XXXXX XXXXX, Division Vice-President, ask you to evaluate the different opportunities and complete a report for her including your recommendation on which expansions to do (using the methods discussed in the course for capital budgeting). The table below contains the information for each project. Assume all the information given to you is accurate and all three expansions have the same risk. Options for capital structure (determine the WACC and choose the best capital structure for the project): 1. 35% debt at 10% with tax-rate of 40%; no preferred stock; 65% common stock at 15% or 2. 50% debt at 11% with tax-rate of 40%; no preferred stock; 50% common stock at 15%.
