Find the new cost of equity , Finance Basics

You are interested in the value of Joes Shoe Corporation and its cost of capital. Suppose you believe that the assumptions of Miller-Modigliani's Proposition 1 (without taxes) are valid.

a. Find the new value of the company, the new cost of equity and the new weighted average cost of capital if the currently unlevered company, valued at $1,470,000 (i.e. VU) issues debt of $700,000 at a 9% interest rate. You can assume that the company uses this debt to repurchase stocks. Assume also that the initial cost of equity was 11%.

b. Consider your answer this time with a corporate tax rate of 28%. You may assume that the value of the unlevered firm is still $1,470,000 even though taxes have gone from 0 to 28%.
