Cost of capital is one of the most important concepts in business finance. Capital,
specially long terms are collected from different sources like – debenture (debt), equity
loan, preferred stock, common equity, and retained earnings are known as capital
components. Cost of capital means minimum expected rate of return of total capital
amount of which are collected from different sources. Cost of equity/preferred/debenture
which depends on the expected return of the suppliers.
IM Pandey Says, “The cost of capital to a firm is the minimum return which the
suppliers of capital require. In other words, it is a price of obtaining capital; it is a
compensation for time and risk.”
Cost of capital is those expected dividend rate, less of which they are not
interested to invest. Again, the capitals which are collected through seeing debenture on
loan, cost of the capital is the expected rate of interest of which they are not interested to
purchase debenture or giving loan, i.e. from the view point of investors, minimum
expected rates of returns at which they are interested to supply capital. Average cost of all
sources is called cost of capital.

Opportunity Cost: If an investor invests in any project, he /she has to sacrifice the other
alternative options, expected return of that best alternative options is called “Opportunity
cost.
Marginal Cost: Cost of new or extra investment. To expand a business extra capital is to
be collected. The cost of that extra capital is called Marginal cost.

Problem No: 7
A company was recently formed to manufacture a new product; it has the following
capital structure---
SL             Particulars                    Total Tk
01         10% Debenture                        Tk 16,00,000
02         8% Preferred Stock                       12,00,000
03         Common Stock (40,000 Shares)             10,00,000
The company’s common stock sells for Tk 25 per share and is expected to pay a
Tk 2 Dividend this year which will grow @ 20% for the foreseeable future. The company
has a marginal tax rate of 50%.
(a). Compute a weighted average cost of capital of the company.
(b). Assume that the investment bankers for the company informed that it could
raise an additional tk 1 million in debt by means of a 15 % mortgage debenture. This sale
would result increasing the expected dividend is to Tk 2.50 and leave the growth rate
unaffected but the added risk would cause the price of the stock to fall to Tk 20 per share.
What would be the new weighted average cost of capital?
(c) Assume that an addition on Tk 1 million in mortgage debenture could be sold
to yield 20%. This would cause the price of the common stock to drop to Tk 15 yet to
increase the dividend to Tk 3 and the growth rate is 25%. What would be the impact upon
the cost of capital of the company?

Problem No 8:
As a financial analyst of a large electronics company, you are required to determine the
weighted average cost of capital of the company using (i) book value we weights and (ii)
Market value weights. The following information is available for your proposal (i.e)
consideration). The Company’s present book value capital structure is:

flotation costs, sales price Tk 100.
\(ii). Tk 100 preference share redeemable at par, 10 year maturity, 14% dividend rate, 5%
flotation costs, sales price Tk 100.
(iii). Equity shares Tk 2 per share flotation costs, sales price Tk 22.
In addition, the dividend expected on the equity share at the end of the year is Tk
2 per share. the anticipated growth rate in dividends is 7% and the firm has the practice of
paying all its earnings in the from of dividends. The Corporate tax rate is 50%.
