The Owner of Big Boy Flea Market (BBFM), Lewis Redding, passed away on December 30, 2014. His 100% ownership interest in BBFM became part of his estate, on which his heirs must pay estate taxes. The IRS has hired a valuation expert, who has submitted a report stating that the business was worth ­approximately $ 20 million at the time of Redding’s death. Redding’s heirs believe the IRS valuation is too high and have hired you to perform a separate valuation analysis in hopes of supporting their position.
a. Estimate the firm FCFs for 2015 to 2019, where the firm’s tax rate is 25%, capital expenditures are assumed to equal depreciation expense, and there are no changes in net working capital over the period.

1. BBFM’s cost of equity is estimated to be 20% and the cost of debt is 10%.
2. BBFM’s management targets its long- term debt ratio at 10% of enterprise value.
3. After 2019, the long- term growth rate in the firm’s free cash flow will be 5% per year.
