Calculating WACC  WACC Calculation Example
I have been asked to calculate the WACC using the following info: Capital structure: Ordinary shares (fully paid) :1000000, preference shares: (11%) 400000, debentures: (10%) 600000. The ordinary share holders expect a divident of 14% per year. Corporate tax is estimated at 30%.

I did a bit of work on the above challenge, but I'm not sure if I'm on the right track... could someone point out if there are any mistakes? (600,000/2.000,000 * 10% * (130%)) + (400,000/2.000,000 * 11%) + (1.000,000/2.000,000 * 14%) = 19.2% Thank you for any help provided.
