a. The investment bank underwrites the stock on a firm commitment basis, and agrees to pay $ 12.50 per share to Looney Landscaping Corp. for the 15 million shares of stock. The investment bank then sells those shares to the public for $ 13.25 per share. How much money does Looney Landscaping Corp. receive? What is the profit to the investment bank? If the investment bank can sell the shares for only $ 11.95, how much money does Looney Landscaping Corp. receive? What is the profit to the investment bank?
b. Suppose, instead, that the investment bank agrees to underwrite the 15 million shares on a best efforts basis.

What is the profit to the investment bank? If the investment bank can sell the shares for only $ 11.95, how much money does Looney Landscaping Corp. receive?
