1/1/2007 Chapter 17. Tool Kit for Capital Structure Decisions: Extensions Modigliani and Miller without Taxes Proposition I. 1. The weighted average cost of capital is independent of the firm's capital structure. 2. The WACC of a firm with debt is equal to the unlevered cost of equity. Proposition II. Example of an arbitrage opportunity in zero-growth firms: Input Data Firm U Firm L No Debt Some Debt EBIT \$900,000 \$900,000 Debt \$0 \$4,000,000 NA 7.5% 10% 10% Value of Stock \$9,000,000 \$6,000,000 Total Market Value of Firm \$9,000,000 \$10,000,000 Value of Firm = Value of Stock + Value of Debt Borrow amt. Invest \$100,000 Portfolio of U, Buy equal to 10% in risk free Debt, and risk Buy 10% of U of L's Debt asset free asset 10% of L Cost \$900,000 (\$400,000) \$100,000 \$600,000 \$600,000 Income \$90,000 (\$30,000) \$7,500 \$67,500 \$60,000 CAPITAL STRUCTURE THEORY: ARBITRAGE PROOFS OF THE MODIGLIANI-MILLER MODELS (Section 17.1) Franco Modigliani and Merton Miller developed a model to examine the impact of debt on firm value. In this first version it is assumed that taxes are zero. The cost of equity, r sL = r sU + Risk premium = r sU + (r sU -r d )(D/S) Suppose that r sL = r sU = 10%. We will show that this leads to an arbitrage opportunity. rd rs Value of Stock = (EBIT - r d D)/r S Compare an investment in L with a "synthetic" investment that duplicates L's leverage using an investment in U and borrowing on the investor's own account. Notice that for the same \$600,000 investment, you can get \$7,500 more in annual income by forming your own portfolio of U and "home made debt" than you get from an investment in L. MM argue that this won't persist--that investors would buy U and purchase the portfolio, driving up the price of U. At the same time, they would sell their shares of L, driving down its price. A
