Weighted Average Cost Of Capital - WACC

Filed Under: M&A, Preferred Shares

Definition of 'Weighted Average Cost Of Capital - WACC'

A calculation of a firm's cost of capital in which each category of capital is


proportionately weighted. All capital sources - common stock, preferred stock,
bonds and any other long-term debt - are included in a WACC calculation. All
else equal, the WACC of a firm increases as the beta and rate of return on
equity increases, as an increase in WACC notes a decrease in valuation and
a higher risk.

The WACC equation is the cost of each capital component multiplied by its
proportional weight and then summing:

Weighted Average Cost Of Capital (WACC)

Where:

 Re = cost of equity
 Rd = cost of debt
 E = market value of the firm's equity
 D = market value of the firm's debt
 V=E+D
 E/V = percentage of financing that is equity
 D/V = percentage of financing that is debt
 Tc = corporate tax rate

Businesses often discount cash flows at WACC to determine the Net Present
Value (NPV) of a project, using the formula:

1
NPV = Present Value (PV) of the Cash Flows discounted at WACC.

Investopedia explains 'Weighted Average Cost Of Capital - WACC'

Broadly speaking, a company's assets are financed by either debt or equity.


WACC is the average of the costs of these sources of financing, each of
which is weighted by its respective use in the given situation. By taking a
weighted average, we can see how much interest the company has to pay for
every dollar it finances.

A firm's WACC is the overall required return on the firm as a whole and, as
such, it is often used internally by company directors to determine the
economic feasibility of expansionary opportunities and mergers. It is the
appropriate discount rate to use for cash flows with risk that is similar to that
of the overall firm.

What is Breakeven Point?

A company's breakeven point is the point at which its sales exactly cover its
expenses. The company sells enough units of its product to cover its
expenses without making a profit or taking a loss. If it sells more, then it
makes a profit. On the other hand, if it sells less, it takes a loss.

To compute a company's breakeven point in sales volume, you need to know


the values of three variables. Those three variables are fixed costs, variable
costs, and the price of the product. Fixed costs are those which do not
change with the level of sales, such as overhead. Variable costs are those
which do change with the level of sales, such as cost of goods sold. The price
of the product has been set by the company through looking at the wholesale
cost of the product, or the cost of manufacturing the product, and marking it
up.

How to Calculate Breakeven Point?

In order to calculate your company's breakeven point, use the following


formula:

Fixed Costs/Price - Variable Costs = Breakeven Point in Units

In this formula, fixed costs are stated as a total -- the total fixed costs for the
firm. Basically, this means the total overhead for the firm. Price and variable
costs, however, are stated as per unit costs - the price for each product sold
and the variable cost for that unit of the product. The denominator of the
equation, price minus variable costs, is called the contribution margin. In other
words, this is the amount, per unit of product sold, that the firm can contribute
to paying its fixed costs.

An Example of Breakeven Point

XYZ Corporation has calculated that it has fixed costs that consist of its lease,
depreciation of its assets, executive salaries, and property taxes. Those fixed
costs add up to $60,000. Their product is the widget. Their variable costs
associated with producing the widget are raw material, factory labor, and
sales commissions. Variable costs have been calculated to be $0.80 per unit.
The widget is priced at $2.00 each.
