A1 of 3 Formulas involved on the WACC calculations Corporate Finance - MBA 2009 Note written by Prof. Carles Vergara-Alert & Prof. Pedro Safﬁ 1 Objective This note tries to clarify the different assumptions and formulas used to calculate the Weighted Average Cost Of Capital (WACC) that you will ﬁnd in different textbooks and articles. 2 The WACC formula The WACC formula is a weigthed average of the cost of equity and the after-tax cost of debt: W ACC = E D+E RE + D D+E (1 − τ )RD (1) being RE the cost of equity, RD the cost of debt, τ the corporate tax, E the market value of the ﬁrm’s equity, and D the market value of the ﬁrm’s debt. Note that sometimes we call V to the sum of D and E, therefore, V = D + E. Sometimes, not all the ﬁnancing is provided by debt and equity. As an example, let us assume that some ﬁnancing is provided by preferred stock as well as equity and debt. The WACC formula has to be modiﬁed to include the main sources of long-term ﬁnancing of the ﬁrm such as preferred stock: W ACC = E D P RE + (1 − τ )RD + RP D+E+P D+E+P D+E+P where RP is the cost of preferred stock and P is the market value of the ﬁrm’s preferred stock.
