Unfortunately, the company has fallen on hard times. The 6 million shares are trading for only Rs, 4 apiece, and the market value of its debt securities is 20% below the face (book) value. Because of the company's large cumulative losses, it will pay no taxes on future income. Suppose shareholders now demand a 20% expected rate of return. The bonds are now yielding 14%. What is the weighted-average cost of capital?
