Spending on health care now constitutes a significant fraction of total expenditure. Understanding the efficacy of this spending is therefore relatively important. When it comes to contagious diseases, there are generally two strategies that can be adopted. The first involves prevention, which includes vaccinations to lower or eliminate the risk of contracting a disease. The second involves treatment of those unfortunate enough to get sick, treatment typically requires some form of a drug. Since pharmaceutical companies can produce both vaccines and drugs, we would like to understand the incentives they have to develop each type of medicine. To explore this question, consider a population of 100 consumers, 90 of whom have a low disease risk, say 10%. The remaining ten have a high risk – to make things simple, assume they are certain to contract the disease. In addition, suppose the disease generates personal harm equal to the loss of $100 for each individual when they are infected. Suppose also that pharmaceuticals of either form (vaccines or drugs) are costless to produce (once R & D has occurred) and are perfectly effective. Question 1. Start by considering the demand for the vaccine. For the group of high risk people, what is the maximum price they would be prepared to pay? For the low risk group, calculate the maximum price they would pay as the personal value of the harm times the risk of contracting the disease. Use these two pieces of information, along with the number of people in each group to construct the demand function for the vaccine and plot it on a diagram. [2 points] 1 Question 2. What price would a profit maximising monopolist charge for a vaccine? What are the monopoly profits on the vaccine? What is the efficient outcome (i.e. SMB = SMC)? What is the welfare under the monopoly and at the efficient allocation?[5 points] Question 3.Now consider the demand for the drug (assume that the vaccine is not available). Construct the demand function for the drug and plot it on a diagram. What price would a profit maximising monopolist charge for the drug? What are the monopoly profits from the drug? What is the efficient outcome? What is the welfare under the monopoly and at the efficient allocation? [5 points] Question 4. If the R&D costs of the vaccine and drug are the same, what will the pharmaceutical company do? Explain your answer in terms of the variation in the willingness to pay and the size of the R& D costs. What would a social planner do? [5 points] Question 5. What are the R&D cost for the vaccine and the R&D cost for the vaccine drug that would make a pharmaceutical company indifferent between developing the vaccine and the drug? Is the social planner indifferent in this case? Explain any difference.

Goodway Plc Is A Holding Company Owning Shares In Various Subsidiary Companies Its D 2728396

Goodway plc is a holding company owning shares in various subsidiary companies. Its directors are currently considering several projects which will increase the range of the business activities undertaken by Goodway plc and its subsidiaries. The directors would like to use discounted cash flow techniques in their evaluation of these projects but as yet no weighted average cost of capital (WACC) has been calculated.

Lord Harris Tweed, the Managing Director, has called a meeting of the directors to discuss the calculation and use of the weighted average cost of capital as the discount rate for future capital investment decisions.

Shilpa Gohal, the Finance Manager, has been asked to draw up some relevant figures for the calculation of the company’s weighted average cost of capital, as shown below.

Goodway plc has an authorised share capital of 10 million 25p ordinary shares, of which 8 million have been issued. The current ex div market price per ordinary share is £1.10, a dividend of 11.4p per share having been paid recently. The company’s project analyst has calculated that 12% is the most appropriate after-tax cost of equity capital.

Extracts from the latest balance sheets for the group are given below:

Goodway plc


Issued share capital


Share premium




Shareholders’ funds


Minority interests


3% irredeemable loan stock


9% redeemable loan stock


6% unsecured loan stock


Bank loans


Total non-current liabilities


All debt interest is payable annually and all the current year’s payments will be made shortly. The current cum interest market prices for £100 nominal value stock are £31.60 and £103.26 for the 3% and 9% loan stock respectively. Both the 9% loan stock and the 6% unsecured loan stock are redeemable at par in ten years’ time. The 6% stock is not traded on the open market, but the analyst estimates that its effective current ex-interest market price for £100 nominal stock is £75.42. The bank loans bear a nominal interest at 13% and are repayable in six years. The effective corporation tax rate of Goodway plc is 35%.

Lord Harris Tweed remarks that once the WACC had been calculated, it should be used to calculate all the proposed capital investment projects that were about to be undertaken. They had always used one discount rate in the past, and the economic climate was favourable and unlikely to change in the future. Esther Banda, the Production Director, also agrees stating that one discount rate would give uniformity to their decision-making process. However, Shilpa Gohal is not so sure, as, “not all of the proposed investments have the same risk profile, and discount rates based on the cost of their individual financing, might be more appropriate,” (i.e. those projects financed by a specific source of debt, for instance, should be discounted at the cost of the particular source).

Mark Darcy, Shilpa’s assistant, points out that some of the proposed projects are outside the organisation’s usual activities and that, therefore, any WACC based on figures related to their current activities may be inappropriate. He says, “When I was at university I remember calculating a risk-based discount rate based on the Capital Asset Pricing Model.”

Once he has attracted attention Mark also decides to demonstrate how intelligent he is and says, “I also remember that whatever WACC we use it would be better to have a lower one as this will make future projects more attractive. I know that the cost of debt is supposed to be cheaper than the cost of equity. Therefore, I think we should restructure and issue more debt and attempt to lower our WACC.”


Task 1

Calculate the effective Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) from the information given in the scenario, as initially required by the directors.

(15 marks)

Task 2

Provide a consideration of Shilpa Gohal’s opinion with regard to the calculation of a suitable cost of capital.

(10 marks)

Task 3

Mark Darcy has introduced the possibility of using the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) in order to calculate a suitable cost of capital for projects.

a) Provide a full rationale as to the use of CAPM for the calculation of a risk-adjusted specific discount rate.

(15 marks)

b) One particular capital project available to Goodway would involve an expansion into an unfamiliar industry, at the time when the above financial data was gathered.

At this time it was estimated that the appropriate risk free rate of return in the economy was 5% and that the return on the market is assumed to be 14%.

Should the investment take place Goodway does not anticipate that its gearing will change from that indicated in the scenario. Corporate debt is assumed to have a beta of 0.20 (i.e. it is not risk free) and the company’s equity beta is estimated at 0.78.

At the time, a typical surrogate company in the same industry, Noggin plc, has the following Balance Sheet.


Non-current assets 3.00

Net current assets 2.01


Financed by:

Long Term debt 2.60

Ordinary shares (£1 par value/share) 0.60

Reserves 1.81 5.01

The share price for Noggin plc at the Balance Sheet date is £3.51 and the equity beta of the company is 1.51. Noggin has the same effective rate of taxation as Goodway plc.


You should estimate a risk-adjusted Weighted Average Cost of Capital (using CAPM) which Goodway can use in the proposed diversification into the unfamiliar industry.

(10 marks)

Task 4

Provide a critical analysis that considers Mark Darcy’s comments concerning the possibility of issuing more debt in order to lower the Weighted Average Cost of Capital.

You should provide a well-researched response indicating whether or not you agree with his suggestion.

(30 marks)

Task 5

Instead of undertaking ‘organic’ growth as indicated in Task 3 (b) Goodwaycould expand into the unfamiliar industry by acquisition.

You are required to provide a critical analysis of the relative benefits of the two types of growth (i.e. ‘organic’ and acquisition) from Goodway’s point of view.

(20 marks)

(Total 100 marks)

Further Information

You are required to present well-structured answers of no more than 3,000 words in total(excluding calculations).
