 Steinberg Corporation and Dietrich Corporation are identical firms except that Dietrich is more levered. Both companies will remain in business for one more year. The companies’ economists agree that the probability of the continuation of the current expansion is 85 percent for the next year, and the probability of a recession is 15 percent. If the expansion continues, each firm will generate earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of \$2.41 million. If a recession occurs, each firm will generate earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of \$915,000. Steinberg’s debt obligation requires the firm to pay \$805,000 at the end of the year. Dietrich’s debt obligation requires the firm to pay \$1.18 million at the end of the year. Neither firm pays taxes. Assume a discount rate of 13 percent.
