To identify the relevant cash flows to include in capital budgeting analysis 4 FINS1613_s2_2010_L5 Internal Rate of Return (IRR) The Internal Rate of Return (IRR) is the discount rate that equates the PV of a project’s cash inflows with the PV of its cash outflows – IRR is the discount rate that results in a zero NPV. It is also the expected rate of return on a project. 5 FINS1613_s2_2010_L5 IRR: Formula In equation form: where  0 1 1 0 C R C NPV n t t t where: C t = the cash flow generated by the project in year t C 0 = the initial cost of the project (initial cash flow, if any) n = the life of the project in years R = the internal rate of return of the project FINS1613_s2_2010_L5 6

2 Internal Rate of Return: Calculation The equation is solved either by using a spreadsheet/financial calculator or by trial and error. ‘Trial and error’ involves picking a value for IRR and then finding the NPV. – If the result is positive , recalculate with a higher IRR – If the result is negative , recalculate with a lower IRR – Repeat this until the NPV =0 7 FINS1613_s2_2010_L5 IRR: Decision Rule Independent Projects: – Accept project if IRR> the hurdle rate – Reject project if IRR<the hurdle rate • The hurdle rate is the required return on the project Mutually exclusive projects: – Choose the project with the highest IRR. 8 FINS1613_s2_2010_L5 Internal Rate of Return: An example Consider a project with the following cash flows: Period (t) Net Cash Flows 0 -9000 1 5090 2 4500 3 4000 FINS1613_s2_2010_L5 9 Internal Rate of Return: An example To solve using trial and error: After trying several values, the result is:  0 1 4000 1 4500 1 5090 9000 3 2 1 R R R 10 FINS1613_s2_2010_L5 % 25 R Internal Rate of Return: Investment or Financing Project 0 1 IRR (%) NPV@ 10% A -100 130 30 18.18 B 100 -130 30 -18 18 Need to reverse the decision rule for financing project because NPV negative when discount rate is below IRR 130 18.18 FINS1613_s2_2010_L5 11 Internal Rate of Return: Multiple IRR’s It is also possible for a project to have multiple IRR values.
