1)
Coupon = 0.06 * 100 = 6
Before tax cost of debt = 7.7%
Keys to use in a financial calculator: FV 100, PMT 6, N 10, PV 88.43, CPT I/Y
2)
Levered beta = Unlevered beta [1 + D/E(1  tax)]
Levered beta = 2 [1 + 0.3/0.7(1  0.4)]
Levered beta = 2 * 1.25714
Levered beta = 2.5143
Cost of equity = Risk free rate + beta (market risk premium)
Cost of equity = 0.03 + 2.5143 (0.16  0.03)
Cost of equity = 0.03 + 0.32686
Cost of equity = 0.3569 or 35.69%
3)
WACC = 0.3*0.077*(1  0.4) + 0.7*0.3569
WACC = 0.01386 + 0.24983
WACC = 0.2637 or 26.37%
4)
Year 3 CF = 1000 * 1.06 = 1,060
Value at year 2 = CF3 / required rate  growth rate
Value at year 2 = 1060 / 0.2637  0.06
Value at year 2 = 5,203.73098
NPV = Present value of cash inflows  present value of cash outflows
NPV = 3500 + 600 / (1 + 0.2637)^{1} + 1000 / (1 + 0.2637)^{2} + 5,203.73098 / (1 + 0.2637)^{2}
NPV = $860.42
