Hi sir, how do i work out the following question below. The par value of the loan notes is not given.
Qn ) Gobi Co has irredeemable 4% loan notes in issue with a nominal value of $20million. The current market value of the loan notes is $10million and the tax rate is 25% . The equity shares of Gobi Co have a total market capitalisation of $30million. The company’s weighted average cost of capital is 10%.
What is the cost of equity ?
Answer: 11.3%
The nominal value is another word for par value.
You can calculate the cost of debt ( (20 x 4% x 0.75) / 10 = 6%
So the WACC = (10/40 x 6%) + (30/40 x Ke) = 10%
So now you can calculate Ke 🙂
