#### Description

Appendix WACC - Marriott 2. Estimate the cost of capital (rwacc) for Marriott as a whole.

Givens: Company as a whole Target Debt Ratio (D/V) Target Debt to Equity Ratio (D/E) Debt Rate Prem above Gov't Tax Rate (t) (See Tax Rate Calculation)

60% 1.5 1.30% 44.8%

US Gov't Interest Rates Maturity Rate 30-year 8.95% 10-year 8.72% 1-year 6.90%

Calculation of Cost of Debt (Rd): Since Lodging using the long-term debt and restuarants and contract services use the shortterm debt, I am going to use the 10-year gov't interest rate to calculate the cost of debt (Rd). Rd = Debt rate prem above Gov't + 10-year gov't interest rate Rd 10.02%

Calcuation of WACC: WACC = (D/V)*(1-t)*Rd+(E/V)*Re

Calculation of Cost of Equity (Re): WACC Marriott uses the Capm model to calculate cost of equity. Capm = Rf + B(expected levered)*(equity premium) Rf = 10-year gov't interest rate B(levered) Equity Premium** Actual D/V (given in case) Actual D/E
