Scenario: You work for an
investment banking firm and have been asked by management of Vestor
Corporation (not real), a software development company, to calculate its
weighted average cost of capital, to use in evaluating a new company
investment. The firm is considering a new investment in a warehousing
facility, which it believes will generate an internal rate of return of
11.5%. The market value of Vestor’s capital structure is as follows:

Common Stock


To finance the investment, Vestor has
issued 20 year bonds with a $1,000 par value, 6% coupon rate and at a
market price of $950. Preferred stock paying a $2.50 annual dividend was
sold for $25 per share. Common stock of Vestor is currently selling for
$50 per share and has a Beta of 1.2. The firm’s tax rate is 34%. The
expected market return of the S&P 500 is 13% and the 10-Year
Treasury note is currently yielding 3.5%.
