Business & Finance Question

timer Asked: Nov 19th, 2016

Question description

Your boss is considering borrowing $10,000 from a bank at 8% for a project. She has determined that the rate of return on the project is expected to be 12%.She comments that since the project is earning more than the cost of the debt, it should definitely be undertaken. You assert that the company’s average cost of capital is 13% and the project should not be undertaken. Surprised with your assertiveness she replies, “I don’t care about the average cost of capital. I am only using this debt to finance the project. Since this debt only costs 8%, and the project should earn 12%, it will be profitable!!”Defend your assertion that the project should not be undertaken.
