a) D/E ratio = 9.6 / 24 = 0.4
b) Cost of equity, rs = Rf + beta x (Rm - Rf) = 6% + 1.25 x (11% - 6%) = 12.25%
Cost of debt, rd = 6%
WACC = wd x rd + ws x rs = 0.4 / 1.4 x 6% + 1 / 1.4 x 12.25% = 10.46%
c) Unlevered beta = Levered Beta / (1 + D/E) = 1.25 / (1 + 0.4) = 0.89
Cost of equity = Rf + beta x (Rm - Rf) = 6% + 0.89 x (11% - 6%) = 10.46%
