Can your cost of debt ever be greater than your cost of equity?

2 Answers

Disclaimer: The interviewer didn't like my answer. Technically your cost of debt can't be higher than your cost of equity because equity takes on more risk in case of bankruptcy because it falls in the back of the line. However, if you are too highly leveraged then your cost of debt would get pushed really high because of lower credit rankings, frightened suppliers, and other potential bankruptcy costs. This would push your cost of equity higher as well. Therefore, your cost of equity would still be higher than the cost of debt at that point but the increase in both was due to taking on too much debt. I would argue then that the cost of debt was higher than the cost of equity. Less

I think while equity is riskier in the capital structure, the costs of debt and equity also depend on other factors like the credit perception of the company, the captial markets scenario, etc. Imagine a scenario where a company is heavily laden with debt, while stock markets and the economic environment are functioning well. The company will have very high cost of debt, while the cost of equity would be at its normal levels based on how much the market is expected to perform. Thus the cost of debt could be higher than cost of equity Less

There are N number of soccer teams, who must all play against each other in a set amount of time (amount of time is irrelevant).

Didn't get to the answer, but one of the things to remember is that it's nearly impossible to do this with a small number of teams. Less

How would you reconcile EBIT to cash flow

1 Answers

Subtract taxes and add interest. Add depreciation, amortization, and impairments. Where asset accounts increase, subtract by that amount. Where assets decrease, add by that amount. Where liabilities increase, add by that amount. Where liabilities decrease, subtract by that amount. Add issuance of stock and subtract dividends. (That's what I would say in a general sense. You could break it up by operating, investing, and financing activities.) Less
