**investment decisions as it is used to
**

measure the worth of investment

proposal.

It is used as a discount rate in

determining the present value of future

cash flows associated with capital

projects.

Conceptually, it is the minimum rate of return

that a firm must earn on its investments so as

to leave market price of its shares unchanged.

It is also referred to as cut-off rate, target rate,

hurdle rate, required rate of return and so on.

In operational terms, it is defined as the

weighted average cost of capital (k

0

) of

all long-term sources of finance. The

major long-term sources of funds are

1) Debt,

2) Preference shares,

3) Equity capital, and

4) Retained earnings.

The theory of cost of capital is based

on certain assumptions. A basic

assumption of traditional cost of capital

analysis is that the firm’s business and

financial risks are unaffected by the

acceptance and financing of projects

Business risk is the risk to the firm of being

unable to cover fixed operating costs.

Business risk measures the variability in

operating profits [earnings before interest

and taxes (EBIT)] due to change in sales

Financial risk is the risk of being unable to

cover required financial obligations such as

interest and preference dividends.

Capital budgeting decision determines the

business risk complexion of the firm. The

financing decision determines its financial

risk.

The explicit cost of capital is

associated with the raising of funds

(from debt, preference shares and

equity).

The explicit cost of any source of

capital (C) is the discount rate that

equates the present value of the cash

inflows (CI

o

) that are incremental to the

taking of financing opportunity with the

present value of its incremental cash

outflows (CO

t

).

Retained earnings involve no future

cash flows to, or from, the firm.

Therefore, the retained earnings do not

have explicit cost.

However, they carry implicit cost in

terms of the opportunity cost of the

foregone alternative (s) in terms of the

rate of return at which the shareholders

could have invested these funds had

they been distributed to them/or not

retained by the firm

There are four types of specific costs

Cost of Debt

Cost of Preference Shares

Cost of Equity Capital

Cost of Retained Earnings

Cost of debt is the after tax cost of long-

term funds through borrowing. The debt

carries a certain rate of interest. Interest

qualifies for tax deduction in determining

tax liability.

Therefore, the effective cost of debt is less

than the actual interest payment made by

the firm by the amount of tax shield it

provides. The debt can be either

Perpetual/ irredeemable Debt

Redeemable Debt

In the case of perpetual debt, it is

computed dividing effective interest

payment, i.e., I (1 – t) by the amount of

debt/sale proceeds of debentures or bonds

(SV). Symbolically

Example 1

Determine the cost of capital (before tax as

well as after tax) assuming the debt is

issued at (i) par, (ii) 10 per cent discount,

and (iii) 10 per cent premium.

In the case of redeemable debt, the

repayment of debt principal (COP)

The cost of debt is generally the lowest

among all sources partly because the risk

involved is low but mainly because interest

paid on debt is tax deductible.

Example 2

A company issues a new 10 per cent

debentures of Rs 1,000 face value to be

redeemed after 10 years The debenture is

expected to be sold at 5 per cent discount.

It will also involve floatation costs of 5 per

cent of face value. The company’s tax rate

is 35 per cent. What would the cost of debt

be? Illustrate the computations using (1)

trial and error approach and (2) shortcut

method.

Example 3 A company has issued 10

per cent debentures aggregating Rs

1,00,000. The flotation cost is 4 per

cent. The company has agreed to repay

the debentures at par in 5 equal annual

instalments starting at the end of year

1. The company’s rate of tax is 35 per

cent. Find the cost of debt.a

The cost of preference share (k

p

) is akin to

k

d

. However, unlike interest payment on

debt, dividend payable on preference

shares is not tax deductible from the point

of view assessing tax liability. On the

contrary, tax (D

paid on the payment of preference

dividend.

ABC Ltd has issued 11 per cent

preference shares of the face value of

Rs 100 each to be redeemed after 10

years. Flotation cost is expected to be 5

preference shares (k

).

The computation of cost of equity

capital (k

e

) is conceptually more

difficult as the return to the equity-

holders solely depends upon the

discretion of the company

management.

It is defined as the minimum rate of

return that a corporate must earn on

the equity-financed portion of an

investment project in order to leave

unchanged the market price of the

shares.

One simple basis suggested to

determine cost of equity is to add a

judgmental risk premium of 3 to 5

percentage points to the interest rate

paid by the firm on its own long-term

debt. Such a method may be referred to

as debt-yield plus risk premium

approach

There are two approaches to measure

Ke:

Dividend Valuation Model Approach

Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)

Approach.

As per the dividend approach, cost of equity capital is

defined as the discount rate that equates the present

value of all expected future dividends per share with the

net proceeds of the sale (or the current market price) of a

share.

The cost of equity capital can be measured with the

following equations:

g = Growth in expected dividends

The calculation of k

e

on the basis of Eq. 12 is based on certain

assumptions with respect to the behaviour of investors and

their ability to forecast future values:

the market value of shares depends upon the expected

dividends;

investors can formulate subjective probability distribution of

dividends per share expected to be paid in various future

periods;

the initial dividend, D

0

, is greater than zero (D

0

> 0);

the dividend pay-out ratio is constant;

investors can accurately measure the riskiness of the firm so

as to agree on the rate at which to discount the dividends.

Note: Under the provisions of Section 115(O), of the Income

Tax Act, 1961, a domestic company is liable to pay tax at a flat

rate of 11.5 per cent (plus surcharge) on dividends

declared/distributed/paid on/after April 1, 2003. The payment

of the dividend tax will reduce the growth (g) in dividends:

Example 6

Suppose that dividend per share of a firm

is expected to be Re 1 per share next year

and is expected to grow at 6 per cent per

year perpetually. Determine the cost of

equity capital, assuming the market price

per share is Rs 25.

In case company’s past growth rate has been abnormally

high or low, either due to its own unique situation or due

to general economic fluctuations, historic growth rates (g)

may not be reliable. In such situations, dividend growth

forecasts should be based on factors such as projected

sales, profit margins and competitive factors.

Accordingly, ke would be as follows:

D

1

k

e

= ------ + (Growth rate as projected)

(11.13-A)

P

0

Another method for estimating g can be conceived in

terms of the company’s projected retention rate and its

expected future rate of return on equity. More profitable

firms retain a large proportion of their earnings for

reinvestment and will, therefore, tend to have higher

growth rate compared to less profitable firms which

distribute a large proportion of their earnings as

dividends.

However, the dividend growth model

approach is beset with a number of

practical problems and drawbacks. The

major ones are:

(1) It is applicable only to those

corporates which pay dividends. Its

results are really applicable to cases

where a reasonably steady growth is likely

to occur;

(2) Cost of equity is very sensitive to the

estimated growth. As explained earlier, it

is not easy to estimate its value;

(3) The approach does not explicitly

reckon risk factor. There is no allowance

for the degree of risk associated with the

estimated growth rate for dividends.

Example 7

From the undermentioned facts determine the cost of

equity shares of company X:

(i) Current market price of a share = Rs 150.

(ii) Cost of floatation per share on new shares, Rs 3.

(iii) Dividend paid on the outstanding shares over the

past five years:

Year Dividend per share

1 10.50

2 11.02

3 11.58

4 12.16

5 12.76

6 13.40

(iv) Assume a fixed dividend pay out ratio.

(v) Expected dividend on the new shares at the end of

the current year is Rs 14.10 per share.

The CAPM describes the relationship between the required rate of return or

the cost of equity capital and the non-diversifiable or relevant risk of the

firm as reflected in its index of non-diversifiable risk, that is, beta.

Symbolically,

Example 8

The Hypothetical Ltd wishes to calculate its cost of equity

capital using the capital asset pricing model approach. From

the information provided to the firm by its investment advisors

along with the firms’ own analysis, it is found that the risk-free

rate of return equals 10 per cent; the firm’s beta equals 1.50

and the return on the market portfolio equals 12.5 per cent.

Compute the cost of equity capital.

Liquor Ltd = 8% + 0.5 (26.33% – 8%) 17.16

Government of India Bonds = 8% + 0.99 (26.33% – 8%) 26.15

The capital assets pricing model (CAPM) approach to calculate the

cost of equity capital is different from the dividend valuation

approach in some respects. In the first place, the CAPM approach

directly considers the risk as reflected in beta in order to determine

the K

e

. The valuation model does not consider the risk; it rather uses

the market price as a reflection of the expected risk-return preference

of investors in the market.

Secondly, the dividend model can be adjusted for flotation cost to

estimate the cost of the new equity shares. The CAPM approach is

incapable of such adjustment as the model does not include the

market price which has to be adjusted.

Both the dividend and CAPM approaches are theoretically sound. But

major problems are encountered in the practical application of the

CAPM approach in collecting data—which may not be readily

available or in a country like India may be altogether absent—

regarding expected future returns, the most appropriate estimate of

the risk-free rate and the best estimates of the security’s beta.

In brief, various methods of estimating Ke are most likely to provide

different amounts because each method relies on different

assumptions. There are two ways to deal with the situation: (1) Each

estimate of Ke should be looked at to ascertain that its value is

neither too high nor too low. It should intuitively appear to be

reasonable; (2) Average the various estimates of Ke.

Cost of Retained Earnings

The cost of retained earning (k

r

) is equally difficult to

calculate in theoretical terms. Since retained earnings

essentially involves use of funds, it is associated with an

opportunity/implicit cost. The alternative to retained earnings

is the investment of the funds by the firm itself in a

homogeneous outside investment. Therefore, k

r

is equal to

k

e

. However, it might be slightly lower than k

e

in the case of

new equity issue due to flotation costs.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital

Weighted average cost of capital is the expected average

future cost of funds over the long run found by weighting the

cost of each specific type of capital by its proportion in the

firm;s capital structure.

Assignment of Weights

The aspects relevant to the selection of appropriate weights

are:

1) Historical weights

a) Book value weights or

b) Market value weights

2) Marginal Weights

Historical Weights Historic weights either book or market

value weights are based on actual capital structure

proportion to calculate weights.

Market Value Weights Market value weights use market

values to measure the proportion of each type of capital to

calculate weighted average cost of capital.

Book Value Weights Book value weights use accounting

(book) values to measure the proportion of each type of

capital to calculate the weighted average cost of capital

Marginal Weights Marginal weights use proportion of each

type of capital to the total capital to be raised.

Solution

(1) The determination of the market value of retained earnings presents

operational difficulties. The market value of retained earnings can be indirectly

estimated. A possible criterion has been suggested by Gitman,19 according to

which, since retained earnings are treated as equity capital for purpose of

calculation of cost of specific source of funds, the market value of the ordinary

shares may be taken to represent the combined market value of equity shares

and retained earnings. The separate market values of retained earnings and

ordinary shares may be found by allocating to each of these a percentage of

the total market value equal to their percentage share of the total based on

book values.

On the basis of the foregoing criterion, the sum of Rs 7,50,000 in Example 11 is

allocated between equity capital and retained earnings as follows:

Source of funds Book value Per cent of book value Market value

(1) (2) (3) (4)

Equity shares Rs 4,00,000 80 Rs 6,00,000*

plant. It estimates that Rs 1,00,000 will be available as retained earnings and the

balance of the additional funds will be raised as follows:

Long-term debt Rs 3,00,000

Preference shares 1,00,000

Using marginal weights, compute the weighted average cost of capital.

COST OF CAPITAL PRACTICES IN INDIA

The main features of the cost of capital practices followed by the corporates in India

are as follows:

The most frequently used (67 per cent of cases) discount rate (i.e., minimum

acceptable/required rate of return) to evaluate capital budgeting decision is

based on the overall cost (WACC) of the corporate.

Depending on the risk characteristics of the project, multiple risk-adjusted

discount rates are used by about one-fifth of the corporate enterprises.

The specific cost of capital used to finance the project (i.e. if the discount rate for

a project that will be financed entirely with retained earnings is the cost of

retained funds) is used by one-fourth of the sample corporates.

The CAPM is the most popular method of estimating the cost of equity capital (54

per cent). The Gordon’s dividend model is equally popular method to compute

the cost of equity capital (52 per cent). The earnings yield approach is used by

one-third of the sample corporates to estimate the cost of equity capital. The use

of the multi-factor model is used by very few corporates (7 per cent).

A significant feature of the methods used to estimate the cost of equity capital is

that while the CAPM is significantly used by the large corporates, the Gordon’s

discount model is more popular with small firms. Moreover, the highly profitable

corporate (based on ROCE and EAV) give significantly low importance to

dividend yield and earnings yield to compute the cost of equity capital than the

less profitable corporates.

The Government of India (GOI) 10-year bonds are the most widely used risk-free

rate to compute the cost of capital using the CAPM approach. The industry

average beta is the most popular measure of the systematic risk used by the

corporates. Each of the published sources of beta and the self-calculated beta

are also used by about one-fifth of the corporates respectively.

The self-calculated beta is more popularly used by the large and/highly profitable

corporates. The small and low profitable corporates rely more on the published

sources of beta.

The majority of corporates (two-thirds) considers the last 5-year monthly share

price data to estimate the equity beta. The highly profitable firms use weekly

share price data for the purpose.

The average market risk premium (9-10 per cent) is the most widely used

measure by the corporates. The average of historical return and the implied

return on the market portfolio are also fairly popular as an input while using the

CAPM.

As regards the cost of debt, the most widely used method is the interest tax

shield (i.e., tax advantage of interest on debt).

While the majority of the corporates revise their estimates of cost of capital

annually, some of the sample corporates continuously revise it with every

investment.

Apart from project choice criterion, the cost of capital is also used widely for (a)

divisional performance measurement , (b) EVA computation and (c) CVA

computations.

CONTD.

Majority of the sample companies adopt theoretically sound and

conceptually correct basis of determining the cost of capital, namely, the

weighted average cost of long-term sources of finance. However, there is no

systematic procedure followed to compute it. It is more likely to be subjective

in nature. The Indian corporates use of mix of the WACC, marginal cost of

capital of additional funds and management judgment in this regard.

There is wide divergence in the corporate practices as regards the

computation of the cost of equity capital. About one-tenth of the corporates

do not attach any cost to equity capital. Another one-tenth treat the cost of

equity capital as equivalent to primary rate of return available on securities of

balanced mutual funds and debentures issued by blue chip companies.

However, the vast majority of companies (two-thirds of the sample) follow the

conceptually sound methods (i.e. primary rate of return plus risk premium,

dividend valuation model and CAPM) of determining the cost of equity

capital.

About one-fifth of the sample corporates consider retained earnings as a

cost-free source of finance. However, a sizeable proportion of the sample

companies (75 per cent) regard cost of retained earnings either as equivalent

to opportunity cost of using these funds by the corporate/equity-holders or

equal to the cost of equity capital.

The

cost of capital is an integral part of investment decisions as it is used to measure the worth of investment proposal. It is used as a discount rate in determining the present value of future cash flows associated with capital projects.

Conceptually, it is the minimum rate of return that a firm must earn on its investments so as to leave market price of its shares unchanged. It is also referred to as cut-off rate, target rate, hurdle rate, required rate of return and so on.

In

operational terms, it is defined as the weighted average cost of capital (k0) of all long-term sources of finance. The major long-term sources of funds are

1) Debt, 2) Preference shares,

**3) Equity capital, and
**

4) Retained earnings.

The

theory of cost of capital is based on certain assumptions. A basic assumption of traditional cost of capital analysis is that the firm’s business and financial risks are unaffected by the acceptance and financing of projects

Business risk measures the variability in operating profits [earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT)] due to change in sales Financial risk is the risk of being unable to cover required financial obligations such as interest and preference dividends. Business risk is the risk to the firm of being unable to cover fixed operating costs. The financing decision determines its financial risk. Capital budgeting decision determines the business risk complexion of the firm. .

preference shares and equity). The explicit cost of any source of capital (C) is the discount rate that equates the present value of the cash inflows (CIo) that are incremental to the taking of financing opportunity with the present value of its incremental cash outflows (COt). The explicit cost of capital is associated with the raising of funds (from debt. .

If CI0 is received in instalments.. then.

the retained earnings do not have explicit cost. However. they carry implicit cost in terms of the opportunity cost of the foregone alternative (s) in terms of the rate of return at which the shareholders could have invested these funds had they been distributed to them/or not retained by the firm . Retained earnings involve no future cash flows to. the firm. or from. Therefore.

There are four types of specific costs Cost of Debt Cost of Preference Shares Cost of Equity Capital Cost of Retained Earnings .

The debt can be either Perpetual/ irredeemable Debt Redeemable Debt . Interest qualifies for tax deduction in determining tax liability. Therefore. the effective cost of debt is less than the actual interest payment made by the firm by the amount of tax shield it provides. Cost of debt is the after tax cost of longterm funds through borrowing. The debt carries a certain rate of interest.

i.. In the case of perpetual debt. it is computed dividing effective interest payment. I (1 – t) by the amount of debt/sale proceeds of debentures or bonds (SV).

The cost of debt is generally the lowest among all sources partly because the risk involved is low but mainly because interest paid on debt is tax deductible.

What would the cost of debt be? Illustrate the computations using (1) trial and error approach and (2) shortcut method. . The company’s tax rate is 35 per cent.000 face value to be redeemed after 10 years The debenture is expected to be sold at 5 per cent discount. It will also involve floatation costs of 5 per cent of face value. Example 2 A company issues a new 10 per cent debentures of Rs 1.

The company’s rate of tax is 35 per cent.a . Find the cost of debt.00. Example 3 A company has issued 10 per cent debentures aggregating Rs 1.000. The flotation cost is 4 per cent. The company has agreed to repay the debentures at par in 5 equal annual instalments starting at the end of year 1.

The cost of preference share (kp) is akin to kd. dividend payable on preference shares is not tax deductible from the point of view assessing tax liability. unlike interest payment on debt. tax (Dt) may be required to be paid on the payment of preference dividend. However. On the contrary. Irredeemable Preference Shares Redeemable Preference Shares .

In terms of equation: Kp kp P f 0 1 Dp D p Dt 1 P f 0 1 (8) . The cost of preference shares in the case of irredeemable preference shares is based on dividends payable on them and the sale proceeds obtained by issuing such preference shares. P0 (1 – f ).

where kp = Cost of preference capital Dp= Constant annual dividend payment P0 = Expected sales price of preference shares f = Flotation costs as a percentage of sales price Dt = Tax on preference dividend .

Flotation costs are estimated at 5 per cent of the expected sale price. and (iii) 5 per cent discount? (b) Also. if preference shares are issued at (i) par value. (a) What is the kp. (ii) 10 per cent premium. compute kp in these situations assuming 13.A company issues 11 per cent irredeemable preference shares of the face value of Rs 100 each.125 per cent dividend tax .

The cost of redeemable preference shares requiring lump sum repayment (P) is determined on the basis of the following equation: P0 1 f t 1 n Dp 1 Dt 1 k p t Pn 1 k p n Pt 1 k p t In the case of repayment requiredin instalments : P0 1 f t 1 n Dp 1 Dt 1 k p t .

where P0 = Expected sale price of preference shares f = Floatation cost as percentage of P0 Dp = Dividends paid on preference shares Pn = Repayment of preference capital amount .

Determine the cost of preference shares (kp). Flotation cost is expected to be 5 per cent. . ABC Ltd has issued 11 per cent preference shares of the face value of Rs 100 each to be redeemed after 10 years.

The computation of cost of equity capital (ke) is conceptually more difficult as the return to the equityholders solely depends upon the discretion of the company management. It is defined as the minimum rate of return that a corporate must earn on the equity-financed portion of an investment project in order to leave unchanged the market price of the shares. .

One simple basis suggested to determine cost of equity is to add a judgmental risk premium of 3 to 5 percentage points to the interest rate paid by the firm on its own long-term debt. . Such a method may be referred to as debt-yield plus risk premium approach There are two approaches to measure Ke: Dividend Valuation Model Approach Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) Approach.

we get P0 D1 ke g (11) ke D1 g P0 (1 .Simplifying Eq. The cost of equity capital can be measured with the following equations: When dividends are expected to grow at a uniform rate perpetually: n D0 1 g D0 1 g D0 1 g D 1 g P0 1 f .As per the dividend approach... cost of equity capital is defined as the discount rate that equates the present value of all expected future dividends per share with the net proceeds of the sale (or the current market price) of a share. 10. 1 1 k e 1 1 k e 2 1 k e n t 1 1 k e t 1 2 n t 1 (10) k e in Eq. 10 is the rate of return(discountrate) which equates the two sides of the equation.

The payment of the dividend tax will reduce the growth (g) in dividends: . investors can accurately measure the riskiness of the firm so as to agree on the rate at which to discount the dividends. investors can formulate subjective probability distribution of dividends per share expected to be paid in various future periods. the dividend pay-out ratio is constant.

(11. dividend growth forecasts should be based on factors such as projected sales. In such situations. Accordingly.

The major ones are: (1) It is applicable only to those corporates which pay dividends. (3) The approach does not explicitly reckon risk factor. (2) Cost of equity is very sensitive to the estimated growth. it is not easy to estimate its value. the dividend growth model approach is beset with a number of practical problems and drawbacks. Its results are really applicable to cases where a reasonably steady growth is likely to occur. As explained earlier. There is no allowance for the degree of risk associated with the estimated growth rate for dividends. . However.

Both the dividend and CAPM approaches are theoretically sound. The valuation model does not consider the risk. . it rather uses the market price as a reflection of the expected risk-return preference of investors in the market.The capital assets pricing model (CAPM) approach to calculate the cost of equity capital is different from the dividend valuation approach in some respects. the CAPM approach directly considers the risk as reflected in beta in order to determine the Ke. Secondly. the dividend model can be adjusted for flotation cost to estimate the cost of the new equity shares. But major problems are encountered in the practical application of the CAPM approach in collecting data—which may not be readily available or in a country like India may be altogether absent— regarding expected future returns. the most appropriate estimate of the risk-free rate and the best estimates of the security’s beta. In the first place. The CAPM approach is incapable of such adjustment as the model does not include the market price which has to be adjusted.

various methods of estimating Ke are most likely to provide different amounts because each method relies on different assumptions. There are two ways to deal with the situation: (1) Each estimate of Ke should be looked at to ascertain that its value is neither too high nor too low.In brief. (2) Average the various estimates of Ke. It should intuitively appear to be reasonable. .

it might be slightly lower than ke in the case of new equity issue due to flotation costs. Since retained earnings essentially involves use of funds. However. kr is equal to ke. Therefore. it is associated with an opportunity/implicit cost. The alternative to retained earnings is the investment of the funds by the firm itself in a homogeneous outside investment. .Cost of Retained Earnings The cost of retained earning (kr) is equally difficult to calculate in theoretical terms.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital Weighted average cost of capital is the expected average future cost of funds over the long run found by weighting the cost of each specific type of capital by its proportion in the firm.s capital structure. Assignment of Weights The aspects relevant to the selection of appropriate weights are: 1) Historical weights a) Book value weights or b) Market value weights Marginal Weights 2) .

Market Value Weights Market value weights use market values to measure the proportion of each type of capital to calculate weighted average cost of capital.Historical Weights Historic weights either book or market value weights are based on actual capital structure proportion to calculate weights. . Book Value Weights Book value weights use accounting (book) values to measure the proportion of each type of capital to calculate the weighted average cost of capital Marginal Weights Marginal weights use proportion of each type of capital to the total capital to be raised.
