It is growing at a seven percent rate, and faces a 40 percent tax rate. A similar firm with no debt has a cost equity of 17 percent. Under the MM extension with growth, what is its cost of equity? My answer is: (d) 17.5% rsL = rsU + (rsU  rd)(D/S) 17.5% = 15% + (15%10%)(200,000/400,000 I am not sure where you got the 15% number for the rsU or the 200,000 for D or the 400,000 for S the calculations and formula are correct but you used all incorrect inputs so I will give you 1/2 credit A is correct. Instructor Explanation: M & M Extension with Growth  Section 26.4 (pp. 10111015) rsL = rsU + (rsU  rd)(D/S) 19.25% = 17% + (17%12.5%)(350,000/700,000) 


4. Question : (TCO B) Firm L has debt with a market value of $200,000 and a yield of nine percent. The firm's equity has a market value of $300,000, its earnings are growing at a five percent rate, and its tax rate is 40 percent. A similar firm with no debt has a cost of equity of 12 percent. Under the MM extension with growth, what would Firm L's total value be if it had no debt?

(b) $377,286
(c) $397,143
(d) $417,000
(e) $437,850 

 Student Answer:  (c) $397,143 VTotal = VU + VTS, so VU = VTotal  VTS = D + S  VTS. Value tax shelter = VTS = rdTD/(rsU  g) = 0.09(0.40)($200,000)/(0.12  0.05) = $102,857 VU = $300,000 + $200,000  $102,857 = $397,143   Instructor Explanation: Answer is: c
