The Venture Capital Division of Boeing has four projects on the table with three additional leverages of debt. As the financial analyst for the division I was given the task of evaluating the four capital budgeting projects. After evaluating each project I will recommend which project will bring the most value to shareholders and the firm. What is the cost of equity for each project at 0, 20%, and 50% leverage? From the information provided the cost of equity at 0, 20%, and 50% leverage was calculated for each project. For project A at 0% leverage has a 15.2% cost of equity, at 20% leverage the project has a 17.51% cost of equity, at 50% it leverage has 24.44% cost of equity. For project B at 0% leverage has a 15.2% cost of equity, at 20% leverage has a 17.51% cost of equity, at 50% leverage has 24.44% cost of equity.
