Cost of Capital – Exercise 1

## Robbins Corporation has a target capital structure

consisting of 20 percent debt, 20 percent preferred
stock, and 60 percent common equity. Assume the
firm has insufficient retained earnings to fund the
equity portion of its capital budget. Its bonds have a
12 percent coupon, paid semiannually, a current
maturity of 20 years, and sell for P1,000. The firm
could sell, at par, P100 preferred stock that pays a 12
percent annual dividend, but flotation costs of 5
percent would be incurred.
