Answer #1

- Target Capital Structure: Debt -45%

Equity- 55%

Before-tax cost of Debt (YTM) = 11%

Company's WACC = 10.88%

Calculating the Cost of Equity using the WACC formula:-

WACC= (Weight of Debt)(Cost of Debt)(1-Tax Rate) + (Weight of Equity)(Cost of Equity)

10.88% = (0.45)(11%)(1-0.40) + (0.55)(Cost of Equity)

10.88% = 2.97% + 0.55(Cost of Equity)

7.91% = 0.55(Cost of Equity)

Cost of Equity Capital = 7.91%/0.55

**Cost of Equity Capital = 14.38%**

**So, the company's cost of equity capital is
14.38%**
