Part 1 To make a few capital budgeting decisions, Bremond Equipment Supply Corporation (BESC) needs to know what its weighted average cost of capital is. The corporation has already decided on the capitalization ratio. Calculate the firm’s WAAC using these ratios.
Source of Capital Proportions and Target Market
25% in long-term debt, 6% in preferred stock
Equity in common shares is 69%.
Debt: BESC is able to sell a 15-year, 8.75 percent, \$1,000 par value bond for \$985. In addition to the \$15 discount, a flotation cost equal to 1.75 percent of the face value would be needed.
BESC has concluded that it is able to issue preferred stock at a par value of \$70 per share. The stock will distribute a \$8 yearly dividend. Each unit of stock costs \$2 to issue and sell.
Common Stock: The current share price of BESC’s common stock is \$39. At the end of the upcoming year, a dividend of \$5 is anticipated to be paid. For the past five years, the dividend payments have increased steadily. The dividend was \$3.50 five years ago. A fresh common stock issuance is anticipated to need to be underpriced at \$4 per share in order to sell, and the company will also need to pay flotation fees of \$1 per share.
Additionally, the marginal tax rate for the company is 40%.
We shall deconstruct this challenge into steps to help establish the firm’s WACC.
A. Determine the interest rate for the newly issued bonds, taking into account their semi-annual compounding.
B. Determine the bond issue’s after-tax cost.
C. Determine the price of the new preferred stock issuance.
D. Determine the growth rate of the dividends paid on common shares.
E. Determine the price of the new issue of common stock.
F. Finally, determine the company’s weighted average cost of capital under the assumption that all retained earnings have been used.

Part 2
Another business is calculating its WACC at the moment. You must compute your solution to this problem using the CAPM.
(This problem is entirely independent of Parts 1A and 1B; it contains all the necessary details.)
The market is anticipated to return 7.5% annually, and the present risk-free rate is 2.5%. Beta for the company is 2.1. The business anticipates paying 6.0% of its debt. The company’s target capital structure is 45% debt and 55% equity. 37% is the marginal tax rate.
A. How much does debt cost after taxes?
B. How much does equity cost?
C. Determine the WACC.
