rate of 34%.

What is Epson's (pre-tax) cost of debt?

What is Epson's cost of equity?

What is Epson's capital structure weight for equity?

What is Epson's WACC?

Answer #1

**What is Epson's (pre-tax) cost of debt?**

Yield to maturity = 6%

Hence, Pre-tax cost of debt = 6%

.

**What is Epson's cost of equity?**

As per CAPM equation:

Cost of equity = Risk free rate + Beta x Market risk premium

Cost of equity = 3.3% + 0.6*6%

Cost of equity = 6.90%

.

**What is Epson's capital structure weight for
equity?**

Weight of equity = 1/(debt equity ratio + 1) = **1/1.6 =
62.50%**

Therefore, Weight of debt = 1-Weight of equity = 0.6/1.6 = 37.50%

What is Epson's WACC?

.

WACC = Cost of equity x Weight of equity + Pre-tax cost of debt x Weight of debt x (1-tax rate)

WACC = 6.90% x 1/1.6 + 6% x 0.6/1.6 x (1-34%)

WACC **= 5.80%**

(Calculated WACC based on post tax debt cost)
