Now suppose the company has 9.2 million shares of common stock outstanding. The current share price is $62, and the book value per share is $4. The company also has two bond issues outstanding.

The second issue has a face value of $61.8 million and a coupon rate of 8.4 percent and sells for 110.7 percent of par. The first issue matures in 8 years, the second in 27 years.

The company’s stock has a beta of 1.2. The risk-free rate is 4 percent, and the market risk premium is 7.9 percent. Assume that the overall cost of debt is the weighted average implied by the two outstanding debt issues. Both bonds make semiannual payments. The tax rate is 35 percent. What is the company’s WACC?
