Differentiate the Floating rate bond and junk bound
Floating Rate Bond:
It is defined as a type of bond bearing a yield that may rise and fall within a specified range
according to fluctuations in the market. The bond has been used in the housing bond market
Eurobonds: it issued from a foreign country
Junk Bonds & High Yield Bonds: Corporations that are small in size, or lack an established operating
track record are also likely to be considered speculative grade. Junk bonds are most commonly
associated with corporate issuers. They are highrisk debt with rating below BB by S&P
H Corporation’s stock currently sells for Rs.20 a share. The stock just paid a dividend of Rs.2 a share (Do = Rs.2). The dividend is expected to grow at a constant rate of 11% a year. What stock price is expected 1 year from now?
Stock Price= div+price/(1g)
Briefly explain what call provision is and in which case companies use this option. (3 marks)
The right (or option) of the Issuer to call back (redeem) or retire the bond by payingoff the Bondholders before the Maturity Date. When market interest rates drop, Issuers (or Borrowers) often call back the old bonds and issue new ones at lower interest rates
Suppose you approach a bank for getting loan. And the bank offers to lend you Rs.1, 000,000 and you sign a bond paper. The bank asks you to issue a bond in their favor on the following terms required by the bank: Par Value = Rs 1, 000,000, Maturity = 3 years
Coupon Rate = 15% p.a, Security = Machinery
You are required to calculate the cash flow of the bank which you will pay every month as well as the present value of this option. (5 marks)
Data:
Par Value = Rs 1, 000,000
Maturity = 3 years
Coupon Rate = 15% p.a,
Security = Machinery
Solution:
CF = Cash Flow = Coupon Value = Coupon Rate x Par Value
CF = 15% x 1,000,000
CF = 150000/12
Monthly CF = 12500
Assume that rD = 10%
PV = CF1/(1+rD/12)12+CFn/(1+rD/12)2x12 +..+CFn/ (1+rD/12) n +PAR/ (1+rD) n
PV = 12500/ (1 + 0.10/12)12 + 12500/ (1 + 0.10/12)2x12 + 12500/ (1 + 0.10/12)3x12 + 1000000/(1 + 0.10/12)3x12
PV = 12500/ (1.00833)12 + 12500/ (1.00833)24 + 12500/ (1.00833)36 + 1000000/(1.00833)36
PV = 11315.60425 + 10243.43196 + 9272.849775 + 741828
PV = 772660
FV = CCF (1 + rD/m )nxm  1/rD/m
FV = 12500 (1 + 10%/12)3x12  1 / 10%/12
FV = 12500 (41.779)
FV = 522237.5
PV (Coupons Annuity) = FV / (1 + rD/m) nxm
PV = 522237.5/(1 + 10%/12) 3x12
PV = 522237.5/1.348021407
PV = 387410
PV (Par) = 1,000,000 / (1.00833)36
PV (Par) = 741828
PV = PV (Coupons Annuity) + PV (Par)
PV = 387410 + 741828
PV = 1129238

Why the companies prefer to raise money through debt not through equity? (3 Marks)
Debt financing refers to any borrowed money which the entrepreneur must pay back to the lending institution. An interest rate and other terms apply. Company which are well established and profitable growth often rely on debt financing.
Equity financing is money lent in exchange for ownership in a company. New businesses can use equity financing for their startups or when they need to raise additional equity capital to offset existing debt. REASON
The debt finance company is not interested in becoming a partner in your endeavor, instead they are in business to make money from their money, letting you use it for periods of time. When seeking outside capital, whether equity or debt, remember that certain sources are familiar and like to work with particular industries. Take the time to look around and be sure that the source you are considering is wellaquatinted with your type of business.
What is the relationship between standard deviation & Risk (3 Marks)
The standard deviation is a direct measure of risk involved in the purchase of the share. The more the standard deviation, the more the stock is considered to be risky. Standard deviation is commonly used as a measure to compare two or more set of data. The price of two stocks can have same mean, but they will have different standard deviation. The stock with larger standard deviation is considered to be more risky than the stock having smaller standard deviation, because it has more variability in its mean price.
However, we should also calculate the range of data for the two stocks to make our conclusion more stronger. The range is calculated as
Range = Highest value  Lowest value.
The stock having small range is considered to be less risky than the stock with larger range.
Risk means the chance of actual outcome differing from expected outcome. Higher risk tends to result in a lower share price as shareholders demand more compensation for the greater risk in the form of higher expected returns. In nutshell, the stock having small standard deviation and range is considered as less risky than the stocks having larger standard deviation and range.
Suppose you approach a bank for getting loan. And the bank offers to lend you Rs.1, 000,000 and you sign a bond paper. The bank asks you to issue a bond in their favor on the following terms required by the bank: Par Value = Rs 1, 000,000, Maturity = 3 years
1 Company ABC wants to issue more common stock face value Rs.10. Next year the Dividend is expected to be Rs.2 per share assuming a Dividend growth rate of 10%pa. The lawyers’ fee and stock broker commission will cost Rs.1 per share. Investors are confident about company ABC so the common share is floated at market price of Rs.16 (i.e. Premium of Rs.6). If the capital structure of company ABC is entering common equity then what is the company WACC? Use Retained Earning Approach to calculate the result. (Marks=5)
Calculate Required ROR for Common Stock using Gordon’s Formula
r = (DIV1/Po) + g
Po = market price = 16
Div1 = Next Dividend = 2
G = growth rate = 10%
r = (2/16)+10% = 22.50%
Now If company wanted to issue the stock via new float then it has to pay the lawyer fee and broker commission which 1 Rs.
Net proceed = 16 – 1 = 15
r = (2/15)+10% = 22.50% = 23.33%
Find the Beta on a stock given that its expected Return is 16% the Risk free rate is 4% and the Expected return on the Market portfolio is 12% (Marks 5)
r = rRF + Beta (rM  rRF).
r=16%
Rf=4%
rM=12%
B=?
16% = 4% + Beta (12%  4%).
16%4%=Beta*8%
12%/8%=Beta
1.5=Beta
Risk free Rate is 15% and expected Market Return is 20%. FM Corporation has a bet of 1.9 and Gold Corporation has beta of 1.5. Find Expected Return on FM Corporation and Gold Corporation.
r = rRF + Beta (rM  rRF).
B=1.9
rM=20%
rRF=15%
r=15%+1.9(5%)
Gold Company:
B=1.5
rM=20%
rRF=15%
r = rRF + Beta (rM  rRF).
r=15%+1.5(5%)
EBIT of a firm is Rs. 200 and corporate tax rate, Tc is 30 %. If the firm is 100% Equity and rE is 20%. Then calculate WACC.
WACC = rD XD. + rP XP + rE XE .
WACC=0+0+20%(100)
WACC=20%
Explain the equation of EBIT when it is equal to Break Even Point. MARKS5
An indicator of a company's profitability, calculated as revenue minus expenses, excluding tax and interest. EBIT is also referred to as "operating earnings", "operating profit" and "operating income", as you can rearrange the formula to be calculated as follows:
EBIT = Revenue  Operating Expenses
Also known as Profit before Interest & Taxes (PBIT), and equals Net Income with interest and taxes added back to it.
Breakeven Point: Quantity of Sales at which EBIT = 0
EBIT = Op Revenue  Op Costs = Op Revenue  Variable Costs – Fixed Costs
= PQ  VQ  F. Where P= Product Price (Rs), Q= Quantity
or
#Units Sold, V= Variable Cost (Rs), F= Fixed Cost (Rs). So IF EBIT = 0
then PQVQF = 0 so Breakeven Q = F / (P  V)
Calculate the market value of equity for a 100% equity firm using the following information extracted from its financial statements: EBIT = Rs. 50, 000, return on equity is 12%, amount of equity is Rs. 100, 000. tax rate is 35%.
First all all we net to calculate Net income
Net income = EBIT – Interest – tax
Net income = 50,000 – 0 – (.35* 50,000) = 32,500
Now to calculate the market value of firm
Net income/ return on equity
= 32500/.12 = 270833.3
Market value of unleveraged firm (100% equity firm) equity + debit
= 270833.3 + 0
= 270833
Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of Firm is Rs.1000 and Corporate Tax Rate, Tc is 30%
If the Firm is 100% Equity (or UnLevered) and rE = 30% then what is the WACCU of Unlevered Firm?
1) Net income = EBIT  I  Tax
= 1000  0  30% (0.3)
= 700
2) Equity (UnL) = NI/Re
= 700/30% (0.3)
= 2334
3) WACC(UnL) = Equity + Debt
= 2334 + 0 So
= 2334 Here is note that wacc is equal to equity
= 30% Jitna equity k rate hoga otahi WACC ho of Unlevered firm.....
If the Firm takes Rs.1000 Debt at 10% Interest or Markup then what is the WACCL of Levered Firm? (There is no change in return in equity)
1)Net income = EBIT  I  Tax
= 1000  .1(1000)  30% (900)
2) Equity (UnL) = NI/Re
= 630/30% (0.3)
= 2100
3)WACC (L) = Equity + Debt
= 2100 + 1000
= 3100
Formula:...
WACC = Rd*(1  tc)Xd + Re*Xe
= .1*(1  0.3)*(1000/3100) + 0.3*(2100/3100)
= 0.225806
= 22.5806%
100% Equity (un – levered) firm as total Assets of Rs. 50000 weighted average cost of capital for an un – levered firm (WACCU) is 35% and cost of debt for un – levered firm (r d u ) of 20% it then adds Rs. 20000 of debt financial Risk increases cost of debts (r d L) of leverd Firm to 18% (Marks 5)
Required
What is levered firms Cost of equity (r e L)?
What will be the WACC L of levered Firm
Assuming Pure MM View  Ideal Markets: Total Market Value of Assets of Firm (V) is
UNCHANGED. Value of un levered firm = Value of levered firm. Also, WACC remains
UNCHANGED by Capital Structure and Debt.
• WACCU = WACCL = 35%
Re = cost of equity
Rd = 18 % cost of debt
E = market value of the firm's equity
D = market value of the firm's debt =
V = E + D
E/V = percentage of financing that is equity
D/V = percentage of financing that is debt
T = corporate tax rate
Re = ?
WACCu = 35%
rE,L =WACC + Debt/Equity (WACCL  rD,L)
Re = 35% + 2000/48000(35%18%) 35.70%
WACC = E/V *Re + D/V * Rd * (1 T)
Now by plugging values
V= E+D = 48000+2000 = 50000
35% = (48000/50000) * Re + (2000/50000)* 18%
By rearranging equation
35% = 9.6 Re + .0072
.96Re = 35%  .0072
Re = (35%.0072) / .96 = 35.70%
Cost of Equity for Levered Firm
= rE,L = Risk Free Interest Rate + Business Risk Premium + Financial Risk Premium.

Solution Part A:
P1 = P0(1 + g)
P1= 20(1.11)
P1= 22.2
Solution part B:
ROR = D1 / P0 + g
ROR = (2 * 1.11/20) + 0.11
ROR = (2.22/20) + 0.11
ROR = 0.111 + 0.11
ROR = 0.221*100
ROR = 22.1%
Question No: 29 ( Marks: 3 )
Define interest rate risk and investment risk.
Interest rate risk
Interest rate risk is the risk (variability in value) borne by an interestbearing asset, such as a loan or a bond, due to variability of interest rates. In general, as rates rise, the price of a fixed rate bond will fall, and vice versa. Interest rate risk is commonly measured by the bond's duration.
Investment Risk
The uncertainties attached while making an investment that the investment may not yield the expected returns.
OR
Possibility of a reduction in value of an insurance instrument resulting from a decrease in the value of the assets incorporated in the investment portfolio underlying the insurance instrument. This reduction can also be effected by a change in the interest rate.
Question No: 30 ( Marks: 3 )

P0 = 18.29
Question No: 31 ( Marks: 5 )
There are some risks (Unique Risk) that we can diversify but some of the risks (Market risks) are not diversifiable. Explain both types of risk.
Unique Risk
Allocation of proportional risk to all parties to a contract, usually through a risk premium. Also called risk allocation.
In finance and economics, systematic risk (sometimes called aggregate risk, market risk, or undiversifiable risk) is vulnerability to events which affect aggregate outcomes such as broad market returns, total economywide resource holdings, or aggregate income. In many contexts, events like earthquakes and major weather catastrophes pose aggregate risks—they affect not only the distribution but also the total amount of resources. If every possible outcome of a stochastic economic process is characterized by the same aggregate result (but potentially different distributional outcomes), then the process has no aggregate risk.
Question No: 32 ( Marks: 5 )
Hammad Inc. is considering two alternative, mutually exclusive projects. Both projects require an initial investment of Rs. 10,000 and are typical, averagerisk projects for the firm. Project A has an expected life of 2 years with aftertax cash inflow of Rs. 6,000 and Rs. 8,000 at the end of year 1 and 2, respectively. Project B has an expected life of 4 years with aftertax cash inflow of Rs. 4,000 at the end of each of next 4 years. The firm’s cost of capital is 10 percent.
If the projects cannot be repeated, which project will be selected, and what is the net present value?
Net Present Value:
Project A: Initial investment, I0 = Rs 10,000
Cash flow in yr 1, CF1 = Rs 6000
Cash flow in yr 2, CF2 = Rs 8000
Discount rate, I = 10 %
No. of yrs, n = 4
NPV =  I0 + CF1/(1+i)n + CF2/(1+i)n + CF3/(1+i) n + CF4/(1+i) n
= 10,000 + 6000/(1.10) + 8000/(1.12)2
= 10,000 + 5454.54 + 6611.57
=  10,000 +12066.11
= 2066.11
Project B: Initial investment, I0 = Rs 10,000
Cash flow in yr 1, CF1 = Rs 4000
Cash flow in yr 2, CF2 = Rs 4000
Cash flow in yr 3, CF3 = Rs 4000
Cash flow in yr 4, CF4 = Rs 4000
Discount rate, I = 10 %
No. of yrs, n = 4
NPV =  I0 + CF1/(1+i)n + CF2/(1+i)n + CF3/(1+i) n + CF4/(1+i) n
= 10,000 + 4000/(1.10) + 4000/(1.10)2+ 4000/(1.10)3+ 4000/(1.10)4
= 10,000 + 3636.36 + 3305.8 + 3005.25 + 2732.053
= 10,000 + 12679.463

Question No: 31 ( Marks: 5 )
(a) What is correlation of coefficient?
Correlation Coefficient ( AB or “Ro”):
Risk of a Portfolio of only 2 Stocks A & B depends on the Correlation between those 2 stocks.
The value of Ro is between 1.0 and +1.0
If Ro = 0 then Investments are Uncorrelated & Risk Formula simplifies to Weighted Average Formula. If Ro = + 1.0 then Investments are Perfectly Positively Correlated and this means that
Diversification does not reduce Risk.
If Ro =  1.0, it means that Investments are Perfectly Negatively Correlated and the Returns (or Prices or Values) of the 2 Investments move in Exactly Opposite directions.
In this Ideal Case, All Risk can be diversified away. For example, if the price of one stock increases by 50% then the price of another stock goes down by 50%.
In Reality, Overall Ro for most Stock Markets is about Ro = + 0.6.it is very rough rule of thumb. It means that correlations are not completely perfect and you should remember that if the correlation coefficient is +1.0 then it is not possible to reduce the diversifiable risk.
This means that increasing the number of Investments in the Portfolio can reduce some amount of risk but not all risk
(b) What are efficient portfolios?
Efficient Portfolios are those whose Risk & Return values match the ones computed using Theoretical Probability Formulas. The Incremental Risk Contribution of a New Stock to a Fully
Diversified Portfolio of 40 UnCorrelated Stocks will be the Market Risk Component of the New Stock only. The Diversifiable Risk of the New Stock would be entirely offset by random movements in the other 40 stocks. Adding a New Stock to the existing Portfolio will create more Efficient Portfolio Curves. The New Stock will contribute its own Incremental Risk and Return to the Portfolio.

We have discussed about two types of securities.
Direct claim securities:
Stocks (Shares):
It is defined as equity paper representing ownership, shareholding. Appears on Liabilities side of Balance Sheet
Bonds: It is a debt paper representing loan or borrowing. These are long term debt instruments.
A security analyst has estimated the following returns on the stocks of 4 large companies:
Weightage Expected Returns
Company A 25% 12%
Company B 25% 11.5%
Company C 25% 10.%
Company D 25% 9.5%
You are required to calculate the expected return on this portfolio.
Expected Portfolio Return Calculation:
rP * = rA xA + rB xB + rC xB + rD xD
= 12% (25/100) + 11.5 %( 25/100) + 10%(/25/100) + 9.5%(25/100)
= 3% + 2.8757% + 2.5 + 2.375
= 10.75%

Why a person should invest in shares? Give reasons.
Capital growth
Over the longer term, shares can produce significant capital gains through increases in share prices. Some companies also issue free or bonus shares to their shareholders as another way of passing on company profits or increases in their net worth.
Diversifying your investments
in order to diversify your investment portfolio, you will probably have part of your money in the share market. You may buy shares directly or through managed funds or your superannuation.
Easy buying and selling
Compared to other investments like property, shares are very portable. They can be bought and sold quickly, and the brokerage on the transactions is lower than for a property transaction. Unlike selling a property, you can sell part of your share parcels.

What are Strike Price and Option Price?
Option Price and Strike Price are the part or terminology of Option Contract.
Option Price: Option price is the price which the option buyer pays to the option seller. It is also know as Option Premium.
Strike Price: The price specified in the option contract is known as the strike price or the exercise price.
What does the meaning of standard deviation in finance? (2.5)
Some analysts use standard deviation to predict how a particular investment or portfolio will perform. They calculate the range of the investment's possible future performances based on a history of past performance, and then estimate the probability of meeting each performance level within that range.
Question No: 30 ( Marks: 3 )
What is risk averse assumption?
When we talk in terms of risk averse, we know that most investors are psychologically risk averse. In case of two investments offer with the same prospective return most investor would choose the one with the lower risk or standard deviation or spread or votality. In other words most of the investors are not major gamblers. Gamblers would choose that project which appeals to investors greed by offering upsite return of 30% plus 10% = 40%. The consequences on the share price, the higher the risk of share the higher its rate of return and the lower its market price, so any investor will choose surely with the low risk and he will take care of very closely risk averse assumption while finalizing any project.
Question No: 31 ( Marks: 5 )
How negatively correlated investments behave in a market?
If Ro =  1.0, it means that Investments are Perfectly Negatively Correlated and the Returns (or Prices or Values) of the 2 Investments move in Exactly Opposite directions. In this Ideal Case, All Risk can be diversified away. For example, if the price of one stock increases by 50% then the price of another stock goes down by 50%.
Question No: 32 ( Marks: 5 )
What types of shares are available in the market?
The following are the shares available normally in the market;
1. Preferred Stock: These stocks have regular Constant / Fixed Future Dividends Certain for the Preferred Shareholders. Use old Perpetuity Cash Flow Pattern and formulas to estimate theoretical Fair Stock Price.
2. Common Stock: Theses stocks have variable future dividends expected by the common shareholders. Use
Zero & Constant Growth Models to simplify future Dividend forecasts in estimated Theoretical Stock Price (or PV) equation. There dividend depend upon the income earned by the company and also upon the management decision regarding the dividend declaration.
Question No: 41 ( Marks: 5 )
Explain why financial planning is important to today’s chief executives?
It is important to plan finances in order to reap long term benefits through the assets in hand. The investments that one makes are structured properly and managed by professionals through financial planning. Every decision regarding our finances can be monitored if a proper plan is devised in advance. The following points explain why financial planning is important.
Cash Flow: Financial planning helps in increasing cash flow as well as monitoring the spending pattern. The cash flow is increased by undertaking measures such as tax planning, prudent spending and careful budgeting.
Capital: A strong capital base can be built with the help of efficient financial planning. Thus, one can think about investments and thereby improve his financial position.
Income: It is possible to manage income effectively through planning. Managing income helps in segregating it into tax payments, other monthly expenditures and savings.
Family Security: Financial planning is necessary from the point of view of family security. The various policies available in the market serve the purpose of financially securing the family.
Investment: A proper financial plan that considers the income and expenditure of a person, helps in choosing the right investment policy. It enables the person to reach the set goals.
Standard of Living: The savings created by through planning, come to the rescue in difficult times. Death of the bread winner in a family, affects the standard of living to a great extent. A proper financial plan acts as a guard in such situations and enables the family to survive hard times.
Financial Understanding: The financial planning process helps gain an understanding about the current financial position. Adjustments in an investment plan or evaluating a retirement scheme becomes easy for an individual with financial understanding.
Assets: A nice 'cushion' in the form of assets is what many of us desire for. But many assets come with liabilities attached. Thus, it becomes important to determine the true value of an asset. The knowledge of settling or canceling the liabilities, comes with the understanding of our finances. The overall process helps us build assets that don't become a burden in the future.
Savings: It is good to have investments with high liquidity. These investments, owing to their liquidity, can be utilized in times of emergency and for educational purposes.
The argument made by people from low income groups is that they don't need to plan their finances due to the less money they possess. However, no matter how much one earns, better planning of income always helps in the long run.
Question No: 42 ( Marks: 5 )
How risk and expected return is compared in two distributions?
The future is uncertain. Investors do not know with certainty whether the economy will be growing rapidly or be in recession. As such, they do not know what rate of return their investments will yield. Therefore, they base their decisions on their expectations concerning the future.
Question No: 41 ( Marks: 5 )
Suppose Ali Inc. issues tenyear bonds (par Rs. 1,000) with an annual coupon of 8.6%. Similar tenyear bonds are paying 8.0% interest. What is the value of one Ali's new bonds that is, what should be its price?
Bond Price = PV(all inflows) + PV(face value)
So in this case
Bond Price = PV(of all coupon payments) +PV(1000)
As bond will pay same amount for the next 10 year assume it annuity so we use annuity formula if some done get this formula he/she can try manually PV for every year for ten years.
8.6% of one thousand = 1000*.086 = 86
Which he gets every year as coupon payment
PV = Amt * PVIF = [1  (1+i)^n ]/i
i = 8%
Price = 86* [( 1 – (1.08)^10) ]/.08 + (1000/1.08)^10
Price = 577.0670003 + 463.1934881 = 1040.260488
= 1040.26
Question No: 42 ( Marks: 5 )
Draw a three year time line which illustrates the following situation:
i. An outflow of Rs. 10,000 occurs at time 0
ii. Inflows of Rs. 5,000 occur at the end of year 1, 2 and 3.
iii. The interest rate during the three year is 10%.
Question No: 16 ( Marks: 3 )
Assume that one year from now; you will deposit Rs. 1,000 into a saving account that pays 8% interest. If the bank compounds interest semiannually, how much will you have in your account four years from now?
FV = PV(1+i/m)^mn
FV = 1000 (1.04)^6 ( m*n = 2*3 as we are depositing after one year so total years will be 3)
FV = 1265
Question No: 17 ( Marks: 3 )
How much should you pay for the preferred stock of the PST Corporation, if it has $ 50 par value, pays $20 a share in annual dividends, and your required rate of return is 15%.
=20/.15 = 133.33
Question No: 19 ( Marks: 3 )
What do you mean by yield to maturity (YTM) of a bond? Explain briefly.
The most useful measure of the return on holding a bond is called the yield to maturity (YTM).
This is the yield bondholders receive if they hold the bond to its maturity when the final principal payment is made. It can be calculated from the present value formula.
The value of i that solves this equation is the yield to maturity
If the price of the bond is $100, then the yield to maturity equals the coupon rate.
Since the price rises as the yield falls, when the price is above $100, the yield to maturity must be below the coupon rate.
Question No: 20 ( Marks: 3 )
Explain briefly the Constant Growth Dividends Model of common stocks valuation.
In this, we need only to forecast the next year dividend and assume constant dividends Growth at Inflationary Growth Rate “g” which equals 5  10% pa (depending on country). DIVt+1 = DIVt x (1 + g) t. t = time in years i.e. If g = 10% Dividends Cash Flow Stream grows according to the Discrete Compound Growth Formula
DIVt+1 = DIVt x (1 + g) t.
t = time in years.
So if you have estimated the present Dividend (DIVo) or the next year’s Dividend (DIV1) then you can estimate all future dividends using this formula. In this, the trick is how to pick the right growth rate. Generally, we pick the rate of growth of inflation. As common stock holders we assume that the dividends are continue to grow at constant rate which is equal to rate of growth of inflation.
Question No: 41 ( Marks: 10 )
You are a financial analyst for the Hittle Company. The director of capital budgeting has asked you to analyze two proposed capital investments Project X and Project Y. Each project has a cost of Rs. 10,000 and the cost of capital for both projects is 12%. The projects’ expected cash flows are as follows:
Year 
Expected net cash flows 

Project X 
Project Y

3,500 
ANSWER:
Cost of project = Rs. 10,000
Payback period is the time required by the project to recover its costs.
Year 1 the project will recover Rs. 6,500
Year 2 the project will recover Rs 3000
Year 3 project will recover the remaining Rs. 500 in 1^{st} month of 3^{rd} yr. So payback period for Project X is 2 yrs and 1 month.
PROJECT Y: Cost of project= Rs 10,000
Year 1 project will recover Rs 3,500
Year 2 project will recover Rs 3,500
Year 3 project will recover remaining Rs 3000 in approximately 11 months of 3^{rd} yr.
So payback period of project Y is 2 yrs and 11 months.
2. Net Present Value:
Project X: Initial investment, I_{0} = Rs 10,000
Cash flow in yr 1, CF_{1} = Rs 6500
Cash flow in yr 2, CF_{2} = Rs 3000
Cash flow in yr 3, CF_{3} = Rs 3000
Cash flow in yr 4, CF_{4} = Rs 1000
Discount rate, I = 12 %
No. of yrs, n = 4
NPV =  I_{0} + CF_{1}/(1+i)^{n} + CF_{2}/(1+i)^{n} + CF_{3}/(1+i) ^{n} + CF_{4}/(1+i) ^{n}
^{ }
^{ } = 10,000 + 6500/(1.12) + 3000/(1.12)^{2}+ 3000/(1.12)^{3}+ 1000/(1.12)^{4}
^{ }
= Rs 966
Project Y: Initial investment, I_{0} = Rs 10,000
Cash flow in yr 1, CF_{1} = Rs 3500
Cash flow in yr 2, CF_{2} = Rs 3500
Cash flow in yr 3, CF_{3} = Rs 3500
Cash flow in yr 4, CF_{4} = Rs 3500
Discount rate, I = 12 %
No. of yrs, n = 4
NPV =  I_{0} + CF_{1}/(1+i)^{n} + CF_{2}/(1+i)^{n} + CF_{3}/(1+i) ^{n} + CF_{4}/(1+i) ^{n}
^{ } = 10,000 + 3500/(1.12) + 3500/(1.12)^{2}+ 3500/(1.12)^{3}+ 3500/(1.12)^{4}
= Rs 631
NPV =  10000 + 6500/(1+i) + 3000(1+i)^{2}+ 3000(1+i) ^{3}+ 1000/(1+i) ^{4}
^{ }
Project X: PI= Sum(CF_{t}/(1+i)^{t})/I_{o}
= 10,966/10000 = 1.096
Project Y : PI= Sum(CF_{t}/(1+i)^{t})/I_{o}
= 10631/10000 = 1.0631
Result: Since NPV and PI of project X are higher than that of project Y so Project X will be accepted..
Question No: 41 ( Marks: 10 )
ICO Company must decide between two mutually exclusive projects. The following information describes the cash flows of each project.
Year Project "A" Project "B"
0 Rs. (20,000) Rs. 24,000
1 10,000 10,000
2 8,000 10,000
3 6,000 10,000
A) We have 2 project A , B
Project A, Io=  Rs20000, Yr 1 = +Rs10000, Yr2= Rs8000, Yr3= Rs6000
Project B, Io= Rs24000, Yr1= +Rs10000, Yr2=Rs10000, yr3=Rs10000
In simple NPV=
Project A= 20000+10000+8000+6000/(1.15)^3
Rs= 2630.19
Project B= 24000+10000+10000+10000/(1.15)^3
Rs= 3945.29
The firm will decide to take the 2^{nd} project B. becz its NPV is greater tha project A.
B)
Project A= 20000+10000+8000+6000/(1.10)^3
Rs= 3005.25
Project B= 24000+10000+10000+10000/(1.10)^3
Rs= 4507.88
Again on 10%, project B is better than project A.
What are the types of bond? (Any five) 5 Marks.
Types of Bonds:
It is defined as a type of bond bearing a yield that may rise and fall within a specified range according to fluctuations in the market. The bond has been used in the housing bond market
A convertible bond is a bond which can be converted into the company's common stock. You can exercise the convertible bond and exchange the bond into a predetermined amount of shares in the company. The conversion ratio can vary from bond to bond. You can find the terms of the convertible, such as the exact number of shares or the method of determining how many shares the bond is converted into, in the indenture. For example a conversion ratio of 40:1 means that for every bond (with Rs.1,000 par value) you hold you can exchange for 40 shares of stock. Occasionally, the indenture might have a provision that states the conversion ratio will change through the years, but this is rare. Convertibles typically offer a lower yield than a regular bond because there is the option to convert the shares into stock and collect the capital gain. But, should the company go bankrupt, convertibles are ranked the same as regular bonds so you have a better chance of getting some of your money back
Define the Diversifiable Risk and Market Risk and Causes of Risk. 5 Marks
In case of portfolio risk we can further made distinction between Diversifiable Risk and Market risk Diversifiable Risk: random risk specific to one company, can be virtually eliminated. Market Risk: It is defined as uncertainty caused by broad movement in market or economy.
Diversifiable Risk: random risk specific to one company, can be virtually eliminated.
Market Risk: It is defined as uncertainty caused by broad movement in market or economy.
Causes of Risk:
These can be CompanySpecific or General. It may be because of Cash Losses from operations or poor financial management of the company. This is one possibility but the real question is that why these losses occurred. One of the reasons for the losses might be the company’s Debt, Inflation, Economy, Politics, War or Fate. Final analysis of risk is that it is a game of fate or chance

Why company prefer debt on equity to raise funds 3 marks
There are numerous ways to acquire funds, i.e., finances can be raised in the form of debt or equity. The proportion of debt and equity constitutes the capital structure of the firm. Financial experts attempt to find a combination of debt and equity that could increase the overall value of the company, i.e., they try to find the optimal capital structure. The following concepts would be used to understand how an optimal capital structure could be attained.
o Cost of Capital
o Leverage
o Dividend Policy
o Debt Instruments
Two approaches for life span of different life span of two different projects. Discuss any one. (5 marks)
Practical view:
Companies and individuals running different types of businesses have to make the choice of the asset according to the life span of the project. For instance, a tailor shop owner would have to decide whether to invest in a sewing machine that has a useful life of ten years or to invest in another machine with a useful life of three years. These decisions are important since they involve major cash outflows of the business. There are advantages & disadvantages associated with different life span.
Different Lives & Budget Constraint:
Companies and individuals running different types of businesses have to make the choice of the asset according to the life span of the project. Advantages of asset with a long life:
The advantage of a longer asset life is that the cash flows from the project become more predictable, since there are lesser cash outflows occurring during the life of the project.
Common life approach
In order to make the two investment opportunities we equate the life of the two projects. We would repeat the cash flow pattern of each project over a horizon that matches the least common multiple of the lives of the two projects. For instance, if there are two projects, and the life of first project is one year and that of the second is two years, the least common multiple would be two and the cash flow pattern of the project would be repeated for the next year, in order to make the two projects comparable. Similarly, if first project has a life of two years and second project has a life of three years, the least common multiple would be six. In that case, the cash flows of the first project would be repeated thrice and that of the second project would be repeated twice. Having equated the lives of the project the net present value of both the projects can be calculated and compared.
1) In Efficient Markets where investors have almost equal information, Fair Value will basically match Market Price. But, temporarily they can differ. Then what happens?
Usually, you think that whether the price of the thing purchased by you have that much price or not. Similar question will be asked in share trading
If Market Price < Fair Value: then Stock is under valued by the Market. It is a bargain and investors will rush to buy it. Therefore, Share’s Demand will rise and Market Price will rise to match the Fair Value.
Dynamic Equilibrium
If Market Price > Fair Value then Stock is Over Valued Share Price Valuation Perpetual Investment in Common Stock: Perpetual Investment in Common Stock
Explain the impact of interest rate on long term and short term bonds?
Interest Rate Risk for Long Term Bonds (i.e. 10 year bonds) is more than the Interest Rate Risk for Short Term Bonds (i.e. 1 year bonds) provided the coupon rate for the bonds is similar. When investor buy a long term bond he is locked in investment for long term period there are more chances of fluctuation in interest rate and the inflation rate.
So, the impact of interest rate changes on Long Term bonds is greater. Long Term Bond Prices fluctuate more because their Coupon Rates are fixed (or locked) for a long time even though Market Interest Rates are fluctuating daily; therefore the price of Long Bonds has to constantly keep adjusting.
Price of the long term bond fluctuates more as compared to the short term bond. Because, you have a long term bond with fix coupon rate but the market interest rate is fluctuating in between the years
Why does diversification reduce risk?
It states that don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Diversification can reduce risk. By spreading your money across many different Investments, Markets, Industries, Countries you can avoid the weakness of each. Make sure that they are Uncorrelated so that they don’t suffer from the same bad news. Due to certain change in the interest rates some of the investments in your portfolio may go up and the others go downward.
Diversification is a technique that reduces risk by investing among various financial instruments, industries and other categories. It aims to increase return by investing in different areas. Make sure that they are uncorrelated so that they don’t suffer from the same bad news.
Diversification states “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”
What are the effects of changes in macro interest rates on the portfolios of the bonds?
Macro Interest Rates have 2 Major Impacts on the Portfolio (collection of bond investments) of the Bondholder:
(1) Interest Rate Risk: In this, the value of Bond Portfolio Drops if interest rates Rise) and (2) Reinvestment Risk: In this, the overall Rate of Return (or Yield) on the Bond Portfolio Rises when interest rates rise the opportunity cost for the bond holder has changed. For example, somebody may have bought a short term bond with coupon rate of 15 % for one year. At maturity there is a risk that bondholder may not find another investment that can yield as much as 15%. When old bonds mature, bondholders are forced to invest in bonds at lower coupon rates). It is higher for short term bonds.
Different types of investments time horizons. 3 marks
There are two types of Investment Time Horizons
It is very long term horizon for long term investment. It is Perpetual so Forecasted Selling Price not significant and can be eliminated. If you are planning to buy and hold the share for 20 or 30 years then you can consider it as a long term assets. Similarly, an investment in the share for the period of one or two years
Value of a Share (which is a Direct Claim Security) can be estimated based on the Cash Flows that is generates. A Share generates Cash Dividends just like a Real Asset Project generates Cash Income.
How to calculate NPV for different lives of projects? Any one approach. 5
marks
NPV is also the most important criteria in capital budgeting. It is very difficult to calculate because different inputs used in Net present value equation are based upon a forecast, which may or may not be accurate e.g. future cash flows and sales. Similarly, when we talk about the life of the project, again we are estimating the duration of the project. We also have to choose subjectively the discount rates to be used, including cost of capital, opportunity cost & required rate of return in the calculation of Net present value. We will discuss how to choose the interest rate when we would talk about risk. In NPV the idea is to bring back each cash flow to the present and then to add or subtract them on present time. The project or investment, which is offering the highest NPV, gets the highest rank. Formula: NPV = Io + CFt / (1+i)t = Io + CF1/(1+i) + CF2/(1+i) 2 + CF` /(1+i) 3 +..
Suppose there are 2 stocks in your investment portfolio,

Value of investment 
Expected IRR 
A 
40 
30 
B 
60 
20 
Total 
100 

Calculate the expected portfolio return
Expected Portfolio return calculation:
rP = rA x A + rB x B
rP = 30% x (40 / 100) + 20% x (60 / 100)
rP = 0.12 + 0.12
rP = 0.24 or 24%
You want to start your business so you approach a bank. The bank offers you to lend you Rs. 100000 and you sign a bond paper. The bank asks you to issue a bond in their favor on the following requirement by bank.
Par value = Rs, 100000
Maturity = 2 years
Coupon rate = 12% Mark up paid at the end of each year
For the bank
What is the value of investing in a bond with that bank has opportunity cost of 10%.
Cash flow = coupon value = par value x coupon rate
= 100,000 x 12%
= 12000
So,
PV = 12000 / 1.1 + 12000 / (1.1)2 +100000 /(1.1)2
PV = 103471
Perpetual investment for preferred stock. (Marks 5)
Preferred share holders get a preference over common shareholders in recovering their money if the company goes bankrupt. Although preferred shareholders are owners they may not get voting rights. It is also known as hybrid equity. As it is mix of bonds and share. Preferred shareholders receive a fixed regular dividend.
Perpetual investmentmeans you are considering buying this stock and keeping it forever.
PV = DIV1/rPE
Where r PE = Minimum Required Rate of Return on Preferred Stock Equity for the individual investor
PV = Present Market Value (or Estimated Present Price) which depends on
DIV 1 = Forecasted Future Dividend in the next period

Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of Firm is Rs.1000 and Corporate Tax Rate, Tc is 30%
If the Firm is 100% Equity (or UnLevered) and rE = 30% then what is the WACCU of Unlevered Firm?
1) Net income = EBIT  I  Tax
= 1000  0  30% (0.3)
= 700
2) Equity (UnL) = NI/Re
= 700/30% (0.3)
= 2334
3) WACC(UnL) = Equity + Debt
= 2334 + 0 So
= 2334 Here is note that wacc is equal to equity
= 30% Jitna equity k rate hoga otahi WACC ho of Unlevered firm.....
If the Firm takes Rs.1000 Debt at 10% Interest or Markup then what is the WACCL of Levered Firm? (There is no change in return in equity)
1)Net income = EBIT  I  Tax
= 1000  .1(1000)  30% (900)
2) Equity (UnL) = NI/Re
= 630/30% (0.3)
= 2100
3)WACC (L) = Equity + Debt
= 2100 + 1000
= 3100
Formula:...
WACC = Rd*(1  tc)Xd + Re*Xe
= .1*(1  0.3)*(1000/3100) + 0.3*(2100/3100)
= 0.225806
