1. McMagon Company must raise $100 million on January 1, 2012 to finance its expansion into a new market.  The CFO has come up with three alternatives for raising the money:

1) Issue $100 million of 8% nonconvertible debt due in 20 years.

2) Issue $100 million of 6% nonconvertible preferred stock (face value $25 per share, 4 million shares).

3) Issue $100 million of common stock (1 million shares).

The company’s internal forecasts indicate the following 2012 year-end amounts before any option is chosen:  ($ in millions)               

Total debt           $425

Total shareholders’ equity           250

Net income for the year               10

The Company has no preferred stock outstanding but currently has 10 million shares of common stock outstanding.  EPS has been declining for the past several years.  Earnings in 2011 were $1 per share, which was down from $1.10 during 2010, and management wants to avoid another decline during 2012.  One of the company’s existing loan agreements requires a debt-to-equity ratio to be less than 2. McMagon pays taxes at a 40% rate.



Assess the impact of each financing alternative on 2012 EPS and the year-end debt to equity ratio, and give an in-depth discussion to support one of the financing alternative.
