Ch 13 problem ABC is all equity, with 200,000 shares outstanding. EBIT is $2,000,000 and will remain constant. All earnings are paid out as dividends. The tax rate is 40%. The firm wants to issue $2 million in bonds and repurchase stock. The bonds would have a YTM of 10%. The risk free rate is 6.6% and the market risk premium is 6%.
