Unformatted text preview: Chapter 12 Cash Flow Estimation and Risk Analysis Learning Objectives After reading this chapter, students should be able to: Identify relevant cash flows that should and should not be included in a capital budgeting analysis. Estimate a projects relevant cash flows and put them into a time line format that can be used to calculate a projects NPV, IRR, and other capital budgeting metrics. Explain how risk is measured and use this measure to adjust the firms WACC to account for differential project riskiness. Discuss how some projects can be altered after they have been accepted and how these alterations can change a projects cash flows and thus its realized NPV. Describe the post-audit, which is an important part of the capital budgeting process, and discuss its relevance in capital budgeting decisions. Chapter 12: Cash Flow Estimation and Risk Analysis Learning Objectives 43 Lecture Suggestions This chapter covers some important but relatively technical topics. Note too that this chapter is more modular than most, i.e., the major sections are discrete, hence they can be omitted without loss of continuity. Therefore, if you are experiencing a time crunch, you could skip sections of the chapter. What we cover, and the way we cover it, can be seen by scanning the slides and Integrated Case solution for Chapter 12, which appears at the end of this chapter solution. For other suggestions about the lecture, please see the Lecture Suggestions in Chapter 2, where we describe how we conduct our classes.

Recall that in the stock valuation chapter we focused on dividends, which represent cash flows, rather than on earnings per share. 12-2 Capital budgeting analysis should only include those cash flows that will be affected by the decision. Sunk costs are unrecoverable and cannot be changed, so they have no bearing on the capital budgeting decision. Opportunity costs represent the cash flows the firm gives up by investing in this project rather than its next best alternative, and externalities are the cash flows (both positive and negative) to other projects that result from the firm taking on this project. These cash flows occur only because the firm took on the capital budgeting project; therefore,...
