Corporate Valuation Free cash flow approach
Firm Valuation—Disney Disney has a normal valuation case…. Disney has positive earnings. Disney’s earning has a positive growth rate. Disney’s has sufficient financial information in estimating cost of capital.
Firm Valuation—Disney Cash Flows To Firm To Equity EBIT (1-t) - ( Cap Exp - Depreciation) - Change in Working Capital = Free Cash flow to Firm The Strict View Dividends + Buybacks The Broader View Net Income - Net Cap Exp (1-Debt Ratio) - Chg WC (1 - Debt Ratio) = Free Cash flow to Equity
The growth rates in cash flows Retention ratio ROE g EPS Reinvestment rate ROC g EBIT Operating Income Net Income
Dividend growth, retention ratio, and Return on Equity (ROE) g = retention * ROE Assume that ROE=20%, payout=50%, beginning equity = 100 A. Beg. EQ B. Earnings (A*ROE) C. Dividend (B*50%) D. Ret. Earnings (B-C) E. End EQ (A+D)
The growth rates in cash flows Expected Growth EBIT = Reinvestment Rate * Return on Capital Return on Capital = EBIT (1-t) / Capital Invested
Firm Valuation—Disney 1996 Disney’s basic data EBIT ： $5,559 Million Capital spending ： $ 1,746 Million Depreciation ： $ 1,134 Million Non-cash Working capital Change ： $ 617 Million Book value of Debt ： $7,763 Million (MV$11,180) Book value of Equity ： $11,668 Million (MV$50,880) Levered Beta ： 1.25 Risk free rate ： 7.00% Risk Premium ： 5.50% Tax rate ： 36%
Cost of Equity Cost of Equity ： k equity = 7.00% *5.50% = 13.88% Market Value of Equity = $50,880 Million Equity/(Debt +Equity ) = 82%
Cost of Debt Cost of Debt for Disney = 7.50% (From Moody’s Bond Rating) After-tax Cost of debt = 7.50% (1-36%) = 4.80% Market Value of Debt = $ 11,180 Million Debt/(Debt +Equity) = 18%
WACC WACC = 13.88% * % * 0.18 = 12.24%
1996 Free Cash Flow to the Firm FCFF= EBIT (1 - tax rate) – (Capital Expenditures - Depreciation) – Change in Non-cash Working Capital =$5,559 (1-36%) – ($1,746-$1,134) –$617 =$2,329

The firm Valuation
How to determine a reasonable growth rate? The firm is in stable growth The firm is in a relatively high growth, will be in stable growth after certain years (2- stage) The firm is in a high growth period, will experience a period of transition period before it is in stable growth (3-stage)
The high growth rates and high growth period Very high growth rate in current time – long growth period High entry barriers – long growth period Large size of firm – short growth period

Why we do not consider the cash flows related to the financing? When you use the after-tax cost of capital to be the discount rate, you basically take in the effect of the financing. If you discount the project cash flows (without financing) by the after-tax cost of capital, you will get the exact net present value as you use it to discount the total cash flows (project cash flows plus the financing cash flows). That is, when you use the after-tax cost of capital to discount financing related cash flows, the net present value would be zero.

How do managers create value? Increase the cash flows generated by existing investments Increase the expected growth rate in earnings Increase the length of the high-growth period Reduce the cost of capital that is applied to discount the cash flows.
Increasing the cash flows generated by existing investments Managers can improve upon operating margin by improving operating efficiency and increase the returns to assets-in-place. Tax management can also increase returns on existing assets. Multinational firms can shift income across regions. Net operating losses can shield future income. (Profitable firm acquires unprofitable firm) Working capital management
Increasing the expected growth in FCFF or FCFE Higher growth rates increase the value of the firm today. The offsetting cost is that increasing the reinvestment rate can reduce costs today as it reduces FCFF and FCFE. If reinvestment is NPV>0 project, then the benefits to growth outweigh the reduction on current cash flows. Reinvest as long as EVA>0. ROIC>rWACC
Reducing the cost of financing Changing the financial mix of debt and equity can increase value. Reduce tax liabilities by offsetting tax liabilities with interest payments. Leads to an optimal capital structure for firm than lowers overall cost of capital and maximized firm value.
Adjusted Present Value (APV) Approach APV = PV of asset flows + PV of side effects associated with the financing program. Recall the M/M proposition I:
Adjusted Present Value (APV) Approach Procedure: 1. Calculate PV of project (or enterprise) assuming it is all equity financed (i.e. no interest expense) 2. Calculate value of tax shield. 3. Total firm value = value of all equity firm + side effects of financing.
Calculate PV of project assuming it is all equity financed Assume: Asset (un-levered) beta = 0.7 Long Term T Bond Rate = 6% Market Premium = 7.8% From CAPM, Discount rate = *.078 =.1146 Also assume: Terminal value = (approx.) 7 x FCF
Year:12345 EBIT % Capex Depreciation Increase in NWC FCF Terminal Value Total PV 296.4
Calculate value of tax shield Assume: $150 of debt at 8% (pretax) remains outstanding Year:12345 EBIT Interest(=outstanding debt*.08) Profit before tax % Profit after tax Capex Depreciation Increase in NWC Net CF Ending Debt = (beginning debt –net cash flow)
Compare tax payments with vs. without debt. The difference equals the tax savings available from the interest deduction (tax shield) Discount tax savings at pre-tax rate of return on debt: Tax payments with no debt Tax payments with 8% Tax savings PV of tax 8% $13
Suppose in addition there is a tax loss carry-forward of $100 million. This means that the first $40 million of taxes need not be paid. YearTax savingsTaxable Income Used PV of tax 8% $37 Present value these savings at 8%, produces a value of 37 for the tax loss carry-forward.
APV - Conclusion Total firm value = value of all equity firm (295) + side effects of financing ( ) = 345.
