Mercury Case Essay

325 words - 2 pages

1) Is Mercury an appropriate target for AGI? Why or why not? Explain.

In that case AGI can decrease its prices to some extent and relieve the pressure from suppliers and competitiors.

2. Review the projections formulated by Liedtke. Are they appropriate? How would you recommend modifying them? Justify.

3.Estimate the value of Mercury using a discounted cash flow approach and Liedtke’s base case projections. Be prepared to defend additional assumptions you make.
Rd=6%
T=40%
Wd=20%
We=80%

WACC= wdxrd(1-T) + wsrs
rs=rRF + (rM- rf)xb

Assumptions:
b= industry average= 1.5578
rM= industry average=9.7%
rRF= US Treasury(10-20 years maturity)=4.83%

rs=4.83 + (9.7 -4.83)x1.5578 = 12.42%

WACC= 0.20x6x0.6 +0.80x12.42= 10.66%

Acquisition can increase the market share of AGI. In addition, making line extension with athletic foot products can increase the brand awareness and can give positive effect to brand image. It may use the advantage of scaling, economies of scaling can give cost advantages.
