Question

The current value of a firm is 134,900 dollars and it is 100% equity financed. The firm is considering restructuring so that it is 80% debt financed. If the firm's corporate tax rate is 0.6, the typical personal tax rate of an investor in the firm's stock is 0.6, and the typical tax rate for an investor in the firm's debt is 0.4 what will be the new value of the firm under the MM theory with corporate taxes but no possibility of bankruptcy.

Please help solve by using the formula below:

{V}+{V}*{P}*(1 - ( 1-{Tc})*(1-{Ts})/(1-{Td}) )/100 |

Answer #1

Under the MM Proposition with taxes,

Value of an all equity financed company, V is given by:

V = (1 - Personal Tax on Equity)*(1 - Corporate tax)*Value of unlevered firm

V = (1 - 0.6)*(1 - 0.6)*134,900 = $21,584

Now, Value of Levered firm, V_{d}

V_{d} = {V}+{V}*{P}*(1 - ( 1-{Tc})*(1-{Ts})/(1-{Td})
)/100

P is proportion of debt = 0.80

Tc is corporate tax

Ts is tax on stock market for investor

Td is tax on debt for investor

V_{d} = 21584 + (21584 * 0.80 * (1 - (1 - 0.6) * (1 -
0.6)/(1 - 0.4))

V_{d} = 21584 + 12662.61

V_{d} = 34,246.61 --> Answer

Which of the following correct value of leverage firm (VL) under

XYZ is a no-growth firm and its current unlevered value is
VU=$800,000, and its marginal corporate tax rate is 35%. Also, you
model the Firm's PV of financial distress as a function of its debt
ratio (D/VU) according to the relation:PV of financial
distress=800,000 x (D/V)^2. The optimal percentage of perpetual
debt (D) to the levered firm value (i.e. D/VL, the effective
debt/value-ratio), given debt proceeds are used to buy back stock,
is closest to: a) 0.25 b) 0.6 c)...
