1. Calculate the free cash flow for your company over the period 2010-2015

2. Calculate the value of a project proposal that will last over the period 2010 through 2015

a. Calculation you will need to include a calculation of beta, which is your firm’s index of systematic risk.

b. The weighted average cost of capital.

c. Explain how Bloomberg calculates the WACC.
3. Calculate the present value of the free cash flows over the period 2010-2015.

4. Discuss the advantages and limitations of each of the above approaches to calculating the discount rate
Introduction
The Primary goal of the project is for students to gain practice applying finance concepts to practice. Additional goals are for students to (1) become familiar with sources of economic and financial information and in particular the Bloomberg Database, and (2) practice their writing skills. The project is an individual assignment and late submissions will not be accepted.

Bloomberg Database. This is located in the Wells Fargo Financial Markets Laboratory. It is located in Wells Fargo Financial Markets Laboratory. To get there from the door that is facing the open air theater, once you enter the door you go left (there will be a sign telling you to go left also). Then, go to the right to get passed all the computers then go all the way to the end and make another right (it is the last junction at which you could make a right). Finally, it’s the second door on the left.

ANSWER ALL OF THE QUESTIONS FOR A PARTICULAR COMPANY. THE CHOICE OF COMPANY IS UP TO YOU. BUT, PLEASE EMAIL ME TO LET ME KNOW OF YOUR SELECTION. COMPANY SELECTION IS FIRST COME FIRST SERVE. IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO KEEP THREE OR FOUR COMPANIES IN MIND BECAUSE YOU ARE TO USE THE BLOOMBERG DATABASE IN YOUR RESPONSE TO EACH QUESTION. YOU CANNOT PICK MICROSOFT BECAUSE THIS IS OUR EXAMPLE.

1. Calculate the free cash flow for your company over the period 2010-2015. Please include the formulas detailing the calculation of the free cash flow and the numbers that resulted from implementing this calculation. To carry out this calculation, please find the financial analysis screen corresponding to the company. From the financial analysis screen, you can go to the cash flow statement which provides you with the “operating cash flow” from this you subtract “capital expenditures” to get free cash flow.

2. Now we assume that we are in the year 2009, please calculate the value of a project proposal that will last over the period 2010 through 2015. This project will generate cash flow equal to the free cash flow the firm is expected to generate over the above period. This means that we will assess the project’s value today (i.e. 2009) based upon the cash flow it is expected to be able to generate over the next five years (2010-2015) based upon your response to question 1. So, we will need to assess the risk of the project. As we have assumed in class, the risk of the project is at the level of the risk of the firm. We will use three different methods to calculate the discount rate which will capture the risk of the firm.

b. The weighted average cost of capital (WACC). Please include all details and assumptions of your calculation and/or spreadsheet used to calculate it here.
c. The WACC that is computed by Bloomberg for your firm. Please explain how Bloomberg calculates the WACC.

3. Please use each of the three discount rates computed above to calculate the present value of the free cash flows over the period 2010-2015.

4. Please discuss the advantages and limitations of each of the above approaches to calculating the discount rate. Which one do you think is the best? Please justify your answer.
