After studying Chapter 13, you should be able to: Understand the payback period (PBP) method of project evaluation and selection, including its: (a) calculation; (b) acceptance criterion; (c) advantages and disadvantages; and (d) focus on liquidity rather than profitability. Understand the three major discounted cash flow (DCF) methods of project evaluation and selection – internal rate of return (IRR), net present value (NPV), and profitability index (PI). Explain the calculation, acceptance criterion, and advantages (over the PBP method) for each of the three major DCF methods. Define, construct, and interpret a graph called an “NPV profile.” Understand why ranking project proposals on the basis of IRR, NPV, and PI methods “may” lead to conflicts in ranking. Describe the situations where ranking projects may be necessary and justify when to use either IRR, NPV, or PI rankings. Understand how “sensitivity analysis” allows us to challenge the single-point input estimates used in traditional capital budgeting analysis. Explain the role and process of project monitoring, including “progress reviews” and “post-completion audits.”

Proposed Project Data:

Proposed Project Data Julie Miller is evaluating a new project for her firm, Basket Wonders (BW) . She has determined that the after-tax cash flows for the project will be $10,000; $12,000; $15,000; $10,000; and $7,000, respectively, for each of the Years 1 through 5 . The initial cash outlay will be $40,000 .

Independent Project:

Independent Project Independent -- A project whose acceptance (or rejection) does not prevent the acceptance of other projects under consideration. For this project, assume that it is independent of any other potential projects that Basket Wonders may undertake.

Payback Period (PBP):

Payback Period (PBP) PBP is the period of time required for the cumulative expected cash flows from an investment project to equal the initial cash outflow. 0 1 2 3 4 5 -40 K 10 K 12 K 15 K 10 K 7 K

Payback Solution (#1):

(c) 10 K 22 K 37 K 47 K 54 K Payback Solution (#1) PBP = a + ( b - c ) / d = 3 + ( 40 - 37 ) / 10 = 3 + ( 3 ) / 10 = 3.3 Years 0 1 2 3 4 5 -40 K 10 K 12 K 15 K 10 K 7 K Cumulative Inflows (a) ( -b ) (d)

Payback Solution (#2):

Payback Solution (#2) PBP = 3 + ( 3K ) / 10K = 3.3 Years Note: Take absolute value of last negative cumulative cash flow value. Cumulative Cash Flows -40 K 10 K 12 K 15 K 10 K 7 K 0 1 2 3 4 5 -40 K -30 K -18 K -3 K 7 K 14 K

PBP Acceptance Criterion:

PBP Acceptance Criterion Yes! The firm will receive back the initial cash outlay in less than 3.5 years. [ 3.3 Years < 3.5 Year Max . ] The management of Basket Wonders has set a maximum PBP of 3.5 years for projects of this type. Should this project be accepted?

PBP Strengths and Weaknesses:

PBP Strengths and Weaknesses Strengths : Easy to use and understand Can be used as a measure of liquidity Easier to forecast ST than LT flows Weaknesses : Does not account for TVM Does not consider cash flows beyond the PBP Cutoff period is subjective

Internal Rate of Return (IRR):

Internal Rate of Return (IRR) IRR is the discount rate that equates the present value of the future net cash flows from an investment project with the project’s initial cash outflow. CF 1 CF 2 CF n (1+ IRR ) 1 (1+ IRR ) 2 (1+ IRR ) n + . . . + + ICO =

IRR Acceptance Criterion:

IRR Acceptance Criterion No! The firm will receive 11.57% for each dollar invested in this project at a cost of 13% . [ IRR < Hurdle Rate ] The management of Basket Wonders has determined that the hurdle rate is 13% for projects of this type. Should this project be accepted?

Net Present Value (NPV):

Net Present Value (NPV) NPV is the present value of an investment project’s net cash flows minus the project’s initial cash outflow. CF 1 CF 2 CF n (1+ k ) 1 (1+ k ) 2 (1+ k ) n + . . . + + - ICO NPV =

Creating NPV Profiles Using the Calculator Hint : As long as you do not “clear” the cash flows from the registry, simply start at Step 15 and enter a different discount rate. Each resulting NPV will provide a “point” for your NPV Profile !

Profitability Index (PI):

Profitability Index (PI) PI is the ratio of the present value of a project’s future net cash flows to the project’s initial cash outflow. CF 1 CF 2 CF n (1+ k ) 1 (1+ k ) 2 (1+ k ) n + . . . + + ICO PI = PI = 1 + [ NPV / ICO ] << OR >> Method #2: Method #1:

PI Acceptance Criterion:

PI Acceptance Criterion No! The PI is less than 1.00 . This means that the project is not profitable. [ Reject as PI < 1.00 ] PI = $38,572 / $40,000 = .9643 (Method #1, 13-34) Should this project be accepted?

PI Strengths and Weaknesses:

PI Strengths and Weaknesses Strengths : Same as NPV Allows comparison of different scale projects Weaknesses : Same as NPV Provides only relative profitability Potential Ranking Problems

Another Way to Look at Things:

Another Way to Look at Things 1. Adjust cash flows to a common terminal year if project “Y” will NOT be replaced. Compound Project Y, Year 1 @10% for 2 years. Year 0 1 2 3 CF -$1,000 $0 $0 $2,420 Results: IRR* = 34.26% NPV = $818 * Lower IRR from adjusted cash-flow stream. X is still Best.

Replacing Projects with Identical Projects:

Replacing Projects with Identical Projects 2. Use Replacement Chain Approach (Appendix B) when project “Y” will be replaced. 0 1 2 3 -$1,000 $2,000 -1,000 $2,000 -1,000 $2,000 -$1,000 $1,000 $1,000 $2,000 Results: IRR = 100% NPV* = $2,238.17 * Higher NPV, but the same IRR . Y is Best .

Capital Rationing:

Capital Rationing Capital Rationing occurs when a constraint (or budget ceiling) is placed on the total size of capital expenditures during a particular period. Example : Julie Miller must determine what investment opportunities to undertake for Basket Wonders (BW) . She is limited to a maximum expenditure of $32,500 only for this capital budgeting period.

Single-Point Estimate and Sensitivity Analysis:

Single-Point Estimate and Sensitivity Analysis Allows us to change from “ single-point ” (i.e., revenue, installation cost, salvage, etc.) estimates to a “ what if ” analysis Utilize a “base-case” to compare the impact of individual variable changes E.g., Change forecasted sales units to see impact on the project’s NPV Sensitivity Analysis : A type of “what-if” uncertainty analysis in which variables or assumptions are changed from a base case in order to determine their impact on a project’s measured results (such as NPV or IRR).

Post-Completion Audit:

Post-Completion Audit Post-completion Audit A formal comparison of the actual costs and benefits of a project with original estimates. Identify any project weaknesses Develop a possible set of corrective actions Provide appropriate feedback Result: Making better future decisions!

Multiple IRR Problem*:

Multiple IRR Problem* Two!! There are as many potential IRRs as there are sign changes. Let us assume the following cash flow pattern for a project for Years 0 to 4: -$100 +$100 +$900 -$1,000 How many potential IRRs could this project have? * Refer to Appendix A

NPV Profile -- Multiple IRRs:

NPV Profile -- Multiple IRRs Discount Rate (%) 0 40 80 120 160 200 Net Present Value ($000s) Multiple IRRs at k = 12.95% and 191.15% 75 50 25 0 -100

NPV Profile -- Multiple IRRs:

NPV Profile -- Multiple IRRs Hint : Your calculator will only find ONE IRR – even if there are multiple IRRs. It will give you the lowest IRR. In this case, 12.95%.
