007        2008

Cash                     $ 2650    2810                 accounts payable          $ 1350     $ 1000

Notes to Financial Statements: The rate and amount of the Company’s total long-term, fixed rate debt outstanding for the Company in 2009 and 2010 remained unchanged. The 12/31/10 market rate on debt for companies with a similar risk profile and maturity as Acme’s was 12%. The market value of Acme’s long-term debt on 12/31/10 was $3 million. Acme’s market capitalization on 12/31/10 was $6 million. As of 12/31/10, the risk free rate was 3%, the expected market rate of return was 11%, and Acme’s beta was 1.50. Due to a large net-operating-loss-cany-forward and substantial tax credits, Acme paid no taxes in 2009 and 2010, and it is NOT expected that the Company will be paying any taxes in the next 5 years.

Based on the financial statements above, if Acme wanted to prepay its long-term debt on

12/31/10 assuming there isn’t a prepayment penalty in effect, for what amount would Acme be able to repurchase its debt relative to its Par Value?

a. $2,000 million

b. $4,000 million

c. at a discount

d. at a premium

e. at Par Value

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
