5.27%

Answer #1

Filer | Value | Weight | Cost |

Equity | 820.0 | 85.40% | 12.98% |

Bond 1 | 82.5 | 8.59% | 5.25% |

Bond 2 | 57.8 | 6.01% | 5.29% |

Total | 960.2 | WACC | 11.56% |

Value of equity = 10 x 82 = 820, Value of Bond 1 = 85 x 97% = 82.5, Value of Bond 2 = 55 x 105% = 57.8

=> Total Value = 960.2

Weight = Value / Total

Cost of equity = D0 x (1 + g) / P + g = 5.4 x (1 + 6%) / 82 + 6% = 12.98%

Cost of bond can be calculated using I/Y function on a calculator

N = 20, PMT = 5, PV = -97, FV = 100 => Compute I/Y = 5.25% for Bond 1

N = 9, PMT = 6, PV = -105, FV = 100 => Compute I/Y = 5.29% for Bond 2

WACC = 85.40% x 12.98% + (8.59% x 5.25% + 6.10% x 5.29%) x (1 - 38%) = 11.56%
