Select one:

a. $83.33 million

b. $1.40 million

c. $10.50 million

d. $16.66 million

Answer #1

WACC = Weight of Common Equity * Cost of Common Equity + Weight of Preferred Equity * Cost of Preferred Equity + Weight of debt * Pretax cost of debt * (1 - Tax rate)

WACC = (60% * 10%) + (5% * 4%) + (35% * 6% * (1 - 34%))

WACC = 6% + 0.2% + 1.386% = **7.586%**

Hence, Wacc = 7.59% (Option A)

Q2.

Value of Enterprise = Value of Debt + Value of Equity

Value of Debt = Annual Interest/Required rate of Return = $3mil/9% = $33.33 mil

Value of Equity = Annual Payment/Required rate of Return = $7.5mil/15% = $50 mil

**Hence, total
value = $83.33 mil**(Answer a)
