C)Calculate the present value now (Year 2010) of OFCF during the period of declining growth (that is for years 2011 to 2014).

D) Calculate the present value now (Year 2010) of OFCF during the period of declining growth (that is for years 2015 to 2018).

A) REQUIRED RATE OF RETURN ON EQUITY

Calulated using CAPM model

Rate of return on equity= Risk free rate+beta*risk premium

=(0.05+1.1*0.04)*100

=9.4%

B) WEIGHTED AVERAGE COST OF CAPITAL

particulars rate of return (a) (b) weight product( a*b)

Equity 9.4% 0.55 5.17

Debt(after tax) 6.75% 0.45 3.04

(0.09-25%of 0.09)*100
