The cost of issuing new common stock is calculated the same way as the cost of raising equity capital from retained earnings.
False: Flotation costs need to be taken into account when calculating the cost of issuing new common stock, but they do not need to be taken into account when raising capital from retained earnings.
True: The cost of retained earnings and the cost of new common stock are calculated in the same manner, except that the cost of retained earnings is based on the firm's existing common equity, while the cost of new common stock is based on the value of the firm's share price net of its flotation cost.
White Lion Homebuilders is considering investing in a one-year project that requires an initial investment of $500,000. To do so, it will have to issue new common stock and will incur a flotation cost of 2.00%. At the end of the year, the project is expected to produce a cash inflow of $595,000. The rate of return that White Lion expects to earn on its project (net of its flotation costs) is _____(rounded to two decimal places).
Alpha Moose Transporters has a current stock price of $22.35 per share, and is expected to pay a per-share dividend of $2.45 at the end of the year. The company's earnings' and dividends' growth rate are expected to grow at the constant rate of 5.20% into the foreseeable future. If Alpha Moose expects to incur flotation costs of 6.50% of the value of its newly-raised equity funds, then the flotation-adjusted (net) cost of its new common stock (rounded to two decimal places) should be _____.
White Lion Homebuilders Co.'s addition to earnings for this year is expected to be $420,000. Its target capital structure consists of 35% debt, 5% preferred, and 60% equity. Determine White Lion Homebuilders's retained earnings breakpoint:
Turnbull Co. has a target capital structure of 58% debt, 6% preferred stock, and 36% common equity. It has a before-tax cost of debt of 11.1%, and its cost of preferred stock is 12.2%.
If Turnbull can raise all of its equity capital from retained earnings, its cost of common equity will be 14.7%. However, if it is necessary to raise new common equity, it will carry a cost of 16.8%.
If its current tax rate is 25%, how much higher will Turnbull's weighted average cost of capital (WACC) be if it has to raise additional common equity capital by issuing new common stock instead of raising the funds through retained earnings? (Note: Round your intermediate calculations to two decimal places.)
Turnbull Co. is considering a project that requires an initial investment of $1,708,000. The firm will raise the $1,708,000 in capital by issuing $750,000 of debt at a before-tax cost of 8.7%, $78,000 of preferred stock at a cost of 9.9%, and $880,000 of equity at a cost of 13.2%. The firm faces a tax rate of 25%. What will be the WACC for this project? (Note: Round your intermediate calculations to three decimal places.)
Kuhn Co. is considering a new project that will require an initial investment of $20 million. It has a target capital structure of 35% debt, 2% preferred stock, and 63% common equity. Kuhn has noncallable bonds outstanding that mature in five years with a face value of $1,000, an annual coupon rate of 10%, and a market price of $1,050.76. The yield on the company's current bonds is a good approximation of the yield on any new bonds that it issues. The company can sell shares of preferred stock that pay an annual dividend of $8 at a price of $95.70 per share.
Kuhn does not have any retained earnings available to finance this project, so the firm will have to issue new common stock to help fund it. Its common stock is currently selling for $33.35 per share, and it is expected to pay a dividend of $2.78 at the end of next year. Flotation costs will represent 3% of the funds raised by issuing new common stock. The company is projected to grow at a constant rate of 9.2%, and they face a tax rate of 25%. What will be the WACC for this project? (Note: Round your intermediate calculations to two decimal places.)

**Inactive oil and gas structures.** U.S. federal regulations require that operating companies clear all inactive offshore oil and gas structures within 1 year after production ceases. Researchers at the Louisiana State University Center for Energy Studies gathered data on both active and inactive oil and gas structures in the Gulf of Mexico (Oil \& Gas Journal, Jan. 3, 2005). They discovered that the Gulf of Mexico has 2,175 active and 1,225 idle (inactive) structures. The following table breaks down these structures by type (caisson, well protector, or fixed platform). Consider the structure type and active status of one of these oil/gas structures. Find the probability that the structure is either inactive or a fixed platform. | Structure Type | | | | | | :--- | :---: | :---: | :---: | :---: | | | Caisson | Well Protector | Fixed Platform | Totals | | Active | 503 | 225 | 1,447 | 2,175 | | Inactive | 598 | 177 | 450 | 1,225 |
