Answer #1

WACC is weighted Avg cost of sources in capital structure

Ke = Rf + Beta ( Market risk Premium )

= 3% + 1 ( 4% )

= 3% +4%

= 7%

Kd = YTM

Where bond is trading at par, YTM and coupon rates are same

thus YTM is 8%

After Tax cost of Debt = YTM ( 1 - Tax rate )

= 8% * ( 1 - 0.4 )

= 8% * 0.6

= 4.8%

WACC:
