Find the value of levered equity for this firm.
Assume the firm has perpetual cash flows. Use Miller & Modigiiani's Proposition II concerning the
cost of equity.
You have the following information about the firm:
EBIT = \$100 million
Tax rate - 35%
Debt = \$150 million
Cost of debt = 8%
Unlevered cost of capital = 12%

Value of Unlevered Firm = EBIT * (1 - Tax Rate) / Unlevered Cost of Capital
Value of Unlevered Firm = \$100.00 million * (1 - 0.35) / 0.12
Value of Unlevered Firm = \$100.00 million * 0.65 / 0.12
Value of Unlevered Firm = \$541.67 million

Value of Levered Firm = Value of Unlevered Firm + Tax Rate * Value of Debt
Value of Levered Firm = \$541.67 million + 0.35 * \$150.00 million
Value of Levered Firm = \$541.67 million + \$52.50 million
Value of Levered Firm = \$594.17 million

Value of Levered Equity = Value of Levered Firm - Value of Debt
Value of Levered Equity = \$594.17 million - \$150.00 million
Value of Levered Equity = \$444.17 million
