Principles of Corporate Finance by Brealey Myers and Allen

As part of my continuous commitment to develop in-depth knowledge I started going through “Principles of Corporate Finance” by Brealey Myers and Allen 11th edition (ISBN-13 978-0-0771-5156-0).
This will take a while as the book is over 800 pages long and has plenty of problems sets, at the end of every chapter, which I am committed to solve. The interesting questions, worth discussion or an additional attention will be posted here.
To check myself I also bought  Solutions Manual for Principles of Corporate Finance (Eleventh edition) prepared by Peter Crabb (ISBN 978-0-07-750247-8).
All solutions described here are by no means complete or correct. So any use will be at your own risk, although I would appreciate alternative solutions or discussion on the subject.
