Topic Overview Topic Project Types Capital Budgeting Decision Criteria ◦ Net Present Value (NPV) ◦ Internal Rate of Return (IRR) ◦ Modified Internal Rate of Return (MIRR) ◦ Payback Period ◦ Discounted Payback Period Learning Objectives Learning Understand how to calculate and use the 5 capital budgeting decision techniques:, NPV, IRR, MIRR, Payback, & Discounted Payback. Understand the advantages and disadvantages of each technique. Understand which project to select when there is a ranking conflict between NPV and IRR. Think about this as we cover Chapter 11 Capital Budgeting Decision Methods. Capital Which of the following investment opportunities would you prefer? #1) Give me $1 now and I’ll give you $2 at the end of class. #2) Give me $100 now and I’ll give you $150 at the end of class. WHAT IS CAPITAL BUDGETING? BUDGETING? Analysis of potential additions to fixed assets. Long-term decisions; involve large expenditures. Very important to firm’s future. Capital Budgeting Steps: Capital 1. Estimate CFs (inflows & outflows). 2. Assess riskiness of CFs. 3. Determine k = WACC (adj.). 4. Find NPV and/or IRR. 5. Accept if NPV > 0 and/or IRR > WACC. Types of Projects Types Brand new line of business Expansion of existing line of business Replacement of existing asset Independent vs. Mutually Exclusive Normal vs. Non-normal An Example of Mutually Exclusive Projects: Exclusive BRIDGE VS. BOAT TO GET PRODUCTS ACROSS A RIVER. Normal vs. Nonnormal Projects Projects Normal Project: ◦ Cost (negative CF) followed by a series of positive cash inflows. One change of signs. Non-normal Project: ◦ Two or more changes of signs. ◦ Most common: Cost (negative CF), then string of positive CFs, then cost to close project. ◦ Nuclear power plant, strip mine.

Acceptance of a project with a NPV > 0 will add value to the firm. Decision Rule: ◦ Accept if NPV >0, ◦ Reject if NPV < 0 NPV: Sum of the PVs of inflows and outflows.

Solution to this spreadsheet problem: exclude CF0 (t = 0 cash flow) from NPV cell range and add CF0 (if CF0 is already negative) or subtract CF0 (if CF0 is positive) from NPV function. Marge’s NPV Decision Marge’s If projects are independent, Marge should select both. ◦ Both have positive NPV. If the projects are mutually exclusive, select How ‘Bout A Pretzel? ◦ Pretzel NPV > Falafel NPV. Internal Rate of Return: IRR Internal 0 1 2 3 CF0 Cost CF1 CF2 Inflows CF3 IRR is the discount rate that forces PV inflows = cost. This is the same as forcing NPV = 0. NPV: Enter k, solve for NPV. CFt = NPV. ∑ t t = 0 ( 1 + k) n IRR: Enter NPV = 0, solve for IRR. CFt = 0. ∑ t t = 0 ( 1 + IRR) n Internal Rate of Return (IRR) Internal Internal Rate of Return is a project’s expected rate of return on its investment. IRR is the interest rate where the PV of the inflows equals the PV of the outflows. In other words, the IRR is the rate where a project’s NPV = 0. Decision Rule: Accept if IRR > k (cost of capital). Non-normal projects have multiple IRRs. Don’t use IRR to decide on non-normal projects. Marge’s IRRs Marge’s Best to use calculator. Calculator Steps. Falafel-Full: CF0 = -20,000, C01 = 15,000, F01 = 2, C02 = 13,000, F02 = 1, C03 = 3,000. Press IRR, then CPT: IRR = 54.7% Pretzel: CF0 = -20,000, C01 = 2,000, C02 = 2,500, C03 = 3,000, C04 = 50,000. Press IRR, then CPT: IRR = 33.3% k = 12%. If independent projects: Comparison of NPV & IRR Comparison For normal independent projects, both methods give same accept/reject decision. NPV ◦ NPV > 0 yields IRR > k in order to lower NPV to 0. NPV However, the methods can rank mutually exclusive projects differently. What to do, then? Today’s Agenda Today’s NPV/IRR Ranking conflict Modified Internal Rate of Return Payback Period Discounted Payback Period NPV Profiles NPV A graph which shows a project’s NPV at different interest rates (cost of capital). Can illustrate ranking conflicts between NPV and IRR.

If there is a change of signs of these cash flow differences, a ranking conflict exists. Find IRR of these cash flow differences to find rate where the two projects have the same NPV = crossover rate.

At cost of capital greater than 14.1%, Falafel has the higher NPV and IRR. Two reasons NPV profiles cross: cross: 1) Size (scale) differences. Smaller project frees up funds at t = 0 for investment. The higher the opp. cost, the more valuable these funds, so high k favors small projects. Timing differences. Project with faster payback provides more CF in early years for reinvestment. If k is high, early CF especially good, NPVS > NPVL. 2) Which project is best for Marge? Marge? Think back to my indecent proposal. Which of the following investment opportunities would you prefer? #1) Give me $1 now and I’ll give you $2 at the end of class. #2) Give me $100 now and I’ll give you $150 at the end of class. Reconciling Ranking Conflicts absent capital rationing. absent Shareholder Wealth Maximization: Rate Assumption: ◦ Want to add more value to the firm than less. Reinvestment ◦ NPV assumes cash flows are reinvested at company’s cost of capital (i.e.: the investors’ required rate of return). ◦ IRR assumes cash flows are reinvested at IRR. ◦ The NPV reinvestment rate assumption is more realistic. Result: Choose project with highest NPV when NPV/IRR ranking conflict exists for mutually exclusive projects. Acme, Inc. Rocket-Powered Roller Blade Project Roller Acme is considering the following project which would market these roller blades to coyotes trying to catch road runners. Acme expects a cash inflow in the year 1, but an outflow in the 2nd (last) year of the project due to liability claims from injured cartoon coyotes. Acme’s opportunity cost of capital is 13%. Year 0 Cash Flow (5) NPV = -1.95 IRR = 26.8% 1 30 2 (30) Rocket-Powered Roller Blade NPV Profile Profile 4 NPV ­1 0% ­6 50% 100% 150% 200% 250% 300% 350% 400% 450% 500% 550% At Acme’s 13% opportunity cost of capital, the project has a negative NPV even though the IRRs (~27% & 374%) are greater than 13%. Because of this conflict, don’t use IRR to make decisions for nonnormal projects! Why even mess with IRR? Why Since we like NPV, why mess with something like IRR? A rate of return or interest rate is more intuitive for outsiders and easier to understand. But IRR assumes an unrealistic reinvestment rate an leads to multiple IRRs for non-normal projects. Solution: Modified Internal Rate of Return (MIRR). Modified Internal Rate of Return, MIRR MIRR The interest rate where the FV of a project’s inflows (TV) are discounted to equal the PV of a project’s outflows. Assumes cash inflows are reinvested at the project’s cost of capital (k). PV(outflows) = TV/(1+MIRR)n, where TV = Σ CIFt(1+k)n-t, and PV(outflows) = Σ COFt/(1+k)t ◦ Where CIF = annual cash inflow, and COF = annual cash outflow. Steps to finding MIRR. Steps Find TV of inflows by finding FV of each annual inflow to the end of the project’s life at the cost of capital. Find PV of outflows at the cost of capital today. Then find interest rate over the n years of the project that equates the TV (=FV) to the PV of the outflows(=PV). Decision rule same as IRR: Compare MIRR to cost of capital.
