The company's expected market price per share After the repurchase would \$23.68

Explanation:

In order to calculate the company's expected market price per share After the repurchase we would have to calculate first the Price-to-earnings ratio (P/E ratio) as follows:

Price-to-earnings ratio (P/E ratio) = Market price per share / Earnings per share

Earnings per share = Earnings / number of shares outstanding = \$ 5,700,000 / \$790,000 = \$ 7.21

Therefore, Price - to-earnings ratio = \$ 21 / \$ 7.21 = 2.91

If 90,000 shares are repurchased, Therefore Earnings per share = \$ 5,700,000 / \$700,000 = \$ 8.14

Therefore, the company's expected market price per share After the repurchase=\$ 8.14 x 2.91 = \$23.68
