VolWorld Communications Inc., a large telecommunications company, is evaluating the possible acquisition of Bulldog Cable Company (BCC), a regional cable company. VolWorld's analysts project the following post-merger data for BCC (in thousands of dollars, with a year end of December 31):


2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018
Net sales
$450.0 $518.0 $  555.0 $  600.0 $  643.0
Selling and administrative expense
45.0 53.0 60.0 68.0 73.0
Interest
40.0 45.0 47.0 52.0 54.0
Total net operating capital 800.0 850.0 930.0 1,005.0 1,075.0 1,150.0
Tax rate after merger: 35%

Cost of goods sold as a percent of sales: 50%

BCC's pre-merger beta: 1.00

Risk-free rate: 5%

Market risk premium: 5%

Terminal growth rate of free cash flows: 4%

If the acquisition is made, it will occur on January 1, 2014. All cash flows shown in the income statements are assumed to occur at the end of the year. BCC currently has a capital structure of 40% debt, which costs 7.50%, but over the next 4 years VolWorld would increase that to 50%, and the target capital structure would be reached by the start of 2018. BCC, if independent, would pay taxes at 30%, but its income would be taxed at 35% if it were consolidated. BCC's current market-determined beta is 1.00. The cost of goods sold is expected to be 50% of sales.
