Issuing Equity Based On Sales Projections

Question

Quick Ltd needs to raise capital to undertake a new project. If they consider the firm’s shares are currently over-valued by the market they will raise funds by issuing shares. Otherwise they plan to organise a variable rate loan with their investment bank. The finance officer at Quick Ltd. has gathered the following information:

Current price of Quick Ltd’s shares is $5.50. Last dividend paid to shareholders was 40c per share. The sales and accounting departments have estimated that earnings are expected to grow at a healthy rate of 8% pa. However, this rate is only expected to be sustainable for the next three years. After the three years it is expected that the earnings growth rate will decrease to a stable 4% pa, and continue at 4% pa into the foreseeable future. The finance department has estimated that given Quick Ltd’s beta and their projections of market rate, the appropriate discount rate for Quick Ltd’s equity is 13% pa. Should Quick Ltd raise the required capital by issuing equity?

 

Summary

The question belongs to Finance and it discusses whether or not a company should issue equity with a given set of assumptions and forecasts.

    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
