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

I have several problems like this and no template or examples to follow.

Can you help with this problem?

Thanks!!

#### Solution Preview

Asset beta = E/V X equity beta

where

E = Total Equity

V = Total capital

Since ClearDebt is all equity firm, there is no debt and so total capital = total equity and so ...

#### Solution Summary

The solution explains how to calculate the weighted-average cost of capital.
