Consider the case of Purple Lemon Shipbuilders:

Ten years ago, Purple Lemon Shipbuilders issued a perpetual preferred stock issue—called PS Alpha—that pays a fixed dividend of $7.50 per share and currently sells for $100 per share. Purple Lemon’s management team is considering issuing a second issue of perpetual preferred stock. If the new issue—tentatively called PS Beta—is actually sold, the company will incur an underwriting (or flotation) cost of 5.10%. In addition, the underwriters are anticipating the need to pay a dividend of $12.25 per share to attract new investors, and is expecting to sell the new shares for $104.00 per share.

As a component in Purple Lemon’s weighted average cost of capital, PS Alpha shares currently exhibit a cost of:

A: 7.5% OR 6.38% OR 7.13% OR 7.88%
