Valuation and Capital Budgeting for the Levered Firm
17.1 AdjustedPresentValue Approach (APV)
APV = NPV + NPVF
o
Value of a project to a levered firm (APV) = Project of unlevered firm
+
NPV of
financing side effects
Side effects:
1.
Tax subsidy to debt 
for perpetual debt, value of tax subsidy is T
C
B
2.
Cost of issuing new securities
3.
Cost of financial distress
4.
Subsidies to debt financing →
Interest on debt issued by state/local government is
not taxable to the investor (Subsidy adds value)
Present value
of a project is determined before initial investment at date 0 is subtracted
→The initial investment is subtracted for the calculation of
net present value
Lend a fixed percentage of market value of a project not a fixed percentage of initial
investment
Net present value of project under leverage APV = NPV + T
