The first issue has 10 years to maturity, a par value of $2,000 per bond, and sells for 103 percent of par.

The total face value of the first issue is $280,000, while the total face value of the second issue is $380,000. What is the capital structure weight of debt?

Answer #1

**The weight of debt is computed as shown
below:**

**= Total value of debt / (Total value of debt + Total
value of equity)**

**Value of First issue of bond is computed as
follows:**

= 103% x $ 280,000

**= $ 288,400**

**Value of second issue of bond is computed as
follows:**

= 108% x $ 380,000

**= $ 410,400**

**Total market value of debt will be as
follows:**

= $ 288,400 + $ 410,400

**= $ 698,800**

**Total value of common stock is computed as
follows:**

= 18,100 x $ 72

**= $ 1,303,200**

**So, the weight of debt is computed as
follows:**

= $ 698,800 / ($ 698,800 + $ 1,303,200)

**= 34.91% Approximately**
