## Solutions

##### Expert Solution

a.

Step 1 : Calculation of Cost of Capital

Cost of Bond=  (1 + i/n)^n - 1

(Note: The cost of bond will be calculated on the basis of Face Value of Bond)

i= Rate of Interest =10%

n= Compounding time in a year= 2

Cost of Bond= (1+0.10/2)^2-1

= (1.05^2)-1

= 0.1025 or say 10.25%

Cost of Equity (Ke)= Risk Free Rate+ (Beta x Risk Premium), here risk premium is Market Rate- Risk Free Rate

Ke = 2.50+ (1.25 x 7.95)

Ke = 12.44%

Step 2: Calculation of WACC

 Value Cost (Before Tax) Cost after Tax Weightage WACC Bonds 5000000 10.25% 6.15% 62.50% 3.84% Equity 3000000 12.44% 12.44% 37.50% 4.67% Total 8000000 8.51%

Therefore, the WACC of MAncini is 8.51%

b.

Step 1: Calculation of Cost of Capital

Cost of Bond After Tax = 12.31 (1-0.40) =7.39%

Cost of Equity = 2.50+(1.40 x 7.95) =13.63%

Step 2 : Calculation of WACC

Note: Face value of Securities not given so the calculation is done on the basis of Market Value of Securities

 Value per Share/ Bond No. of Security Value of Security Weightage Cost WACC Bonds 995.00 3000 2985000 32.91% 7.39% 2.43% Equity 23.40 260000 6084000 67.09% 13.63% 9.14% Total 9069000 11.58%

WACC of SACO is 11.58%
