Firm Valuation: Free Cash Flow or Cash Flow to Equity?

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.

Just remember the boom of the dot com firms. the expression for e. Value arises from expectations. if somebody asks the owner of that project not to develop it. greater that its price. Value will never be found in accounting statements. if she pays the price listed on the price tag. Not even a dollar was earned and they sold the stocks for skyrocketed prices. earned. we present a new adjusted WACC. When this new approach is used. with this new approach losses carried forward LCF and taxes paid at a different date as accrued. They make two assumptions that differ from the traditional M & M WACC. Anyone could buy it. In this paper the relationship between firm value calculated through the FCF and the CFE is examined. 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. In particular. she will ask for a premium in order not to start the project. The problems arise because what is sold is the value that can be created in the future. First. However. 2 . TV W ACC. To solve these two practical issues. the new WACC gives consistent results. the return to levered equity does not include the factor (1-T). We call this adjusted WACC. if that machine is accompanied by a strategy. total consistency is found. based on the first assumption. However. In addition to the above -mentioned assumptions. are taken into account and we obtain consistent values. e. this WACC is defined as a function of the real tax savings TS. Several approaches to the firm value calculations are presented. And where are these expectations? They are in the future cash flows. they assume that the discount rate for the tax shield is ρ. What were they buying? Just value expectations. When valuing a firm the idea is to measure that value. Where value lies? Some people think that the value of a firm is found in the financial statements. Second. a plan and a team led by an outstanding manager.Introduction In a M & M world. the new WACC does not work if there are losses carried forward and/or the taxes are paid the following year. In fact. And this value is based on expectations of what the machine and the team could do in terms of wealth creation. 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. the return to unlevered equity. it has the capacity to create wealth and value. Unlike the traditional WACC. To understand these ideas assume that there is a box with a machine inside.

measures this future value. We will call this the MM WACC. We will examine the WACC proposed by Harris and Pringle (1985) and we call it the HP WACC. d is the cost of debt before taxes. e is calculated as e = ρ + (1-T) (ρ – d)D%/E% (2) And the discount rate for the tax shield is d. D% is the proportion of debt in total value and T is tax rate. However. at the cost of equity. this traditional formulation does not work in the finite period cash flows. e = ρ + (ρ – d)D%/E% (3) In practice we encounter losses carried forward (LCF).Discounting the free cash flow FCF. In a M & M world. 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. Unfortunately. 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. the expression for e does not include (1T). Then the correct WACC proposed by Tham & Velez (TV) is TV WACC = ρ – TS/(Total levered value) (4) 3 . based on the first assumption. Second. It is expresse d as WACC = eE% + d(1-T)D% (1) Where e is the cost of equity. If there are LCF neither of the two expressions for WACC works. these two values must be equal. This is. First. the discount rate for the tax shield is ρ. These two values are not equal. 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. E% is the proportion of equity in the total value. Some background on WACC In the literature we find the traditional presentation for WACC for discounting the FCF excluding tax savings from interest payments. current practice find that this does not happens. 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 HP WACC differs from the MM WACC in two significant ways. In the traditional presentation. This paper studies this problem.

In this paper we will show a comparison between the results obtained with the thre e versions for WACC1. prices increases and an elasticity function among others. This information is used to calculate firm value and NPV in order to compare with market values. WACC = eE% + dD% .TS/(Total levered value) (5) (6) (7) (8) This presentation is the most general way to express WACC. We recognize that many other WACC are found in the literature. 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. dividend and inventory “policies”.TS/(Total levered value) WACC = ρ . In reality.TdD% WACC = eE% + dD% . As it is invested in the firm. volume increases. inflation. the “plug” is a decision: either to borrow money or to invest it (or leave it in the bank). And this means that losses carried forward are included in the analysis. prices. accounts receivable and payable policies. P&L statements and Cash Budget or Working Cash Statement. a cash cushion 2. prices and the rest. 2000 2 It is assumed that this amount of cash is deposited in a check account that is a nonbearing interest account. From tables A12 to A16. In line 4. A Complex Model All these approaches work with a complex model. risk premium and debt ratio (accounting debt ratio)) for each year. It can be seen as a different presentation of the typical WACC formula. The inputs include initial costs. automatically it determines how much to borrow We are restricting our comparison to the traditional MM WACC. It has the feature that considers tax savings when they are in fact earned. the TS refers to the difference in the tax shield between the levered cash flows and the unlevered cash flows. equity investments.TdD/(Total levered value) WACC = eE% + dD% . 1 4 . These financial statements are all linked.This last version of WACC assumes ρ as the discount rate for the Tax savings. See Taggart 1991 and Fernandez. With these inputs we calculate interest rates (from real rates. it is expected to earn at least the WACC. In the Cash Budget you will find that when the balance is in red. In tables A1 to A7 are the inputs. The complex model has several modules (See Annex). the financial statements: Balance Sheet.

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