 partnership  agreement  says  how   management  decisions  will  be  made,  the  proportion  of  profits  that  will  go  to  each  p artner;  partners  pay  tax  on   personal  level  for  their  share  of  profits   -­‐ Sole  proprietorships  and  partnerships  =  flow  through  entities  b/c  they  don’t  pay  income  tax  on  operating  profits  and   don’t  file  tax  returns  (corporations  not  the  same)   -­‐ Limited  partnership  partners  are  classified  as  general  or  limited   –  general  manage  the  business  and  have  unlimited   liability,  limited-­‐  liable  only  for  the  $  contributed  and  can’t  take  part  in  the  day -­‐to-­‐day  management  of  the   partnership   -­‐ LLP  (limited  liability  partnership)  is  where  both  partners  have  limited  liability     -­‐ A  Professional  corporation  (PC)  is  used  commonly  by  doctors,  lawyers,  accountants   –  limited  liability,  taxed  like  a   corporation,  still  can  be  sued  personally   -­‐ Income  trust  which  is  an  investment  fund     -­‐  called  mutual  fund  trust  –  they  sell  units  to  investors  to  raise  $  to  buy   shares  and  debts  of  operating  businesses;  flow -­‐through  entities;  income  trust  only  invests  in  1  company,  so  a  unit  of   one  is  similar  to  a  share;  this  is  a  smart  way  to   ↓  taxes  paid  by  the  underlying  business  enterprise;  it  allows  a   corporation  to  be  financed  by  a  ton  of  debt  which  lowers  the  amount  of  taxes  that  need  to  be  pay;  CDN  federal   government  changed  the  tax  rule  in  2006  because  they  feared  the  loss  of  tax  revenue  from  compa nies  using  this  to   pay  less  taxes   -­‐ Capital  budgeting  decision  or  investment  decision  is  the  decision  as  to  which  real  assets  the  firm  should  acquire -­‐   the  financial  manager  values  on  different  investment  opportunities  based  on  the  amounts,  timing  and  risk  of  the   future  cash  flows.  To  be  an  attractive  investment  the  opportunity’s  value  must  exceed  the  current  investment  it   requires.  An  investment  decision  can  literally  be  as  simple  as  buying  a  truck.   -­‐ Financing  decision  is  the  decision  about  how  the  $  to  pay  for  investments  will  be  raised.    It  can  happen  in  2  ways:  by   selling  shares  (equity  financing)  or  by  borrowing  (debt  financing).  Capital  structure  is  the  distribution  of  financing   between  these  two  different  methods  of  obtaining  $.  Capital  structure,  ‘raisin g  capital’  -­‐>  long  term  financing;

 purchases  +  sales  of  existing  securities  b/w  investors   are  secondary  transactions  and  they  take  place  in  the   secondary  market   -­‐ Stock  markets  are  called  equity  markets   -­‐ Debt  securities  are  also  traded  in  financial  markets;  fixed-­‐income  market  is  the  market  for  debt  securities;  the  markets   for  long-­‐term  debt  and  equity  are  called  capital  markets;  short  term  securities  (<1  year)  are  traded  in  the  money  markets   -­‐ Other  markets  include:  Foreign -­‐exchange  market  (FOREX),  commodities  market,  markets  for  options  and  other   derivatives  (derivatives  are  securities  whose  payouts  are  contingent  on  the  price(s)  of  other  securities/  commodities   -­‐ A  financial  intermediary  is  an  organization  that  raises  $  from  investors  and  provides  financing  for  individuals,   corporations  or  other  organizations;  5  kinds:   1. Mutual  funds  and  ETFs:   mutual  funds  are  managed  investment  funds  that  pool  the  savings  of  many  investors  and   invest  the  $  in  a  portfolio  of  securities;  an  exchange  traded  fun  is  an  investment  fund  that’s  traded  on  a  stock   exchange-­‐  it  pools  the  savings  of  many  investors  and  invests  in  a  portfolio  of  securities  that  is  selected  to  replicate   am  established  securities  index;  Mutual  funds  =  actively  managed  (managers  try  to  like  beat  the  market   inefficiencies  that  exist  in  the  short  term);  ETFs  and  some  mutual  funds  are  passively  managed ;  fund  managers  get   commission  for  their  services;  mutual  funds  and  ETFs  allow  for  low  cost  diversification  and  professional   management   2. Hedge  funds  (like  mutual  funds)  get  $  from  investors  then  invest  in  a  portfolio  of  securities;  they  usually  use   untraditional  investment  strategies  (i.e.  short  positions,  arbitrage,  leverage,  options,  futures  and  other  financial   instruments  that  are  aimed  at  capitalizing  on  market  conditions);  some  are  only  opened  to  super  rich  and  smart   investors   3. Private  equity  funds  are  investment  funds  focused  on  investing  in  equity  of  privately  owned  businesses;  often  they   provide  financing  +  help  nurture  growing/troubl ed  companies  towards  stable  &  long  term  growth   4. Pension  fund  is  an  investment  plan  that  one’s  employer  sets  up  to  provide  for  his/her  employees’  retirements.   Defined  contribution  plan   –each  employee  owns  a  portion  of  the  pension  funds  and  accumulates  an  inv estment   balance  for  when  they  retire  (balance  depends  on  their  accumulated  contributions  +  the  performance  of  the  fund).   Defined  benefit  plan  –employer  promises  a  certain  level  of  benefits  when  the  employee  retires  and  the  employer   invests  in  the  pension  plan.  If  the  investment  value  <  promised  benefits  –  the  employer  must  contribute  more   -­‐ Financial  institutions  like  banks,  insurance  companies,  or  similar  financial  intermediaries;  they  d on’t  only  invest  in   securities-­‐  they  also  loan  $  directly  to  businesses,  individuals  and  other  organizations   -­‐ Functions  of  financial  markets  and  intermediaries :   -­‐ Transporting  $  across  time   -­‐ Risk  transfer  and  diversification   -­‐ Liquidity  (the  ability  to  sell  or  exchange  an  asset  for  cash  on  short  notice,  shares  of  public  companies  ar e  liquid   because  they’re  traded  more  or  less  continuously)   –  foreign-­‐exchange  markets,  government  securities  =  liquid   -­‐ The  payment  mechanism:  things  like  credit  cards  +  electronic  transfers  let  people  &  organizations  send  and  receive   payments  fast  and  over  long  distances   -­‐ Information  provided  by  financial  markets  –  for  example:   • A  CFO  can  find  commodity  prices  for  a  given  day  on  the  NYSE  and  budget  that  amount   • When  looking  for  financing   –  a  CFO  can  look  up  average  interest  rates  on  existing  Canada  bonds  traded  in   financial  markets   • To  value  the  entire  company,  or  the   enterprise  value,  add  the  value  of  the  company’s  debt  to  its  stock  value   – stock  prices  and  company  values  sum  up  the  collective  assessment  of  investors  about  how  well  a  company  is   doing  in  the  present  and  how  well  they  think  it’ll  do  in  the  future   -­‐ Value  maximization  →  there  are  always  those  investors  who  are  willing  to  take  on  the  risk  associated  with  risky   investments  (as  long  as  the  potential  upside  is  reasonable  to  them   –i.e.  the  interest  rate  they’ll  receive  is  high  enough)   -­‐ The  opportunity  cost  of  capital   Page  4  of  23   FINE2000   Midterm  Notes        Jessica  Gahtan   • Cost  of  capital  is  the  minimum  acceptable  rate  of  return  on  capital  investment   –  if  a  project  offers  a  higher  rate  of   return,  it  adds  value  to  the  firm;  a  ‘superior  rate  of  return’  refers  to  when  a  project  offers  a  better  rate  of  return   than  a  project  with  a  similar  amount  of  risk   • Expected  rates  of  return  determine  the  cost  of  capital  for  corporate  investments   • The  cost  of  capital  for  corporate  investment  is  set  by  the  rates  of  return  on  investment  opportunities  in  financial   markets.   • When  a  firm  invests  its  savings  i n  whatever,  the  shareholders  lose  the  opportunity  to  invest  in  something  else  (this   raises  the  cost  of  capital)   • The  riskier  an  investment  is,  the  higher  the  interest  rate/  expected  return           Page  5  of  23   FINE2000   Midterm  Notes        Jessica  Gahtan   Chapter  3   -­‐ The  Balance  Sheet  is  a  f/s  that  shows  the  value  of  a  firm’s  assets  and  liabilities  at  a  given  point  in  time   • Current  assets  are  those  which  are  likely  to  be  converted  into  cash  within  1  year   • Long-­‐term  assets  can  be  things  like  tangible  capital  assets/fixed  assets  (i.e.  buildings,  equipment)  or  investments  in   other  companies  (ownership  of  another  business)  or  goodwill  &  other  intangibles  →  on  the  other  side  of  the  b/s   there  are  liabilities.  Whatever  amount  is  leftover  when  you  subtract  liabilities  from  assets  is   your  shareholders’   equity   ' Shareholders equity=total  assets-­‐total  liabilities   -­‐ Book  v.  Market  Value   • GAAP  has  rules  that  relate  to  the  way  you  should  prepare  your  financial  statements   • Book  value  is  the  net  worth  of  the  firm  according  to  the  B/S  →  Based  on  historical  cost  →  market  values  ≠  book   values  →  Market  values  measure  current  values  of  assets  +  liabilities.   • Shareholders’  equity  is  likely  to  demonstrate  the  largest  difference  in  terms  of  comparing  book  and  market  value   • ‘Market-­‐value  balance  sheet’  is  forward  looking  and  it  depends  on  the  benefits  that  sh areholders  expect  the  assets   to  have   • The  stock  price  is  the  market  value  of  the  shareholders’  equity  divided  by  the  #  of  outstanding  shares     Note:  Usually  shares  of  stock  sell  for  more  than  the  book  value   -­‐ Income  Statement  is  the  f/s  that  shows  revenues,  expenses,  net  income  of  a  firm  over  a  period  of  time  (usually  1  year)   -­‐ Three  reasons  why  profits  ≠  cash  flow:   1. To  calculate  the  cash  produced  by  the  business,  you  need  to  add  the  depreciation  expense  (which  isn’t  a  cash   payment)  and  subtract  the  expenditure   on  capital  equipment  (which  is  a  capital  payment)   2. The  cash  that  the  company  receives  is  equal  to  the  sales  shown  in  the  I/S  minus  the   ↑  in  unpaid  bills  (A/R)   3. The  cash  outflow  =  COGS,  which  is  shown  in  the  I/S  +  the   ∆  in  inventories   -­‐ Statement  of  cash  flows  (Shows  the  firm’s  cash  inflows  +  outflows  from  operations,  financing  and  investment  activities)   • Cash  from  operating  activities   • Cash  from  investing  activities  (includes  purchases  of  new  capital  equipment,  investments)   • Cash  from  financing  activities  (includes  debt  payments,  new  debt,  selling  of  stock,  dividend  payments)     Cash  flow  from  operating  activities=   Net  earnings+  depreciation+  cash  from  other  income  statement  adjustments+  cash  from  non -­‐cash  working  capital     Cash  flow  from  assets  (free  cash  flow)=  cash  provided  by  operating  activities+  cash  flow  from  investments     Increase  (decrease)  in  cash  in  the  bank  =  cash  flow  from  assets+  cash  flow  from  financing  activities       -­‐ Fundamental  cash  flow  identity:     Cash  flow  from  assets  =  Increase  (decrease)  in  cash  in  the  bank  +  cash  flow  from  financing  activities   “Free  cash  flow”  b/c  the  $  is  available  for  payouts  to  bondholders  and  shareholders     -­‐ Financing  flow   • Cash  flow  to  bondholders  and  stockholders  plus  increas es  in  cash  balances,  also  equals  cash  flow  to  assets   • Interest  expense  should  be  considered  financing  activity  so  that  you  have  a  better  idea  of  cash  flows  generated  by   the  assets  rather  than  including  the  way  that  a  firm  chooses  to  finance  itself   Cash  flow  from  assets  (adjusted)  =  cash  flow  from  assets  +  interest  expense   • Free  cash  flow  is  useful  when  you’re  doing  a  valuation  of  the  company’s  assets   -­‐ Accounting  (mal)  practice   • Can  alter  statements  i.e.  through  revenue  recognition,  allowance  for  bad  debts   • Sarbanes  Oxley  Act  in  2002  –  aimed  at  making  sure  statements  are  presented  accurately   • Foreign  firms  need  to  make  their  statements  in  accordance  with  Canadian  GAAP  before  they  can  be  listed  on  a   Canadian  stock  exchange   -­‐ Taxes   • Corporate  tax   Page  6  of  23   FINE2000   Midterm  Notes        Jessica  Gahtan    The  cost  of  depreciation  for  tax  purposes  is  found  in  the  income  tax  act   –  called  the  capital  cost  allowance   (CCA)      Company  can  deduct  interest  paid  to  debt  holders  when  calculating  taxable  income   –  but  dividends  aren’t   deductible    Losses  can  be  carried  forward  and  deducted  from   taxable  income  in  the  future   • Personal  tax    Marginal  tax  rate  is  the  additional  taxes  owed  per  dollar  of  additional  income      Most  provinces  –  progressive  tax  system  –  higher  income  =  higher  tax  rate  (Alberta  =  exception,  10%  for   all)    E.g.  of  progressive  system  –  15%  on  first  (for  example)  10$  then  22%  on  the  next  10$    Taxpayers  calculate  their  taxes  twice   –  once  for  federal  and  once  for  provincial    Average  tax  rate  is  the  total  taxes  owed  divided  by  total  income  –  differs  from  marginal  tax  rate    Tax  rates  are  relevant  for  financial  managers  b/c  if  their  share/bond  payments  are  heavily  taxed,   individuals  might  be  hesitant  to  buy  bonds  or  shares  or  w.e.    In  2006,  rules  categorized  dividends  as  eligible  and  non -­‐eligible    -­‐  effective  tax  rate  on  non-­‐eligible   dividends  =  higher  than  the  applicable  rate  on  eligible  dividends     Capital  gains  =  taxable  at  50%     →  capital  losses  can  be  used  to  reduce  your  capital  gains   →  if  you  don’t   have  capital  gains  to  offset  it,  you  can  carry  it  back  3  years  or  forward  indefinitely   to  reduce  capital  gains   in  another  year         Page  7  of  23   FINE2000   Midterm  Notes        Jessica  Gahtan   Chapter  4   Measuring  Market  Value  and  Market  Value  Added   • Market  capitalization:  total  market  value  of  equity,  equal  to  share  price  times  number  of  shares  outstanding     • Book  value  of  equity
