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. Input Data Firm U Firm L No Debt Some Debt EBIT \$500,000 \$500,000 Debt \$0 \$3,000,000 NA 6.0% 8% 8% Tax rate 0% 0% Value of Stock \$6,250,000 \$4,000,000 Total Market Value of Firm \$6,250,000 \$7,000,000 Value of Firm = Value of Stock + Value of Debt Buy Borrow amt. Invest extra Portfolio of U, Old 10% of equal to 10% \$75,000 in risk Debt, and risk Investment, U's Stock of L's Debt free asset @ 6% free asset 10% of L Cost \$625,000 (\$300,000) \$75,000 \$400,000 \$400,000 Income \$50,000 (\$18,000) \$4,500 \$36,500 \$32,000 The cost of equity, r sL , is found as follows: rsL= r sU + Risk premium = r sU + (r sU -r d )(D/S) Supposethe costs of equity for Firms U and L are as follows: r sL = r sU = 8%. k d k s Value of Stock = (EBIT - r d D)/r S Now compare an investment in L with a derivative investment which duplicates L's leverage by borrowing and buying U's stock. Assume that the investor owns 10% of L's Stock which is sold for \$400,000 . Notice that for the same \$400,000 investment, you can get \$4,500 more in annual income from a portfolio of U and "homemade debt" than from an investment in L. MM argue that this can't persist--that investors will sell L and buy U to form the portfolio, driving the price of L down and U up, until the arbitrage opportunity vanishes.
