Jacobs Corp. wants to calculate its weighted average cost of capital (WACC). The

sold at $950. The firm can issue bonds only

$100 million at this price. Beyond this

amount, the firm can issue the bonds at the same price, but the firm has to pay 9%

semiannual coupon.

The company’s current stock price is $25 per share (P0 = $25).

The company recently paid a dividend of $2 per share (D0 = $2.00).

The dividend is expected to grow at a constant rate of 5 percent a year (g = 6%).

The company pays a 10 percent flotation cost whenever it issues new common

stocks (F = 10%).

The company’s balance sheet shows 70% common stock and 30% debt.

The firm expects to earn
