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%
floatation cost adjustment= 14.53-14.1 =.43%
