Merger Valuation with Change in Capital Structure

Hastings Corporation is interested in acquiring Vandell Corporation. Vandell has 1 million shares outstanding and a target capital structure consisting of 30% debt; its beta is 1.25 (given its target capital structure). Vandell's debt interest rate is 7.9%. Assume that the risk-free rate of interest is 6% and the market risk premium is 5%. Both Vandell and Hastings face a 30% tax rate.

Hastings estimates that if it acquires Vandell, interest payments will be \$1,600,000 per year for 3 years. Suppose Hastings will increase Vandell's level of debt at the end of Year 3 to \$34.5 million so that the target capital structure will be 45% debt. Assume that with this higher level of debt the interest rate would be 8.5%, and assume that interest payments in Year 4 are based on the new debt level from the end of Year 3 and new interest rate. Again, free cash flows and tax shields are projected to grow at 6% after Year 4.
