Answer #1

1) Cost of debt = YTM = 10%

2) No. of semi-annual interest payments left = 26 x 2 = 52

3) Semi-annual Interest payment = 1,000 x 8.9141% / 2 = $44.57

4) Discount rate per period = YTM / 2 = 5%

5) Market Value of equity = 600,000 x 60 = 36,000,000

6) Cost of equity, re = D1 / P + g = 6.30 / 60 + 5% = 15.50%

7) Bond Price can be calculated using PV function

N = 26 x 2 = 52, PMT = 44.57, FV = 1000, I/Y = 5% => Compute PV = $900.00

Market Value of debt = 900 x 20,000 = 18,000,000

8) E/V = 36 / (18 + 36) = 66.67%

9) WACC = E/V x re + D/V x YTM x (1 - tax)

= 66.67% x 15.50% + 33.33% x 10% x (1 - 20%)

= 13.00%
