Geothermals WACC is 11.4%. Executive Fruits WACC is 12.3%. Now
Executive Fruit is considering an investment in geothermal power production.
Should it discount project cash flows at 12.3%? Why or why not?
Geothermals WACC 11.40%
Executive Fruits WACC 12.30%
Solution:
The proper discount rate to discount the project cash flows is 11.40% .
Executive Fruit should use the WACC of Geothermal, not its own WACC, when
evaluating an investment in geothermal power production. The risk of the project
determines the discount rate, and in this case Geothermals WACC is more
reflective of the risk of the project in question.

Icarus Airlines is proposing to go public, and you have been given the task of estimating
the value of its equity. Management plans to maintain debt at 30% of the companys present
value, and you believe that at this capital structure the companys debtholders will demand
a return of 6% and stockholders will require 11%. The company is forecasting that next
years operating cash flow (depreciation plus profit after tax at 40%) will be $68 million and
that investment expenditures will be $30 million. Thereafter, operating cash flows and
investment expenditures are forecast to grow by 4% a year.

Nodebt, Inc., is a firm with all-equity financing. Its equity beta is .80. The Treasury bill rate
is 4%, and the market risk premium is expected to be 10%. What is Nodebts asset beta?
What is Nodebts weighted-average cost of capital? The firm is exempt from paying taxes.

Solution:
Since the firm is all-equity financed, asset beta = equity beta = 0.80

Bunkhouse Electronics is a recently incorporated firm that makes electronic entertainment systems.

a. Calculate two estimates of the firms cost of equity.
b. Which estimate seems more reasonable to you? Why?
Solution:
a. Using the recent growth rate of 30% and the dividend yield of 2%, one estimate would be: 32%
Another estimate, based on the CAPM, would be:

b. The estimate of 32% seems far less reasonable. It is based on a historic growth rate

Practice Problem 15
Olympic Sports has two issues of debt outstanding. One is a 9% coupon bond with a face value
of $20 million, a maturity of 10 years, and a yield to maturity of 10%. The coupons are paid
annually. The other bond issue has a maturity of 15 years, with coupons also paid annually, and
a coupon rate of 10%. The face value of the issue is $25 million, and the issue sells for 94% of
par value. The firms tax rate is 35%.
Bond 1:
Coupon Rate 9%
Total face Value 20 million
Maturity 10.00 years
Yield to maturity 10%
Bond 2:
Coupon Rate 10%
Total face Value 25 million
Maturity 15.00 years
Issue sells for 94%
Tax rate 35%
Face Value 1,000.00
a. What is the before-tax cost of debt for Olympic?
b. What is Olympics after-tax cost of debt?
Solution:
a. The 9% coupon bond has a yield to maturity of 10% and sells for 93.86% of face value,
as shown below:
Present Value $938.55 or 93.86%
Therefore, the market value of the issue is $18.77 million.
The 10% coupon bond sells for 94% of par value and has a yield to maturity of: 10.83%
The market value of the issue is $23.50 million.
Weighted-average before-tax cost of debt = 10.46%
b. After-tax cost of debt = 6.80%

The total market value of Okefenokee Real Estate Company is $6 million, and the total value of its
debt is $4 million. The treasurer estimates that the beta of the stock currently is 1.2 and that the
expected risk premium on the market is 10%. The Treasury bill rate is 4%.
a. What is the required rate of return on Okefenokee stock?
b. What is the beta of the companys existing portfolio of assets? The debt is perceived to be
virtually risk-free.
c. Estimate the weighted-average cost of capital assuming a tax rate of 40%.
d. Estimate the discount rate for an expansion of the companys present business.
e. Suppose the company wants to diversify into the manufacture of rose-colored glasses. The
beta of optical manufacturers with no debt outstanding is 1.4. What is the required rate of
return on Okefenokees new venture? (You should assume that the risky project will not
enable the firm to issue any additional debt.)
Total market value 6.00 $ million
Total value of debt 4.00 $ million
Beta 1.20
Expected risk premium 10%
Treasury bill rate 4%

Solution:
a.
Required rate of return = 16%
b. Weighted-average beta = 0.72
c.
WACC = 10.56%
d. If the company plans to expand its present business, then the WACC is a
reasonable estimate of the discount rate since the risk of the proposed project
is similar to the risk of the existing projects. Use a discount rate of 10.56%
e. The WACC of optical projects should be based on the risk of those projects.

Practice Problem 20
With a tax rate of 35%, Big Oil had a WAAC of 10.5%. Suppose Big Oil is excused from
paying taxes. How would its WACC change? Now suppose Big Oil makes a large stock
issue and uses the proceeds to pay off all its debt. How would the cost of equity change?
Common stock beta 0.85
Risk-free interest rate 6%
Debt Value 385.70
Common stock 1,200.00
Debt interest rates 9%
Cost of equity 12%
Solution:
New WACC = 11.27%
If Big Oil issues new equity and uses the proceeds to pay off all of its debt, the cost
of equity will decrease. There is no longer any leverage, so the equity becomes safer
and therefore commands a lower risk premium. In fact, with all-equity financing, the
cost of equity would be the same as the firms WACC, which is 11.27%. This is less
than the previous value of 12.0%. (We use the WACC derived in the absence of
interest tax shields since, for the all-equity firm, there is no interest tax shield.)

Suppose Big Oil starts from the financing mix in Table 13.3, and then borrows an additional
$200 million from the bank. It then pays out a special $200 million dividend, leaving its assets
and operations unchanged. What happens to Big Oils WACC, still assuming it pays no
taxes? What happens to the cost of equity?
Common stock beta 0.85
Risk-free interest rate 6%
Debt Value 385.70
Common stock 1,200.00
Debt interest rates 9%
Cost of equity 12%
Borrowed 200.00 million
Special Dividend 200.00 million
Solution:
The net effect of Big Oils transaction is to leave the firm with $200 million more
debt (because of the borrowing) and $200 million less equity (because of the
dividend payout). Total assets and business risk are unaffected. The WACC will
remain unchanged because business risk is unchanged. However, the cost of
equity will increase. With the now-higher leverage, the business risk is spread
over a smaller equity base, so each share is now riskier.
