5. A firm has determined its optimal capital structure, which is composed of the following sources

and target market value proportions:

Sources of Capital                                      Target Market Proportions

Long term debt                                                       30%

Preferred stock                                                        5

Common stock equity                                            65

Debt: The firm can sell a 20-year, $1,000 par value, 9 percent bond for $980. A flotation cost of 2

percent of the face value would be required in addition to the discount of $20.

Preferred Stock: The firm has determined it can issue preferred stock at $65 per share par value.

The stock will pay an $8.00 annual dividend. The cost of issuing and selling the stock is $3 per

share.

Common Stock: The firm’s common stock is currently selling for $40 per share. The dividend

expected to be paid at the end of the coming year is $5.07. Its dividend payments have been

growing at a constant rate for the last five years. Five years ago, the dividend was $3.45. It is

expected that to sell, a new common stock issue must be underpriced at $1 per share and the firm

must pay $1 per share in flotation costs. Additionally, the firm’s marginal tax rate is 40 percent.

Calculate the firm’s weighted average cost of capital assuming the firm has exhausted all retained

earnings.
