Thanks John for these lectures on this question. It is such a long question with a lot of techniques. I did correctly for most parts until this expected value section that really threw me off….even tried to calculate standard deviation myself…. Hope that I dont have to see such crazy question in real exam but thank you for your videos. Also I know that I have been asking you a lot of questions about the market value of debt and the cost of debt, the videos on this question really helped me understand that the correct way to calculate cost of debt to company while the examiner assumed an incorrect cost of debt…. Again, thanks for your great help to self learners like us, it was really helpful.

For part of question (Lumi Co, a leisure travel company, has offered $50 million to buy the project from Fugae Co at the start of the second year. Fugae Co is considering whether having this choice would add to the value of the project.)
Why we did not use BSOP model?

Partly because it was not asked for – it asked for the value with and without the project – and also because there is not enough information (we would need the standard deviation etc..)

I will defenately fail the exam with such Q1 🙂

It is a hard question, but there are aunt reasonably easy marks within it (provided that your workings are clear enough for the examiner to be able to follow them).

Thanks a lot for the clinical dissection of this question. When I read the question, I got angry with the examiner. How many years did it take him to concoct this onerous question? And how on earth did he expect anybody to reason properly faced with this question under exam conditions?
A financial manager may be given a week or two to advise the board on a labyrinthine question of this nature. I sympathise with all the candidates who sat for this paper and hope the same fate does not befall me in September 2016.
This is the first revision question I looked at. But for the methodical way you dealt with it, I would have postponed sitting for this paper till December. Thank you very much.
It was a one for all revision question for most of what I have learnt so far. It also taught me to open up my mind to all perspectives of P4 while attempting any question.

Many many thanks for the videos that help me a lot to understand the technique.

Isn’t the offer from Lumi a kind of real option?
December 2, 2015 at 2:25 pm
It is indeed an option, and it is worth mentioning in the report (as does the examiner). However we can’t use BlackScholes to value it because we do not have the necessary information.

Your lectures are a treasure!

Due to sit the Dec 15 exam in a couple of weeks for the first time and just looked at this question and nearly fell over with panic!! Then I’ve listened to your lecture. The methodical way you have gone through everything has really helped and I can understand that this was a particularly tough question. Hopefully, you taught me not to panic and to just work through it as much as you can getting as many marks as possible.
Your help is invaluable. Thank you so much.
