The Landers Corporation needs to raise $1.20 million of debt on a 5year issue. If it places the bonds privately, the interest rate will be 8 percent. Twenty thousand dollars in outofpocket costs will be incurred. For a public issue, the interest rate will be 8 percent, and the underwriting spread will be 5 percent. There will be $100,000 in outofpocket costs. Assume interest on the debt is paid semiannually, and the debt will be outstanding for the full 5year period, at which time it will be repaid. Use Appendix B and Appendix Dfor an approximate answer but calculate your final answer using the formula and financial calculator methods. 
a.  For each plan, compare the net amount of funds initially available—inflow—to the present value of future payments of interest and principal to determine net present value. Assume the stated discount rate is 12 percent annually. Use 6.00 percent semiannually throughout the analysis. (Disregard taxes.)(Assume the $1.20 million needed includes the underwriting costs. Input your present value of future payments answers as negative values. Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answers to 2 decimal places.)

The management of Mitchell Labs decided to go private in 2002 by buying all 2.50 million of its outstanding shares at $19.50 per share. By 2006, management had restructured the company by selling off the petroleum research division for $14.80 million, the fiber technology division for $8.65 million, and the synthetic products division for $22 million. Because these divisions had been only marginally profitable, Mitchell Labs is a stronger company after the restructuring. Mitchell is now able to concentrate exclusively on contract research and will generate earnings per share of $1.35 this year. Investment bankers have contacted the firm and indicated that if it reentered the public market, the 2.50 million shares it purchased to go private could now be reissued to the public at a P/E ratio of 14 times earnings per share. 
a.  What was the initial cost to Mitchell Labs to go private? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places. Enter your answer in millions, not dollars (e.g., $1,230,000 should be entered as “1.23”).)
