Introduction
Every company needs funds for:
Working capital for current business operations
Long term investments launching new product,
improvisation of existing product, aggressive
positioning & marketing of product, expansion,
restructuring, acquisition, modernization, contingency
requirements & replacement of long-term assets from
time to time.

Hence, they should know:
How much funds they require,
From where will they procure the required funds, &
At what cost the funds will be available & procured.

Introduction
As cost of long term funds is high, companies need to
manage such funds & try to control the cost & risk
involved with it.
Inefficient management of such funds can lead to high
cost of capital for the company, which in turn
decreases the profits thereby depleting the value 0f the
company.
5
Concept of cost of capital

Investor

Cost of borrowed
money
=
Company pays cost to investors
for lending their money
Lends money at an expected
return
Cost Of Capital
The rate that must be earned on the funds or capital
employed by the company.
The minimum rate of return that a firm must earn on
its investments for the market value of the common
stock of the firm to remain unchanged
It is also referred to as a hurdle rate because this is
the minimum acceptable rate of return.
It is the compensation expected by the investors from
the company for the time & risk taken up by them.
7
Cost Of Capital
Any investment which does not cover the firms cost
of funds will reduce shareholder wealth (e.g. if you
borrowed money at 10% to make an investment
which earned 7%, it would reduce your wealth)
Hence if

where r = rate of return
k = cost of capital

8
Value Maximization r > k
Meaning
When we say a firm has a cost of capital of, for
example, 12%, we are saying:
The firm can only have a positive NPV on a project if
return exceeds 12%
The firm must earn 12% just to compensate investors for
the use of their capital in a project
The use of capital in a project must earn 12% or more

9
Required Rate of Return
Vs
Cost of Capital
Required rate of return :
is from the investors point of view
Cost of capital :
is the same return from the firms point of view
Appropriate discount rate:
is the same rate yet again to be used in the present
value calculations
10
Significance
Evaluating Capital budgeting decision

Designing a firms optimal capital structure such
that value of the firm is maximum & cost of capital
is minimum

Appraising the financial performance of top
management by comparing the profit & the cost of
capital (r>k)

11
General economic conditions
Demand for and supply of capital within the economy and the
level of expected inflation
Market conditions:
As the marketability of a security increases, investors required
rates of return decrease, lowering the companys cost of capital.
Amount of financing:
Requests for larger amounts of capital increase the firms cost of
capital.
A firms operating and financing decisions
Business Risk- The risk to the firm of being unable to cover the
fixed operating costs.
Financial Risk- The risk of being unable to cover required
financial obligations like interest & preference dividends.
12
Factors determining the cost of capital
Components of cost of capital
Three components of cost of capital, k
The riskless cost of the particular type of financing, r
j

Or
k = r
j
+ b + f

13
Sources of funds
Common stock (Equity Shares)
Preferred stock (Preference Shares)
Bonds & debentures (debt)
Retained earnings (profit the company makes but does
not give to the shareholders in the form of dividends)

14
Specific Cost
Since different sources of funds have different risks,
investors require different rates of return on various
securities, thereby causing different cost of capital to the
firm.
Risk with equity capital > risk with preference capital> risk
with debt
In case of companies
Cost of equity > cost of preference shares > cost of debt
In case of investors
Return of equity > return of preference shares > return of debt
15
Specific Cost
Example:
Cost of debt
Cost of preference shares
Cost of equity capital
Cost of retained earnings
16
Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)
When the specific costs are combined to arrive at the
overall cost of capital.
Also called composite cost of capital, combined cost of
capital or just cost of capital.
17
Computation of Cost of Capital
Steps:
1. Computation of cost of specific sources of a capital,
viz., debt, preference capital, equity and retained
earnings, and
2. Computation of weighted average cost of capital
18
19
Flotation Costs
When a company sells securities to the public, it must
use the services of an investment banker
The investment banker provides a number of services
for the firm, including:
Setting the price of the issue, and
Selling the issue to the public
The cost of these services are referred to as floatation
costs, and they must be accounted for in the WACC
Generally, we do this by reducing the proceeds from the
issue by the amount of the flotation costs, and
recalculating the cost of capital
20
21
Cost of Debt
Includes :
Term loans from banks & financial institutions
Debentures
Bonds
Debt may be perpetual or redeemable debt.
Also, it may be issued at par, at premium or
discount.
22
Cost of Debt
Regarding Cost of Debt, k
d
:
Equals the current interest cost or coupon rate
to borrow new funds
Current interest rates are determined from the
going rate in the financial markets
Before tax cost of debt is the rate of return
required by the lenders
23
The interest paid on debt is tax deductible
The higher the interest charges, lower would be the
amount of tax payable by the firm.
As a result, the after-tax cost of debt to the firm will be
substantially lower than the investors required rate of
return.
After-tax-cost of debt = k

Exercise
A company issued Rs. 1,00,000 10% redeemable
debentures at a discount of 5%. The cost of flotation
amount to Rs. 3,000. The debentures are redeemable
after 5 years. Compute before tax and after tax cost
of debt. The tax rate is 50%.
30
Exercise
ABC Ltd. issues 15% debentures of face value of Rs. 100
each, redeemable at the end of 7 years, the debentures
are issued at a discount of 5% and the floatation cost is
estimated to be 1%.
Find out the cost of capital of debentures given that
the firm has 50% tax rate.
31
32
Cost of Preference Capital
It is the dividend expected by the preference shareholders.
In case of preference capital, payment of dividends is not
legally binding
Preference dividend is not tax deductible, unlike interest
payments on debt, as its an appropriation of earnings
They are paid out after corporate tax has been paid. No
adjustment is required for taxes while computing k
p
Since interest is tax deductible & preference dividend is not,
the cost of preference capital is substantially higher
than the after tax cost of debt
Preference capital can be redeemable or irredeemable.

41
Cost of Equity Capital
Minimum rate of return that a firm must earn on the
equity-financed portion of an investment project in
order to leave unchanged the market price of the shares
Equity capital can be raised:
internally by retained earnings
or
the firm can distribute dividends & raise capital by new
issue of equity shares
In both the cases the shareholders are providing funds
to the firms to finance their capital expenditures
Equity shareholders required rate of return would be
same
42
Example
A firm accepts an investment project involving an outlay
of Rs. 1000 which is to financed by equity & debt in the
ratio of 75:25. The project will earn Rs. 110 every year.
Required rate of return on equity is 12% and cost of debt
is 8%.

If the project earns less than Rs. 110, it would give a
return less than that required by investors leading to
decline in market price of shares.
This rate is the cost of equity
43
Rs.
Total Return
Less: Interest on debt 25% * 1000 * 8%

20
Amount available to equity shareholders 90
Rate of return on equity = Rs. 90/750 * 100 = 12%
Is equity capital free of cost?
It is often said the equity shares have no cost of
capital no fixed rate of dividend, no commitment to
pay such dividend (sole discretion of the BoD), such
shareholders are the last claimants on the profits of
the company.
But equity capital has a cost - involves opportunity
cost; ordinary shareholders provide funds to the firm
in expectation of dividends and capital gains
44
Difficulties in determining equity
investors rate of return
Two difficulties involved:
Difficult to estimate dividend payments
Depends upon company policy & strategic decisions
Cannot be estimated correctly & they grow over time
Difficult to estimate capital gains
Depends upon market conditions & investors
perceptions, which are difficult to forecast.re expected
to grow
45
Approaches to calculate
cost of equity
To overcome the difficulties, two widely
used approaches are used :
1. Dividend Approach
2. Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)
Approach
46
Dividend Approach
Based on the dividend valuation model which assumes
that the value of a share (current market price of a
share) equals the present value of all future dividends
that it is expected to provide over an indefinite period.

Dividend Growth Model
Cost of Retained Earnings
A firms internal equity consist of its retained earnings.
The opportunity cost of the retained earnings is the
rate of return foregone by equity shareholders.
The shareholders generally expect dividend and capital
gain from their investment.
The required rate of return of shareholders can be
determined from the dividend valuation model
50
If the firm had distributed earnings to shareholders,
they could have invested it in the shares of the firm or
in the shares of other firms of similar risk at the
market price (P
0
) to earn a rate of return equal to k
e
Thus the firm should earn a return on retained funds
equal to k
e
to ensure growth of dividends & share
prices.
If a return less than k
e
is earned on retained earnings,
the market price of the firms share will fall.

Growth in earnings arises because a company increases
its investments and obtains a greater earnings.
Higher growth can be obtained through greater
retained earnings and investments in more profitable
assets
Thus, g = r * b
Where
r = rate of return obtained on new investment
b = retention ratio i.e. proportion of earnings retained
62
Current Retained Earnings
Example
The latest earnings and dividends of a company are Rs.
37 and Rs. 16 respectively. The expected rate of return
on new investment is 18%. Calculate expected growth
rate.
b = (37-16)/37 = 0.57
g = r * b
= 0.18 * 0.57

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)
Also called Composite cost of capital or Overall cost of
capital
It is the rate of return that must be earned by the firm
in order to satisfy the requirements of the different
investors.

costs to get the
WACC.
WACC Vs Simple Average CC
WACC gives consideration to the proportion of various
sources of funds in the capital structure in a company,
which simple average does not.
71
Why WACC ?
Overall cost of capital is of utmost importance as this
rate is to be considered while deciding the optimal
financing mix for the firm and is to be used as the
discount rate or cut-off rate while evaluating the
capital budgeting proposals.
This overall CoC is calculated using WACC
72

Which weights to use?
The question is which weights to use
Should we use the values given in the balance sheet,
which reflects the historical values of the amounts of
funds raised from various sources?
OR
Should we use the market values of the various claims?
75
Weights used -
Historical or existing weights
1. Book Value
2. Market Value
76
Book -Value Weights
Weights based on the actual or existing proportions of
different sources in the overall capital structure.
Readily available from published records of the firm
balance sheet which lists the long-term debts, equity &
preference capitals
The book value debtequity ratios are analysed by
investors to evaluate the risk of the firms in
practice
77
Book-value Weights (contd)
Source Total book value % of total
Long term debt Rs. 400,000 40%
Preference capital Rs. 100,000 10%
Equity capital Rs. 500,000 50%
Grand Totals Rs. 10,00,000 100%
78
The following table shows the calculation of the
book-value weights for Cost of Capital:
Market-value Weights
The problem with book-value weights is that the book
values are historical, not current values
The market recalculates the values of each type of
capital on a continuous basis. Therefore, market
values are more appropriate
Calculation of market-value weights is very similar to
the calculation of the book-value weights
The main difference is that we need to first calculate
the total market value (price * quantity) of each type
of capital
Market Value of Retained Earnings
Can be indirectly estimated.
Since retained earnings are treated as equity capital for
the purpose of calculation of specific cost of capital,
the market value of the ordinary shares may be taken
to represent the combined market value of equity
shares & retained earnings.
Separate market values of retained earnings & ordinary
shares allocated based on ratio of their book
values

A firm finances all its investments by 40% debt & 60%
equity. The estimated required rate of return on equity
is 20% after taxes and that of debt is 8% after taxes.
The firm is considering an investment proposal
costing Rs. 40,000 with an expected return that will
last forever. What amount must the proposal yield per
year so that the market price of the share does not
changes? Show calculations to prove your point.

A limited company has the following capital structure :

The market price of the companys equity share is Rs. 20. It is expected
that the company will pay a dividend of Rs. 2 per share at the end of the
current year, which will grow at & 7% forever. The tax rate may be
presumes at 50%. Compute the following:
a) A weighted average cost of capital based on the existing capital
structure
b) The new WACC if the company raises additional Rs. 20,00,000 debt by
issuing 10% debentures. This would result in increasing the expected
dividend to Rs. 3 and leave the growth rate unchanged but the prices of
share will fall to Rs. 15 per share.
c) The cost of equity capital if in (b) above, the growth rate increases to
10%
