If the acquisition is made, it will occur on January 7,2073. AII cash flows shown in
the income statements are assumed to occur at the end of the year. Pixable
currently has a capital structure of 40% debt, but SingTel would increase that to
50"/, if the acquisition were made. Pixable, if independent, would pay taxes at 20'h;
but its income would be taxed at 35'/" if it were consolidated. Pixable's current
market-determined beta is 1.40, and its investment bankers think that its beta
would rise to 1.50 if the debt ratio were increased to 50%. The cost of goods sold is
expected to be 65u/"of sales, but it could vary somewhat. Depreciation-generated
funds would be used to replace worn-out equipment, so they would not be
available to SingTel's shareholders. The risk-free rate is 8"/o, and the market risk
premium is 4'k.
a. What is the appropriate discount rate for valuing the acquisition?

What is the continuing value?

c. What is the value of Pixable to SingTel?
