11.  Acme Delivery Systems (ADS) is an integrated healthcare delivery system.  Currently ADS contracts with the community to provide MRI scans and they are looking at bringing the service in house.  They expect to provide 2000 scans next year with an annual increase of 10% per annum.  Currently they have a contract with an outside provider which will cost $700 per scan next year (Year 1) and the price will increase at 5% per annum  (MRIs in year 2 under contract cost 5% more than year 1 and so forth).

Alternatively ADS can  purchase an MRI at a total installed cost of $4,000,000.  The MRI has a useful life of 10 years and is depreciated on a straight-line basis.  You have been asked to do an analysis of whether ADS, a for profit company, should purchase the MRI or continue contracting out to the community.  Doing research into the project you have used the following information:

  1. The balance sheet – see attachment 
  2. The template for projected P&L of the MRI – see attachment 
  3. ADS just paid a dividend of $2.00 per share and it is expected to grow at 5% per annum.   
  4. The Risk Free Rate is 6%
  5. The Market Risk Premium is 6%
  6. ADS beta is 1.6
  7. The MRI’s Beta in relation to ADS overall portfolio of projects is .8 as it is less risky than the average risk of the portfolio of projects

  9. They issued senior debt 20 Year debt 5 Year ago at a coupon rate of 7%
  10. The current market required rate for debt of similar risk and time to maturity is 5%

  2. What is the current price of an ADS share of stock? 
  3. What is the current price of ADS bonds?
  4. What is the Weighted Average Cost of Capital for ADS?
  5. Should ADS buy the MRI or contract for it in the community?
  6. Which of the options is riskier
    1. Should this be taken into account when evaluating the two options
    2. Presuming your answer is yes (which is not necessarily the correct answer) how would you account for it in this case where you are comparing two cost streams?
  7. At what discount rate would ADS be financially indifferent between the two options?

  1. Dr Maya founded a radiology benefit management company that controls diagnostic imaging costs by influencing physicians to follow evidenced based prescribing guidelines. Dr Maya invested $2mm on 1/1/13 to start the company. By 1/1/14 the company was generating run-rate profits of $2mm per year, and Dr Maya was invested everything back into the business. During 2014, Dr Maya decides she should raise $10mm to expand her business. She explores debt and equity financing, and as part of that exploration process she compiles the following 4-yr projections:
  • Upside scenario:  Sell for $90mm. 
  • Base Case scenario: Sell for $60mm. 
  • Downside Scenario: Sell for $5mm. 

 

Assume the outside investment is made on 1/1/15, and the eventual sale of the company occurs on 1/1/19 (4 yrs after the outside investment). She receives the following term sheet proposals:

  • Proposal #1:  Equity investment from HLR Capital.  $10mm investment for 25% ownership.
  • Proposal #2: Term loan.  $10mm investment, 8% interest rate, 4 year term.(Assume the debt is a zero-coupon loan that pays back all interest and principal at maturity.  Assume interest is compounded annually.)
