...and the small to medium size firm? The traditional financial manager was generally involved in the regular finance activities, e.g., banking operations, record keeping, management of the cash flow on a regular basis, and informing the funds requirements to the top management, etc. But, the role of financial manager has been enhanced in the today's environment; he/she takes an active role in financing, investment, distribution of profits, and liquidity decisions. In addition, he/she is also involved in the custody and safeguarding of financial and physical assets, efficient allocation of funds, etc. The role of financial manager in case of diversified firm is more complicated in comparison with a small and medium size firm. A diversified firm has several products and divisions and varied financial needs. The conflicting interests of divisional managers make the work of financial manager quite difficult in a diversified firm. ‘…the function of financial management is to review and control decisions to commit or recommit funds to new or ongoing uses.

... ($ 3,200) Semiannual Interest Savings Due To Refunding: Semiannual interest on old bond: $1,320,000 Semiannual interest on new bond: (960,000) Net interest savings $ 360,000 Semiannual cash flow: $ 356,800 The cash flows are based on contractual obligations, and hence have about the same amount of risk as the firm's debt. Further, the cash flows are already net of taxes. Thus, the appropriate interest rate is GST's after-tax cost of debt. (The source of the cash to fund the net investment outlay also influences the discount rate, but most firms use debt to finance this outlay, and, in this case, the discount rate should be the after-tax cost of debt.) Finally, since we are valuing future flows, the appropriate debt cost is today's cost, or the cost of the new issue, and not the cost of debt floated 5 years ago. Thus, the appropriate discount rate is 0.6(8%) = 4.8% annually, or 2.4 percent per semiannual period. At this discount rate, the present value of the semiannual net cash flows is $9,109,425: PV = $356,800(PVIFA2.4%,40) = $9,109,425. Alternatively, using a financial calculator, input N = 40, I = 2.4, PMT = -356800, FV = 0, PV = ? PV = $9,109,413. h.

Now Williamson is planning to go public with an issue of common stock, and it faces the problem of setting an appropriate price for the stock. The Company and its investment banks believe that the proper procedure is to select several similar firms with publicly traded common stock and to make relevant comparisons. Several plate manufacturers are reasonably similar to Williamson with respect to product mix, asset composition, and debt/equity proportions. Of these companies, Lance Plates and Franz Syndicates are most similar. When analyzing the following data, assume that 2005 and 2010 were reasonably “normal” years for all three companies-that is, these years were neither especially good nor especially bad in terms of sales, earnings, and dividends.
