The firm's tax rate is 40%. The current price of the 12% coupon, semiannual payment, non-callable bonds with 15 years to maturity is $1,153.72. New bonds could be issued with no flotation costs. The current price of the firm's 10% $100 par value, quarterly dividend, perpetual preferred stock is $116.95. The flotation costs on a new issue would be 5% of the proceeds.
4. The current price of the common stock is $50 per share. The last dividend was $4.19, and dividends are expected to grow at a constant rate of 5%. The firm's beta is 1.2, the yield on T-bonds is 7%, and the market risk premium is 6%.
5. The target capital structure is 30% long-term debt, 10% preferred stock, and 60% common equity.

1. What sources of capital should be included when you estimate XYZ's WACC? The WACC is used primarily for making long-term capital investment decisions, I.E., for capital budgeting. Thus, the WACC should include the types of capital used to pay for long-term assets, and this is typically long-term debt, preferred stock (if used), and common stock. Short-term sources of capital consist of (1) spontaneous, noninterest-bearing liabilities such as accounts payable and accruals and (2) short-term interest-bearing debt, such as notes payable. If the firm uses short-term interest-bearing debt to acquire fixed assets rather than just to finance working capital needs, then the wacc should include a short-term debt component. Noninterest bearing debt is generally not included in the cost of capital estimate because these funds are netted out when determining investment needs, that is, net operating rather than gross operating working capital is included in capital expenditures.

2. Should the component costs be estimated on a before or after-tax basis? Why? Stockholders are concerned primarily with those corporate cash flows that are available for their…...

Blades would have several advantages if they started to import and or export from Thailand.

Since several of Blades competitors are already importing components from Thailand, importing would increase Blades’ competitiveness in the United States. If Blades is considering longer range plans in Thailand, importing from and exporting to Thailand may present it with an opportunity to establish initial relationships with some Thai suppliers. Also if they expand to Thailand, Blades, Inc. could be one of the first firms to sell roller blades there and this would give them a competitive advantage. 1.

...performed by managers. Also managers must be adaptable to the different possible situations to execute these functions. (6) In my opinion traditional management like military style of management. That types of managements are very hierarchical, organized, disciplined. according to hierarchical order the person who has ordered, can't tell his or her idea. The ability of management is derived from the power of the position not from management. However the project management mostly depends on soft skills - consensus building, relationships, listening, and understanding, taking the team along with you willingly than dragging them along with you. I think that qualities of the project management makes it more suitable than traditional management. (7) Project management and it's methods had their origins in 1960s during the early missile and space programs. Because of the complexity of the projects, old managements couldn't control the projects efficiently. That's why many projects suffered from enormous cost and schedule overruns. Industrial managers have developed control methods and started to use the project management methods to manage construction and large-scale non-construction jobs.

...What is Agency Problems When a principal hires an agent to carry out specific tasks, the hiring is termed a "principal-agent relationship," or simply an "agency relationship." When a conflict of interest between the needs of the principal and those of the agent arises, the conflict is called an "agency problem." In financial markets, agency problems occur between the stockholders (principal) and corporate managers (agents). While the stockholders call on the managers to take care of the company, the managers may look to their own needs first. In finance, there are two primary agency relationships: * Managers and stockholders * Managers and creditors PROBLEMS BTW STOCKHOLDERS versus MANAGER and STOCKHOLDERS versus CREDITORS... 1. Stockholders versus Managers * If the manager owns less than 100% of the firm's common stock, a potential agency problem between mangers and stockholders exists. * Managers may make decisions that conflict with the best interests of the shareholders. For example, managers may grow their firms to escape a takeover attempt to increase their own job security. However, a takeover may be in the shareholders' best interest 2. Stockholders versus Creditors * Creditors decide to loan money to a corporation based on the riskiness of the company, its capital structure and its potential capital structure. All of these factors will affect the company's potential cash flow, which is a creditors' main concern. *......
