Abstract Most finance textbooks present the Weighted Average Cost of Capital WACC calculation as: WACC = Kd×(1-T)×D% + Ke×E% (1) Where Kd is the cost of debt before taxes, T is the tax rate, D% is the percentage of debt on total value, Ke is the cost of equity and E% is the percentage of equity on total value. All of them precise (but not with enough emphasis) that the values to calculate D% y E% are market values. Although they devote special space and thought to calculate Kd and Ke,

After studying this chapter in the lecture, you should be able to: Explain what the cost of capital represents and why it is so important, estimate the cost of equity using the dividend growth model approach and the security market line approach, estimate the cost of debt and the cost of preferred stock, understand when it is appropriate and to use the WACC as a measure of the firm's required rate of return,...
The cost of capital is the cost of using the funds of creditors and owners. The cost of capital for the company as a whole is often used as a basis for estimating project costs of capital. Chapter 3 calculate and interpret the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) of a company.
In the financial appraisal of a project, the cashflow statements are constructed
from two points of view: the Total Investment (TI) Point of View and the Equity
Point of View. One of the most important issues is the estimation of the correct
financial discount rates for the two points of view. In the presence of taxes, the benefit
of the tax shield from the interest deduction may be excluded or included in the free
cashflow (FCF) of the project. Depending on whether the tax shield is included or
excluded, the formulas for the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) will be
Chapter 9 The Cost of Capital
a. The weighted average cost of capital, WACC, is the weighted average of the after-tax component costs of capital—-debt, preferred stock, and common equity. Each weighting factor is the proportion of that type of capital in the optimal, or target, capital structure.
CHAPTER 9 The Cost of Capital
Calculating the weighted average cost of capital
WACC = wdkd(1-T) + wpkp + wcks The w’s refer to the firm’s capital structure weights. The k’s refer to the cost of each component.
Should our analysis focus on before-tax or after-tax capital costs?
Stockholders focus on A-T CFs. Therefore, we should focus on A-T capital costs, i.e.
The Cost of Capital
Define “hurdle rate” and show how it relates to the firm’s Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC). Calculate the WACC using both book- and market-value weights. Calculate component costs of capital with flotation costs and taxes.
