Measurement of Overall Cost of Capital

Measurement of Overall Cost of Capital:

It is also called as weighted average cost of capital and composite cost of capital. Weighted average cost of capital is the expected average future cost of funds over the long run found by weighting the cost of each specific type of capital by its proportion in the firms capital structure.

The computation of the overall cost of capital (Ko) involves the following steps.

(a) Assigning weights to specific costs.

(b) Multiplying the cost of each of the sources by the appropriate weights.

(c) Dividing the total weighted cost by the total weights.

The overall cost of capital can be calculated with the help of the following formula;

Ko = Kd Wd + Kp Wp + Ke We + Kr Wr
