I am not working with anyone else. This is my first time on the site. I do apalogize. I am not very sure how to even proceed with you. I am working on removing the other expert now.

that is fine. how will it look completed? I need to show work for full credit. excel is best way. I am asking so I can plan for how much time i will need after I receive? on a side note I want to see the work becase I really need help learning the information as well.

There is missing information for one of those problems, you would need to email the instructor and ask him where are the capital structures for questions 5 & 10.

I am done with the solutions and can provide them using the same capital structure if you want me to

I am 90% sure the structure will be used for both questions. I will email the instructor however the likelihood of receiving a response today in not high.

I put the assignment in here so that you can look and give me your opinion before a transfer more funds out. This is due Tuesday and needs both a word dock and excel. I can move your summary to word later for proper formatting.

I accepted the answer, added a tip, and left positive feedback. This is the next assignment. If you are willing to do this let me know and I will post tonight. There is one stock valuation and a investment question. The two are not related. thank you

The company is preparing to make investments and wants to determine the discount rate, or cost of capital, at which to value these investments.

You are given the following for Cardinal & Cardinal, Inc. Their tax rate is 34%. The firm is in need of $5 million dollars in external funds. Your bond advisor suggests that new bond issues can be lower than the current yield to maturity by 1.5% .

Existing capital structure:

C&C Debt: 4,000 Eight percent (8%) coupon bonds outstanding. The par value is $1000 and they mature in ten years. They are currently selling for $1010 and make semiannual payments.

C&C Equity: 50,000 shares outstanding. The common stock is currently selling for $62 per share. The beta for the company is 1.10.

C&C Preferred Stock: 9,000 shares of 4% preferred stock with a par value of $100, and is currently selling for $60 per share.

Market Information: The risk of the market is 8% and the risk-free rate is 3%. The industry debt-equity ratio is 33%. The flotation rate for debt is 3% and for equity it is 4%.

Calculate the existing weighted average cost of capital, Calculate the new cost of capital when the $5M in new funds is added. Show your calculations of the capital structure, assess the capital structure, compare recommend the new funding choice impacts on capital structure, and determine the firm's new weighted average cost of capital in a executive summary of 3 to 5 pages.
