Barton Industries expects next year's annual dividend, D1, to be \$2.30 and it expects dividends to grow at a constant rate g = 4.9%. The firm's current common stock price, P0, is \$25.00. If it needs to issue new common stock, the firm will encounter a 4.5% flotation cost, F. What is the flotation cost adjustment that must be added to its cost of retained earnings?

_____%

1b

What is the cost of new common equity considering the estimate made from the three estimation methodologies? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places.

_____%

Floatation cost adjustment = cost of equity with floatation cost - cost of equity without floatation cost

cost of equity floatation cost= D1 / P0(1-F)+g

cost of equity floatation cost =[2.3/25*(1-4.5%)] +4.9% =14.53%

cost of equity without floatation cost= [2.3/25] +4.9% = 14.1%

Flotation adjustment is the difference between cost new equity including Flotation costs less Cost of equity without flotation costs

= 15.39%-14.8%

= 0.59%

Q1: cost of new common equity= 14.53%
