Summary Deluxe Corporation is the dominant player in check-printing industry. In the past, its sales increased at a compound annual rate of 12% and occupied 49% market share in US. However, new forms of payments encroached on the demand of check-printing industry. The demand for printing check falls at 1% to 3% annually. The core business of Deluxe faces a big challenge. In the late summer, Singh, the retained by Deluxe’s board of directors was designated to submit a plan for the new round of debt issuing. It’s certain that someday in the future the company may struggle to survive. In order to deal with bad situation in the future, Deluxe must maintain financial flexibility and lower its cost of capital by changing into appropriate capital structure. There are three alternatives in this case. They are issuing bond at AA, A and BBB rating. And in each situation, we get the lowest WACC. In the implementation, we decide to issue bonds at rating BBB. Problem Statement Deluxe Corporation will face a big challenge for its core business which means that the company would struggle to survive in the future. There is a new round of issuing debt at hand which may help Deluxe to relieve some pressure for the future. This new debt could help increase financial flexibility and change capital structure which produces lowest cost of capital.
