2Business Risk and Financial Risk Risk – the likely variability associated with expected revenue streams.The variations in the income stream can be attributed to:The firm’s exposure to business riskThe firm’s decision to incur financial riskBusiness Risk – the risk that comes from the nature of the firm’s operating activities.Financial Risk – the risk that comes from the financial policy (i.e capital structure) of the firm.
3Financial and Operating Leverage Financial Leverage – the extent to which a firm relies on debt. The more debt financing a firm uses in its capital structure, the more financial leverage it employs.Operating Leverage – the incurrence of fixed operating costs in the firm’s income stream.
4Break-even AnalysisObjective – to determine the break-even quantity of output by studying the relationships among the firm’s cost structure, volume of output, and operating profit.The break-even quantity of output results in an EBIT level = 0Some actual and potential applications of BEP include:Capital expenditure analysis as a complementary technique to discounted cash flow evaluation models.Pricing policyLabor contract negotiationsEvaluation of cost structureFinancial decision making
5Break-even Analysis Essential elements of the break-even model: Fixed cost – cost that do not vary in total amount as the sales volume or the quantity of output changes. Examples:Administrative salariesDepreciationInsurance premiumsProperty taxesRentVariable cost – cost that tend to vary in total as output changes. VC are fixed per unit of output. Examples:Direct materialsDirect LaborEnergy cost associated with productionPackagingFreight-outSales commissions
6Break-even AnalysisSemivariables costs (Semifixed cost) – cost that exhibit the joint characteristics of both FC and VC over different ranges of output. Examples: Salaries paid to production supervisors.
7Finding Break-even Point The break-even is just a simple adaptation of the firm’s income statement expressed as:Profit (π) = Sales – (Total VC + Total FC)3 ways to find BEP:Trial and ErrorSelect an arbitrary output levelCalculate the corresponding EBIT amountWhen EBIT = 0, BEP has been found.
8Finding Break-even Point Contribution Margin AnalysisContribution Margin = Unit Selling Price – Unit VCBEP (units) = FCcontribution margin per unitAlgebraic AnalysisQB = the break-even level of units soldP = the unit sales priceF = the total FC for the periodV = unit VCThen,QB = FP – V
9Finding Break-even Point Example:Mutiara Corporation (MC) manufactures a complete line of women’s dress. It sells each dress for RM 30. The variable cost for this dress is 70% of sales. Mutiara Corporation; incurs fixed costs of RM 360,000, how many dress must MC sell to breakeven?
11Finding Break-even Point The BEP in sales dollars:S* = F1 – VCSExample:Sales $(-) Total VCRevenue before FC(-) Total FCEBIT $
12Finding Break-even Point Solutions:S* = F = $1 – VC – $S $= $1 – 0.60= $
13Degree of Operating Leverage Leverage from the base = % change in EBITsales level (DOLs) % change in SalesDOLs = Q (P – V)Q (P – V) – FDOLs = revenue before FC = S – VCEBIT S – VC – F
14Degree of Operating Leverage Example:Avitar Corporation manufactures a line of computer memory expansion boards used in microcomputers. The average selling price of its finished product is $175 per unit. The variable cost for these same units is $115. Avitar incurs fixed costs of $650,000 per year. Avitar estimates the sales in next year will be 20,000 units. What is Avitar expected degree of operating leverage?
16Degree of Financial Leverage DFL = % change in EPS > 1% change in EBITDFLEBIT = EBITEBIT – I* I = interest expense
17Degree of Financial Leverage Example:Sales $ 600,000(-) total VC $ 200,000Revenue before FC $ 400,000(-) total FC $ 200,000EBIT $ 200,000(-) interest expenses $ 50,000EBT $ 150,000Taxes (34%) $ 51,000Net Income (EAT) $ 99,000
18Degree of Financial Leverage Solutions:What is the degree of financial leverage?DFLEBIT = EBITEBIT – I= $$ – $= 1.33 times
19Combination of Operating and Financial Leverage DCL = % change in EPS% change in SalesDCLs = (DOLs) x (DFLEBIT)DCLs = Q (P – V)Q (P – V) – F – I
21Planning the Firm’s Financing Mix Financial Structure – the mix of all funds source that appear on the right side of the balance sheet.Capital Structure – the mix of long term sources of funds used by the firm. Basically, this concept omits short-term liabilities.Financial Structure Design – the management activity of seeking the proper mix of all financing components in order to minimize the cost of raising a given of funds.Optimal Capital Structure – the unique capital structure that minimizes the firm’s composite cost of long term capital.
22Planning the Firm’s Financing Mix EBIT-EPS indifference point – the level of EBIT that will equate EPS between two difference financing plans.EPS: Stock Plan EPS: Bond Plan(EBIT – I) (1 – t) – P = (EBIT – I) (1 – t) – PSs Sb* EBIT = earning before interest and taxesI = interest expensest = firm income tax rateP = preferred dividend paidSs = the number of common s/o under the stock planSb = the number of common s/o under the bond plan

24Planning the Firm’s Financing Mix Example:ING Berhad is financed entirely with 800,000 shares of common stock priced at RM 5 per unit and RM 1,000,000 worth of debt (8% 10 years bond). The company plans to raise an additional RM 2,000,000 to finance new project and considering two alternatives;Alternative 1: 200,000 new common shares sold to the publicAlternative 2: Issue 10% bondProjected level of EBIT is at approximately RM 2,000,000. Corporate tax rate is 28%.
25Planning the Firm’s Financing Mix Solutions:Calculate the indifference level of EBIT between two alternatives.* Plan Stock (alternative 1)= Interest on bond = (1,000,000 x 8% = RM 80,000)Unit shares = 800, ,000 = 1,000,000*Plan Bond (alternative 2)= Interest on bond = RM 80,000 + (RM 2,000,000 x 10% = RM 280,000)Unit shares = 800,000
