If it decides to increase its use of leverage, it must call its old bonds and issue new ones with a 12% coupon. If it decides to decrease its leverage it will call its old bonds and replace them with new 8% coupon bonds. The company will sell or repurchase stock at the new equilibrium price to complete the capital structure change. The firm pays out all earnings as dividends hence its stock is a zero growth stock. It's current cost of equity, rs is 14%. If it increases leverage rs will be 16%. If it decreases leverage rs will be 13%. What is the firm WACC, and total corporate value under each capital structure?
