22 Implications of MM2 for CAPM
SML: r0 = rF + βU(rMrF)
Assume debt beta is zero (i.e., rB = rF), and substitute into

Prop. II:
Prop.
rS = rF + βU(rMrF) + βU(rMrF)(1T)(B/S)
)(1T)(B/S)
= rF + βU[1+(1T)(B/S)](rMrF)
We also know that rS = rF + βL(rMrF)
Therefore β L = β U [1+(1T)(B/S)]
Therefore
In our previous notation, this is just βS = βA [1+(1T)(B/S)]
23 Implications of MM2 for CAPM (new 23)
From CAPM: r0 = rF + βU(rM – rF) or r0 – rF = βU(rM – rF) (1)
or
MM2 when βD = 0 (rB = rF): rS = r0 + (r0 – rF)(1 – t)B/S (2)
MM2
(1) into (2): rS = rF + βU(rM – rF) + βU(rM – rF)(1 – t)B/S
)(1
rS = rF + βU[1 + (1 – t)B/S](rM – rF) (3) From CAPM: rS = rF + βL(rM – rF)
From (4). Plug (4) into (3): rF + βL(rM – rF) = rF + βU[1 + (1 – t)B/S](rM – rF)
Thus, βL = βU[1 + (1 – t)B/S]
Thus,
In our previous notation, this is βS = βA[1 + 24 – t)B/S]
