We are going to utilize discount cash flow method to know the value of Torrington. After using the DCF method, we found that the weighted average cost of capital to be 10.6%. We supposed that the cost of debt would be 7.23 %( exhibit 9 bbb yield), the tax rate would be 40 % and also the coast of equity would be 11.6%. The risk premium will be 6%, the risk free rate would be 4.97% (from exhibit 9), and the beta would be 1.1(from exhibit 8). We calculate the debt to find weight of debt and weight of equity, the debt is 461.2(from exhibit 8) and for equity 1065.12 we multiply the number of shares ( 63,4) to share price ( 16.8), weight of equity would be 70%, and weight of debt would be 70%.
