Chapter 17: Valuation and Capital Budgeting for the Levered Firm 17.1 a. The maximum price that Hertz should be willing to pay for the fleet of cars with all-equity funding is the price that makes the NPV of the transaction equal to zero. NPV = -Purchase Price + PV[(1- T C )(Earnings Before Taxes and Depreciation)] + PV(Depreciation Tax Shield) Let P equal the purchase price of the fleet. NPV = -P + (1-0.34)(\$100,000)A 5 0.10 + (0.34)(P/5)A 5 0.10 Set the NPV equal to zero. 0 = -P + (1-0.34)(\$100,000)A 5 0.10 + (0.34)(P/5)A 5 0.10 P = \$250,191.93 + (P)(0.34/5)A 5 0.10 P = \$250,191.93 + 0.2578P 0.7422P = \$250,191.93 P = \$337,095 Therefore, the most that Hertz should be willing to pay for the fleet of cars with all-equity funding is \$337,095. b. The adjusted present value (APV) of a project equals the net present value of the project if it were funded completely by equity plus the net present value of any financing side effects. In Hertz’s case, the NPV of financing side effects equals the after-tax present value of the cash flows resulting from the firm’s debt. APV = NPV(All-Equity) + NPV(Financing Side Effects) NPV(All-Equity) NPV = -Purchase Price + PV[(1- T C )(Earnings Before Taxes and Depreciation)] + PV(Depreciation Tax Shield) Hertz paid \$325,000 for the fleet of cars. Because this fleet will be fully depreciated over five years using the straight-line method, annual depreciation expense equals \$65,000 (= \$325,000/5). NPV = -\$325,000 + (1-0.34)(\$100,000)A 5 0.10 + (0.34)(\$65,000)A 5 0.10 = \$8,968 NPV(Financing Side Effects) The net present value of financing side effects equals the after-tax present value of cash flows resulting from the firm’s debt. NPV(Financing Side Effects) = Proceeds – After-Tax PV(Interest Payments) – PV(Principal Payments) Given a known level of debt, debt cash flows should be discounted at the pre-tax cost of debt (r B ), 8%. NPV(Financing Side Effects) = \$200,000 – (1 – 0.34)(0.08)(\$200,000)A 5 0.08 – [\$200,000/(1.08) 5 ] = \$21,720 B-60

APV APV = NPV(All-Equity) + NPV(Financing Side Effects) = \$8,968 + \$21,720 = \$30,688 Therefore, if Hertz uses \$200,000 of five-year, 8% debt to fund the \$325,000 purchase, the Adjusted Present Value (APV) of the project is \$30,688. 17.2 The adjusted present value of a project equals the net present value of the project under all-equity financing plus the net present value of any financing side effects. In Gemini’s case, the NPV of financing side effects equals the after-tax present value of the cash flows resulting from the firm’s debt. APV = NPV(All-Equity) + NPV(Financing Side Effects) NPV(All-Equity) NPV = -Initial Investment + PV[(1-T C )(Earnings Before Taxes and Depreciation)] + PV(Depreciation Tax Shield) Since the initial investment of \$2.1 million will be fully depreciated over three years using the straight-line method, annual depreciation expense equals \$700,000 (= \$2,100,000 / 3). NPV = -\$2,100,000 + (1-0.30)(\$900,000)A 3 0.18 + (0.30)(\$700,000)A 3 0.18 = -\$273,611 NPV(Financing Side Effects) The net present value of financing side effects equals the after-tax present value of cash flows resulting from the firm’s debt. NPV(Financing Side Effects) = Proceeds, net of flotation costs – After-Tax PV(Interest Payments) – PV(Principal Payments) + PV(Flotation Cost Tax Shield) Given a known level of debt, debt cash flows should be discounted at the pre-tax cost of debt (r B ), 12.5%.

### 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.
