Cost of Capital Bond Debt Example

A company has a bond that has a $ 1000 (face value of bond) and a contract or coupon intrest of 11.5%.

The company's bond has a current market value of $ 1,124 and will mature in 10 years. The company's marginal tax rate is is 34%

What is the cost of capital from this bond debt?

ANSWER:

Cost of Capital for Company = Yield to maturity (YTM) * (1-Marginal Tax Rate)

YTM = (Annual interest+ (Par-Price of Bond )/Number of years until bond maturity )/(Bond par+price)/2

= (115+(1000+1124)/10)/1000+1124/2 =0.0966

Cost of Debt = 0.0966*(1-0.34)=0.063756
