2) Several years ago your company sold a \$1,000 par value, non-callable bonds that now has 12 years to maturity and a 8.00% annual coupon that is paid semiannually. The bond currently sells for \$925, and the companyAc€?cs tax rate is 40%.

What is the component cost of debt for use in the WACC calculation?

3) Suppose that your company just paid a dividend of \$1.2; the dividends are expected to grow at a constant rate of 5% indefinitely. TodayAc€?cs market price/share is \$45. Suppose also that your company has some bonds outstanding in the market selling for \$1,035. The bonds have 8 years left to maturity, with 8% coupon rate with semi-annual payments.
