Bono, Inc., is considering a project that will result in initial aftertax cash savings of \$5.1 million at the end of the first year, and these savings will grow at a rate of 3 percent per year indefinitely. The firm has a target debt-equity ratio of .50, a cost of equity of 13 percent, and an aftertax cost of debt of 6.4 percent. The cost-saving proposal is somewhat riskier than the usual project the firm undertakes; management uses the subjective approach and applies an adjustment factor of +2 percent to the cost of capital for such risky projects.
Calculate the WACC_____%

By using the debt equity ratio we will calculate the WACC
WACC = (.50 /1.50) (.064) + (1/ 1.50) (.13)
