Capital Structure- The firm’s mix of long term financing and equity financing. 4 Cost of Capital Example- Geothermal Inc. has the following structure. Given that geothermal pays 8% for debt and 14% for equity, what is the Company Cost of Capital? 100% \$647 Assets Value Market 70% \$453 Equity Value Market 30% \$194 Debt Value Market 5 Cost of Capital If you invest in a stock, you require a an expected rate of return, or the cost of capital for your investment in the stock. If you invest in a bond, you require a an expected rate of return, or the cost of capital for the bond. Then, if you invest in a a portfolio of all the firm’s securities (debt and stock), what is the expected rate of return you require?
