A firm uses only debt and equity in its capital structure. The firm’s weight of debt is 75 percent. The firm could issue new bonds at a yield to maturity of 12 percent and the firm has a tax rate of 21 percent. If the firm’s WACC is 13 percent, what is the firm’s cost of equity?

 

13% = 0.75(12%)(1 − 0.21) + (1 − 0.75)(Cost of equity); Cost of equity = 23.56%.
