(1) Sustainable growth rate=retention ratio*ROE=PRAT (P: Profit margin, R:
retention ratio=retained E/E; A: Asset turnover ratio=sales/asset; T:
Asset/beginning of the period equity)
(2) Compounding an investment m times a year for T years provides for future
value of wealth: FV=C0*(1+r/m)^(m*T)
(3) Future value of an investment compounded continuously over many
periods: FV=C0*e^(r*T) e=2.718
(4) Perpetuity: PV=C/r; Growing Perpetuity: PV=C/(r-g) g=growth rate;
Annuity: PV=C/r*[1-1/(1+r)^T];
Growing Annuity: PV=C/(r-g) *
{1-[(1+g)/(1+r)]^T}
(5) Bonds: Level-coupon bonds(定息债券): PV= C/r*[1-1/(1+r)^T]+F/(1+r)^T
C=Coupon payment per period, F=Face value, T=Time to maturity. Pure
Discount Bonds(零息债券): PV=F/(1+r)^T
(6) Stocks: Zero growth: P0=Div/r

...rates of earnings or g = (1-payout)(return on equity)
-Firm has target capital structure, defined as mix of debt, preferred stock, and common equity that minimizes WACC
-Project Stand-alone Risk: risk the project would have if it were the firm’s only asset
-Corporate or within-firm risk reflects effect of project on firm’s risk, measured by project’s effect on firm’s earnings variability
-Market or Beta risk reflects effects of project on stockholders’ risk, measured by project’s effect on firm’s beta coefficient
-Risk-adjusted cost of capital is cost of capital appropriate for given project, given its risk. Greater the risk, higher the cost of capital
Chapter 11
-Corporate assets: include operating, financial, and non-operating
-Operating Assets: assets in place and growth options
-Non-operating assets include financial assets such as investments in marketable securities and non-controlling interests in stock of other companies
-Value of operations is present value of all future free cash flows when discounted at WACC
-Horizon Value: value of operations at end of explicit forecast period (terminal value), equal to present value of all free cash flows beyond forecast period, discounted at WACC
-Corporate valuation model: value of company = value of operations + value of non operating assets
-Intrinsic value of equity: total value of company minus value of debt + preferred stock; intrinsic price per share is value of...

Valuing Cash Flows
Exercise 1 (Ex. 11.2 - 11.6 GT): Assume that Marriott’s restaurant division has the following joint distribution with the market return: Market Scenario Bad Good Great .25 .50 .25 Probability Market Return (%) -15 5 25 YR 1. Cash Flow Forecast $40 million $50 million $60 million
Assume also that the CAPM holds. 11.2 Compute the expected year 1 restaurant cash ﬂow for Marriott. 11.3 Find the covariance of the cash ﬂow with the market return and its cash ﬂow beta. 11.4 Assuming that historical data suggests that the market risk premium is 8.4 percent per year and the market standard deviation is 40 percent per year, ﬁnd the certainty equivalent of the year 1 cash ﬂow. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using such historical data for market inputs as opposed to inputs from a set of scenarios, like those given in the table above exercise 11.2? 11.5 Discount your answer in exercise 11.4 at a risk-free rate of 4 percent per year to obtain the present value. 11.6 Explain why the answer to exercise 11.5 diﬀers from the answer in Example 11.2.

* βA = D/(D+E) βD + E/(D+E) βE, where D & E are Market Values of Debt & Equity
* E = Price/Share * # Shares
* D = Market Value of outstanding Debt
* βE = βA + D/E (βA – βD)
* If firm is unlevered (D=0), βE = βA. If little chance of default then βD = 0 and βA = βE E/(D+E)
* Use the risk measure associated with the project you are investing in – not necessarily the risk measure for your firm
* VL = VU + PV (Tax Benefits) + Corporate Benefits (Debt) – Costs of Financial Distress
* VL is the value of the firm with leverage, VU is the value of the all-equity firm
* 2 methods used to incorporate tax benefits to previous valuation techniques: APV & WACC
* APV (Adjusted Present Value – adjusts for tax by increasing the cash flows due to the tax benefit
* Increase each annual CF by Debt capacity * Debt Rate * Corporate Tax Rate = ITS (Interest Tax Shield)
* Step: Plug into CAPM to get Discount Rate Ra = Treasury + 6*Asset Beta if current
* WACC (Weighted Average Cost of Capital) – adjusts for taxes by decreasing the discount rate

The company estimates that the EBITDA from the sale of purple trousers will be 12 million Euros per year for the coming 5 years. The company’s earnings are subject to a corporate tax rate of 40%. If the ﬁrm’s equity cost of capital is 9.6% what is the NPV of this project? (a) 0.48 million Euros (b) 0.72million Euros (c) 0.26 million Euros (d) 0.92 million Euros Instead of selling the machines after ﬁve years, the company can use them to produce grey trousers starting in year 6. If they do so, using these machines the company will generate free cash ﬂows of 2 million Euros per year in perpetuity, since grey trousers are classics and never go out of fashion. What is the NPV of the project if the company chooses this option?

The company can ﬁnance the purchase of new sewing machines entirely by debt by issuing 5-year bonds with 6% coupon rate sold at par.
