This assignment builds upon your work in Units 1, 2, and 3.
A firm’s optimal capital structure report depends on its balance sheet’s debt and equity mix.
A firm’s cost of capital is based on the rates of its sources of capital. Propose the optimal capital structure for both firms, and calculate the mathematical effect of the proposal on the weighted average cost of capital (WAAC). Complete the following:
Calculate the cost of equity, the cost of preferred stock, and the cost of debt for the two firms chosen.
Compute the weighted average cost of capital for each firm.
Evaluate whether the rates calculated are too high or too low based on the financial statements.
Determine if the firm is operating at an optimal capital structure.
Deliverable Requirements: Your capital structure PowerPoint presentation must be at least 15 slides in length. Be sure to cite sources using APA properly; include references and in-text citations.
Submitting your assignment in APA format means, at a minimum, that you will need the following:
Title slide: Remember the running head. The title should be in all capitals.
Length: 15 slides minimum
Body slides: This begins on the slide following the title slide and must be double-spaced (be careful not to triple- or quadruple-space between paragraphs). The typeface should be 12-pt. Times Roman or 12-pt. Courier in regular black type. Do not use color, bold type, or italics, except as required for APA-level headings and references. The deliverable length of the body of your presentation for this assignment is 15 slides. In-body academic citations to support your decisions and analysis are required. A variety of academic sources is encouraged.
Reference slide: References that align with your in-body academic sources are listed on the final slide of your presentation. The references must be in APA format using appropriate spacing, hanging indent, italics, and uppercase and lowercase usage as appropriate for the type of resource used. Remember, the Reference slide is not a bibliography but a further listing of the abbreviated in-body citations used in the presentation. Every referenced item must have a corresponding in-body citation.
