Capital Structure

  • A company can obtain long-term financing in the form of equity, debt or a combination of both.

  • Capital structure is the proportion of debt and preference and equity shares on a firm’s balance sheet.

Capital Structure

  • Optimal Capital structure is the capital is the capital structure at which the weighted average cost of capital is minimum and thereby maximum value of the firm.

Capital Structure

  • The relative proportions of debt, equity and other securities that a firm has outstanding constitute its capital structure.

  • When corporations raise funds from outside investors, they must choose which type of security issue.

Capital Structure

  • The most common choices are financing through equity alone and financing through a combination of debt and equity.

  • So V = B + S = D + E

Capital Structure

  • Shareholders are interested in maximizing the value of the firm’s shares.

  • A key question is: What is the ratio of debt to equity, if any, that maximizes the shareholder’s value?

Capital Structure

  • As it turns out, changes in capital structure benefit shareholders if and only if the value of the firm increases.

  • So we concern ourselves with the question of which proportion of debt versus equity maximizes the overall value of the firm.

Capital Structure

  • We assume perfect capital markets in the following analysis:

    • Perfect competition

    • Equal access to information

    • No transaction costs

    • No taxes (later we drop this assumption)

  • We also assume that the individual can borrow at the same rate as the firm.

Example capital structure l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • We will compare a firm whose capital structure is all equity, with a firm that is identical, except that it has some debt in its capital structure.

Example capital structure11 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • Suppose a firm has 1000 shares, a share price of $10, a market value of $10,000, and operating income as described in the table below.

  • This income is a perpetuity, and all earnings are paid out as a dividend to investors. Expected income is $1500 and expected return is 15%.

Example capital structure13 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • Suppose the firm borrows $5,000 at 10% rate of interest and buys back 500 of its shares to create the following new situation: # shares 500, B = $5000, S = $5000, shares value: $10, annual interest: $500

Example capital structure15 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • Argument that value has increased: If operating income is greater than $1,000 then the expected Return On Equity increases.

  • Since we expect operating income of $1,500, leverage must have added value. Shareholders expect 20% ROE with leverage.

Example capital structure16 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • Counter-argument: Suppose an investor takes $10 of his/her own money and borrows $10 at 10% interest and invests the $20 to buy 2 shares of the unlevered firm.

Example capital structure18 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • Note: Investor gets the same result from borrowing personally as he/she gets from investing in the leveraged firm.

  • Therefore, the firm is not doing anything by leveraging that the investor could not do on his/her own.

  • This implies VL = VU. This is the famous Modigliani-Miller Proposition I.

www.HelpWithAssignment.com


Example capital structure19 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • So leverage increases the expected earnings per share, but not the share price. How can that be?

www.HelpWithAssignment.com


Example capital structure20 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • Leverage also increases the riskiness of the earnings. We must discount those higher expected earnings at a higher discount rate.

  • All equity: 1.50/.15 = $10

  • Leveraged: 2.00/.20 = $10

  • Recall: The value of a firm = the PV of the future cash flows.

www.HelpWithAssignment.com


Example capital structure21 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • If the firm is all equity financed, then VU = C1/(1+r0) + C2/(1+r0)2 + … where r0 is the cost of capital of an all equity financed firm.

  • If there is some debt in the capital structure, the cost of capital is given by:

www.HelpWithAssignment.com


Example capital structure22 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • r = [B/(B+S)]rB + [S/(B+S)]rS where rS is the cost of equity capital of the now leveraged firm.

  • and VL = C1/(1+r) + C2/(1+r)2 + ...

www.HelpWithAssignment.com


Example capital structure23 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • Since the value of the company doesn’t change with leverage, VL = VU, and so r must equal r0 – that is, r must be constant as debt is added to the capital structure (remember here we are assuming no taxes etc.).

www.HelpWithAssignment.com


Example capital structure24 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • The idea is that as “expensive” equity is replaced with “cheap” debt, the risk to equity increases, as a result of the increased leverage, and so rS increases.

  • The increase in rS just balances against the increased fraction of cheaper debt, so that r stays constant.

www.HelpWithAssignment.com


Example capital structure25 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • r0 = cost of capital for the all equity firm = ra = required/expected return on the assets – reflects business risk – not financial leverage. If we solve:

  • r0 = [B/(B+S)]rB + [S/(B+S)]rS for rS, we get rS = r0 +[B/S](r0 – rB)

www.HelpWithAssignment.com


Example capital structure26 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • This is Modigliani-Miller Proposition II.

  • In our example above, ra = 1500/10,000 = 15%. If B = S = 5000, then:

  • rS = 15% + [5000/5000](15% - 10%) = 20%

  • Initially the firm was all equity, had 1,000 shares at $10/share and equity worth $10,000

  • V = 1500/.15 = (CF/rS) = $10,000

www.HelpWithAssignment.com


Example capital structure27 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • With $5,000 debt at 10% and $5,000 equity, now rS = 20%, up from 15% and:

  • V = 500/.10 + 1000/.20 = interest payment/rB + CF/rS = 5,000 + 5,000 = 10,000

www.HelpWithAssignment.com


Example capital structure28 l.jpg

Example: Capital Structure

  • Essentially, we split a single cash flow of 1500/year, discounted at 15% into 2 cash flows of 500 and 1000, the former discounted at 10% and the latter discounted at 20%
