Since this is an exam question, I will try to guide you without giving the answer.

The valuation of any company is stock price x number of shares.

From the question above you will find data for both these variables. Now you have arrived at the company valuation.

Next, the question says that the acquirer paid only 50% of the value in cash. So cash money paid to the shareholders will be 50% of the company valuation that you have already determined.

Let me know if you get it.
