Nahanni Treasures Corporation is planning a new common stock issue of five million shares to fund a new project. The increase in shares will bring to 25 million the number of shares outstanding. Nahanni's long-term growth rate is 6 percent, and its current required rate of return is 12.6 percent. The firm just paid a $1.00 dividend and the stock sells for $16.06 in the market. On the announcement of the new equity issue, the firm's stock price dropped. Nahanni estimates that the company's growth rate will increase to 6.5 percent with the new project, but since the project is riskier than average, the firm's cost of capital will increase to 13.5 percent. Using the DDM constant growth model, what is the change in the equilibrium stock price?
