THANK YOU WACC and Optimal Capital Structure eBook Elliott Athletics is trying to determine its optimal capital structure, which now consists of only debt and common equity. The firm does not currently use preferred stock in its capital structure, and it does not plan to do so in the future. To estimate how much its debt would cost at different debt levels, the company's treasury staff has consulted with investment bankers and, on the basis of those discussions, has created the following table: Market Debt- to-Value Ratio (wd) Market Equity-to-Value Ratio (we) Market Debt- to-Equity Ratio (D/S) Bond Rating Before-Tax Cost of Debt (rd) 0.0 1.0 0.00 A 7.0% 0.2 0.8 0.25 BBB 8.0 0.4 0.6 0.67 BB 10.0 0.6 0.4 1.50 C 12.0 0.8 0.2 4.00 D 15.0 Elliott uses the CAPM to estimate its cost of common equity, rs. The company estimates that the risk-free rate is 5%, the market risk premium is 6%, and the company's tax rate is 40%.
