WACC= E/V × Re+ D/V × Rd × (1-TC)

*Re = Cost of Equity = 16.65%

Rd = Cost of Debt = 7.00%

E/V=Percentage of financing that is equity= 100/130

D/V=Percentage of financing that is debt= 30/130

TC = Corporate tax rate = 0.25 = 25%

WACC= 100/130 × 16.65%+ D30/130 × 7.00% × (1-0.25)

Cost of Capital = 14.02% - 2.5%

= 11.52%

*Re = 3% + 2.1 (6.5%)

= 16.65%
