1.     Penn Corp. is analyzing the possible acquisition of Teller Company. Both firms have no debt. Penn believes the acquisition will increase its total after tax annual cash flow by $4 million indefinitely. The current market value of Teller is $43 million, and that of Penn is $88 million. The appropriate discount rate for the incremental cash flows is 10 percent. Penn is trying to decide whether it should offer 40 percent of its stock or $69 million in cash to Teller’s shareholders.

2.     Plant, Inc., is considering making an offer to purchase Palmer Corp. Plant’s vice president of finance has collected the following information:
