Question

A firm that is in the 35% tax bracket forecasts that it can retain $4 million of new earnings plans to raise new capital in the following proportions:

60% from 30-year bonds with a flotation cost of 4% of face value. Their current bonds are selling at a price of 91 (91% of face value), have 4 years remaining, have an annual coupon of 7%, and their investment bank thinks that new bonds will have a 40 basis point (0.40%) higher yield-to-maturity than their current 4-year bonds due to their longer term. Any new bonds will be sold at par. |

10% from preferred stock with a flotation cost of 5% of face value. The firm currently has an outstanding issue of $30 face value fixed-rate preferred stock with an annual dividend of $2 per share, and the stock is currently selling at $27 per share. Any newly issued preferred stock will continue with the $30 par-value, and will continue with the $2 dividend. |

30% from equity. Their common dividend payout ratio is 60%, they paid a dividend of $1.59 per share yesterday, the dividend is expected to grow to $4.22 in 20 years, and is expected to continue this growth rate into the foreseeable future. The common stock has a current market price of $19, and their investment banker suggests a flotation cost of 7% of market value on new common equity. |

**Part 1:** Calculate the after-tax cost of the new
bond financing. ___________

**Part 2:** Calculate the after-tax cost of the new
preferred stock financing. ______

Answer #1

**Part 1: Calculate the after-tax cost of the new bond
financing.**

YTM of the existing bonds = RATE (Nper, PMT, PV, FV) = RATE (4,
7% x 100, -91% x 100, 100) = 9.83%

Hence, YTM of the new bonds = 9.83% + 0.40% = 10.23%

Since new bonds will be issued at par, hence coupon = 10.23%

Flotation cost = 4% of face value = 4% x 100 = 100

Current price of the new bonds = Par value - flotation cost = 100 -
4 = 96

Hence, YTM = RATE (Nper, PMT, PV, FV) = RATE (30, 10.23% x 100,
-96, 100) = 10.68%

**Hence, after tax cost of new bond financing = YTM x (1 -
tax rate) = 10.68% x (1 - 35%) = 6.94%**

**Part 2: Calculate the after-tax cost of the new
preferred stock financing.**

Price net of flotation cost = 27 - 5% x 30 = $ 25.50

**After tax cost of new preferred stock = Annual dividend /
Price net of flotation = 2 / 25.50 = 7.84%**

Calculate the weighted average cost of capital
Given:
The firm has enough cash on hand to provide the
necessary equity financing (no new common stock).
Common Stock/Equity
1,000,000 common shares outstanding
Current stock price is $11.25 per share
Dividends expected at $1.00 per share
Dividends will grow at 5% per year after that
Flotation costs for new share would be $0.10 per share
Preferred Stock/Equity
150,000 preferred share outstanding
Current preferred stock price is $9.50 per share
Dividend is $0.95...

interior rate of 12%. A new issue would have a flotation cost of 6%
of the

debt on a permanent basis. New bonds would be privately placed with
no flotation cost.
• The current price of the firm’s 10%, $100 par value, quarterly
dividend, perpetual preferred stock is $110.12. The company would
incur flotation costs of...
