Does Debt Policy Matter?
  • Student Presentations
  • Capital Structure Considerations
  • Modigliani and Miller – Propositions 1 and 2
  • Financial Risk and Expected Returns
  • Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)
  • After Tax WACC
capital structure
Capital Structure
  • Capital structure is mixture of debt and equity
  • Firm value is total value of debt plus equity
  • Types of equity
    • Common
    • Preferred
  • Types of debt
    • Term
    • Seniority
    • Covenants
  • Hybrids
    • Convertible bonds
modigliani and miller proposition 1
Modigliani and Miller – Proposition 1
  • Capital structure does not matter if:
    • Total cash flows do not change based on capital structure
    • Markets are perfect
      • No frictions (taxes or bankruptcy costs)
      • Corporations have no borrowing advantage
      • Investors have access to any desired investment
  • This means that if the capital markets are providing adequate investment choices, then a firm’s value is independent of the debt ratio
illustration of m m prop 1
Illustration of M&M Prop. 1

Two firms with exactly the same operating income

Investor owns 1% of each firm’s securities

Firm U is unlevered (all equity)

Firm L is levered (has issued debt)

Therefore, the value of the two firms must be equal

another illustration
Another Illustration
  • Investor owns 1% of levered firm L
  • Investor owns 1% of unlevered firm U and borrows an amount equal to 1% of the debt of the levered firm
  • Therefore, the value of the two firms must be equal
modigliani and miller s proposition i states that
Modigliani and Miller's Proposition I states that:

A) The market value of any firm is independent of its capital structure

B) The market value of a firm's debt is independent of its capital structure

C) The market value of a firm's common stock is independent of its capital structure

D) All of the above

E) None of the above

law of conservation of value
Law of Conservation of Value
  • Two streams of cash flow
    • Stream A has a present value of PV(A)
    • Stream B has a present value of PV(B)
  • Value additivity
    • The present value of the combined cash flows A+B is PV(A) + PV(B)
  • Conservation of value
    • Splitting up a cash flow into different parts does not affect the total value of the parts
the law of conservation of value implies that
The law of conservation of value implies that:

A) The value of a firm's common stock is unchanged when debt is added to its capital structure

B) The value of any asset is preserved regardless of the nature of the claims against it

C) The value of a firm's debt is unchanged when common stock is added to its capital structure

D) All of the above

E) None of the above

m m proposition 2
M&M Proposition 2

“The expected rate of return on the common stock of a levered firm increases in proportion to the debt-equity ratio (D/E), expresses in market values; the rate of increase depends on the spread between the expected return on a portfolio of all the firm’s securities and the expected return on the debt.”

  • Macbeth Spot Removers – All equity
  • Half debt (at 10% interest) and half equity
slide16

Health and Wealth Company is financed entirely by common stock which is priced to offer a 15% expected return. If the company repurchases 25% of the common stock and substitutes an equal value of debt yielding 6%, what is the expected return on the common stock after refinancing? (Ignore taxes.)

A) 12%

B) 15%

C) 18%

D) 21%

E) None of the above

mm proposition ii states that
MM Proposition II states that:

A) The expected return on equity is positively related to leverage

B) The required return on equity is a linear function of the firm's debt to equity ratio

C) The risk to equity increases with leverage

D) All of the above

E) None of the above

slide19

The beta of an all equity firm is 1.1. If the firm changes its capital structure to 1/3rd debt and 2/3rds equity using 8% debt financing, what will be the beta of the levered firm? The beta of debt is 0.3. (Assume no taxes.)

A) 1.0

B) 1.1

C) 1.5

D) 1.65

E) None of the above

practical problems with m m
Practical Problems with M&M
  • Unsatisfied clientele
    • Investors want, and will pay a premium for, securities that offer the particular financial instrument they want (risk, timing, etc.)
    • Should be a temporary phenomenon
  • Government regulation
    • Restrictions on interest rates or available investments
  • The impact of capital structure on cash flows
    • Taxation issues
    • Interest paid on corporate debt is a tax deduction
