Q5 :

Bruner Breakfast Foods’ (BBF) balance sheet shows a total of $20 million long-term debt with a coupon rate of 8.00% (assume each bond to have a maturity value, M, of $1,000). The yield to maturity on this debt is 10.00%, and the debt has a total current market value of $18 million. The balance sheet also shows that that the company has 10 million shares of stock, and total of common equity (common stock plus retained earnings) is $30 million. The current stock price is $4.50 per share, and stockholders’ required rate of return, r_{s}, is 12.25%. The company recently decided that its target capital structure should have 50% debt, with the balance being common equity. The tax rate is 40%. Calculate WACCs based on target, book, and market value capital structures (Note: I am asking for three (3) separate WACC values here).
