Answer #1

Calculation of Weighted average cost of capital

cost of equity= next year's dividend/share price +dividend growth rate

= $1.45/$23.87+2.46℅

=8.53%

WACC= cost of equity*weight+cost of debt*weight

= 8.53%*0.68+5.80%*(1-.33)*.32

= 5.80+ 1.24

= 7.04%

Depreciation on PJX5 = 2200000-243320/10

= $195668 p. a.

Tax saved on depreciation= $195668*(1-.33)

=$ 64570 p. a.

Calculation of Net present value
