REVIEW PROBLEMS
WEEK 5
Question 1:

## 1.      Novack Enterprises is considering undertaking a new peoject.

The company is not publicly traded, and needs to determine the appropriate weighted average cost of capital
to discount the cash flows from its project. Novack Enterprises is engaged in the same business as its publicly traded rival,
Palmer Corporation. Palmer has an equity beta of 1.2 and a debt-to-value ratio of 40%. Novack is planning to target a
25% debt-to-value ratio for this project. What weighted average cost of capital (WACC) should Novack use?
In your analysis please assume the following: The beta of debt for Novack Enterprises is 0.5
and for Palmer Corp is 0.25, the risk free rate is 4%, the market risk premium is 5%, the corporate tax rate is 40%,
and interest expense is tax deductible.

beta debt Novack 0.5 WACC 6.65000% = (e/v) * r equity + (d/v) * (1 - tax rate)* r debt
beta debt Palmer 0.25
Eq beta Palmer 1.2 r equity Novack 7.567% = risk free + Beta equity * MRP
d/ v Palmer 40%
risk free 4% Beta equity Novack 0.713333333 = beta assets - (D/E) *(beta assets - b d
MRP 5%
tax rate 40% r debt novack 6.50%

## Beta assets Palmer 0.82

= Beta assets Novack
