a. What is the market value of its equity?
Equity = 1.1 million shares * $50.29 + $28.5 million = $83.819 million

Debt = $18.4 million * 101% /100% = $18.584 million

c. What weights should it use in a computing its WACC?

For equity: Equity / (Equity + Debt) = $83.819 million / ($83.819million + =$18.584 million) = 0.8185
For debt: Debt / (Equity + Debt) =$18.584 million =0.1815
