Mini Case

Randy’s, a family-owned restaurant chain operating in Alabama, has grown to the point that expansion throughout the entire
Southeast is feasible. The proposed expansion would require the firm to raise about $18.3 million in new capital. Because Randy’s
currently has a debt ratio of 50% and because family members already have all their personal wealth invested in the company, the
family would like to sell common stock to the public to raise the $18.3 million. However, the family wants to retain voting control. You
have been asked to brief family members on the issues involved by answering the following questions.
a. What agencies regulate securities markets?
b. How are start-up firms usually financed?
c. Differentiate between a private placement and a public offering.
d. Why would a company consider going public? What are some advantages and disadvantages?
e. What are the steps of an initial public offering?
f. What criteria are important in choosing an investment bank?
g. Would companies going public use a negotiated deal or a competitive bid?
h. Would the sale be on an underwritten or best efforts basis?
i. The estimated pre-IPO value of equity in the company is about $63 million and there are 4 million shares of existing shares of
stock held by family members. The investment bank will charge a 7% spread, which is the difference between the price the new
investor pays and the proceeds to the company. To net $18.3 million, what is the value of stock that must be sold? What is the
total post-IPO value of equity? What percentage of this equity will the new investors require? How many shares will the new
investors require? What is the estimated offer price per share?
j. What is a roadshow? What is book-building?
k. Describe the typical first-day return of an IPO and the long-term returns to IPO investors.
l. What are the direct and indirect costs of an IPO?
m. What are equity carve-outs?
n. Describe some ways other than an IPO that companies can use to raise funds from the capital markets.
o. What are some other investment banking activities? How did these increase investment banks’ risk?
p. What is meant by “going private”? What are some advantages and disadvantages? What role do private equity funds play?
q. Under what conditions would a firm exercise a bond call provision?
r. Explain how firms manage the risk structure of their debt with project financing.
