Question

The ABC firm is currently unlevered and is valued at $800,000. Assuming the current of cost of equity is 10%. If the firm is issuing $250,000 in new debt with an 7.6% interest rate. it would repurchase $250,000 of stock with the proceeds of the debt issue. There are currently 28,000 shares outstanding and its effective marginal tax bracket is 25%. If cost of equity increases to 12.82%, what will ABC’s new WACC be after debt issue?

Answer #1

Value of levered firm = Value of unlevered firm + debt*tax rate

=800000+250000*0.25=862500

D/E = debt/(Value of levered firm-debt)

=250000/(862500-250000)=0.4081

D/A = D/(E+D) |

D/A = 0.4081/(1+0.4081) |

=0.2898 |

Weight of equity = 1-D/A |

Weight of equity = 1-0.2898 |

W(E)=0.7102 |

Weight of debt = D/A |

Weight of debt = 0.2898 |

W(D)=0.2898 |

After tax cost of debt = cost of debt*(1-tax rate) |

After tax cost of debt = 7.6*(1-0.25) |

= 5.7 |

WACC=after tax cost of debt*W(D)+cost of equity*W(E) |

WACC=5.7*0.2898+12.82*0.7102 |

WACC =10.76% |

XYZ is a no-growth firm and its current unlevered value is
VU=$800,000, and its marginal corporate tax rate is 35%. Also, you
model the Firm's PV of financial distress as a function of its debt
ratio (D/VU) according to the relation:PV of financial
distress=800,000 x (D/V)^2. The optimal percentage of perpetual
debt (D) to the levered firm value (i.e. D/VL, the effective
debt/value-ratio), given debt proceeds are used to buy back stock,
is closest to: a) 0.25 b) 0.6 c)...
