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. 1011-1015) rsL = rsU + (rsU - rd)(D/S) 19.25% = 17% + (17%-12.5%)(350,000/700,000) |
