W E B E X T E N S I O N 21A Projecting Consistent Debt and Interest Expenses P rojecting financial statements for a merger analysis requires explicit assumptions regarding the capital structure in the post-merger years. This extension shows how to project debt and interest expenses that are consistent with the capital structure assumptions. Refer to the worksheet Web 21A in the file Ch21 Tool Kit.xls for all calculations. 21.1 P ROJECTING C ONSISTENT D EBT AND I NTEREST E XPENSES W HEN C APITAL S TRUCTURE I S C ONSTANT Recall that the APV model and the FCFE model both require a projection of interest expense. If the projected interest expense is not consistent with the assumed constant capital structure, then the APV and FCFE models will produce incorrect answers. This section will show how the debt levels and interest expenses in Table 21-3 in the text were constructed in a manner consistent with the assumed constant capital structure. Keep in mind, though, that if the capital structure is assumed to be con- stant, then it is always easier to use the corporate valuation model than either the APV model or the FCFE model. There are five steps required to project debt levels that are consistent with the assumed constant capital structure. 1. Use the techniques of Chapter 12 to project the operating items on the financial statements needed to calculate free cash flows. Notice that these projections don t depend on the capital structure because they are for operating items, not financial items. 2. Calculate the WACC that corresponds to the constant target capital structure. 3. Calculate the horizon value of operations using the corporate valuation model s horizon value formula. 4. Calculate the value of operations in each year of the projections as the present value of the next year s value of operations and the next year s free cash flows. 5. Calculate the projected debt level by multiplying the value of operations by the percent of debt in the assumed constant capital structure. If we assume that all debt is added at the end of the year, then the projected interest expense in any year is the projected interest rate multiplied by the projected amount of debt at the beginning of the year. resource See the worksheet Web 21A in Ch21 Tool Kit.xls on the textbook s Web site for calculations. 1

Step 1. Project Operating Items and Calculate Free Cash Flow The worksheet Web 21A in the file Ch21 Tool Kit.xls shows the projected financial statement items related to Tutwiler Controls s operations and its projected free cash flows. The free cash flows are shown here in the first row of Table 21A-1. The fol- lowing sections explain the other rows of Table 21A-1. Step 2. Use the Target Capital Structure to Calculate the WACC This is the same calculation we performed in Chapter 21. Tutwiler will maintain its current capital structure, which consists of 30.17% debt and 69.83% equity. Tutwi- ler s cost of equity was calculated to be 13% and its cost of debt is 9%. Tutwiler s tax

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
