can you help me with the attached quiz and 5 questions ?
NiseFood Corporation is analyzing the possibility to acquire KradFood Corp. Kradfood earnings have been under pressure in recent years, thanks to the change in consumer behavior. Consumers are more willing to pay an extra price for healthier food, and at the same time are reducing the consumption of fast food. Nisefood Corp is exposed to the growing segment of the food industry, while Kradfood is focus on un-healthy food.
Nisefood expects to improve Kradfood distribution channel, using its existing distribution network, restructuring production facilities from un-healthy food to healthy food and to reduce operating costs in the process.
There is enough room to grow the acquired company (Kradfoods) sales by 12% per year during the next 4 years, and then reduce the growth rate to 6% per year until year 10. Growth at perpetuity is estimated to be 5%.
The EBITDA Margin will also improve by 2.75% of sales thanks to the synergies in the distribution channel and the manufacturing operating efficiencies.
The acquirer expects the NWK to be reduced by 0.07% of sales (per year) from 2017 level in years 2108 to 2020 and then to grow at 0.04% (per year) as percentage of sales from 2021 onwards (20121 included).
The depreciation expense will be stable as percentage of sales during the forecast period.
Capital Expenditure will be increased by 0.30% per year as a percentage of sales during the first three years (2018 to 2020), but will come back to the 2017 level as a percentage of sales from 2021 onwards.
The tax rate is expected to be stable at 30%
