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.

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

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. In a M & M world.Discounting the free cash flow FCF. current practice find that this does not happens. E% is the proportion of equity in the total value. measures this future value. In the traditional presentation. for the firm at the Weighted Average Cost of Capital and subtracting the debt or discounting the cash flow to equity holders CFE. D% is the proportion of debt in total value and T is tax rate. We will examine the WACC proposed by Harris and Pringle (1985) and we call it the HP WACC. 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. We will call this the MM WACC. Some background on WACC In the literature we find the traditional presentation for WACC for discounting the FCF excluding tax savings from interest payments. First. However. 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. based on the first assumption. the expression for e does not include (1T). The problem lies in what is the correct discount rate to be used to discount the cash flows. e = ρ + (ρ – d)D%/E% (3) In practice we encounter losses carried forward (LCF). e is calculated as e = ρ + (1-T) (ρ – d)D%/E% (2) And the discount rate for the tax shield is d. These two values are not equal. This is. Second. the discount rate for the tax shield is ρ. This paper studies this problem. This HP WACC differs from the MM WACC in two significant ways. Unfortunately. 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. Then the correct WACC proposed by Tham & Velez (TV) is TV WACC = ρ – TS/(Total levered value) (4) 3 . d is the cost of debt before taxes. this traditional formulation does not work in the finite period cash flows. at the cost of equity.

automatically it determines how much to borrow We are restricting our comparison to the traditional MM WACC. the TS refers to the difference in the tax shield between the levered cash flows and the unlevered cash flows. See Taggart 1991 and Fernandez. prices increases and an elasticity function among others. it is expected to earn at least the WACC.TdD/(Total levered value) WACC = eE% + dD% . The inputs include initial costs. 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). In reality. In line 4.This last version of WACC assumes ρ as the discount rate for the Tax savings. P&L statements and Cash Budget or Working Cash Statement. These financial statements are all linked. prices and the rest. From tables A12 to A16. the financial statements: Balance Sheet. dividend and inventory “policies”. In the Cash Budget you will find that when the balance is in red. A Complex Model All these approaches work with a complex model. We recognize that many other WACC are found in the literature. equity investments. 1 4 . the “plug” is a decision: either to borrow money or to invest it (or leave it in the bank). risk premium and debt ratio (accounting debt ratio)) for each year. prices. The complex model has several modules (See Annex). It can be seen as a different presentation of the typical WACC formula.TdD% WACC = eE% + dD% .TS/(Total levered value) WACC = ρ .TS/(Total levered value) (5) (6) (7) (8) This presentation is the most general way to express WACC. accounts receivable and payable policies. With these inputs we calculate interest rates (from real rates. a cash cushion 2. inflation. Tables A8 to A11 present the forecasts of every variable including units sold. volume increases. As it is invested in the firm. In tables A1 to A7 are the inputs. This information is used to calculate firm value and NPV in order to compare with market values. 2000 2 It is assumed that this amount of cash is deposited in a check account that is a nonbearing interest account. It has the feature that considers tax savings when they are in fact earned. And this means that losses carried forward are included in the analysis. In this paper we will show a comparison between the results obtained with the thre e versions for WACC1. WACC = eE% + dD% .

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

However.9.176.439. 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.9.8. the present value is $47.4.316. There are also differences when calculating the market equity value.3.3.996. There are also differences when calculating the market equity value.8. The reason the present value with the HP WACC is higher is because the difference in tax savings due to the LCF. The results for the second case are summarized in Table 2 Panels A and B.5.250. Another reason is the difference in tax savings due to the LCF. which is higher than the previous value by 1.4. the present value is the same. there is a difference of 376.275.176. The differences are the same when calculated as Total value less debt. When calculating the Adjusted Present Value APV. The reason the present value with the MM WACC is higher is because the discount rate for the tax shield is d. for the same reasons. 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. This means a lower WACC. When calculating the Adjusted Present Value APV. which is higher than the previous value by 2. This means a lower WACC. With the traditional MM WACC.765.505. the present value is $48. the present value is $32.
