MMI: * Value of unlevered firm = value of levered firm * One capital structure is as good as another * Leverage does not affect value of firm * Capital structure changes do not affect stockholders welfare * Does not hold in presence of taxes b/c levered firms pay less taxes compared to unlevered firms. * Stock price of firm does not vary with amount of debt since # of shares is reduced as debt increases. MMI with taxes: * Capital structure affects firm value * By raising debt-to-equity ratio, firm can lower its taxes and increase value * Firm value is maximized at an all debt capital structure MMII: * Expected return on equity is positively related to leverage * Required return on equity is a linear function of the firms debt-to-equity ratio * Risk to equity increases with leverage * Use of firm’s overall WACC to select investments is theoretically acceptable when systemic risk of projects are equal to systemic risk of firm. * If project risk is different than firm risk, must calculate project discount rate based on project risk.

Overall cost of capital = 10%. Firm is considering 60% debt. Interest rate on debt = 8%. What is cost of equity capital in new structure? R s = R0 + S (R0- R B ) B 13% = 10% + 40 (10% - 8%) 60 B = debt S = equity CAPM E(R i ) = R f +B i [E(R m ) - R f ] Expected Return = Current Risk-Free Rate + Risk Premium Typical Negative Covenant of a Loan Document include: * Limitations are placed on the amount of dividends a company may pay. * Firm may not pledge any of its assets to other lenders * Firm may not merge with another firm * Firm may not sell or lease its major assets without approval by lender * Firm may not issue additional long-term debt * Positive covenant = MUST do. Negative covenant = limit actions.
