 Market value weight Debt Preferred stock Equity
 b. If the company is evaluating a new investment project that has the same risk as the firm’s typical project, what rate should the firm use to discount the project’s cash flows? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Enter your answer as a percent rounded to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.)
 Discount rate %

Current value of bonds=117%*1000=1170

Total Debt=1170*170000=198900000

Preferred Stock=320000*86=27520000

Equity=8.8*10^6*36=316800000

Weights:

Debt=198900000/(198900000+27520000+316800000)=0.3661

Preferred Stock=27520000/(198900000+27520000+316800000)=0.0507

Equity=316800000/(198900000+27520000+316800000)=0.5832

cost of debt=RATE(10*2,7.6%*1000/2,-117%*1000,1000)*2=5.38%

cost of preferred stock=4%*100/86=4.65%

Cost of equity=risk free+beta*(market risk premium)=5%+1.4*7.6%=15.64%

Discount rate=0.3661*5.38%*(1-38%)+0.0507*4.65%+0.5832*15.64%=10.58%
