WACC= (1-t)*rD(D/V)+rE*(E/V)

t= 0,441 0,441 0,441 0,441

1-t= 0,559 0,559 0,559 0,559

rD= 0,1025 0,1005 0,0830 0,0870

rE= 0,2117 0,1952 0,3050 0,2084

D/V= 0,60 0,74 0,40 0,42

E/V= 0,40 0,26 0,60 0,58

 The capital asset pricing model (CAPM) is a
model that describes the relationship between
systematic risk and expected return for assets,
particularly stocks.

 It is an integral part of the weight average cost of

capital (WACC) as CAPM calculates the cost of
Calculation of Re Mariott Lodging Contract Restaurant

Re= Rf + β X ( Rf- Rm )

Rf 0,0895 0,0895 0,0690 0,0690

β 1,6450 1,4230 2,7860 1,6460

Re 0,2117 0,1952 0,3050 0,2084

Note That: Rf-Rm is called as Risk Premium.As Lodging is long term then we use 7,43%.
8,47% for both restaurant and contracts because they are short term

**Note That: For Long-Term we used S&P 500 and Long-Term U.S Bond Returns In Exhibit 5.
**Note That: For Short-Term we used S&P 500 and Short-Term U.S Treasury Bill Returns In Exhibit 5.
 Unlevered beta (Asset Beta) is the beta of a
company without the impact of debt. It is
also known as the volatility of returns for a
company, without taking into account its
financial leverage.

 Conversely, levered beta (or “equity beta”)

is a measurement that compares the
volatility of returns a company’s stock
against those of the broader market. In other
words, it’s a measure of risk.


UNLEVERED BETA 0,8950 0,5490 2,0300 1,1015

RE-LEVERED BETA 1,6450 1,4230 2,7860 1,6460

 Marriott has to choose a risk value for each of the
business and then go for combining the Hurdle rates for
different business to form a portfolio and decide upon
which business to invest in.

 Based on the WACCs stated for Marriott and its various

departments it’s obvious that the values are different

 If Marriott has used only one hurdle rate then it would be

used the 11.91% rate which is for the entire company.
 As the risk in a business changes, the β value would
change thus changing the hurdle rate. The future
rates that the firm has used to predict the WACC are
themselves prone to change with time.

 That is why WACC needs to be updated regularly to

make accurate decisions.
 We represent the cost of capital with risk, so therefore
the risk in the lodging department is lower when
compared with other departments that have a higher

 While Marriott used this rate, other projects would be

rejected exact Lodging because of its cost of capital
of 9.23% which is lower than Marriott’s WACC as

 A higher rate effects in a negative Net Present Value

as well as a reduced cash flow.
