Answer:

\$800,000

Explanation:

we need to first calculate the value of Hornqvist with leverage:

value of the levered company = equity value + (debt’s face value x tax rate) = \$18,700,000 + (\$6,000,000 x 35%) = \$20,800,000

now we calculate the market value of Hornqvist:

market value of the company = debt’s face value + (total outstanding shares x market price per share) = \$6,000,000 + (350,000 x \$40) =  \$20,000,000
