B. Shi Import-Export's balance sheet shows $300 million in debt,
$50 million in preferred stock, and $250 million in total common
equity. Shi's tax rate is 25%, r_{d} = 7%, r_{ps} =
6.1%, and r_{s} = 12%. If Shi has a target capital
structure of 30% debt, 5% preferred stock, and 65% common stock,
what is its WACC? Round your answer to two decimal places.

Answer #1

**A]**

cost of common equity = (D1 / P0) + g

where D1 = expected dividend next year

P0 = current stock price

g = growth rate

cost of common equity = ($1 / $39) + 0.07

cost of common equity = 0.0956, or 9.56%

**B]**

WACC should be based on target capital structure weights, and not the book value weights. This is because the firm is expected to have the target capital structure in the near future.

WACC = (weight of debt * after-tax cost of debt) + (weight of preferred stock * cost of preferred stock) + (weight of common stock * cost of common stock)

WACC = (30% * (7% * (1 - 25%))) + (5% * 6.1%) + (65% * 12%)

WACC = 0.0968, or 9.68%

WACC
Shi Import-Export's balance sheet shows $300 million in debt,
$50 million in preferred stock, and $250 million in total common
equity. Shi's tax rate is 30%, rd = 7%, rps =
6.5%, and rs = 13%. If Shi has a target capital
structure of 30% debt, 5% preferred stock, and 65% common stock,
what is its WACC? Round your answer to two decimal places.
