 WACC %

WACC of Lannister Corporation =Weight of Equity*Cost of Equity+Weight of Debt*Cost of Debt*(1-Tax rate)
=1/(1+0.45)*11%+0.45/(1+0.45)*6%*(1-25%) =8.98%

Value of debt =Number of Bonds*105%*Par Value =8000*105%*1000 =8,400,000
Semi annual coupon =5.7%*1000/2 =28.50
Number of Periods =23*2 =46
Par Value =1000
Price =1000*105%=1050
YTM using excel formula =2*RATE(46,28.50,-1050,1000) =5.3206%

Value of Equity =Number of Shares *Price of Share =410000*59 =24,190,000
Cost of equity =Risk free Rate+Beta*(Market Return-Risk Free Rate) =4.5%+1.10*7% =12.20%

Value of Preferred Stock =17500*80 =1,400,000
Cost of Preferred Stock =Dividend/Price =3.5%*100/80 =4.3750%

Total Value =8,400,000+24,190,000+1,400,000 =33,990,000

WACC =Weight of Equity*Cost of Equity+Weight of Preferred Stock*Cost of Preferred Stock+Weight of Debt*Cost of Debt*(1-Tax Rate) =24190000/33990000*12.20%+1400000/33990000*4.3750%+8400000/33990000*5.3206%*(1-25%) =9.85%
