    Value of equity = 9,000 x $26.80 = $241,200

    Value of debt issued = $39.932

    Value of equity after debt repayment = $241,200 - $39,932

    = $201,268

    No of equity outstanding after debt repayment = $201,268

    $26.80

    = 7,510 shares

    Explanation:

    In this regard, there is need to determine the value of equity after debt repayment, which is value of equity minus value of debt repaid. Then, we will divide the value of equity after debt repayment by the value of equity per share. This gives the number of shares outstanding after debt repayment.
