  • Flow to equity approach
  • WACC method

adjusted present value 

  • Value of levered firm (APV) is value of project to an unlevered firm (NPV) + net present value of financing side effects (NPVF) à APV = NPV + NPVF
  • Side effects summarized by NPVF 
    • Tax subsidy to debt
    • Costs of financing distress
    • Costs of issuing new securities 
    • Subsidies to debt financing 
  • With a negative NCP, and all equity firm would reject the project 
  • But the NPV of the project under leverage = adjusted present value (APV) 
    • Positive APV: a levered firm can accept the project
    • Using debt enables saving taxes

flow to equity 

  • FTE is alternative capital budgeting approach 
  • Formula: cash flow from project to equity-holders of levered firm ÷ cost of equity capital (Rs) 
  • Steps
  1. Calculated levered cash flow (LCF): cash inflows – cash costs – interest (= income after interest) – corporate tax 
  2. Calculate Rs
  3. Valuation of levered cash flow: NPC is difference between present value of LFC and investment not borrowed

weighted average cost of capital 

  • Project of levered firms are concurrently financed with both equity and debt 
  • Cost of capital = weighted average of cost of equity and cost of debt with corporate taxes included
