Question 2:

Suppose Indus Motor Company sold an issue of bonds with a 10-year maturity, a Rs.1,000 par value, a 10% coupon rate and  semiannual interest payments.

(a)    Two years after the bonds were issued, the going rate of interest on bonds such as these fell to 6%. At what price would the bonds sell?

Question 3:

Babar Corporation's present capital structure, which is also its target capital structure I, is 40% debt and 60% common equity.

The company's earnings and dividends are growing at a constant rate of 5%; the last dividend (Do) was Rs.2.00; and the current equilibrium stock price is Rs.21.88. Babar can raise all the debt financing its needs at 14.0%. If Babar issues new common stock, a 20% floatation cost will be incurred. The firm's marginal tax rate is 40%.

(a)    What is the maximum amount of new capital that can be raised at the lowest component cost of equity? (In other words, what is the retained earnings break point?)

(b)   What is the component cost of the equity raised by selling new common stock?

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?
