An all-equity firm wants to raise some amount of external financing (the proceed of the issue) to finance an investment project. It considers issuing a 3-year zero-coupon. You are asked to analyze the term of the issue using a binomial model with 1 step per year. You are given the following data: Market data: risk-free interest rate , market risk premium Company data: number of shares outstanding, current stock price, standard deviation of returns (volatility), beta asset Zero-coupon: Face value, Maturity (3 years), Issue price You are asked: - to calculate the market values of the equity and of the debt following the issue; - to compute the expected return on equity and the expected return on debt Solvay Business School Risky debt A.Farber Introduction the issue) Solvay Business School Risky debt Page 4/11 Data and questions Risky debt valuation using the binomial model Professor André Farber Basic data: Number shares 500 Price per share 25 Volatility 40% Beta Asset 1.2 Market risk premium 5% Riskless rate 4% Zero-coupon Face value of issue 12,000 Maturity 3 Proceed 10,000 To analyze this issue, use a binomial model with 1 step per year. 1. Build a three-step binomial tree for the value of company We will first calculate the market values of debt and equity. Remember that to achieve this, we apply the risk-neutral valuation principle. We assume that we are in a risk-neutral world. This is done by using risk-neutral probabilities. 2. Calculate the value of the debt and of the equity at maturity 3. Based on the risk-neutral valuation principle, compute the following: - the market value of the debt - the market value of the equity - the market value of the option to default 4. Is the issue properly priced? Who gains or looses from any mispricing? The next questions analyze expected returns on the equity and on the debt. To do so, it is useful to move back to the "real" world and to calculate the "true" probabilities. These true probabilities are obtained in two steps. Step 1: Based on the CAPM, compute the expected return on equity of the unlevered firm (ra) Step 2: Compute the true probability (q) as the solution of: q*u + (1-q) * d = 1+ra 5. Calculate the expected return on the equity of the levered firm. Two differents methods leading to the same result: a) To use the CAPM, proceed as follow: - calculate the delta of equity - calculate the beta of equity for the levered firm Solvay Business School Risky debt Page 5/11 Data and questions - use CAPM equation to get the expected return on equity b) Direct calculation based on true probabilities: - calculate the realized returns in the up and down cases; - calculate the expected return using the true probabilities. 6. Calculate the expected return on the debt of the levered firm. Once again, two different methods lead to the same result: a) View the risky debt as a portfolio composed of risk-free debt and a (short) put option Step 1: calculate the expected return on the put option - calculate the delta of the put (using the put-call parity relationship or based on the binomial tree) -calculate the beta of the put -use the CAPM equation to get the expected return on the put option Step 2: calculate the expected return on the risky debt as a weighted average of returns on the risk-free debt and on the put option b) Direct calculation based on true probabilities: - calculate the realized returns in the up and down cases; - calculate the expected return using the true probabilities. 7. The final step in our analysis is to calculate the weighted average cost of capital. This a way to check whether previous results are correct. MM 1958 applies in this model: the WACC is independent of the capital structure.
