convertible preferred WEE u39imu Bait QIQEH SEE Does Capital Structure Matter In a world with perfect and complete capital markets the value of a levered firm is the SAME AS the value of an unlevered firm MM Capital Structure is a part of a much larger value creating equation At Sears as in most companies creating shareholder value is the main governing objective There is considerable effort aimed at achieving the lowest longterm cost of capital by managing the capital structure That leads to a discussion in which we determine ourtarget capital structure I can tell you we have dug seriously into the capital structure question Alice Peterson VicePresident and Treasurer of Sears Motivation Main questions that we will address Does capital structure affect firm value ie the combined value of all of firm s securities If so how do we determine the optimal capital structure that maximizes firm value Outline of chapter Capital structure in a perfect market Modigliani Miller propositions on irrelevancy of leverage Capital structure with imperfections Text reference RWampJaffe Chapter 15 16 Modigliani amp Miller Propositions MampM propositions tell us how capital structure matters in a perfect world once we understand these we can better understand how amp why imperfections matter Some trivia Most if not all of corporate finance theory came from MM propositions Franco Modigliani and Merton Miller were both awarded the Nobel prize separately at least in part for their work on capital structure Perfect amp complete capital market Perfect capital market is one in which there are no taxes is no default ie bankruptcy risk are no agency problems ie no conflict of interest between managers shareholders and debtholders is no asymmetric information ie investors know as much as managers do Individuals have as much access to cheap debt as corporations MM Debt Irrelevance Proposition In a world with perfect and complete capital markets the value of a levered firm is the SAME AS the value of an unlevered firm Note 1 By value of firm we mean the combined value of all securities that the firm has issued Note 2 Levered firm is a firm with debt ie with Ieverage unlevered firm is a firm without debt Numerical Example I Dyson s is a chain of gourmet food stores in a world where MampM s assumptions hold Dyson s is considering issuing 50 million of debt and using the proceeds to repurchase equity The firm s current capital structure and projected cash flows every year forever are as follows Before Restructuring shares millions 2 priceshare 50 market value of equity

the risk of equity changed Homemade Leverage Ill If Dyson s does NOT restructure an investor can do it herself Say the investor owns one share already She can buy a second share b borrowing 50 riskfree at an interest rate of 8 Her return is as follows Slump Probability 20 Net cash ow 55 millions 4 Debt cash ow 55 millions 0 Equity cash ow 55 millions 4 Cash owshare 200 Earnings on 2 shares

Dyson s does not restructure investors can lever up on their own accounts to replicate the cash flows and returns that the restructuring would create The intuition behind Cash flows generated by the firm s operations do not change with its capital structure As a group holders of the firm s debt and equity own all these cash flows The overall risk and return of the firm s investors as a group do not change with the firm s capital structure The firm s cashflow pie is the same no matter how it s sliced Although the risk and return of debt and equity slices do change with capital structure investors can get the same slices riskreturn combinations on their own by adjusting their own portfolios What do we learn from the example Using homemade leverage investors can replicate returns on levered equity One crucial assumption is that investors can borrow at same rate as corporations In other words they get the same return by Investing in levered eguity and Borrowing and investing in unlevered eguity Therefore firm s choice of capital structure cannot create value for investors But how can that be Earlier we saw that if TO WACC de xRe DE DE Since ROI lt Re if you increase D and lower E shouldn t WACC decrease MM Proposition ll 1 NO because as we saw leverage increases risk to shareholders More volatile returns Debt increase EPSROE in good times ie shareholders can leverage debt to improve their returns however in bad times debt hurts In a world with perfect and complete capital markets the required return to eduitvholders ie Re increases with leverage As show on the next slide this follows from MM Proposition 1 which suggests that WACC does not change with leverage Understanding MM Proposition 2 Cost of equity Re Let Ru denote the WACC for an allequity firm ie an unlevered firm As per MM Proposition I WACC doesn t change with capital structure ie WACC RuI always Substituting Ru for WACC and rearranging equation we obtain D Re RuEXRuRd Understanding MM Proposition ll 3 Why doesn t WACC change in the MM world Rememberthe crucial assumption In the MM world there is no risk of bankruptcv As a result Rd doesn t change with leverage So as leverage increases Rd is unchanged Re increases but EV decreases Overall WACC is unchanged Note If risk of bankruptcy exists then Rd will also increase with the firm s leverage Why As a result WACC will increase We will study this in next class Cost of equity Re Understanding MM Proposition ll 4 The equation for R6 on the earlier slide implies that the cost of equity depends on the following factors Business risk or the risk arising from the nature of the firm s operating activities lt determines the firm s Ru adjustment for financial risk or the risk arising from debt in the financial structure This is the term DEgtltRu Rd Business amp financial risk in terms of Bs With no taxes u x d x e and36 u u we where Bu is the asset B unlevered B that reflects only the business risk of the firm s assets Note that 3 is unobserved Be measures risk of levered equity and 3d reflects the risk of firm s debt Leverage and 3 Since Be depends on financial risk changes in the firm s capital structure impact Be How do we compute the new Be after a change in capital structure Step 1 Unlever the 3 asset 3 Compute 3u implied by original capital structure Step 2 Relever the 3 Use the 3u from step 1 to compute the new Be Examplel A firm recently overhauled its capital structure by replacing debt with equity Before the overhaul it had 20 equity and 80 debt in its capital structure lts equity beta was 18 and its debt beta was 06 Afterthe overhaul it has 50 equity and 50 debt in its capital structure Assume zero taxes Questions What is the firm s equity beta after the change What will the firm s equity beta be if it gets rid of all its debt Answer Key to Example First compute Bu As per MM propositions in a perfect world Bu doesn t change with capital structure So we can use old capital structure to compute Bu 0 Bu So Be after change 3 DE X Bu Bd If firm gets rid of all debt Be Example ll Assume perfect world A firm has a DV ratio of 04 a cost of equity of 128 and a cost of debt of 4 Risk free rate is 4 and the market risk premium is 8 Suppose the firm s DV ratio rises to 06 firm is raising debt to repurchase stock What are the firm s old and new equity betas What is the firm s new cost of equity What are the old and new WACCs i Answer Key to Example Summary In the perfect world of MM capital structure is irrelevant ie it doesn t impact firm value Cost of debt doesn t change with leverage mainly because there is no risk of bankruptcy Cost of equity increases with leverage but WACC doesn t change because increase in cost of equity is offset by decrease in the weight attached to equity capital New concepts in this class homemade leverage distinction between levered and unlevered firms cost of equity and B
