Table 7: Income Statement
The initial returns on cost for the conventional debt option is 11.22% while the initial returns on cost for the tax free debt option is 10.25%. The initial returns on equity for the conventional debt option is 17.86% while the initial returns on equity for the tax free debt option is 43.99%. Table 8 below provides more details on the initial returns.
