Q.7)What Is The Minimum Ratio Based On LG Model ?<br /><ul><li>Larsen & Gonedes Model:
The LG Model Asserts The Exchange Ratio From Premium Value (MP) Rather Than Using Only Assets Or Earning.
Each Firm (Acquirer & Acquired) Assessment Of The Post Merger Evaluation Of Combined Firm, As Reflected In The PE Ratio Multiple.
Each Firm Sustaining At least Its Price Per Share Or Equivalent During The Period Of Merger. </li></li></ul><li>Contd…<br /><ul><li> Determination Of Exchange Ratios:</li></li></ul><li>Contd…<br /><ul><li> Calculation Of Exchange Ratio (ER) Of HindalCo:
ER Hindalco= PHindalcoXSindal </li></ul>[(PE Comb Firm)(E indal + E hindalco) – (P indal X S hindalco)]<br /><ul><li> ER Hindalco=522.60 X 7.11</li></ul> [(1 X (117.1 + 686) - 522.6 X 7.45 ]<br /><ul><li> ER Hindalco = - 1.20 Shares</li></li></ul><li>Contd…<br /><ul><li>Exchange Ratio Of Hindalco Using LG Model:</li></ul> (For Various Level Of PE Ratio.)<br /><ul><li> ER Calculated Using LG Model.
Mean (average) = 2.148shares</li></li></ul><li>Contd…<br /><ul><li> Calculation Of Exchange Ratio (ER) Of “IndalCo :
ER Indalco = [E indal + E hindalco ) PE Comb Firm]-(S indal/S hindalco)</li></ul> ( P indal XS hindalco )<br /><ul><li> ER indalco = [(117.10 + 686) X 1 ] - ( 7.11 / 7.45 ) </li></ul> ( 117.05 X 7.45 )<br /><ul><li> ER indalco = -0.03 Shares</li></li></ul><li>Contd…<br /><ul><li>Exchange Ratio Of Indalco Using LG Model:</li></ul> (For Various Level Of PE Ratio.)<br /><ul><li> ER Calculated Using LG Model.
Mean (Average) = 6.416Shares</li></li></ul><li>Contd…<br /><ul><li>Interpretation :
In The Process Of Mergers & Acquisition Negotiation Hindalco would Like To Keep “ER As Low As Possible” To Reduce The Dilution Of Control In Firm.
While Indal Would Want To Keep “ER As High Possible” To Get More Equity Ratio In A Firm.
Thus ER Would Be Trade-off Between Maximum & Minimum Exchange Ratio By Using Graphical Analysis Or Simply Calculating Mean Of Each Firm.
