C5 Underpinnings of the NPV Rule
Why does the NPV rule work? And what does “work” mean?
Look at it this way:
A “firm” is created when securityholders supply the funds to acquire
assets that will be used to produce and sell a good or a service;
The market value of the firm is based on the present value of the
cash flows it is expected to generate;
Additional investments are “good” if the present value of the
incremental expected cash flows exceeds their cost;
Thus, “good” projects are those which increase firm value

or, put
another way, good projects are those projects that have positive
NPVs!
Moral of the story: Invest only in projects with positive NPVs.

we assumed the
following information on Project X:
Initial outlay

$1,100
Required return = 10%
Annual cash benefits:
Year
Cash flows

What’s the Profitability Index (PI)?
C20 Profitability Index Illustrated (concluded)
Previously we found that the NPV of Project X is equal to:
($454.55 + 826.45)

1,100 = $1,281.00

1,100 = $181.00.
The PI = PV inflows/PV outlay = $1,281.00/1,100 =
1.1645
.
This is a good project according to the PI rule. Can you explain
why?
It’s a good project because the present value of the inflows
exceeds the outlay.
C21 Summary of Investment Criteria
I. Discounted cash flow criteria
A.
Net present value (NPV).
The NPV of an investment is the
difference between its market value and its cost. The
NPV
rule
is to take a project if its NPV is positive. NPV has no
serious flaws; it is the preferred decision criterion.
B.
Internal rate of return (IRR).
The IRR is the discount rate that
makes the estimated NPV of an investment equal to zero. The
IRR
rule
is to take a project when its IRR exceeds the required return. When
project cash flows are not conventional, there may be no IRR or there
may be more than one.
C.
Profitability index (PI).
The PI, also called the
benefit

cost ratio
, is
the ratio of present value to cost. The
profitability index rule
is
to
take an investment if the index exceeds 1.0. The PI
measures the present value per dollar invested.
C22 Summary of Investment Criteria (concluded)
II. Payback criteria
A.
Payback period
. The payback period is the length of time until the
sum of an investment’s cash flows equals its cost. The
payback period
rule
is to take a project if its payback period is less than some
prespecified cutoff.
B.
Discounted payback period
. The discounted payback period is the
length of time until the sum of an investment’s discounted cash flows
equals its cost. The
discounted payback period rule
is to take an
investment if the discounted payback is less than some prespecified
cutoff.
III. Accounting criterion
A.
Average accounting return (AAR)
. The AAR is a measure of
accounting profit relative to book value. The
AAR rule
is to
take an investment if its AAR exceeds a benchmark.
C23 A Quick Quiz
1. Which of the capital budgeting techniques
do
account for both the time
value of money and risk?
2. The
change in firm value
associated with investment in a project is
measured by the project’s _____________ .
a. Payback period
b. Discounted payback period
c. Net present value
d. Internal rate of return
3. Why might one use several evaluation techniques to assess a given
project?
C24 A Quick Quiz
1. Which of the capital budgeting techniques
do
account for both the time
value of money and risk?
Discounted payback period, NPV, IRR, and PI
2. The
change in firm value
associated with investment in a project is
measured by the project’s
Net present value
.
3. Why might one use several evaluation techniques to assess a given
project?
To measure different aspects of the project; e.g., the payback period
measures liquidity, the NPV measures the change in firm value, and
the IRR measures the rate of return on the initial outlay.
C25 Problem

years for its international investment projects. If the company
has the following two projects available, should they accept
either of them?

C26 Solution to Problem (concluded)
Project A:
Payback period
=
1 + 1 + ($30,000

25,000)/10,000
=
2.50 years
Project B:
Payback period
=
1 + 1 + 1 + ($45,000

35,000)/$250,000
=
3.04 years
Project A’s payback period is 2.50 years and project B’s
payback period is 3.04 years. Since the maximum acceptable
payback period is 3 years, the firm should accept project A and
reject project B.
C27 Another Problem
A firm evaluates all of its projects by applying the IRR
rule. If the required return is 18 percent, should the firm
accept the following project?

C28 Another Problem (continued)
To find the IRR, set the NPV equal to 0 and solve for the
discount rate:
NPV = 0 =

$30,000
+ $25,000/(1 + IRR)
1
+ $0/(1 + IRR)
2
+$15,000/(1 + IRR)
3
At 18 percent, the computed NPV is ____.
So the IRR must be (
greater/less
) than 18 percent. How did
you know?
C29 Another Problem (concluded)
To find the IRR, set the NPV equal to 0 and solve for the
discount rate:
NPV = 0 =

$30,000
+ $25,000/(1 + IRR)
1
+ $0/(1 + IRR)
2
+$15,000/(1 + IRR)
3
At 18 percent, the computed NPV is
$316
.
So the IRR must be
greater
than 18 percent. We know this
because the computed NPV is positive.
By trial

and

error, we find that the IRR is 18.78 percent.
T30 Fundamental Principles of Project Evaluation
Fundamental Principles of Project Evaluation:
Project evaluation

the application of one or more capital
budgeting decision rules to estimated
relevant project cash
flows
in order to make the investment decision.
Relevant cash flows

the
incremental cash flows
associated with
the decision to invest in a project.
The incremental cash flows for project evaluation consist
of
any and all
changes in the firm’s future cash flows that
are a direct consequence of taking the project.
Stand

alone principle

evaluation of a project based on the
project’s incremental cash flows.

T32 Example: Preparing Pro Forma Statements
Suppose we want to prepare a set of pro forma financial statements
for a project for Norma Desmond Enterprises. In order to do so, we
must have some background information. In this case, assume:
1.
Sales of 10,000 units/year @ $5/unit.
2.
Variable cost per unit is $3. Fixed costs are $5,000 per year.
The project has no salvage value. Project life is 3 years.
3.
Project cost is $21,000. Depreciation is $7,000/year.
4.
Additional net working capital is $10,000.
5. The firm’s required return is 20%. The tax rate is 34%.

T51 Example: Fairways Equipment and Operating Costs
Two golfing buddies are considering opening a new driving range, the
“Fairways Driving Range” (motto: “We always treat you fairly at Fairways”).
Because of the growing popularity of golf, they estimate the range will
generate rentals of 20,000 buckets of balls at $3 a bucket the first year, and
that rentals will grow by 750 buckets a year thereafter. The price will remain
$3 per bucket.

T62 Quick Quiz

Part 1 of 3
Now let’s put our new

found knowledge to work. Assume we have the
following background information for a project being considered by Gillis, Inc.
See if we can calculate the project’s NPV and payback period. Assume:
Required NWC investment = $40; project cost = $60; 3 year life
Annual sales = $100; annual costs = $50; straight line
depreciation to $0
Tax rate = 34%, required return = 12%
Step 1: Calculate the project’s OCF
OCF = (S

C)(1
