MCE = (D1 / P0 -f)*100 (for zero growth firm)

Also cost of equity

Ke =  (D1 / P0 -f) (for normal growth firm)

Where: d1 = expected DPS = d0(1+g)

           P0 = current MPS

           f = floation costs

           g = growth rate in equity

1. Cost of preference share capital as:

Kp =(DP / P0 -f)*100  

Where: Kp = Cost of preference

           Dp = Dividend per share

           Po = MPS (Market price per share)

           F   = Flotation costs

2. Cost of debenture

Kd = Int (1-T) / Vd - f

Whereas: Kd = Cost of debt

               Int   = interest

               Po = Market price for debenture (at discount)

               f   = flotation costs

               t = Tax rate
