# Problem 1 A company issues 15-year, \$1,000 par-value bonds, with a coupon rate of 5%.

Problem 1

A company issues 15-year, \$1,000 par-value bonds, with a coupon rate of 5%. The bonds are sold for \$619.70. The tax rate is 30%. Compute the cost of debt before taxes and after taxes.

Problem 2

Suppose a company issues common stock to the public for \$25 a share. The expected dividend is \$2.50 per share and the growth in dividends is 8%. If the flotation cost is 10% of the issue proceeds, compute the cost of external equity, re.

Problem 3

Calculate the cost of preferred stock (rPS) with the given information:

Par Value = \$200

Current Price = \$208

Flotation Cost = \$16

Annual Dividend = 12% of Par

Problem 4

A company is investigating the effect on its cost of capital with respect to the tax rate. Suppose there is a capital structure of 20% debt, 10% preferred stock, and 70% common stock. The cost of financing with retained earnings isre = 12%, the cost of preferred stock financing isrPS = 7%, and the before-tax cost of debt is rd = 9%. Calculate the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) given a tax rate of 35%.

Problem 5

You have been hired as a consultant to help estimate the cost of capital. You have been provided with the following data: rRF = 4.10%; RPM = 5.25%; and b = 1.30. Based on the CAPM approach, what is the cost of common from retained earnings?

Problem 6

A company is trying to estimate its cost of capital. The following data is provided: D1 = \$1.45; P0 = \$22.50; and g = 6.50% (constant). Based on the DCF approach, what is the cost of common from retained earnings?
