Answer #1

**Answer 1.) Calculation of Pre tax cost of Debt
:**

Pre tax cost of Debt can be calculated using Rate Function of Excel :

Using Financial Calculator

=RATE(nper,pmt,pv,fv)

where nper is Number of years to maturity i.e 30 * 2 = 60 (Multiplied by 2 As coupons are paid semiannually)

pmt is Interest payment i.e 1000 * 7% = 70 / 2 = 35 (Divided by 2 As coupons are paid semiannually)

pv is Current Market Price

= 940 (1000 * 94%)

Note : pv should be taken as negative.

fv is face value i.e 1000

=RATE(60,35,-940,1000)

**therefore ,Pretax cost
of debt is 3.75290%(Semiannual)**

**Pretax cost of Debt is
3.75290%* 2 = 7.51%(Annual)**

**Answer : 2 )
Calculation of WACC**

**WACC = (Cost of Equity
* Weight of Equity) + (Cost of after tax debt * Weight of
Debt)**

Weight of Equity = 1/(1 + 0.65)

Weight of Debt = 0.65 / (1 + 0.65)

**WACC = [13% * (1 /
1.65)] +[8% * (1 - 0.35) * (0.65 /
1.65)]**

**= 7.878788% +
2.04848%**

**=
9.93%**
