WACC as per book value weights


Book value of Equity & Retained Earnings = Rs.15 crores+ Rs.20 crores =Rs.35 crores

Book Value of preference Shares = Rs. 1 crores

Book Value of Debentures =Rs. 10 crores

Book value of Term loan = Rs.12.5 crores


Cost of Equity = Next year Dividend/Share price + growth rate =3.6/40+0.07 = 0.1600 or 16.00%


Cost of Preference Shares = Dividend/ market price of Preference Share = Rs.100*12%/Rs.75 = 0.1600 or 16.00%


Pretax cost of Debentures(r) is given by (assuming annual coupon)


11.5/r*(1-1/(1+r)^6)+100/(1+r)^6 =80


Solving r =0.1708 or 17.08%


Using Book value weights


WACC =

=13.008% or 13.01%


WACC as per market value weights


Market value of Equity & Retained Earnings = No of shares* Market price per share + Rs.20 crores


=15 crores/10 *40 + Rs.20 crores = Rs.80 crores


Market Value of preference Shares = No of preference shares* Market price per preference share


=Rs1 crores /100 * 75 = Rs.0.75 crores


Market Value of Debentures =No of Debentures* Market price per Debenture


=Rs10 crores /100 * 80 = Rs.8 crores


Market value of Term loan = Rs.12.5 crores


Using Market value weights



=14.3852% or 14.39%
