Short Paper Part 1 
1) Calculate the WACC
We are told:
Weights of 30% debt and 70% common equity (no preferred equity)
A 35% tax rate
The cost of debt is now 9% 
The beta of the company is 1.2
The risk free rate is 2%
The return on the market is 12%
First calculate the expected cost of equity determined using the CAPM: 
CAPM = Risk Free Rate + Equity Beta * Market Risk Premium
market risk premium = Return on Market – Risk free rate
CAPM = Rrf + (beta*(retrurn on market – Rrf)
Next calculate the WACC of the firm:
WACC = (Weight Debt * Cost of Debt) + (Weight Equity * Cost of Equity )
Cost of debt*(1-Tax rate)
