# Calculate the weighted average cost of capital (WACC)

#1 Determine the weighted average cost of capital for a firm given the follow info below:

Equity : $200,000 shares;stock price of $73

Beta of 1.54; risk free rate of 4%; risk premium of 6%

Debt info: Book value of $3 million; interest expense of $278,000; average maturity of 13 years; Pre-tax cost of debt of 6.5%; tax rate of 30%

#2 What is the weighted average cost of capital if stock falls to $65.70 (a 10% decline in price). Leave all other variables as the same before

#3 What is the weighted average cost of capital is stock prices fall for $65.70 and the beta of the firm rises to 1.60. Leave all other variables to same as before.

#4 Suppose the pre-tax costs of debt increases to 8% because of the fall in stock price and rise in systematic risk. Determine the weighted average cost of capital.
