D1 = is the dividend will be paid next year

D1 = DO "\\times" (1+g)

DO = Dividend just paid, latest or latest dividend paid, last year dividend paid

D1 = 0.90 ( 1 + 0.05)

D1 = 0.90 ( 1.05)

D1 = 0.945

D1 = 0.945

Selling price, SP = 60

Floatation cost, FC = 3"\\%\\times" 60 = 1.80

Growth rate, G = 0.05 OR 5"\\%"

Effective rate="\\frac{D1}{(SP \u2013 FC)} + G"

= "\\frac{0.945}{(60\u2013 1080)} + 0.05"

= "\\frac{0.945}{58.2} + 0.05 = 0.06623\\times100\\% = 6.62\\%"

The best alternative for the company is using Common Stock Financing because effective rate (6.62%) is lower.
