I have some problem to solve the below questions. Please help me to deal with these questions:
1. XYZ have a share price of $5.2 at the end of the year, which is $0.6 higher than it was at the start of the year. During the year they have paid dividend of $0.45 per share. What is toatl shareholder return (TSR) over the year?
TSR= (share price at the end+ dividend)/ share price at the start of year. But dont find the correct answer.
2. X has dividend yield of 8%, dividend cover of 2.4. What is PE ratio?
3. X has demand of 7500 units/month. each unit cost $5, ordering cost are $100 per order, holding cost are 10% of of purchasing price per yr. there is lead time of 30 days between placing an order and receiving delivery. If order the economic order quantity, each time, at what level of inventory should a new order be placed?

please anyone with Dec, 2015 P7 mock examsDecember 2, 2015 at 10:21 am #286936
khambo: Why on earth have you posted this in the Paper F9 forum when you are asking about P7?
Also, you must not ask on this website for copyright material to be sent to you by email – it is illegal and unethical.December 2, 2015 at 10:33 am #286939
1. The share price at the start of the year was 5.20 – 0.60 = $4.60.
The dividend is $0.45 and the increase in share price is $0.60
Therefore the total shareholder return = (0.45 + 0.60) / 4.60 = 22.83%
2. Dividend yield = dividend / market value = 0.08
Therefore market value = dividend / 0.08 = 12.5 x dividend
Dividend cover = earnings / dividend = 2.4
Therefore earning = 2.4 x dividend
PE = MV / earnings = 12.5 x dividend / 2.4 x dividend = 5.21
3. They need to place an order when they have enough left in inventory to last the lead time (the time between placing the order and receiving the goods).
The lead time is 30 days.The average demand per day is 12 x 7,500 / 365 = 246.58 units
Therefore the reorder level is 30 x 246.58 = 7,397 units.December 2, 2015 at 12:18 pm #286962

Can you help me to answer these questions:
1. A project requires an investment of $24,000 at time 0, & generates an inflow of $5,000 per year for 8 years ( with the first inflow occurring in one year time). What is the internal rate of return?
2. the share price is $4/share. the company announce a 1 for 5 rights issue at $3.1/share. What % of the rights offered to shareholder dose the shareholder need to take up so as to have no net cash flow resulting from the issue?
3. A machine cost $72,000 and have maximum 3 yrs life. the running cost: Yr1: $7200, Yr2:$9600, Yr3:$12000. The estimated scrap value: after yr1-24000, afteryr2-16600, after yr3-9600. the cost of capital 15%. What is the equivalent annual cost if the company decides to replace the machine every 2 yrs?

Your first question:
The total shareholder return over a year = (dividend + increase in share price) / share price at the start of the year.
Since the return is 23.3%, then dividend + increase in share price = 23.3% x $3.60 = $0.84
The dividend during the year is $0.24, therefore the share price increase must be $0.84 – $0.24 = $0.60
Therefore the current share price = 3.60 + 0.60 = $4.20.December 3, 2015 at 8:05 am #287151
Your second question:
I have no idea which question you are referring to. The questions in the mock exam are selected at random from a bank of questions (as is explained on the page before you attempt the exam).
Please give me a clue which question you are referring to!December 3, 2015 at 8:10 am #287154
Because it is an annuity, 5,000 x 8 year annuity factor = 24000
Therefore the 8 year annuity factor = 24,000 / 5,000 = 4.800
If you look in the tables along the 8 year row then 13% is the closest (it gives 4.799)
You could, of course, do the normal calculation and make 2 guesses, but because it is an annuity the above is much quicker.December 3, 2015 at 8:16 am #287155
(I don’t think you are bothering to watch the free lectures because this is all explained in the lecture!!)
The TERP = ((5 x $4) + $3.10) / 6 = £3.85
If someone owned 1,000 shares before the rights issue, then they must have been worth 1,000 x $4 = $4,000.
For there to be no cash effect, they must still be worth $4,000 after the rights issue, which must been that they now own 4,000 / 3.85 = 1,038.96 shares. So they must have taken up 38.96 new shares.
There were entitled to buy 1/5 x 1,000 = 200 shares. Therefore they have actually taken up 38.96/200 = 19.48%December 3, 2015 at 8:24 am #287158
A two year cycle has the following flows:
2 7,000 (16,600 – 9,600)
The PV at 15% is (72,972)
The EAC = 72,972 / 1.626 = 44,878December 3, 2015 at 10:00 pm #287363just_bilalMember

In the mock exam there was a question asking the following
“RI CO Has in issue 6% redeemable bonds. quoted at 120% ex Int.
which of the statements is consistent with the above information”
i can not calculate the redemption yield, please advise how do we calculate redemption yield?
Thanking you in advance.
kind regards and wishing you the bestDecember 4, 2015 at 8:09 am #287422
You cannot be asked to calculate the redemption yield (and you do not need to in this question) but you are expected to know what it means.
The interest yield (which you can be expected to calculate) is 6/120 = 5%.
However, the interest yield only takes account of the interest. The redemption yield is the overall return – the interest together with any gain or loss on redemption (which is the amount received on redemption less the investment required now (the MV)),
Here, the current MV is 120. The redemption is at 100. Therefore there is a ‘loss’ on redemption and therefore the redemption yield will be lower than the interest yield.
Only one of the choices has interest yield at 5% and redemption yield as lower.December 4, 2015 at 8:39 am #287440

1) Fling Co has annual credit sales of $4,500,000 and on average customers take 60 days to pay, assuming a 360 days year. As a result, Fling has a trade receivables balance of $750,000. Fling relies on an overdraft to finance this at an annual interest rate of 8%. Fling is considering offering an early settlement discount to its customers of 0.5% for payment in 30 days. It expects that 25% of its customers (representing 35% of the annual credit sales figure) will pay in 30 days in order to obtain the discount. If Fling introduces the proposed discount, what will be the NET saving?
2) R plc has in issue $400,000 8% bonds, redeemable in 5 years time at a premium of 10% investors require a return of 12% p.a. The rate of corporation tax is 35%. What is the total market value of the debt in issue.
3) LJM co is considering investing in a new project which will cost $160,000. It has an expected life of 4 years and an expected scrap value of $20,000. The anticipated net operating cash flows each year are :
Year 1 : $40,000
Year 2: $60,000
Year 3: $80,000
Year 4: $20,000
Cost of capital is 10%
What is the NPV and ARR of the investment?
As for question 3 I know is quite easy, but I can’t figure out where to deduct the scrap value to get the NPV..
Kindly help me on these question. Thanks!!December 4, 2015 at 3:12 pm #287565
Have you actually watched the free lectures? They are a complete course for F9 and cover everything needed for the exam (including these three questions). There is no point in attempting the mock exam unless you have either watched all the lectures or instead worked through every page of a Study Text!
Current receivables = 750,000
New receivables period = (35% x 30) + (65% x 60) = 49.5 days.
Therefore new receivables = 49.5/360 x $4.5M = 618,750
Therefore interest saving = (750,000 – 618,750) x 8% = $10,500
Cost of discount = 35% x 0.5% x $4,500,000 = $7,875
Therefore net saving = 10,500 – 7,875 = $2,625December 4, 2015 at 3:19 pm #287567
On $400,000, the expected receipts are:
1 – 5 Interest 32,000 p.a. (8% x 400,000)
5 Repayment 440,000 (400,000 + 10%)
The present value discounted at the investors required return of 12% = $364,840
(Tax is only relevant when calculating the cost of debt, it does not affect the investor and it is the investor who determines the market value.)December 4, 2015 at 3:25 pm #287570
We do not deduct the scrap value anywhere when calculating NPV’s! It is an cash inflow at the end of the project.
The cash flows are:
4 40,000 (20,000 + 20,000)
The NPV at 10% = $13,320
I work through an almost identical example in the very first of the free lectures on investment appraisal, where I am quickly revising Paper F2 before going into the more complicated things for F9.
