Sample Questions.

M&A - Accretive Deals

If a company trades at a forward PE of X, and acquires a company trading at a forward PE 0.5X. Assuming the deal is 100% stock-for-stock, and the offer includes a 10% premium, will the deal be accretive?

Answer - Accretive Deals

Yes, it will be accretive. By definition, 100% stock deals are always accretive if the acquirer’s PE is higher than target’s.

The 10% premium on the purchase price here is meant to confuse the analyst being interviewed. In fact, even if we increase the target’s PE by 10% (target PE * 1.10), the target’s PE is still below the acquirer’s.

Corp Finance - Asset FMV

A company acquired equipment for $7 million in 2018 and has since depreciated the asset by $4 million. Moreover, the equipment currently has a fair market value of $10 million.

Assuming GAAP, what is the current value of that equipment on the company’s balance sheet?

Answer - Asset FMV

The current value on the balance sheet is $3 million ($7 million acquisition price minus the $4 million in total accumulated depreciation to this day.

In this question, the $10 million fair market value adds some complexity. Although the asset has a certain market value, the company needs to carry the asset on its balance sheet at historical cost (cost – accumulated depreciation).

NOTE: The above answer mostly applies for US interviews. However, internationally and under IFRS standards, it is permitted to reevaluate assets to their fair market value.
