Project Example Information You are looking at a new project and you have estimated the following cash flows: Year 0: CF = -165,000 Year 1: CF = 63,120 Year 2: CF = 70,800 Year 3: CF = 91,080 Your required return for assets of this risk is 12%. 4
Net Present Value The difference between the market value of a project and its cost How much value is created from undertaking an investment? The first step is to estimate the expected future cash flows. The second step is to estimate the required return for projects of this risk level. The third step is to find the present value of the cash flows and subtract the initial investment. 5

NPV – Decision Rule If the NPV is positive, accept the project A positive NPV means that the project is expected to add value to the firm and will therefore increase the wealth of the owners. Since our goal is to increase owner wealth, NPV is a direct measure of how well this project will meet our goal. 6
Computing NPV for the Project Using the formulas: NPV = 63,120/(1.12) + 70,800/(1.12) 2 + 91,080/ (1.12) 3 – 165,000 = 12,627.42 Using the calculator: – CF 0 = -165,000; C01 = 63,120; F01 = 1; C02 = 70,800; F02 = 1; C03 = 91,080; F03 = 1; NPV; I = 12; CPT NPV = 12,627.41 Do we accept or reject the project? 7

Decision Criteria Test - NPV Does the NPV rule account for the time value of money? Does the NPV rule account for the risk of the cash flows? Does the NPV rule provide an indication about the increase in value? Should we consider the NPV rule for our primary decision rule? 8
Calculating NPVs with a Spreadsheet Spreadsheets are an excellent way to compute NPVs, especially when you have to compute the cash flows as well. Using the NPV function The first component is the required return entered as a decimal The second component is the range of cash flows beginning with year 1 Subtract the initial investment after computing the NPV 9
