5) Agency problems in corporation

      Stockholders elect a board of directors
      Board of directors then elect the officers
       – Chairman of the board
       – Chief executive officer (CEO)
       – Chief operating officer (COO)
       – President
       – Chief financial officer (CFO)   Management
       – Vice presidents
       – Treasurer
       – Secretary

Board of directors      Management makes most
deals with broad        of the decisions

3 to 5 year strategic   Day-to-day decisions
plan                    following the strategic

Agency relationship
   – The principals hire the agents to perform a service on
     behalf of the principles.
Agency problems
   – Inefficiencies that arise because of agency relationship
Agency costs
   – The costs incurred to minimize agency problems
a. Owners and management
     Problems created by separation of owners
     and management
      – Management may maximize its own welfare [higher
          compensation,more leisure time and lower risk] instead of
        the owners’ wealth.
      e.g. job security, the consumption of on-the-job
        perquisites./ moral hazard, adverse selection
     Agency costs [Min.]
      –   costs to motivate
      –   costs to monitor
      –   bonding expenditure
      –   the opportunity cost of loss profits
b. Owners and creditors

     Problems created by different returns
     offered to owners and creditors
     – investment of higher risk approved by stockholders
     – new debt issuing approved by stockholders
     Agency costs
     – protective covenants in bond indentures
     e.g. limitation on dividend, debt issuing,
       in(di)vestment and certain ratios, poison put, etc.
     – a higher fixed return
     e.g. RJR Nabisco was required by KKR
3. Objective of financial management

  1) Profit maximization

  2) Shareholder wealth maximization
                 the primary goal

  3) Social responsibility concerns
1) Profit maximization

    Lacks a time dimension
    – offers no explicit basis for comparing
      long-term and short-term profits.
    Definition of profit (GAAP)
    – Total amount / ROE / EPS        p13
    Not considers the risk
2) Shareholder Wealth Maximization

  shareholder wealth
  = market price of common stock
  (firm value)
  = present value of the expected future returns
     to owners
a. SWM objective benefits

    Considers the timing and risk of the benefits
    from stock ownership
    Determines that a good decision increases
    the price of the firm’s common stock (C/S)
    Is an impersonal objective
b. SWM is a market concept

    Maximizing Net Present Value of Cash

    Measured by Market Value of Common
(1) Cash flow

   to the prosperity and survival of a firm
Figure 1.1
A Firm’s Cash Flow Generation Process   ...continued


          Cash Flows
 Accounting profit (earnings)

CF is an unambiguous, clear measure used for
evaluating performance and making decisions.

CF avoids short-term manipulation by managers
and conduces to take a long-term perspective in
decision making.
(2) NPV of an Investment

   = PV of future cash flows - cash outlays

The NPV of an investment represents
the contributions of that investment
to the value of the firm and passes on to SWM.

      – a framework for evaluating future cash flows
        from an investment or a firm
      – a bridge between CF and SWM
(3) Market value of common stock

  Three Basic Factors Determine ~

   Amount of

   Timing of            Expected cash flows

   Risk of

External Conditions Affecting ~

  Economic environment factors
  Political environment factors
  Conditions in financial markets

Competitive Forces Influencing ~

 New entrants
 Substitute products
 Bargaining power of buyers
 Bargaining power of suppliers
 Rivalry among current competitors

3) Social responsibility concerns
       Run business in the interests of
       –   customers
       –   suppliers
       –   employees
       –   creditors
       –   community
       –   government
       –   stockholders, etc.
       Be a good citizen; contribute to SWM
Small business

    – grow rapidly
    – raise capital difficultly
    – lack the depth of managerial talent
   More rely on accounting-based measures
   Agency problems only exist in relation
   between owners and creditors

  The Domestic and International

    Financial Marketplace

   1.   An overview of the U.S. financial system
   2.   The structure and operations of U.S.
        security markets
   3.   Market efficiency
   4.   Income taxes and financial management
   5.   Ten axioms that form the bases of
        financial management
1. the U.S. financial system

   The vehicle that channels funds from saving
   units to investing units
Figure 2.1
Flow-of-Funds Diagram   ...continued

Financial market                              ...continued

  The vehicles through which financial assets are

    Money Market
     – dealing in short-term securities having maturities of one
       year or less.
    Capital Market
     – dealing in long-term securities having maturities
       greater than one year.

Primary Market
– Market where new securities are sold
– Money goes to the issuer
– Sold through a prospectus
Secondary Market
– Market for existing securities are traded among
2. the U.S. security markets
     Secondary Market
       Listed exchanges (e.g. NYSE)
       – Designated place of business
       – Requirements of securities listed or traded
       Over-the-counter (OTC) market
       – Networks connected by communications
       – Dealers post prices to buy and sell
     Stock market indexes
       – DJIA, DJTA, S&P 500, NASDAQ

  – Securities Act of 1933
  – Securities Exchange Act of 1934
  – Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC)
      Regulates disclosure of information in new
      securities and all publicly traded firms
      Example: Insider trading
        – SEC attempts to prevent profiting from
          unpublished information.
3. Capital market efficiency

      Capital markets are efficient
      – if stock prices provide an unbiased estimate of
        the true value of an enterprise.
      – if prices instantaneously and fully reflect all the
        risk and economically relevant information
        about a security’s prospective returns.

      “Glue” that bonds the PV of a firm’s net
      cash flow to shareholders’ wealth
1) Three degrees of market efficiency

  a. Weak form

  b. Semi-strong form

  c. Strong form
a. Weak form

     – Security prices fully reflect all historical

     – No investor can earn excess returns
      using historical prices or returns.
                 ‘technical analysis’
b. Semi-strong form

    – Security prices fully reflect historical and
      publicly available information.

    – No investor can earn excess returns based
      on an investment strategy using public
               ‘fundamental analysis’
c. Strong form

    – Security prices fully reflect all historical,
      public, and private information.

    – No investor can earn excess returns using
      public and private information.
2) Market efficiency implications for
financial managers

    Timing or gambling
    An expected NPV of zero – (i.e. expected return
    equals required return)
    Corporate diversification - unnecessary
    Security price adjustment – reflect expected cash
    flows and risk of the cash flows
    Behavioral finance perspective – anomalies show
    investors may not be fully rational
Holding period return ( HPR)

    – The return from holding an investment for
      one period
    – holding period yield, realized or ex post
      rate of return

    Ending price – Beginning price + Distributions
                                                   × 100%
                    Beginning price
4. Income taxes                                  Appendix A

    Implications for financial managers
     – Capital structure policy
        Debt or equity financing
     – Dividend policy
        Paying dividends or retaining earnings
     – Capital budgeting
        After-tax cash flows
     – Lease or buy decision
        Leveraged leases p730

Taxable income
= Revenues - Tax deductions
– Operating or ordinary income
– Capital gains income
– Dividend income
– Loss carrybacks and carryforwards
Income tax rates
– marginal tax rate
– average tax rate
S corporation

Depreciation methods
MACRS                      For tax purpose
– Asset class [ Recovery period ]
     3, 5, 7, 10, 15, 20 / 27.5, 31.5(or 39) years
– Depreciation methods
    200%DB, 150%DB / Straight-line method
    Half-year convention / Mid-month convention
    Expected salvage value is ignored.
– Depreciation allowances
    affect income tax owed, then cash flows available
    to shareholders
5.Ten axioms

1   The risk-return trade-off
      – we won’t take on additional risk unless we
       expect to be compensated with additional return.
expected return
                  The risk-return relationship

                                            expected return
                                            for taking on
                                            added risk

                     expected return for delaying consumption

Ten axioms

2   All risk is not equal
          – Some risk can be diversified away, and some
     re                              Asset A
     rn                              Combination of asset A and B

                                      Asset B
Ten axioms

Ten axioms

5   Incremental cash flows
      – It’s only what changes that counts

      – Why it’s hard to find exceptionality profitable
Ten axioms

8   Efficient capital markets
      – The markets are quick and the prices are right.
      – In the efficient market, the speed with which
        securities prices reflect all available

        opportunities for investors to earn excess profit
        from the available information.
Ten axioms

      – Managers won’t work for the owners unless it’s
       in their best interest
Ten axioms

10Ethical consideration the right thing, and
    – Ethical behavior is doing
        ethical dilemmas are everywhere in finance.
