View my own WACC project -- Brady_WACC_Example Download Brady_WACC_Example -- to guide you. This is especially important to see how I implement the steps that start on the end of page 2 of this document. Note This is a guideline and is not meant to show you exactly step-by-step how to do the project (although it comes close to doing that). In the “real world”, your boss is not going to show you how to do everything. She is going to ask you to do something and you are going to have to do it to the best of your ability. Objective The assignment is to estimate the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) for an actual corporation as of the current time. Actual managers would need to know their company’s WACC as a starting point to estimate the discount rate to use in the net present value analysis of new projects. The project also develops student skills in using elementary financial management models, in dealing with situations where there are too much or too little data, in employing publicly available data sources with little guidance, and in applying sound judgment when encountering naturally occurring measurement errors.
