EFFECT OF CAPITAL STRUCTURE ON BUSINESS VALUATION USING VARIOUS DCF METHODS
Income valuation is a fundamental valuation approach. One question still open is the discount rate calculation. One factor impacting the discount rate is a capital structure. Nevertheless, the structure has to be in market values. It means that the knowledge of the result is a precondition for the calculation. The solution lies in an iterative technique based on recursive progress. It is also necessary to select suitable reagency functions expressing relations between equity cost and leverage ratio. The traditional reagency function is employed according to MMII, whereas the modified reagency function is derived by other authors. In addition, the article analyzes main factors impacting the size of error arising when discount rate calculation using a DCF method is not based on capital structure in market values. This analysis is made for both MM and modified reagency functions.
