12.9 Consider a levered firm’s projects that have similar risks to the firm as a whole. Is the discount

rate for the projects higher or lower than the rate computed using the security market line? Why?

12.10 What factors determine the beta of a stock? Define and describe each.

12.11 Lizpaz Inc. is a levered firm with a debt-to-equity ratio of 0.25. The beta of the common stock is

1.15, while the beta of the debt is 0.3. The market-risk premium is 10 percent and the risk-free

rate is six percent. The corporate tax rate is 35 percent.

b. If a new company project has the same risk as the overall firm, what is the weighted

average cost of capital for the project?

12.12 Adobe Online Inc. has an equity beta of 1.29 and a debt-to-equity ratio of 1.0. The expected

return on the market is 13 percent and the risk-free rate is seven percent. The before-tax cost of

debt capital is seven percent. The corporate tax rate is 35 percent.

b. What is Adobe Online’s weighted average cost of capital?

12.13 Calculate the weighted average cost of capital for the Luxury Porcelain Company. The book value

of Luxury’s outstanding debt is $60 million. Currently, the debt is trading at 120 percent of book

value and is priced to yield 12 percent. The 5 million outstanding shares of Luxury stock are

trading at $20 per share. The required return on Luxury stock is 18 percent. The tax rate is 25

percent.

12.14 First Data Co. has 20 million shares of common stock outstanding that are currently trading at $25

per share. The firm’s debt is publicly trading at 95 percent of its $180 million face value. The

before-tax cost of debt is 10 percent and the cost of equity is 20 percent. What is the weighted

average cost of capital for the firm? Assume a corporate tax rate of 40 percent.

12.15 Lavan Industries, Inc., is considering a new project with a $25 million initial outlay. The project

will generate after-tax (year-end) cash flows of $7 million for five years. The firm has a debt-to-

equity ratio of 0.75. The cost of equity is 15 percent and the before-tax cost of debt is nine

percent. The corporate tax rate is 35 percent. The project has the same risk as the overall firm.

Should Lavan accept the project?

12.16 Suppose Garageband.com has a 28 percent cost of equity capital and a 10 percent before-tax cost

of debt capital. The firm’s debt-to-equity ratio is 1.0. Garageband.com is interested in investing

in a guitar factory that will cost $1,000,000 and will provide $600,000 pre-tax annual cash flows

for five years. The project risk is similar to the overall risk of the firm. What is the net present

value of this project if Garageband.com’s tax rate is 35%?
