each year for the foreseeable future. It has a tax rate of 40% and has a

 

capitalization rate of 8% equal to the industry required return for this type of

 

firm. It calculates that there is a 10% chance the firm will fall into bankruptcy

 

in any given year and that, if bankruptcy does occur, it will impose direct and

 

indirect costs totaling $48,000. Assume that, in the event of bankruptcy, the

 

firm will reorganize and continue operations indefinitely, with a constant 10%

 

probability of reentering bankruptcy. If necessary, use the industry required return for discounting bankruptcy costs. Assume that the firm considers

 

borrowing $500,000 debt at an interest rate 5% and use the proceeds to

 

repurchase an equal amount of outstanding stock. With this level of debt, the

 

likelihood of falling into bankruptcy in any given year increases to 15%, and

 

if bankruptcy occurs then it will impose direct and indirect costs totaling

 

$48,000. With all benefits and costs considered, what is the overall value of

 

the levered firm if the proposed $500,000 debt is used, assuming no

 

personal taxes on debt or equity income? (YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE YOUR
