Use formulas to calculate the ratios and format the cells to insert a comma if there is more than three numbers. Round to two decimal places no narrative analysis is called for, so clearly label the calculations so that management will be able to comprehend them. a. Market prices are \$1,035 for bonds, \$19 for preferred stock, and \$35 for common stock. There will be sufficient internal common equity funding (i.e. retained earnings) available such that the firm does not plan to issue new common stock. Calculate the firm’s weighted average cost of capital. B. In part a we assumed that Nealon would have sufficient retained earnings such that it would not need to sell additional common stock to finance its new investments. Consider the situation now, when Nealon’s retained earnings anticipated for the coming year are expected to fall short of the equity requirement of 47% of new capital raised. Consequently, the firm foresees the possibility that new common shares will have to be issued. To facilitate the sale of shares, Nealon’s investment banker has advised management that they should expect a price discount of approximately 7% percent, or \$2.45 per share. Under these terms, the new shares should provide net proceeds of about \$32.55. What is Nealon’s cost of equity capital when new shares are sold, what is the weighted average cost of the added funds involved in the issuance of new shares?
