5 key Principles of Capital Budgeting 1. Cash flows only, not accounting income 2. Cash flows are based on opportunity costs 3. Cash flows should be timed properly 4. Cash flows are always after-tax 5. Financing costs are reflected in required rate of return

Independent Projects Project decisions are unrelated to each other Mutually Exclusive Projects Only one of the projects can be done Capital Rationing Firm should maximize shareholder value with the limited capital available

## Cost of Capital is 10%

## If PI > 1, accept the project

If PI < 1, reject the project

NPV assumes cash flows are re-invested at the cost of capital NPV does not take project size into consideration Multiple IRR / No IRR arise when sign of cash flows change more than once Each method has its advantages and disadvantages

When faced with a conflict between NPV and IRR, always go with NPV
European firms prefer PBP and DPBP methods Larger firms prefer NPV and IRR methods Public firms prefer NPV & IRR. Private firms prefer PBP Firms run by MBAs and CFAs prefer NPV and IRR

A firms capital has 3 main components Common Equity Preferred Equity Debt Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) is:

WACC

## {Wd * kd * (1-tax)} + {We * ke} + {Wpe * kpe}

Cost of Debt Cost of debt is straight-forward. Kd is always multiplied by (1-tax rate)

Cost of Preferred Equity Kpe is given by preferred dividend CMP of preferred equity Cost of Equity 3 methods CAPM Method DDM Method Bond yield plus risk premium approach

## Capital Asset Pricing Model Dividend Discount Model

growth rate = ROE * RR

## Cost of equity = bond yield + risk premium

What is Beta measures the systematic risk of a stock Beta formula = covariance (stock, market)
variance (market)

## Sometimes CRP is multiplied with beta and added

CRP = sovereign yield spread * (annualized sd of equity index / annualized sd of sovereign bond market in terms of developed market currency

Marginal Cost of Capital shows the WACC for different amounts of financing Break Point = amt. of capital at which components cost of capital changes
weight of the component in the capital structure

Include floatation costs in the numerator, never along with the discount rate

Degree of Operating Leverage - % change in operating income for a given % change in sales DOL = (change in EBIT / EBIT) / (change in sales / sales) DOL = Q*(P-V) / Q*(P-V) F Degree of Financial Leverage - % change in EPS for a given % change in EBIT DFL = EBIT / EBIT Interest Degree of Total Leverage = DOL * DFL
