Problem 11.1 Houston Oil Company What is Houston's weighted average cost of capital? Assumptions a) Values b) Values Houston's beta 1.10 0.80 Cost of debt, before tax 7.000% 7.000% Risk-free rate of interest 3.000% 3.000% Corporate income tax rate 25.000% 25.000% General return on market portfolio 8.000% 8.000% Optimal capital structure: Proportion of debt, D/V 60% 60% Proportion of equity, E/V 40% 40% Calculation of the WACC Cost of debt, after-tax 5.250% 5.250% kd x ( 1 - t ) Cost of equity, after-tax 8.500% 7.000% WACC 6.550% 5.950% WACC = [ ke x E/V ] + [ ( kd x ( 1 - t ) ) x D/V ] ke = krf + ( km - krf ) β

Problem 11.2 Carlton's Cost of Capital Calculate the cost of equity, debt, and WACC. Values used Original assumptions in Chapter in Chapter New Values 1.20 1.30 Cost of debt, before tax, kd 8.00% 7.000% Risk-free rate of interest, krf 5.00% 4.000% Corporate income tax rate, t 35.00% 30.000% General return on market portfolio, km 15.00% 9.000% Optimal capital structure: Proportion of debt, D/V 40% 50% Proportion of equity, E/V 60% 50% a) Cartlon's cost of equity 17.000% 10.500% b) Carlton's cost of debt, after tax 5.200% 4.900% kd x ( 1 - t ) c) Carlton's weighted average cost of capital 12.2800% 7.7000% WACC = [ ke x E/V ] + [ ( kd x ( 1 - t ) ) x D/V ] One of the most interesting aspects of capital costs is how they have been trending downward in recent years as a result of lower interest rates, lower equity market returns, and in some countries, lower tax rates. As a result of the general decline in business and economic performance, many firms have been reducing their debt levels -- if possible -- in order to reduce their debt service requirements. But, one factor which has not necessarily fallen in value is the beta of the individual firm. Here Carlton's cost of capital has fallen dramatically, but its beta is actually higher than before due to more market volatility. Carlton's beta, β ke = krf + ( km - krf ) β
