Your company has an equity cost of capital of 10%, debt cost of
capital of 6%, market capitalization of $10B, and an enterprise
value of $14B. Your company pays a corporate tax rate of 35%. Your
companymaintains a constant debt-to-equity ratio.
a)What is the (net) debt value of your company? (Hint:Net debt = D–Excess cash)
b)What is the(net)debt-to-equity ratio of your company?
c)What is the unlevered cost of capital of your company?(Hint:When a firm has a target leverageratio, its unlevered cost of capital is equal to the pretax WACC = D/(D+E) E[rD] + E/(D+E) E[rE]
d)What is WACC with taxes of your company?
Your company is considering a new project. The project costs $100M in year 0, generates free cash flows over the next three years, and becomes obsolete afterwards. The expected after-tax free cash flows from the project are summarized in the table below:
|FCF in $M||-100||50||100||70|
The new project has the same market risk as the company. Your
company will maintain the same debt-to equity ratio for the new
e) What is the unlevered value of the new project? (Hint: Do NOT include year 0 FCF in this calculation.)
f) What is the levered value of the new project? (Hint: Do NOT include year 0 FCF in this calculation.)
g) What is the total NPV of the project including the NPV of the financing?
(a) Enterprise Value = Market Capitalization + Debt - Cash = Market Capitalization + Net Debt
Enterprise Value = $ 14 B and MArket Capitalization = $ 10 B
Net Debt = Enterprise Value - Market Capitalization = 14 - 10 = $ 4 B
(b) Net Debt to Equity Ratio = Net Debt / Market Capitalization = 4 / 10 = 2/5
(c) Cost of Debt = 6 % = kd and Cost of Equity = ke = 10 %
Unlevered Cost of Capital = 6 x (2/2+5) + 10 x (5/2+5) = 8.857143 % ~ 8.86 %
(d) Tax Rate = 35 %
WACC = kd x (1-Tax Rate) x (D/D+E) + ke x (E/D+E) = 6 x (1-0.35) x (2/7) + 10 x (5/7) = 8.257143 % ~ 8.26 %
