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.

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

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

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

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

The reason the present value with the HP WACC is higher is because the difference in tax savings due to the LCF. with the HP WACC. This means a lower WACC. When calc ulating the Adjusted Present Value APV. with the HP WACC.7.2.4. there differences. where we assume that there are no losses and taxes are paid the same year. there is a difference of 1.1. The present value of the FCF at the TV WACC (total market value) is $47. with the HP WACC.3.225. 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.505. with the traditional MM WACC.3. 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. The reason the present value with the HP WACC is higher is because the difference in tax savings due to the LCF. the present value is $48.312. This means a lower WACC. However.4. the present value is $48.291. The present value of the FCF at the TV WACC (total market value) is $47. When calculating the Adjusted Present Value APV. when the market equity value is calculated from the CFE at e.439. there is a difference of 376. There are also differences when calculating the market equity value. for the same reason.9.4.8. However. there is no difference. the losses are carried forward and taxes are paid the same year.250.The results for the first case are summarized in Table 1 Panels A and B. when the market equity value is calculated from the CFE at e. With the traditional MM WACC. The differences are the same when calculated as Total value less debt.9. for the same reason.996.9.5.3. lower than ρ. 6 . The present value of the FCF at the TV WACC (total market value) is $47. which is higher than the previous value by 1. the present value is $32.176. When calculating the Adjusted Present Value APV. the present value is $47.9. The present value of the FCF at the TV WACC (total market value) is $47. which is higher than the previous value by 1. Another reason is the difference in tax savings due to the LCF. which is higher than the previous value by 933. which is higher than the previous value by 2.505.3. where we assume that there are losses. The reason the present value with the MM WACC is higher is because the discount rate for the tax shield is d. with the traditional MM WACC. for the same reasons. There are also differences when calculating the market equity value. When calculating the Adjusted Present Value APV.176.1. The differences are the same when calculated as Total value less debt.275.765. The results for the second case are summarized in Table 2 Panels A and B.066.316. there is a difference of 253.8. which is higher than the previous value by 115. the present value is the same. the present value is $33. The present value of CFE at e under TV WACC assumptions is 31.

9. 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. With the traditional MM WACC. with the HP WACC. the present value is the same.there differences.395.8. the present val ue is $32. 7 .
