Unformatted text preview: venue • Form above we can obtain breakeven quantity: Revenue = P*Q Variable cost = C *Q [C is a unit cost] Total Cost = FC + VC Breakeven output is: Q* = FC/ (P-C) • In analysis of cost we must take into account all explicit and implicit costs Breakeven Analysis, Continued Oil Exploration • Sunk Cost – After investment takes place the only way to recoup the investment is through depreciation. Initial capital investment is a sunk Cost. This also impact negotiation between contractor and sponsor • Why lumpiness of capital important? – Once activities increase beyond certain point additional capital investment would be required. If capital is lumpy, then part of it may stay ideal. In this case the total cost would be allocated to the project, which could bring profitability low or negative. • How to deal with lumpiness? – lease – outsourcing – alliances Impact of Inflation • Inflation impacts a number of variables in in the NPV equation. Therefore, calculation of NPV, using real value for variables provides different results than if nominal values were used. NPV = -I + ∑(Rc - Cc)(1- ta)(1+i) /(1+r)^t (1+i)^t Where Rc, Cc, and Rc are constant rates and i is the inflation rate – Impact of inflation on different costs parameters maybe different. Therefore, if nominal values were being used each cost components would have to be discounted by its own price index. Impact of Inflation on Tax Shield • Impact of inflation on tax shield is another important aspect. Inflation reduces tax shield of depreciation. This is because, based on USA accounting rules, depreciation is a fix value of the cost of capital good. The difference is particularly important in when there is hyper inflation NPV = -I + ∑(Rc - Cc)(1- ta)(1+i) /(1+i)(1+r)t + ∑ta D/(1+i)(1+r)^t + SV/(1+i) (1+r)t Example of Inflation Company XYZ is considering three different projects, A, B, C. Project A does not need any initial investment, while project B and C require $1,000 and $10,000 investment respectively. All projects have 10 year life span and use straight line depreciation. Annual cash flow of A, B, and C are $361.4, $671.4 and 3460.6. Assuming a discount rate of 20% and tax rate of 34% calculate : After tax NPV of each project Determine the impact of 4.17 % inflation rate on the NPV of each project.

Their objective is not necessarily to maximize profit or NPV as discussed earlier • The main objective of public projects is to maximize social benefits and return to the society • Problem arises regarding quantification of benefits and costs. Often there is no tradable market for public goods (parks, environmental clean up, non-toll road) or even if there is, it does not reflect the true value to the society (public education, public transportation). • Method used for the evaluation of project from public point of view ( as oppose to private firm which looks purely from private value creation for owner/stockholders) is called Cost-Benefit Analysis ( value creation for society). Cost Benefit Analysis • “Cost-Benefit Analysis is a procedure for evaluating the desirability of a project by weighting benefits against costs. Results may be expressed in different ways, including internal rate of return, net present value and benefit-cost ra...
