Reading Foods is interested in calculating its weighted average cost of capital (WACC). The company’s CFO has collected the following information:
• The target capital structure consists of 40 percent debt and 60 percent common stock.
• The company has 20year noncallable bonds with a par value of $1,000, a 9 percent annual coupon, and a price of $1,075.
• Equity flotation costs are 2 percent.
• The company’s common stock has a beta of 0.8.
• The riskfree rate is 5 percent.
• The market risk premium is 4 percent.
• The company’s tax rate is 40 percent.
• The company plans to use retained earnings to finance the equity portion of its capital structure, so it does not intend to issue any new common stock.
