is perpetual. If it is not, then you would need to
carefully calculate the corresponding tax shields.
14 MM1 With No Taxes
To prove MM1 with no taxes, simply set TC = 0 in all of
the steps above.
The proof is identical!
You will conclude that: VU = VL (MM1 with no taxes)
You 15 The Two MM2 Propositions
MM Proposition 2 without taxes:
When TC = 0, then rS = r0 = WACC
WACC is independent of capital structure!
MM Proposition 2 with taxes:
When TC > 0, then rS = r0 + (r0-rB)(B/S)(1-TC)
More debt increases the required return on equity!
Prove MM2 with taxes (without is just a special case)
16 Proof of MM2 With Taxes
Start with MM1: VL = VU + TCB = S + B. The levered firm’s
market value balance sheet is:
B TC B S Note that for a perpetuity: r PV = C (from PV = C/r)
The expected annual cash flow from the left-hand side
of the balance sheet is: r0 VU + TC B rB
The expected annual cash flow to bondholders and
shareholders together is: rS S + rB B
17 Proof of MM2 With Taxes
Because all cash flows are paid out as dividends in our nogrowth perpetuity model, the cash flows going into the firm
equal those going to stakeholders. Hence:
r0 V U + TC B r B = r S S + r B B
But VL = S + B = VU + TC B , so VU = S + B - TC B
Plugging into previous equation and rearranging gives:
rS = r0 + (r0-rB)(B/S)(1-TC) (MM2 with taxes) 18 Proof of MM2 Without Taxes
Simply repeat the previous proof setting TC =0, and you
rS = r0 + (r0-rB)(B/S) (MM2 with no taxes) 19 Implication for Equity Risk
Assets = $10,000 ; Return on debt = 10% ; No taxes
Let ROA and Capital Structure Vary State
ROE (%) All-equity firm: S=10,000 & B=0
1500 0 5 10 15
20 Implication for Equity Risk
Levered firm (D/V=.5): S=5,000 & B=5,000
ROE (%) 0
1000 -10 0 10 20 E
30 Debt increases the sensitivity of ROE to changes in earnings.
This is the idea of financial leverage.
Financial leverage typically increases expected ROE, but also
increases the riskiness of these returns.
21 Implications of MM2 for WACC
As we on Lecture 5 (p. 12-13), plugging the formula for
MM2 into the WACC formula you get: S + B (1 − T )
S+B Increasing debt lowers WACC (see Lecture 5)
Without taxes: WACC = r0 Increasing debt does not affect WACC
