In response to ABC's request, XYZ has proposed the following risk-sharing arrangement. First, set the current spot rate as the base rate. As long as spot rates stay within 5% (up or down) ABC will pay at the base rate. Any rate outside of the 5% range, XYZ will share equally with ABC the difference between the spot rate and the base rate. If the current spot rate is C$1.20/$, what are the upper and lower limits for trading to take place at C$1.20?

A) C$1.205/$ - C$1.195/$

B) C$1.15/$ - C$1.25/$

C) C$1.14/$ - C$1.26/$

D) none of the above

6) The weighted average cost of capital (WACC) is:

A) the required rate of return for all of a firm's capital investment projects.

B) the required rate of return for a firm's average risk projects.

C) not applicable for use by MNE.

C) multiplying the before-tax cost of debt by (1 - the corporate tax rate).

D) subtracting the corporate tax rate from the before-tax cost of debt.

Answer #1

5. **Option C:** C$1.14/$ - C$1.26/$

Computation of lower & upper limit is as below:

Spot rate | 1.2 |

Upper limit (105% of spot rate) | 1.2*105% =1.26 |

Lower limit (95% of spot rate) | 1.2*95%=1.14 |

6.**Option** **B:** the required rate
of return for all of a firm's capital investment projects.

WACC is used as a decision making tool for all of the capital investment projects of a firm to ensure that the cost of capital is being recovered from the projects to be undertaken.

7.**Option A:** to determine the price of equity
capital.

CAPM is a model that helps determine the value of equity.

8.**Option C:** multiplying the before-tax cost of
debt by (1 - the corporate tax rate).

Cost of debt= Before tax cost of debt * (1- corporate tax rate)
