FINC2012 Final Exam Sample Questions (Semester 2, 2015) Page 2 of 4 
Question 1 (10 Marks) DEBT, INVESTMENTS and EQUITY 
 
a) (5 marks) Calculate the price and duration of a 3-year 8% bond, paying semi-annual 
coupons, with a current market yield of 10% p.a. Will this bond be more or less sensitive to 
interest rate movements than a 3-year zero coupon bond? The face value of both bonds is 
$100. 
 
 
b) (5 marks) Always Expanding Ltd. has announced a rights issue and the price of the 
existing shares has fallen about three percent and they are now trading at $12 per share. The 
rights issue will be made at a price of $10 per share and shareholders will be entitled to buy 
one new share for each share they own prior to the stock going ex-rights. Briefly explain the 
likely reason for the fall in price when the rights issue was announced. Also briefly explain 
what will happen to the share price on the day the stock goes ex-rights and calculate how big 
the price movement is expected to be.

Question 2 (5 Marks) COST OF CAPITAL, IMPUTATION and FORWARDS 
 
 
 
a)(2 marks) Briefly explain how the value of debt tax shields is affected by the imputation tax 
system. 
 
 
b)(3 marks) You have the following information about Loosely Levered Ltd. The debt to 
value (D/V) ratio is 50%, the cost of debt is 9%, and the equity beta is 1.2. The risk free rate 
of interest is 7% and the market risk premium is 6%. Compute the beta of the debt, the beta of 
the assets and the required return on the assets. Assume there are no taxes.

Question 3 DEBT, TAXES, DIVIDENDS AND FUTURES 
a)(5 marks) Outback Gold Ltd. pays dividends about every 6 months. The current dividend of 
$1.00 has just been announced. The dividend is fully franked at the corporate tax rate of 30%. 
The marginal investor has an income tax rate of 40% and a capital gains tax rate of 20%. 
Calculate the grossed up value of the dividend, the amount of income tax the investor has to 
pay and the expected price drop attributable to the dividend payment. Does this price drop 
happen when the dividend is announced, on the record date, the ex-dividend date, or the 
payment date? 
b)(2 marks)Compute the present value of the tax shield according to MM under a classical 
tax system for a company that raises $1 million through the issue of perpetual debt with an 
interest rate of 10%. The corporate tax rate is 30%. Now, assume the debt is callable at face 
value and the company plans to exercise the call at the end of year 2, what is the present value 
of the tax shield.

Extra Question 
A natural gas company is considering the purchase of a gas reserve in Russia for a price of $100 
million. The total amount of gas reserved is almost unlimited, but due to technological constraint 
the amount of natural gas can be extracted each year is 5 million MMBtu. The current spot price 
is $2.92/MMBtu, and it could rise by 20% or fall by 15% in one year’s time, after which the 
price will become stable. If the company decides to extract the natural gas, an equipment cost of 
$10 will be incurred. A client has approached the company and made an offer to buy all of its 
natural gas at a fixed price starting from next year. Once the extraction begins, the company can 
sell the gas at either the year-end market price or the price offered by the client, the first cash in- 
flow is generated at the end of the year, and subsequent cash flows are generated at the end of 
each year forever. The variable cost can be deemed as zero, the risk free interest rate is 5% p.a. 
and the company cost of capital is 15%. 
1) Calculate the NPV of this project if the extraction starts immediately after purchasing the 
reserve, and there is no offer made from the client. (Assuming the probability for a rise in 
natural gas price is equal to that for a fall). (3 marks) 
2) Identify the real option in this situation and its specifications (maturity, strike price, 
underlying asset, etc.) If you are the client and you want to encourage the company to 
purchase this reserve, what is the minimum offer price you should make? Use the 
binomial tree method and round your numbers to four decimal points in each step. The 
final answer should be rounded to two decimal places (7 marks)

Extra Question 
A natural gas company is considering the purchase of a gas reserve in Russia for a price of $100 
million. The total amount of gas reserved is almost unlimited, but due to technological constraint 
the amount of natural gas can be extracted each year is 5 million MMBtu. The current spot price 
is $2.92/MMBtu, and it could rise by 20% or fall by 15% in one year’s time, after which the 
price will become stable. If the company decides to extract the natural gas, an equipment cost of

sell the gas at either the year-end market price or the price offered by the client, the first cash in- 
flow is generated at the end of the year, and subsequent cash flows are generated at the end of 
each year forever. The variable cost can be deemed as zero, the risk free interest rate is 5% p.a. 
and the company cost of capital is 15%. 
1) Calculate the NPV of this project if the extraction starts immediately after purchasing the 
reserve, and there is no offer made from the client. (Assuming the probability for a rise in 
natural gas price is equal to that for a fall). (3 marks) 
2) Identify the real option in this situation and its specifications (maturity, strike price,

purchase this reserve, what is the minimum offer price you should make? Use the 
binomial tree method and round your numbers to four decimal points in each step. The 
final answer should be rounded to two decimal places (7 marks) 
Answers: 
1) 
NPV = Exp(C1)/(r-g) – C0 
Where Exp(C1) = ((2.92* 1.2) *0.5 + (2.92 * 0.85)*0.5) * 5m = $14.965m 
r = cost of capital = 0.15 
g = 0 
c0 = 100 + 10 = 110m 
NPV = 14.965/0.15 – 110 = -$10.2333m

It is a put option on the natural gas, maturing in one year, and the exercise price is the offer price. 
The minimum option value should be 0 - NPV = $10.2333 
Fist, if the offer price is greater than u*s0, it is simple to show that the NPV > 0. Therefore it is 
not the lowest offer price. This suggests that the offer price is below Su, therefore option value if 
price goes up is 0. 
 
3.504 Payoff = max(X-3.504, 0)*5m/0.15 * 0.5714 
Option Value 0 
(to achieve minimum offer price, first assume if price goes 
up, the option value is 0, the company will sell at market 
price rather than take the option and sell at offered price) 
2.92 
10.23333 
2.482 Payoff = max(X-2.482, 0)*5m/0.15 * 0.4286 
Option Value 25.07167 
Choose the offered price, how much extra can the 
company make 
 
Price – market 
price 
0.75215 
Increase in profit per unit as a result of selling at the 
offered price (this is not the profit per unit, but an increase 
in the profit because you can sell at offered price instead 
of the market price) 
 
Offered Price = 
increase in gross 
profit + market 
price 
3.23415 Offered price = extra profit per unit + 2.482 
 
Double check if offer price is smaller than 3.504, 
otherwise the option value if price increases will not be 0 
 
 
The minimum offer price should be $3.23415 
Also note, once the company purchases the gas reserve, it will immediately start extraction (the 
cost of equipment is justified by the DCFs regardless of a rise or a fall in the price, therefore the 
sooner the equipment is deployed, the sooner the company can get cash inflows). Therefore, the 
decision of whether the extraction should be delayed is irrelevant (because the reasonable 
decision is to start extraction right away) and should not be considered as part of the real option.
