Can you modify EBITDA to be better?

Q C.10 Compare two equal underlying ļ¬rms (projects). One, however, is levered. Which one has the higher P/E ratio?

Do you have to assume a risk-averse world, or will your analysis also hold just the same in a risk-neutral world?

Q C.11 If you believe that the underlying growth rate of GDP of 5% nominal (2.0% real) is also applicable to the

earnings of ļ¬rms in the stock market forever, and if the P/E ratio of the stock market is 20 (as it is in December 2004),

then what do you expect to be an appropriate expected rate of return on the stock market?

Q C.12 If the interest rate is 12% per annum, what is the rental equivalent of a machine that costs $50,000 upfront,

$2,000 per year in maintenance, and lasts for 10 years?

Solutions and Exercises

a. Q&A: Answers

1.

(a) No Taxes. No opinion/information diļ¬erences. No Transaction costs. No big buyers/sellers.

(b) Project value is ambiguous because it depends on ownerā™s wealth.

2.

(a) The annual interest rate is 1.001252 ā’ 1 = 6.43%. This comes to a 5-year rate of return of 36.5%. The

$200 would grow to $273.18.

(b) Still $200.

(c) Your interest rate is now 5.144%, because you have to pay taxes every year. Over 5 years, you will have

1.051445 ā’ 1 = 28.5% rate of return, or $257.01. The inļ¬‚ation rate is 2.6% inļ¬‚ation per year. In real

terms, you will end up with $226.06 in 5 years. [rounding error may lead you to a number oļ¬ by a dollar

or so.]

3. (1 + r )9 = (1 + 100%) ā’ r = 31/9 ā’ 1 = 12.98%. Check: 1.12989 ā 3.

4.

(a) ā ā

3

r2 = 1.25 ā’ 1 = 11.80%, r3 = 1.40 ā’ 1 = 11.87%

(b)

f1,2 = 1.25/1.1 ā’ 1 = 13.64%, f2,3 = 1.4/1.25 ā’ 1 = 12.00%

5. This project has no IRR!

C 1

6. Annuity: $500, 000 = 1ā’ ā’ C = $3, 668.82.

(1 + 8%/12)30Ā·12

8%/12

7.

(a) The expected project payoļ¬ is $124. At a price of $100, this is an expected 24% rate of return. In a

risk-neutral world, this will be the expected rate of return for all projects. The bank must expect to

receive $20 Ā· 1.24 = $24.8. With 40% probability, the bank will get $10 million, with 60% probability it

will get what it was promised. The promise must therefore be $34.667 million. This represents a 73.33%

promised rate of return.

(b) The project payoļ¬ is still the same. The bank will receive $30 million [50% rate of return] with 60%

probability, $10 million with 40% probability. This gives the bank an expected payoļ¬ of $22 millionā”or

an expected rate of return of 10%. The project is ļ¬nanced by 20% debt, so to keep the project expected

rate of return at 24%, it must be that

20% Ā· 10% + 80% Ā· x = 24% x = 27.5%

So, you demand an unconditional expected rate of return of 27.5%.

8. Cash Flows: $100. $300-$0=$300. $500-(-$50)=$550. $0-(-$50)=$50.

9.

(a) The ļ¬nancier considers interest to be a distribution to investors, while the accountant considers it a

cost.

(b) Because it has absolutely no adjustment for capital expenditures. EBIT has at least an amortized version

therein. The alternative is to work with EBITDA - capexp.

10. Unlevered has higher P/E. See classnotes. You need risk-aversion, or else the P/E ratio will be the same.

11.

P /E = 1/(r ā’ g) ā’ 20 = 1/(r ā’ 5%) r = 10%

12. The 10 years of maintenance are the equivalent of

$2, 000 1

Ā· 1ā’ = $11, 300.4

1.1210

0.12

Add to this the cost of $50,000, and you have a total cost of $61,300. This comes to a rental equivalent of

x 1

Ā· 1ā’ = $61, 300 ā’ x = $10, 849

13.

(a) No Taxes. No opinion/information diļ¬erences. No Transaction costs. No big buyers/sellers.

(b) Project value is ambiguous because it depends on ownerā™s wealth.

14.

(a) T-bond: mean 5%, sd 0%. Market: 10%, 12.25%. A: 25%. 46.01%

(b) Returns are (ā“6%,7%,38%). So, the mean is 13%, the standard deviation is 18.5%.

(c) Cov(ĖA , rM ) = 500%. Correlation(ĖA , rM ) = 88.8%

rĖ rĖ

(d) Cov(ĖA , rM )/V (ĖM )= 500/12.252 = 3.33.

rĖ ar r

(e) The CAPM prescribes 5% + 5% Ā· 3.33 = 21.65%. The actual rate of return is 25%. Therefore, the price of

A is too lowā”it is underpriced.

(f) You need the certainty equivalence formula here. E (ĖB ) = $5, 600. Cov(ĖB , rM ) = $710 .

r rĖ

V (ĖM ) = 150%% = 0.015. E (ĖM ) ā’ rF = 5%. lambda= 3.33 .

ar r r

So, the value is

$5, 600 $710

Value(P ) = ā’ 3.3 Ā· = $5, 333 ā’ $2, 253 = $3, 080

1 + 5% 1 + 5%

(g) This translates into rates of return of ā“74%, -68%, and +287%.

ā

15. 20/ 12 ā 5.8%

16. A zero upfront investment, with no possibility of a cash outļ¬‚ow, and occasionally positive cash ļ¬‚ows. A

great bet may have a negative in the future, e.g., ā’$5 in one state of the world, +$100, 000 in another state

of the world.

17. Rely on and learn from your own market prices. Rely on and learn from your competitorsā™ market prices.

Rely on and learn from inputā™s and outputā™s market prices. Cannot add value by doing things that investors

can do for themselves.

18. False. There is consumer and producer surplus. e.g., a gas station may have fair prices, but if you are out of

gas, having the ability to buy gas there is very useful to you.

19. Control rights (debt can force bankruptcy, equity votes management), and cash ļ¬‚ow rights (debt gets ļ¬rst

dib, equity gets remainder incl unlimited upside).

20. True. True. False.

21. [1] In a perfect market, the ļ¬nancing mix (debt/equity) of the company makes no diļ¬erence to its value. [2]

In a perfect market, the payout policy of the company makes no diļ¬erence to its value.

22. See Table 23.7

23. See Table 23.7

24.

(a) $100 ā’ $115, so 15%.

(b) $100 ā’ $110, so 10%.

(c) $20 in earnings. $5 in taxes. Thus, tax rate is 25%.

(d) 0.5 Ā· 10% Ā· (1 ā’ 25%) + 0.5 Ā· 15% = 22.5%/2 = 11.25%.

(e) It is not ā’$200 + $225/1.1125 = $2.247! The reason is that the payouts have already taken care of the

taxes. so, you need to use the non-tax adjusted WACC, which is ā’$200 + $225/1.125 = $0. Actually,

another way to see this is to just rely on the statement that everything is fairly pricedā”this means that

there is positive NPV value to be gained here.

25. Cash cows would be debt-ļ¬nanced, have high interest payments, and be held by non-proļ¬ts.

26.

(a) How their value has changed around, i.e., their recent stock prices.

(b) In M&A transactions.

(c) Long-Term debt.

(d) Yes, e.g., pension fund obligations.

(e) Not very strong. They are unlikely to be big enough to stop managers from maintaining lousy capital

structures if they so wish.

27. Match assets and liabilities. Obtain a credit line. Have more liquid investments. Have more equity and less

debt ļ¬nancing.

28. About 1% of deal value.

29. Pecking Order: ļ¬rms prefer issuing debt to equity. Financing pyramid: a lot of debt at the bottom, less equity

at the top. The pecking order does not imply a ļ¬nancing pyramid, perhaps most of all, because equity gains

in value over time.

ļ¬le=appendix.tex: RP

Section a. Q&A: Answers.

30. Debt carries about a zero (or tiny negative) announcement event. Equity is a large negative announcement

event, ā“1.5% (dilution of >10%). Together, this implies that markets like capital payouts and higher leverage.

31. [Legal Bribes]. Empire building. Corporate perks. High executive pay. Entrenching. Friendship+Loyalty.

Employees. Perverse incentives (MBO). Any 5 are enough.

32. Before the company is originally sold, because by reducing future agency problems, the entrepreneur is

increasing the value of the ļ¬rm that she beneļ¬ts from immediately. Thus, it should be a great corporate

charter!
