  • 5. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-5 Major Areas & Opportunities in Finance: Financial Services • Financial Services is the area of finance concerned with the design and delivery of advice and financial products to individuals, businesses, and government. • Career opportunities include banking, personal financial planning, investments, real estate, and insurance.
  • 6. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-6 Major Areas & Opportunities in Finance: Managerial Finance • Managerial finance is concerned with the duties of the financial manager in the business firm. • The financial manager actively manages the financial affairs of any type of business, whether private or public, large or small, profit-seeking or not-for-profit. • They perform varied financial tasks as planning, extending credit to customers, evaluating proposed large expenditures, and raising money to fund the firm’s operations. • They are also more involved in developing corporate strategy and improving the firm’s competitive position.
  • 7. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-7 Major Areas & Opportunities in Finance: Managerial Finance (cont.) • Increasing globalization has complicated the financial management function by requiring them to be proficient in managing cash flows in different currencies and protecting against the risks inherent in international transactions. • Changing economic and regulatory conditions also complicate the financial management function.
  • 8. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-8 Legal Forms of Business Organization
  • 9. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-9 Corporate Organization

  • 11. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-11 The Managerial Finance Function The Managerial Finance Function can be broadly described by considering its role within  The organization  Its relationship to economics  Relationship to accounting  And the primary activities of the financial manager
  • 12. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-12 The Managerial Finance Function Organization of the finance function: • The size and importance of the managerial finance function depends on the size of the firm. • In small companies, the finance function may be performed by the company president or accounting department. • As the business expands, finance typically evolves into a separate department linked to the president as was previously described in Figure 1.1.
  • 13. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-13 The Managerial Finance Function: Relationship to Economics • The field of finance is actually an outgrowth of economics. • In fact, finance is sometimes referred to as financial economics. • Financial managers must understand the economic framework within which they operate in order to react or anticipate to changes in conditions.
  • 14. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-14 The Managerial Finance Function: Relationship to Economics (cont.) • The primary economic principal used by financial managers is marginal cost- benefit analysis which says that financial decisions should be implemented only when added benefits exceed added costs.
  • 15. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-15 The Managerial Finance Function: Relationship to Accounting • The firm’s finance (treasurer) and accounting (controller) functions are closely-related and overlapping. • In smaller firms, the financial manager generally performs both functions.
  • 16. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-16 The Managerial Finance Function: Relationship to Accounting (cont.) • One major difference in perspective and emphasis between finance and accounting is that accountants generally use the accrual method while in finance, the focus is on cash flows. • The significance of this difference can be illustrated using the following simple example.
  • 17. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-17 Sales $100,000 (1 yacht sold, 100% still uncollected) Costs $ 80,000 (all paid in full under supplier terms) The Managerial Finance Function: Relationship to Accounting (cont.) • The Nassau Corporation experienced the following activity last year: • Now contrast the differences in performance under the accounting method versus the cash method.
  • 18. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-18 INCOME STATEMENT SUMMARY ACCRUAL CASH Sales $100,000 $ 0 Less: Costs (80,000) (80,000) Net Profit/(Loss) $ 20,000 $(80,000) The Managerial Finance Function: Relationship to Accounting (cont.)
  • 19. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-19 The Managerial Finance Function: Relationship to Accounting (cont.) • Finance and accounting also differ with respect to decision-making. • While accounting is primarily concerned with the presentation of financial data, the financial manager is primarily concerned with analyzing and interpreting this information for decision- making purposes. • The financial manager uses this data as a vital tool for making decisions about the financial aspects of the firm.
  • 20. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-20 Primary Activities of the Financial Manager
  • 21. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-21 Investment Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Total (years 1-3) Rotor 1.40$ 1.00$ 0.40$ 2.80$ Valve 0.60$ 1.00$ 1.40$ 3.00$ Earnings per share (EPS) Which Investment is Preferred? Goal of the Firm: Maximize Profit??? • Profit maximization fails to account for differences in the level of cash flows (as opposed to profits), the timing of these cash flows, and the risk of these cash flows.
  • 22. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-22 Share Price = Future Dividends Required Return level & timing of cash flows risk of cash flows Goal of the Firm: Maximize Shareholder Wealth!!! • Why? • Because maximizing shareholder wealth properly considers cash flows, the timing of these cash flows, and the risk of these cash flows. • This can be illustrated using the following simple stock valuation equation:
  • 23. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-23 Goal of the Firm: Maximize Shareholder Wealth!!! (cont.) • The process of shareholder wealth maximization can be described using the following flow chart:
  • 24. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-24 Goal of the Firm: What About Other Stakeholders? • Stakeholders include all groups of individuals who have a direct economic link to the firm including employees, customers, suppliers, creditors, owners, and others who have a direct economic link to the firm. • The "Stakeholder View" prescribes that the firm make a conscious effort to avoid actions that could be detrimental to the wealth position of its stakeholders. • Such a view is considered to be "socially responsible."
  • 25. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-25 Corporate Governance • Corporate Governance is the system used to direct and control a corporation. • It defines the rights and responsibilities of key corporate participants such as shareholders, the board of directors, officers and managers, and other stakeholders. • The structure of corporate governance was previously described in Figure 1.1.
  • 26. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-26 Individual versus Institutional Investors • Individual investors are investors who purchase relatively small quantities of shares in order to earn a return on idle funds, build a source of retirement income, or provide financial security. • Institutional investors are investment professionals who are paid to manage other people’s money. • They hold and trade large quantities of securities for individuals, businesses, and governments and tend to have a much greater impact on corporate governance.
  • 27. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-27 The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 • The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (commonly called SOX) eliminated many disclosure and conflict of interest problems that surfaced during the early 2000s. • SOX: – established an oversight board to monitor the accounting industry; – tightened audit regulations and controls; – toughened penalties against executives who commit corporate fraud; – strengthened accounting disclosure requirements; – established corporate board structure guidelines.
  • 28. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-28 The Role of Ethics: Ethics Defined • Ethics is the standards of conduct or moral judgment—have become an overriding issue in both our society and the financial community • Ethical violations attract widespread publicity • Negative publicity often leads to negative impacts on a firm
  • 29. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-29 The Role of Ethics: Considering Ethics • Robert A. Cooke, a noted ethicist, suggests that the following questions be used to assess the ethical viability of a proposed action: – Does the action unfairly single out an individual or group? – Does the action affect the morals, or legal rights of any individual or group? – Does the action conform to accepted moral standards? – Are there alternative courses of action that are less likely to cause actual or potential harm?
  • 30. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-30 The Role of Ethics: Considering Ethics (cont.) • Cooke suggests that the impact of a proposed decision should be evaluated from a number of perspectives: – Are the rights of any stakeholder being violated? – Does the firm have any overriding duties to any stakeholder? – Will the decision benefit any stakeholder to the detriment of another stakeholder? – If there is a detriment to any stakeholder, how should it be remedied, if at all? – What is the relationship between stockholders and stakeholders?
  • 31. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-31 The Role of Ethics: Ethics & Share Price • Ethics programs seek to: – reduce litigation and judgment costs – maintain a positive corporate image – build shareholder confidence – gain the loyalty and respect of all stakeholders • The expected result of such programs is to positively affect the firm's share price.
  • 32. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-32 The Agency Issue: The Agency Problem • Whenever a manager owns less than 100% of the firm’s equity, a potential agency problem exists. • In theory, managers would agree with shareholder wealth maximization. • However, managers are also concerned with their personal wealth, job security, fringe benefits, and lifestyle. • This would cause managers to act in ways that do not always benefit the firm shareholders.
  • 33. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-33 The Agency Issue: Resolving the Problem • Market Forces such as major shareholders and the threat of a hostile takeover act to keep managers in check. • Agency Costs are the costs borne by stockholders to maintain a corporate governance structure that minimizes agency problems and contributes to the maximization of shareholder wealth.
  • 34. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-34 The Agency Issue: Resolving the Problem (cont.) • Examples would include bonding or monitoring management behavior, and structuring management compensation to make shareholders interests their own. • A stock option is an incentive allowing managers to purchase stock at the market price set at the time of the grant.
  • 35. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-35 The Agency Issue: Resolving the Problem (cont.) • Performance plans tie management compensation to measures such as EPS growth; performance shares and/or cash bonuses are used as compensation under these plans. • Recent studies have failed to find a strong relationship between CEO compensation and share price.
  • 36. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-36 Financial Institutions & Markets • Firms that require funds from external sources can obtain them in three ways: – through a bank or other financial institution – through financial markets – through private placements
  • 37. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-37 Financial Institutions & Markets: Financial Institutions • Financial institutions are intermediaries that channel the savings of individuals, businesses, and governments into loans or investments. • The key suppliers and demanders of funds are individuals, businesses, and governments. • In general, individuals are net suppliers of funds, while businesses and governments are net demanders of funds.
  • 38. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-38 Financial Institutions & Markets: Financial Markets • Financial markets provide a forum in which suppliers of funds and demanders of funds can transact business directly. • The two key financial markets are the money market and the capital market. • Transactions in short term marketable securities take place in the money market while transactions in long-term securities take place in the capital market.
  • 39. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-39 Financial Institutions & Markets: Financial Markets (cont.) • Whether subsequently traded in the money or capital market, securities are first issued through the primary market. • The primary market is the only one in which a corporation or government is directly involved in and receives the proceeds from the transaction. • Once issued, securities then trade on the secondary markets such as the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ.
  • 40. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-40 The Relationship between Financial Institutions and Financial Markets
  • 41. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-41 The Money Market • The money market exists as a result of the interaction between the suppliers and demanders of short-term funds (those having a maturity of a year or less). • Most money market transactions are made in marketable securities which are short-term debt instruments such as T-bills and commercial paper. • Money market transactions can be executed directly or through an intermediary.
  • 42. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-42 The Money Market (cont.) • The international equivalent of the domestic (U.S.) money market is the Eurocurrency market. • The Eurocurrency market is a market for short-term bank deposits denominated in U.S. dollars or other marketable currencies. • The Eurocurrency market has grown rapidly mainly because it is unregulated and because it meets the needs of international borrowers and lenders.
  • 43. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-43 The Capital Market • The capital market is a market that enables suppliers and demanders of long-term funds to make transactions. • The key capital market securities are bonds (long-term debt) and both common and preferred stock (equity). • Bonds are long-term debt instruments used by businesses and government to raise large sums of money or capital. • Common stock are units of ownership interest or equity in a corporation.
  • 44. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-44 Major Securities Exchanges: Organized Exchanges • Organized securities exchanges are tangible secondary markets where outstanding securities are bought and sold. • They account for about 46% of the total dollar volume of domestic shares traded. • Only the largest and most profitable companies meet the requirements necessary to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
  • 45. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-45 Major Securities Exchanges: Organized Exchanges (cont.) • Only those that own a seat on the exchange can make transactions on the floor (there are currently 1,366 seats). • Trading is conducted through an auction process where specialists “make a market” in selected securities. • As compensation for executing orders, specialists make money on the spread (bid price – ask price).
  • 46. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-46 Major Securities Exchanges: Over-the-Counter Exchange • The over-the-counter (OTC) market is an intangible market for securities transactions. • Unlike organized exchanges, the OTC is both a primary market and a secondary market. • The OTC is a computer-based market where dealers make a market in selected securities and are linked to buyers and sellers through the NASDAQ System. • Dealers also make money on the “spread.”
  • 47. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-47 Major Securities Exchanges: International Capital Markets • In the Eurobond market, corporations and governments typically issue bonds denominated in dollars and sell them to investors located outside the United States. • The foreign bond market is a market for foreign bonds, which are bonds issued by a foreign corporation or government that is denominated in the investor’s home currency and sold in the investor’s home market.
  • 48. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-48 Major Securities Exchanges: International Capital Markets (cont.) • Finally, the international equity market allows corporations to sell blocks of shares to investors in a number of different countries simultaneously. • This market enables corporations to raise far larger amounts of capital than they could raise in any single national market.
  • 49. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-49 Business Taxes • Both individuals and businesses must pay taxes on income. • The income of sole proprietorships and partnerships is taxed as the income of the individual owners, whereas corporate income is subject to corporate taxes. • Both individuals and businesses can earn two types of income—ordinary income and capital gains income. • Under current law, tax treatment of ordinary income and capital gains income change frequently due frequently changing tax laws.
  • 50. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-50 Example Calculate federal income taxes due if taxable income is $80,000. Tax = .15 ($50,000) + .25 ($25,000) + .34 ($80,000 - $75,000) Tax = $15,450 Business Taxes: Ordinary Income • Ordinary income is earned through the sale of a firm’s goods or services and is taxed at the rates depicted in Table 1.4 on the following slide.
  • 51. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-51 Business Taxation: Ordinary Income
  • 52. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-52 Example What is the marginal and average tax rate for the previous example? Marginal Tax Rate = 34% Average Tax Rate = $15,450/$80,000 = 19.31% Business Taxation: Average & Marginal Tax Rates • A firm’s marginal tax rate represents the rate at which additional income is taxed. • The average tax rate is the firm’s taxes divided by taxable income.
  • 53. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-53 Business Taxation: Tax on Interest & Dividend Income • For corporations only, 70% of all dividend income received from an investment in the stock of another corporation in which the firm has less than 20% ownership is excluded from taxation. • This exclusion is provided to avoid triple taxation for corporations. • Unlike dividend income, all interest income received is fully taxed.
  • 54. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-54 Example Two companies, Debt Co. and No Debt Co., both expect in the coming year to have EBIT of $200,000. During the year, Debt Co. will have to pay $30,000 in interest expenses. No Debt Co. has no debt and will pay not interest expenses. Business Taxation: Debt versus Equity Financing • In calculating taxes, corporations may deduct operating expenses and interest expense but not dividends paid. • This creates a built-in tax advantage for using debt financing as the following example will demonstrate.
  • 55. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-55 Business Taxation: Debt versus Equity Financing (cont.)
  • 56. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-56 Business Taxation: Debt versus Equity Financing (cont.) • As the example shows, the use of debt financing can increase cash flow and EPS, and decrease taxes paid. • The tax deductibility of interest and other certain expenses reduces their actual (after-tax) cost to the profitable firm. • It is the non-deductibility of dividends paid that results in double taxation under the corporate form of organization.
  • 57. Copyright © 2006 Pearson Addison-Wesley. All rights reserved. 1-57 Business Taxation: Capital Gains • A capital gain results when a firm sells an asset such as a stock held as an investment for more than its initial purchase price. • The difference between the sales price and the purchase price is called a capital gain. • For corporations, capital gains are added to ordinary income and taxed like ordinary income at the firm’s marginal tax rate.
