              Calculation of Sum of values of pure business flows and financing effect

         ClassOf1 provides expert guidance to College, Graduate, and High school students on homework and assignment problems in
                       Math, Sciences, Finance, Marketing, Statistics, Economics, Engineering, and many other subjects.

              In the preceding problem, we divided the value of all the assets between two classes of
              investors: creditors and shareholders. This process tells us where the change in value is going,
              but it sheds little light on where the change is coming from. Let’s divide the free cash flows of
              the firm into pure business flows and cash flows resulting from financing effects. Now, an axiom
              in finance is that you should discount cash flows at a rate consistent with the risk of those cash
              flows. Pure business flows should be discounted at the unlevered cost of equity (i.e., the cost of
              capital for the unlevered firm). Financing flows should be discounted at the rate of return
              required by the providers of debt.
