Which of the following is true for a company that doesn't adjust their WACC for project risk? a. The company would accept more average risk projects than they should otherwise. b. The company's risk would decrease. c. The company would accept more less than average risk projects than they should otherwise. d. The company would accept more riskier than average projects than they should otherwise.
d. The company would accept more riskier than average projects than they should otherwise.
A company's Weighted Average Cost of Capital can enable it know the calibre of risk to accept from new project because it shows the business risk of funding current business operations.
If a project will bring more risk to the company, the WACC should be adjusted so that the company will get a fair rate of return from the new project. If they do not adjust the new project for risk, not only will the company not get a fair return but they might also accept riskier projects because they will accept projects that they think have a lower risk than their WACC even though they are higher because they did not adjust their WACC.
