Daniel Kaffe, CFO of Kendrick Enterprises, is evaluating a 10-year, 9 percent loan, with gross proceeds of $4,250,000. Kendrick's pretax cost of debt is 9 percent. Flotation costs are estimated to be 1.25 percent of gross proceeds and will be amortized using a straight-line schedule over the 10-year life of the loan. Kendrick is subject to a corporate tax rate of 40 percent. The loan will not increase the risk of financial distress for the firm.
