A similar firm with no debt should have a smaller valu(e) Here is the calculation:
VTotal = VU + VTS, so VU = VTotal - VTS = D + S - VTS.
Value tax shelter = VTS = rdTD/(rsU - g) = 0.09(0.40)($200,000)/(0.12 - 0.05) = $102,857
VU = $300,000 + $200,000 - $102,857 = $397,143 | | | | Points Received: | 20 of 20 | | Comments: | | | | 5. | Question : | (TCO A) Which of the following statements is CORRECT?
