The Presley Corporation is about to go public. It currently has after-tax earnings of $7,200,000, and 2,100,000 shares are owned by the present stockholders (the Presley family). The new public issue will represent 800,000 new shares. The new shares will be priced to the public at $25 per share, with a 5 percent spread on the offering price. There will also be $260,000 in out-of-pocket costs to the corporation.
c. Compute the earnings per share immediately after the stock issue.
The earnings per share after stock issue is $2.48.
After-tax earnings = $7,200,000
Shares outstanding = 2,100,000
Shares issued in new public issue = 800,000 shares
Selling price for new public issue = $25 per share
Spread = 5%
Out-of-pocket costs = $260,000
The earnings per share is $2.48.
Question: The Bowman Corporation has a $18 million bond obligation outstanding, which it is considering refunding. Though the bonds were initially issued at 10 percent, the interest rates on similar issues have declined to 8.5 percent. The bonds were originally issued for 20 years and have 10 years remaining. The new issue would be for 10 years. There is a 9 percent call premium on the old issue. The underwriting cost on the new $18,000,000 issue is $530,000, and the underwriting cost on the old issue was $380,000. The company is in a 35 percent tax bracket, and it will use an 8 percent discount rate (rounded after-tax cost of debt) to analyze the refunding decision.
