(Previously assumed a discount rate) Currently one firm in the industry: Financing Debt: .40 Equity: .60 Beta: 1.5 iRate: .12 Tc = .40 Mkt Risk premium = .085 Riskless iRate = .08 rB = .10 What is the appropriate discount rate for this venture for firm 2 Could use APV, FTE or WACC thus the appropriate discount rates are r0, rS, and rWACC 1. Determing Firm 1’s cost of equity Capital (rS) ( Use security market line (SML) of Chapter 10 ) Rs = RF + Beta x (RbarM - RF) = .08 + 1.5 x .085 = .2075 NOTE: RbarM = the expected return on the market portfolio RF = the risk-free rate 2. Determing Firm 1’s Hypothetical All-Equity Cost of Capital (r0) (**APV**) rS = r0 + B/S (1 – Tc) (r0 – rB) .2075 = r0 + .4/.6 (.6) (r0 - .12) r0 = .1825 At this pont … assume risk of their venture is about equal to the risk of firms in industry Thus, hypothetical discount rate of Firm 1 if all-equity financed = .1825. NOTE: This would be used if APV approach since APV uses r0 3. Determine rS (*** FTE approach ***) rS = r0 + B/S (1-Tc) x (r0 – rB) = .1825 + 1/3 (.60) x (.1825 - .10) = .199 Firm 1’s cost of equity capital (.199) < Firm 2’s (.2075) NOTE: This occutrs b/c Firm 2 has a higher debt / equity Note both firms are assumed to have the same business risk 4. Determing rWACC (***WACC approach***) rWACC = B/ S+B x rB (1-Tc) + S/ S+B x rS = 1/4 x .10 (.6) + 3/4 x .199 = .16425 NOTE: rS is determined from the beta of the firm’s stock. SEE ch. 12 … beta can easily be estimated for any publicly traded firm APV Example: *Firms generally set a target Debt / Equity ratio (Thus … use WACC and FTE) APV does not work here but is preferred when there are side benefits and side costs to debt In this example: TAX SUSIDY to debt , FLOTATION COSTS and INTEREST SUBSIDY come into play. 10MM (1) project that will last five years This implies straight –line depreciation of 2MM/yr Cash Revenue - Cash Expenses = 3.5MM Tc = .34 Risk-free rate rB = .10 Cost of unlevered Equity r0 = .20 Depreciation tax shield = Depreciation x (Tc) = 2MM x .34 = 680k (2) Rev - Expenses = Rev - Expenses x (1-Tc) = 3.5M x (.66) = 2.31M (3) Cash Flow Projections C0 C1 C2 C3 C4 C5 (1) Initial 10M (2) Dep.
