Vélez-Pareja and Tham, 2003a, Vélez-Pareja and Tham, 2003b and Tham and Vélez-Pareja, 2004 showed the matching between discounted cash flow (DCF) methods and value added methods. They departed from the net operating profit less adjusted taxes NOPLAT and net income when using market values to calculate the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) and the cost of levered equity, Ke. In those previous works they assumed that the proper discount rate for the tax savings is the unlevered cost of equity, Ku. We assume the same discount rate in this paper. The previous procedures implied circularity between the cost of capital and the levered values. In this paper we show that the same firm values can be obtained using the cost of unlevered equity, Ku and the net income and the interest charges. No circularity is found using this procedure. This article is based upon Vélez-Pareja and Tham 2004.
