are you okay with my last question?
please advise the capital structure for question 5
Capital Structure ($000)
these amounts were on the bottom of the last question. The last question (9a)ends with "what is the firm's weighted cost of capital?
How would I have known ?
Don't worry about it
Something is wrong
The capital structure that you just posted is it for Shelby or Memphis? (5 or 10?)
There are 2 problems that should have the capital structures listed, please check
if you have the assignment in a file it might be a better idea to upload it to www.mediafire.com
let me know if your not able to get this. thank you
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.
please proceed using the same structure.
I am done already :)
