Financial distress costs
$

Answer #1

**Answer :**

As per Modigliani and Miller proposition I with taxes -

Value of levered firm = Value of unlevered firm + Debt * tax rate

= $ 18,650,000 + $ 4,000,000 * 0.35

= $ 20,050,000

And, Market value of firm = Market price per share * number of shares + Value of debt

= $ 30 * 520,000 + 4,000,000 = $ 19,600,000

Therefore,

**Financial distress costs = $ 20,050,000 - $ 19,600,000 =
$ 450,000**

Which is the value the firm can't achieve due to financial distress or decrease in value due to expected bankruptcy costs.
