Raymond Supply, a nationa

Raymond Supply, a national hardware chain, is considering purchasing a smaller chain, Strauss & Glazer Parts (SGP). Raymond’s analysts project that the merger will result in the following incremental free cash flows, tax shields, and horizon values:Assume that all cash flows occur at the end of the year. SGP is currently financed with 30% debt at a rate of 10%. The acquisition would be made immediately, and if it is undertaken, SGP would retain its current $15 million of debt and issue enough new debt to continue at the 30% target level. The interest rate would remain the same. SGP’s pre-merger beta is 2.0, and its post-merger tax rate would be 34%. The risk-free rate is 8% and the market risk premium is 4%. What is the value of SGP to Raymond?
