questions below.

In 2008 GameStop Corp did not have an issue of preferred stock.

Use the data from the 2009 GameStop Corp Annual Report to analyze how the
different methods available in capitalizing would affect the company.



Complete or answer the following questions.

1. If GameStop Corp chose to issue another round of corporate bonds, how
much interest rate should they offer?



2. Assume that GameStop Corp did issue corporate bonds at your determined
bond interest rate. Also assume they used bonds for 30% of their 2009
capitalization. By issuing 30% of their 2009 capitalization in bonds, what
difference would result in the earnings per share of common stock?

Illustrate using Excel.



3. Would you recommend changing a percentage of their unsecured borrowing
to issuing bonds?



4. Would you recommend adding an issue of preferred stock to their
financing? If you do, how many shares should they sell, and what should be
the selling price? Illustrate using Excel.
