# 5. (Cost of borrowing alternatives) Exxon Mobil has a 34% tax

5. (Cost of borrowing alternatives) Exxon Mobil has a 34% tax rate and has decided to issue \$100 million of seven-year debt. It has three alternatives. A U.S. public offering would require an 8% coupon with interest payable semiannually and \$900,000 of flotation expense. A U.S. private placement would require an 8-3/8% coupon with interest payable semiannually and \$500,000 of flotation expense. A Eurobond offering would require an 8-1/8% coupon with interest payable annually and \$1,100,000 of flotation expense.
a. Calculate the after-tax cost of borrowing for each alternative.
b. Which alternative has the lowest cost of borrowing?

C1. (Cost of borrowing) A firm issues a 10-year debt obligation that bears a 12% coupon rate and gives the investor the right to put the bond back to the issuer at the end of the fifth year at 103% of its face amount. The issue has no sinking fund. Interest is paid semiannually. The issuer’s tax rate is 34%.
a. Calculate the after-tax cost of debt, assuming the debt remains outstanding until maturity.
b. Calculate the after-tax cost of debt, assuming investors put the bond back to the firm at the end of the fifth year. (Note: Any unamortized issuance expenses and any redemption premium can be deducted for tax purposes in the year of redemption.)

Hello

The way Just Answer works is that as long as the question has not been answered and no one was specifically requested then any expert can post a solution.

If you prefer to wait for Stephen then please do, there is no problem at all. I have included the steps for answering the question yet if you'd rather wait, then please wait for him to post a solution

No that is fine...sorry first time...I just did not see the steps.
I will return and look again.
Meant no disrespect

Not at all, there is no disrespect at all. I am sorry if that is what you understood from my response. All I meant to say is that if you want to wait for the other expert because he was talking to you in the beginning, then there is no problem. What is important for us here at JA is to have satisfied customers

Wishing you all the best
