Abstract In a M & M world, the equity value is the present value of the Free Cash Flow FCF at the Weighted Average Cost of Capital WACC minus debt and it should be identical to the present value of the CFE (cash flow to equity) discounted at the cost of equity capital, e. In this paper the relationship between firm value calculated through the FCF and the CFE is examined. Several approaches to the firm value calculations are presented. We present a complex model where we compare the results obtained with the traditional M&M WACC found in the literature with the WACC approach presented by Harris and Pringle 1985. They make two assumpt ions that differ from the traditional M & M WACC. First, they assume that the discount rate for the tax shield is ρ, the return to unlevered equity. Second, based on the first assumption, the expression for e, the return to levered equity does not include the factor (1-T). Unlike the traditional WACC, the new WACC gives consistent results. However, the new WACC does not work if there are losses carried forward and/or the taxes are paid the following year. To solve these two practical issues, we present a ne w adjusted WACC. We call this adjusted WACC, TV WACC. In addition to the above-mentioned assumptions, this WACC is defined as a function of the real tax savings TS, earned. When this new approach is used, total consistency is found. In particular, with thi s new approach losses carried forward LCF and taxes paid at a different date as accrued, are taken into account and we obtain consistent values.

When valuing a firm the idea is to measure that value. greater that its price. Where value lies? Some people think that the value of a firm is found in the financial statements. When this new approach is used. The problems arise because what is sold is the value that can be created in the future. the expression for e. And where are these expectations? They are in the future cash flows. Several approaches to the firm value calculations are presented. In this paper the relationship between firm value calculated through the FCF and the CFE is examined. They make two assumptions that differ from the traditional M & M WACC. the new WACC does not work if there are losses carried forward and/or the taxes are paid the following year.Introduction In a M & M world. We present a complex model where we compare the results obtained with the traditional M&M WACC found in the literature with the WACC approach presented by Harris and Pringle 1985. Value arises from expectations. And this value is based on expectations of what the machine and the team could do in terms of wealth creation. the return to levered equity does not include the factor (1-T). e. TV W ACC. Not even a dollar was earned and they sold the stocks for skyrocketed prices. However. if somebody asks the owner of that project not to develop it. the return to unlevered equity. with this new approach losses carried forward LCF and taxes paid at a different date as accrued. Value will never be found in accounting statements. she will ask for a premium in order not to start the project. What were they buying? Just value expectations. the new WACC gives consistent results. we present a new adjusted WACC. Second. In fact. based on the first assumption. it has the capacity to create wealth and value. To solve these two practical issues. if that machine is accompanied by a strategy. In particular. Just remember the boom of the dot com firms.

the discount rate for the tax shield is ρ. E% is the proportion of equity in the total value. However. measures this future value. based on the first assumption. If there are LCF neither of the two expressions for WACC works. This is. D% is the proportion of debt in total value and T is tax rate. the expression for e does not include (1T). This paper studies this problem. The problem lies in what is the correct discount rate to be used to discount the cash flows. for the firm at the Weighted Average Cost of Capital and subtracting the debt or discounting the cash flow to equity holders CFE. This WACC assumes that there are no losses and there are no losses carried forward (LCF) and taxes are paid the same year as accrued. It is expresse d as WACC = eE% + d(1-T)D% (1) Where e is the cost of equity. In the traditional presentation. We will examine the WACC proposed by Harris and Pringle (1985) and we call it the HP WACC. e = ρ + (ρ – d)D%/E% (3) In practice we encounter losses carried forward (LCF). These two values are not equal. Some background on WACC In the literature we find the traditional presentation for WACC for discounting the FCF excluding tax savings from interest payments. We will call this the MM WACC. First. We assume that there are no losses and there are no losses carried forward (LCF) and taxes are paid the same year as accr ued. current practice find that this does not happens. Then the correct WACC proposed by Tham & Velez (TV) is TV WACC = ρ – TS/(Total levered value) (4) 3 . We will show how using different approaches we arrive at different figures and we will show approaches that produce consistent results and those that do not. these two values must be equal. Second. In a M & M world. at the cost of equity. This HP WACC differs from the MM WACC in two significant ways. e is calculated as e = ρ + (1-T) (ρ – d)D%/E% (2) And the discount rate for the tax shield is d.Discounting the free cash flow FCF. d is the cost of debt before taxes. Unfortunately. this traditional formulation does not work in the finite period cash flows.

In line 4. A Complex Model All these approaches work with a complex model. With these inputs we calculate interest rates (from real rates. These financial statements are all linked.TS/(Total levered value) WACC = ρ . We recognize that many other WACC are found in the literature. inflation. In tables A1 to A7 are the inputs. As it is invested in the firm. risk premium and debt ratio (accounting debt ratio)) for each year. It has the feature that considers tax savings when they are in fact earned.TdD% WACC = eE% + dD% . a cash cushion 2.TS/(Total levered value) (5) (6) (7) (8) This presentation is the most general way to express WACC. prices increases and an elasticity function among others. volume increases. the financial statements: Balance Sheet. WACC = eE% + dD% . the TS refers to the difference in the tax shield between the levered cash flows and the unlevered cash flows. There is not what some authors call “plugs” (an account where any difference between total assets and liabilities plus equity are included in order the Balance Sheet checks). Tables A8 to A11 present the forecasts of every variable including units sold. the “plug” is a decision: either to borrow money or to invest it (or leave it in the bank). prices.TdD/(Total levered value) WACC = eE% + dD% . dividend and inventory “policies”. It can be seen as a different presentation of the typical WACC formula. This information is used to calculate firm value and NPV in order to compare with market values. it is expected to earn at least the WACC. automatically it determines how much to borrow We are restricting our comparison to the traditional MM WACC. P&L statements and Cash Budget or Working Cash Statement. See Taggart 1991 and Fernandez.This last version of WACC assumes ρ as the discount rate for the Tax savings. 2000 2 It is assumed that this amount of cash is deposited in a check account that is a nonbearing interest account. accounts receivable and payable policies. In this paper we will show a comparison between the results obtained with the thre e versions for WACC1. The complex model has several modules (See Annex). From tables A12 to A16. prices and the rest. In the Cash Budget you will find that when the balance is in red. equity investments. 1 4 . In reality. And this means that losses carried forward are included in the analysis. The inputs include initial costs.

Another features of the model are the presence of an elasticity factor that relates price increase and demand. We present the value calculations for the three WACC approaches presented above. the analysis with WACC is inconsistent. unless you use d(1-T) as the cost of debt after taxes. The possibility to consider inventory. Table 17 shows the expected WACC and growth beyond year 4. In the cash budget the dividends paid are included. In all cases it is assumed that taxes are paid at the same year as accrued. To reinvest cash surpluses. accounts receivable and payable policies. In this model there exists some options: 1. PV(FCF) = PV(CFE) + PV(CFD) does not hold. When Adjusted WACC is used. 5 . CFD and the CFE. etc. when there are losses) and losses carried forward. cash cushion. When tax savings are not earned (for instance. It doesn't matches if the cost of debt after taxes is calculated from CFD after taxes or if taxes are paid next year. To make inflation adjustments 2. Not all the options are used in the example presented in the Annex. In the complex model. the calculations of firm value and the different WACC’s are done when there are losses and LCF and when there are no losses. payout ratios. As can be observed. All this means that it is not necessary to consider changes in working capital as with other methods. To pay taxes the same year as accrued or not. Tables A18 and A19 present the cash flow construction. This is quite important because this means that tax savings are earned when taxes are paid. is included. dividends and tax savings. consistency is obtained.taking into account the cash cushion. The FCF. interest paid. A very important feature is the losses carried forward LCF. The cost of debt after taxes is calculated as the IRR for the CFD. equity from stockholders. the WACC and firm value. These inconsistencies are solved using the Adjusted WACC or TV WACC = ρ – TSt /(Total value at t-1). 3. It is calculated just as it is expected it will be in the Cash Budget. These calculations are done fixing ρ for year 0. With this information. the FCF is constructed from the Cash Budget balance and deduct all the items related with the financing: loans received and paid. we calculate in the last part. Tables A20 to A33. These options are handled with a dummy variable.

there is a difference of 376. This means a lower WACC.3. with the HP WACC.275. The differences are the same when calculated as Total value less debt. there is no difference.3. The reasons for this difference are the lower value for e (due to the (1-T) factor) and the difference in tax savings due to the LCF. which is higher than the previous value by 2. for the same reason. when the market equity value is calculated from the CFE at e. However.4. the losses are carried forward and taxes are paid the same year. The differences are the same when calculated as Total value less debt.2. the present value is $48. there is a difference of 1.9. The reason the present value with the MM WACC is higher is because the discount rate for the tax shield is d. which is higher than the previous value by 933.The results for the first case are summarized in Table 1 Panels A and B.

The present value of CFE at e under TV WACC assumptions is 31.250. which is higher than the previous value by 115.9.505.312.3.7. the present value is $48. where we assume that there are no losses and taxes are paid the same year. the present value is $33. for the same reason. The reason the present value with the HP WACC is higher is because the difference in tax savings due to the LCF.1. This means a lower WACC. there is a difference of 253. The present value of the FCF at the TV WACC (total market value) is $47. There are also differences when calculating the market equity value. The present value of the FCF at the TV WACC (total market value) is $47.8. The reason the present value with the MM WACC is higher is because the discount rate for the tax shield is d lower than ρ. However. where we assume that there are losses. which is higher than the previous value by 1.4. which is higher than the previous value by 1. when the market equity value is calculated from the CFE at e. There are also differences when calculating the market equity value.4. the present value is $47. the present value is the same. The present value of the FCF at the TV WACC (total market value) is $47.176. With the traditional MM WACC. with the HP WACC.3.505.225. there differences.1.9. The results for the second case are summarized in Table 2 Panels A and B.5. The reason the present value with the HP WACC is higher is because the difference in tax savings due to the LCF. for the same reasons. the present value is $32.996. with the HP WACC. When calculating the Adjusted Present Value APV.

with the HP WACC. which is higher than the previous value by 933.395. the present val ue is $32. The present value of CFE at e under TV WACC assumptions is 31. With the traditional MM WACC. The reasons for this difference are the lower value for e (due to the (1-T) factor) and the difference in tax savings due to the LCF.8.329. the present value is the same. 7 .there differences.9.9.
