Abstract

In this note, we present a simple numerical example to illustrate the case where the growth rate for the Free Cash Flow (FCF) gU is greater than but different from the growth rate for the Cash Flow to Debt (CFD) gD. Here we assume that the value of the appropriate discount rate for the tax shield KTS equals the cost of debt KD.
