Calculating WACC for Security Market Value
November 16th, 2022
I need your help with this problem. How do I calculate WACC; Reactive Industries has the following capital structure. Its corporate tax rate is 35 percent. What is its WACC?
SECURITY MARKET VALUE REQUIRED RATE OF RETURN
DEBT $20 Million 6%
PREFERRED STOCK $10 Million 8%
COMMON STOCK $50 Million 12%
Can you help me with the meanings of abbreviations and formulas if they are used. And can you tell me the meaning of WACC, also can you explain how you got the answer, if you used EXCEL or financial calculator. I am not familiar with them.
Thank you your help is GREATLY appreciated.
