W8_ANG_WACC for Student Pick-up Service


Problem Statement

As per my promise on my last blog posting, now I would discuss to determine MARR in the arrangement that the fund is mixed between equity and debt (borrowed fund). I would put two scenarios on the borrowed fund: 1st is ten million rupiah (21.74% of investment) and 2nd is forty million rupiah (86.96% of investment) which both are using the same pessimistic approach as mentioned on my 5 blog posting.

In the next blog posting, I plan to discuss ERR triggered by when I calculated the same borrowed fund scenario using most likely approach, the IRR result is very high and I suspect it might be problem of IRR calculation method as mentioned on Engineering Book page 205.
