The assets of Dallas & Associates consist entirely of current assets and net plant and equipment, and the firm has no excess cash. The firm has total assets of $2.9 million and net plant and equipment equals $2.4 million. It has notes payable of $140,000, long-term debt of $751,000, and total common equity of $1.55 million. The firm does have accounts payable and accruals on its balance sheet. The firm only finances with debt and common equity, so it has no preferred stock on its balance sheet.

Write out your answers completely. For example, 25 million should be entered as 25,000,000. Negative values, if any, should be indicated by a minus sign. Round your answers to the nearest dollar, if necessary.

Answer #1

**Answer to Question 1:**

**Equity:**

Expected Dividend = Current Dividend * (1 + Growth Rate)

Expected Dividend = $4.00 * 1.06

Expected Dividend = $4.24

Cost of Equity = Expected Dividend / Current Price + Growth
Rate

Cost of Equity = $4.24 / $32.25 + 0.06

Cost of Equity = 0.1315 + 0.06

Cost of Equity = 0.1915 or 19.15%

**Debt:**

Cost of Debt = 8%

After Tax Cost of Debt = 8% * (1 – 0.35)

After Tax Cost of Debt = 5.20%

Let Weight of Debt be “x”

Weight of Equity will be “1 –x”

WACC = (Weight of Debt * After Tax Cost of Debt) + (Weight of
Equity * Cost of Equity)

13.55% = (x * 5.2%) + ((1 – x) * 19.15%)

13.55% = 5.2x% + 19.15% - 19.15x%

13.95x% = 5.6%

x = 0.4014

Therefore, the percentage of debt in Capital structure is 40.14%
