6 Spring 2010 Why NPV? Problem: ± After saving \$1,500 , you are about to buy a 42-inch plasma TV. You notice that the store is offering “one- year same as cash” deal. You can take the TV home today and pay nothing until one year from now. That is, you can pay the store the \$1,500 purchase price one year later. Assume your savings account earns 5% per year. ± What is the NPV of this offer? ± Show that the NPV represents cash in your pocket. Example 3.5
7 Spring 2010 Why NPV? Solution: Plan: ± You are getting the TV worth \$1,500 today. It is a positive cash flow (benefit today). ± Find the PV of the payment, \$1,500, in one year (the cost today). Today In one year Cash flows: \$1,500 –\$1,500 ± The discount rate is your interest rate of 5%.
