1 FI 3300 - Corporate Finance leng Ling FINC3131 Business FinanceChapter 11: Basics of Capital Budgeting
2 Learning objectivesExplain the purpose and importance of capital budgeting.Determine whether a new project should be accepted using the:net present value (NPV)internal rate of return (IRR)payback period (PBP)discounted payback periodIdentify the two conditions under which IRR doesn’t work.
3 Capital Budgeting Decision 1 FI Corporate Finance leng LingCapital Budgeting Decision 1Capital budgeting: the process of analyzing projects and decide which ones to invest in.Project: any investment that involves cash outflows (costs) made in order to receive cash inflows (benefits).E.g.,: new product, new plant & machinery, cost saving technologies, new accounting software.Real asset/project is defined in very broad terms.Concrete examples of projects:Introducing a new product to the marketInstalling and using new plant & machineryInstalling a cost saving technologyImplementing a new accounting software (e.g., SAP)
4 Capital Budgeting Decision 2 Let’s be more specific about the decision to be made:Given the cash inflows and outflows of a project, should the firm accept or reject the project.If the firm accepts, it will invest in the project. If the firm rejects, it will not invest in the project.This type of decision is known as a capital budgeting decision.
5 Capital Budgeting Decision 3 FI Corporate Finance leng LingCapital Budgeting Decision 3If the firm makes a wrong capital budgeting decision, e.g., invest in the wrong project, then scarce resources are wasted. It also means that firm value and shareholder wealth will be reduced.Thus, to maximize shareholder wealth, it’s vital that firms make correct capital budgeting decisions.
6 Capital budgeting rules We will learn to apply 4 capital budgeting rules:Net present value (NPV)Internal rate of return (IRR)Payback period (PBP)Discounted payback period
7 Net present value (NPV) rule FI Corporate Finance leng LingNet present value (NPV) ruleAccept project ifNet present value > 0What is Net present value?Net present value= Benefits minus Costs
8 How do we measure benefits & costs? Benefits, B= Present value of all cash inflows from the project=Cash inflow at the end of period tNumber of years in the project’s lifeDiscount rate for the project’s cash flows
9 How do we measure benefits & costs? Costs, C= Present value of all cash outflows from the project=Cash outflow at the end of period tNumber of years in the project’s lifeDiscount rate for the project’s cash flows
10 How do we measure benefits & costs? NPV = B – C =
11 Internal rate of return (IRR) rule 1 IRR: the discount rate that will make the PV of cash inflows equal to the PV of cash outflows.In other words, IRR is the discount rate such that the NPV is 0.PV of cash outflows, discounted at IRRPV of cash inflows, discounted at IRR
12 Internal rate of return (IRR) rule 2 Accept project ifIRR > cost of capitalIntuitively, think of the IRR as the return from the project.Then the project should be accepted if the return is greater than the required rate of return / cost of capital.
13 NPV and IRRNPV and IRR are the two most important capital budgeting techniques. The relationship between the two can be illustrated by the NPV profile.NPV profile is a graph showing the NPV values for different discount rates.
14 FI 3300 - Corporate Finance leng Ling NPV and IRRThe graph above plots the NPV of the project on the vertical axis for different discount rates. This profile is true only for projects with normal cash flows, i.e., a project with an initial outflow at time 0 and positive cash flows in all subsequent years.When the discount rate is zero, the NPV is As the discount rate increases, the NPV decreases.
15 FI 3300 - Corporate Finance leng Ling Apply the NPV and IRRA firm is considering investment in a project that costs $1,200 and yields cash flows of $500 in the first year, $600 in the second year and $700 in the third year. Compute the NPV and IRR of this project. The appropriate discount rate for this project is 10 percent.
16 Computing NPV using BA II Plus FI Corporate Finance leng LingComputing NPV using BA II PlusPress CF, press and then press ENTER for CF0.Next press “” and enter 500 for C01.Press “” and enter 1 for F01.Similarly enter C02 = 600, F02 = 1, C03 = 700, and F03 = 1. Make sure that all the cash flows later than C03 are zero.Press NPV. Enter the discount rate of 10 percent by pressing 10 and then ENTER.The display will show that I = Next press the “” and press CPT. The calculator will display the NPV of Decision: Accept project
17 Computing IRR using BA II Plus FI Corporate Finance leng LingComputing IRR using BA II PlusIn order to compute the IRR, follow the same steps as above for entering the cash flows.Then instead of pressing NPV, press the IRR button and then press CPT.The calculator will display the IRR as percent.Decision: Accept project
18 FI 3300 - Corporate Finance leng Ling Normal cash flowsIn the previous problem, there is ONE cash outflow at the beginning. After that, we have all cash inflows.A project with such a cash flow pattern is a project with normal cash flows.So what? For projects with NORMAL CASH FLOWS, the NPV, IRR rules will give the SAME decision. This is exactly what happened in the problem we solved.
19 FI 3300 - Corporate Finance leng Ling Apply NPV, IRRAssume a discount rate of 11%. Compute the NPV, IRR and decide whether the project should be accepted or rejected.ProjectC0C1C2C3C4C5T=0T=1T=2T=3T=4T=5A-1000400500Verify that NPV = , IRR = 31.79%,Since NPV>0, IRR>11%, accept the project
20 FI 3300 - Corporate Finance leng Ling Another questionA five-year project, if taken, will require an initial investment of $120,000. The expected end-of-year cash inflows are as follows:If the appropriate cost of capital for this project is 11%, which of the following is a correct decision?a. Reject the project because NPV = -$30,507, which is less than 0.b. Reject the project because IRR is 10.04%, which is less than the cost of capital, 11%.c. Both a and b are correct.d. Accept the project because IRR is positive.e. None of the above is correct.C1C2C3C4C530,00042,00028,00012,000Answer B
21 Conceptual problem: NPV and IRR FI Corporate Finance leng LingConceptual problem: NPV and IRRConsider a project with an initial outflow at time 0 and positive cash flows in all subsequent years. As the discount rate is decreased the _____________.IRR remains constant while the NPV increases.IRR decreases while the NPV remains constant.IRR increases while the NPV remains constant.IRR remains constant while the NPV decreases.IRR decreases while the NPV decreases.Answer A
22 Computational problem: NPV and IRR FI Corporate Finance leng LingComputational problem: NPV and IRRYou are attempting to reconstruct a project analysis of a co-worker who was fired. You have found the following information:The IRR is 12%.The project life is 4 years.The initial cost is $20,000.In years 1, 3 and 4 you will receive cash inflows of $6,000.You know there will be a cash flow in year 2, but the amount is not in the file.The appropriate discount rate is 10%.What is the NPV of the project?Answer:
23 Which of the following statements is incorrect? FI Corporate Finance leng LingWhich of the following statements is incorrect?Assuming a project has normal cash flows (that is, the initial cash flow is negative, and all other cash flows are positive), the NPV will be positive if the IRR is less than the cost of capitalAssuming a project has normal cash flows, (that is, the initial cash flow is negative, and all other cash flows are positive), any independent project acceptable by the NPV method will also be acceptable by the IRR methodIf IRR = the cost of capital, then NPV = 0NPV can be negative, even if the IRR is positiveIf the NPV of a normal project is greater than 0, the company should accept the projectAnswer: A
24 Project with identical cash inflows FI Corporate Finance leng LingProject with identical cash inflowsCompute the NPV, IRR of the following project that a firm is considering. The firm’s cost of capital for this project is 12 percent. The project will require an initial investment of $6 million and it will generate cash flows $750,000 per year for ever.Verify that NPV=$250,000, IRR=12.5%
25 Warnings about IRR criterion The IRR criterion cannot give the correct accept/reject decision under the following conditions:Cash inflows (benefits) occur BEFORE cash outflows (costs).Cash flows change signs more than once. E.g., cash outflow at t=0, cash inflow at t=1, cash outflow at t=2.
26 Condition 1: Cash inflows occur before cash outflows Thus far, we have considered projects with normal cash flows, (i.e., a single cash outflow in year 0 followed by cash inflows in all future years).With normal cash flows, IRR works fine.However, if you have cash inflow first, followed by cash outflow, then IRR will be negative.Result: You cannot use IRR to make the accept/reject decision.Use NPV to get the correct decision.
27 Condition 1: Cash inflows occur before cash outflows FI Corporate Finance leng LingCondition 1: Cash inflows occur before cash outflowsConsider the project that yields a cash flow of $120 at t = 0 and requires a cost of $100 to be paid at t = 1. The discount rate is 10%.NPV = 120 – (100/1.1) = 29.09IRR =For this type of project, use NPV to get the correct accept/reject decision.IRR is NOT appropriate for this type of project!
28 Condition 2: Cash flows change signs more than once FI Corporate Finance leng LingCondition 2: Cash flows change signs more than onceConsider the following project cash flows: t = 0, -$400, t = 1, $2,500, t = 2, -$3,000. Suppose that the company’s cost of capital is 70 percent.NPV = $ The project is, acceptable.There are two IRR’s for this project: 61.98%, 363%. Look at the NPV profile (next slide).When there are multiple IRRs, the IRR method loses meaning and is NOT appropriate.However, the NPV method still gives the correct accept/reject decision.Using the BA II Plus, students will get the first IRR = 61.98%, but this is misleading.
29 Condition 2: Cash flows change signs more than once FI Corporate Finance leng LingCondition 2: Cash flows change signs more than onceFigure 11.3: Project NPV profile.Cash flows at t = 0, 1, 2 are -$400, $2,500, -$3,000.When cash flows change sign more than once, there will be more than IRR. So it’s difficult to decide which IRR to use.
30 Payback Period (PBP) Criterion Payback period: the number of periods it takes the cash inflows from a project to recover the original cost of the project.Decision rule:Firm specifies an arbitrary number of years as the critical number (x).If payback period < x, then accept the project. Otherwise, reject the project.Note: unless otherwise stated, assume that cash flows are received evenly throughout the year.
31 Applying the PBP criterion FI Corporate Finance leng LingApplying the PBP criterionCompute the payback periods for the following two projects.ProjectC0C1C2C3C4C5A-900020003000400050006000B-11000Verify that PBP for A = 3 years, PBP for B = 3.4 years (assume cash flows occur evenly throughout the year)
32 Which of the following statements is most correct? FI Corporate Finance leng LingWhich of the following statements is most correct?If the NPV of a project is positive then the payback rule will always accept the project.If the NPV of a normal cash flow project is negative then the IRR will always be greater than cost of capital.For projects in which the cash flows switch direction (i.e. from positive to negative or vice-versa) more than once, the NPV criteria may give multiple solutions.For independent projects with normal cash flows, the NPV, IRR rules are equally valid and give the same accept/reject decision.If the NPV of a project is greater than zero, then the IRR will always be less than the required rate of return.Answer: D
33 FI 3300 - Corporate Finance leng Ling NPV + PBP ProblemBantam Industries is considering a project which has the following cash flows:Year Cash flow?$2,000$3,000$3,000$1,500The project has a payback period of 2 years. The firm's cost of capital is 12%.What is the project's net present value?Verify that NPV = 2,265.91
34 Problems with the payback period criterion It is an arbitrary decision rule since the critical number is arbitrarily chosen.It ignores the cash flows that occur after the critical number.It ignores the time value of money. Future cash inflows are directly compared with the project’s cost without discounting those future cash flows.
35 PBP does not consider cash flows after the critical number FI Corporate Finance leng LingPBP does not consider cash flows after the critical numberA firm uses two years as the critical number for the payback period.This firm is faced with two projects whose cash flows are:ProjectC0C1C2C3A-100050051010B99,000,000According to the payback rule, project A will be accepted and B will be rejected.But, if you consider all cash flows, including those after 2 years, then project B is more attractive.
36 Discounted payback back period criterion FI Corporate Finance leng LingDiscounted payback back period criterionAddress the fact that PBP ignores the time value of money.To apply the discounted PBP criterion, use discounted value of cash flows. Everything else is the same as the original PBP criterion.
37 Example of discounted payback period criterion FI Corporate Finance leng LingExample of discounted payback period criterionExample: Suppose that the discount rate is 10 percent. Project A has the following cash flows and discounted cash flows. Find A’s discounted PBP.Project AC0C1C2C3Cash flow-9000300060009000Discounted cash flow272749596762Verify that discounted payback period = years
38 Why PBP exists It is used quite widely by corporations. It is used primarily as a secondary project selection criterion.For example, a firm may require a project to have positive NPV first and also satisfy some payback criterion.
39 Summary Techniques Accept project if Reject project if NPV NPV > 0 IRRIRR > cost of capital, rIRR < cost of capital, rPBPPBP < arbitrary no. of yearsPBP > arbitrary no. of years
