The company is currently financed with 50 percent debt and 50 percent equity (common stock, par value of $10). In order to expand the facilities, Mr. Delsing estimates a need for $3.2 million in additional financing. His investment banker has laid out three plans for him to consider:
- Sell $3.2 million of debt at 14 percent.
- Sell $3.2 million of common stock at $20 per share.
- Sell $1.60 million of debt at 13 percent and $1.60 million of common stock at $25 per share.
