```I have a complex summation equation that I'm trying to simplify. However, I keep getting a number of error messages that I can't figure out.
the formula is as follows:

wacc = ((rf +\[Beta] ((1 + tax) (d/(d + e))) (rf - rm)) (e/(d +
e))) ((rf + (1 - (NormalPValue[(Log[(d/(d + e))]/((d/(d +
e)) - 1)) (1/stde)])) r) (d/(d + e)))
value = \!\(
UnderoverscriptBox[\(\(\ \)\(\[Sum]\)\), \(t = 1\), \(\[Infinity]\)]
\*FractionBox[\((ebitda \\_ t\ \((1 - tax)\))\), \(\((1 + wacc)\)^
t\)]\) + \!\(
\*UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Sum]\), \(t = 1\), \(\[Infinity]\)]
\*FractionBox[\(\((dep \\_ t)\)\ tax\), \(\((1 + wacc)\)^
t\)]\) - \!\(
\*UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Sum]\), \(t = 1\), \(n\)]
\*FractionBox[\(\((d \\_ 0 -
\*UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Sum]\), \(t =
1\), \(n\)]d \\_ \((t - 1)\))\) \((rf +
1 - \((NormalPValue[\((
\*FractionBox[\(Log[\((d/\((d + e)\))\)]\), \(\((d/\((d + e)\))\) -
1\)])\) \((
\*FractionBox[\(1\), \(stde\)])\)])\))\)
r \((1 - tax)\)\), \(\((1 + wacc)\)^t\)]\) - \!\(
\*UnderoverscriptBox[\(\[Sum]\), \(t = 1\), \(n\)]
\*FractionBox[\(d \\_ 0/n\), \(\((1 + wacc)\)^t\)]\) - kinv \_ 0

and I get the following error messages:

Syntax::sntxb: Expression cannot begin with "[ebitda \_t](1-tax)".
Syntax::sntxi: Incomplete expression; more input is needed.

I need help with this errors to be able to simplify this formula.
