AB - In calculating the average cost of capital for investment projects, one important factor to be determined is the weights for different sources of fund. According to the traditional method to calculate the weighted average cost of capital (WACC), these weights will be determined basing on the market value of the sources of fund relatively to the market value of the project. However, in the case of lending to companies with limited liability status, the lenders have embedded an option into the lending contracts. The value of this option in not accounted for in the traditional method of calculating WACC, which make the results incorrect. This paper applies the Black – Scholes option pricing method to calculate the value of embedded options in lending contracts. From this, we can recalculate the correct weights for different sources of fund and then, calculating the correct weighted average cost of capital.
