Calculate marginal tax rate, Financial Accounting

Rogers Communication is considering whether to take advantage of historically low Canadian interest rates and lower its cost of debt by refunding its old bonds. Rogers has a $50million bond issue outstanding with a 12 percent annual coupon. These 15 year bonds were sold 5 years ago, and can be called in at a 10% call premium. According to investment bankers, the firm can sell $60million, 10 year bonds with an annual coupon rate of 8 percent, and floatation costs of $5million. Rogers' marginal tax rate is 40%. The new bonds will be sold one month before the old issue is called, and funds can be invested in treasury bills yielding 8%. The additional $10million from the new bond issue could be invested in a 10 year project with an expected NPV of $2.5million. Should Rogers proceed with the refunding? The answer should show all four working steps.
