OPTION WORKSHEET:PATENT AS OPTION VALUING A PRODUCT PATENT/PROJECT AS AN OPTION This program calculates the value of a product patent or a project as an option. Assumptions 1. All the assumptions underlying the Black-Scholes model apply 2. The current value of the project and the variance in this value are known. The user has to input the following variables 1. Present value of net cashflows from taking project now. 2. Variance in the present value, as a function of environmental and technical changes. 3. Present value of the cost of developing the product/project for commerical use. 4. Riskless interest rate that corresponds to length of the product patent. 5. Length of the product patent / rights to the project. 6. Expected annual after-tax cashflow from project after it is developed. Inputs relating the underlying asset Enter the present value of net cashflows from taking project now = $800,000 Enter the standard deviation in the present value of project cashflows =

Unformatted text preview: 30.00% Inputs relating to the option Enter the present value of the cost of developing product/project = $1,000,000 (in currency) Enter the life of the product patent / project rights = 10 (in years) As a default, we will assume that you if you do not invest in the project once it becomes viable, you will lose one year of protection and that your cash flows will decline proportionately (1/remaining life of the patent) Do you want to change this default? No If so, enter the expected annual cost of delaying investment (as % of value) General Inputs Enter the riskless rate that corresponds to the option lifetime = 8.00% VALUING A LONG TERM OPTION/WARRANT Stock Price= $800,000 T.Bond rate= 8.00% Strike Price= $1,000,000 Variance= 0.09 Expiration (in years) = 10 Annualized dividend yield= 10.00% d1 = 0.0283091826 N(d1) = 0.5112922215 d2 =-0.9203741155 N(d2) = 0.1786886452 Value of the product patent/project right = $70,185...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
