East and Southern Europe), India, parts of South America, Southwest U.S./northern Mexico and
Australia. The operating characteristics of STPPs are relatively well matched with the
intermediate and peak electricity load requirements in these regions.
Two types of collectors have been used in STPPs: parabolic trough and central receiver.
Electricity is generated by incorporating the solar collectors with a Rankine cycle power plant or
as an add-on to a natural gas combined cycle (referred to as an ISCCS).

Strategic Corporate Finance provides a ‘‘real-world’’ application of the
principles of modern corporate finance, with a practical, investment
banking advisory perspective. Building on 15 years of corporate finance
advisory experience, this book serves to bridge the chronic gap between
corporate finance theory and practice. Topics range from weighted average
cost of capital, value-based management and M&A, to optimal capital
structure, risk management and dividend/buyback policy.

In a decentralized-decisions economy under uncertainty, the financial system can be seen as
the complex of institutions, infrastructure, and instruments that the society adopts to minimize the
costs of transacting promises under agents’ incomplete trust and limited information. Building on a
microeconomic, general equilibrium model that portrays such fundamental function of finance, this
study analytically shows that, in line with recent empirical evidence, the development of financial
infrastructure stimulates larger and more efficient capital industrial accumulation.
Chapter 1 introduces the concept of capital budgeting, and sets out the structure of the book.
The important points are:
Capital budgeting is the most significant financial activity of the firm.
Capital budgeting determines the core activities of the firm over a long term future.
Capital budgeting decisions must be made carefully and rationally.
One issue with using portfolio holdings to evaluate fund performance
is that the disclosed data reveal information about the major equity
positions at particular dates but do not indicate the exact purchase
and sale dates. As a result, the exact holding period of securities is
unknown. Furthermore, some funds may window-dress their portfolios
to hide their actual investment strategy from their investors or from
competing funds, as shown byMeier and Schaumburg (2004).
Abstract Most finance textbooks present the Weighted Average Cost of Capital WACC calculation as: WACC = Kd×(1-T)×D% + Ke×E% (1) Where Kd is the cost of debt before taxes, T is the tax rate, D% is the percentage of debt on total value, Ke is the cost of equity and E% is the percentage of equity on total value. All of them precise (but not with enough emphasis) that the values to calculate D% y E% are market values. Although they devote special space and thought to calculate Kd and Ke,

Our study investigates how ultimate ownership structure and the corporate tax rate affect the equilibrium trade-off relation between manager ownership and debt in reducing agency costs. Considering the presence of the controlling shareholder, we find that higher corporate tax
rates strengthen the trade-off relation between manager ownership and debt while higher
control rights held by the controlling shareholder weaken it as well as the strengthening effect
of corporate tax rate.
