Chapter 10     The Cost of Capital Required Rate of Return(Req’d ROR):  the minimum return an investor requires         to purchase a security or invest in a project. I. Two differences between Req’d ROR and Cost of Capital A. Taxes:  interest expense on borrowed money is tax-deductible.        Ex:  Borrow at 8% and firm’s marginal tax rate is 30%.      Actual Cost of Capital = 8% x (1 - .30) =  5.6% B. Floatation Costs:  transaction costs a firm pays to raise                                 capital by issuing new securities. Ex:  A firm sells new shares of stock for \$20.00 per share and floatation       costs are \$2.00 per share.  The investor’s Req’d ROR is 7%.        To satisfy the investor’s Req’d ROR, the firm must earn: 7%  x  \$20.00  =  \$1.40 per share.         But, the firm only has \$18.00 to work with, so the cost of capital is          the amount that has to be earned on the \$18.00 proceeds:                         \$1.40   K E  = ---------------- =  7.1%                   (20.00-2.00) II.    Definitions A.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
