Advanced chemical industries is awaiting the verdict from a court case over whether it is liable
for the clean-up of wastes on a disused factory site. if it is liable, this will result in a reduction of
its free cash flow by $11 million per year for ten years. if it is not liable, there will be no effect.
on the close of trading the day before the announcement of the verdict, advanced chemicals
was trading at $20 per share. most investors calculate that there is a 100% chance that advanced
chemicals will have a verdict returned against them. one investor, jo, has performed extensive
research into the outcome of the trial and estimates that there is no chance advanced chemicals
will have a verdict returned against them. given that advanced chemicals has 40 million shares
outstanding and an equity cost of capital of 6% with no debt, joʹs estimate of the value of a share
of advanced chemicals would be how much more than the market price?
