1 Capital Budgeting Last Update Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

2 What is Capital Budgeting Capital budgeting is the process of deciding the amounts of available funding to set aside for the purchase of fixed assets It is also the process the requester goes through in order to receive approval for a capital expenditure Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

3 What is Capital Budgeting Capital budgeting is a cost-benefit analysis It asks a single question –If we purchase this fixed asset, will the benefits to the company be greater than the cost of the asset As this asset will function over a period of time a complicating factor is that the inflows and outflows may not be comparable Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

4 What is Capital Budgeting The cash outflows – the costs - are typically concentrated at the time of the purchase, while cash inflows – the benefits – arrive irregularly over time The time value of money principle states that dollars today are worth more than dollars in the future Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

5 What is Capital Budgeting The solution is to place all of the funds on both sides on a present value basis which puts them all in today’s dollar value Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

6 Capital Budgeting Analysis A capital budgeting analysis conducts a test to see if the benefits – the cash inflows - are large enough to repay the company for three things –The cost of the asset –The cost of financing the asset –The required rate of return Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

7 Cost of the Asset The cost of the asset is just that, how much must we pay for it Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

8 Cost of Financing The financing cost is the interest cost charged for borrowing the money to pay for the asset or the interest foregone by taking the money out of the bank Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

9 Required Rate of Return The rate of return is the risk premium that accounts for any errors made when estimating cash flows that will occur in the distant future Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

10 Capital Budgeting Methods Let's take a look at the basic methods used for this type of analysis –Hurdle Rate –Payback Period –Net Present Value –Internal Rate of Return –Profitability Index Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

11 Hurdle Rate The hurdle rate is the return we could earn by doing nothing with the funds, just leave them sitting in a safe location such as an insured bank account or government securities It consists of two numbers –The cost of capital –Risk of the investment Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

12 Hurdle Rate The cost of capital is –If withdrawn, the interest given up –If borrowed, the interest rate The risk factor is –The assumption that the funds are safe This number is based on experience It is usually from 1 to a few points It is a guess It is often called a discount rate Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

13 Payback Period This is not a very useful method as it does not account for the time value of money It is the length of time that it takes to recover the investment For example, to recover 30,000 at the rate of 10,000 per year would take 3.0 years Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

14 Payback Period Companies that use this method will set some arbitrary payback period for all capital budgeting projects, such as a rule that only projects with a payback period of 2.5 years or less will be accepted Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

15 Net Present Value Using a minimum rate of return known as the hurdle rate, the net present value of an investment is the present value of the cash inflows minus the present value of the cash outflows A more common way of expressing this is to say that the NPV - net present value is the PVB - present value of the benefits minus the PVC - present value of the costs Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

16 Net Present Value PVB – PVC = NPV By using the hurdle rate as the discount rate, we are conducting a test to see if the project is expected to earn our minimum desired rate of return Here are the decision rules Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

17 Net Present Value NPV IsBenefits v CostsAbove Return Rate Accept or Reject PositiveBenefits > CostsYesAccept ZeroBenefits = CostsEqual ToIndifferent NegativeBenefits < CostsNoReject Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

18 IRR The IRR - Internal Rate of Return is the rate of return that an investor can expect to earn on the investment Technically, it is the discount rate that causes the present value of the benefits to equal the present value of the costs Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

19 IRR According to surveys of businesses, the IRR method is actually the most commonly used method for evaluating capital budgeting proposals This is probably because the IRR is a very easy number to understand because it can be compared easily to the expected return on other types of investments Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

20 IRR If the internal rate of return is greater than the project's minimum rate of return, we would tend to accept the project The calculation of the IRR, however, cannot be determined using a formula; it must be determined using a trial-and-error technique Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

21 Which Basic Method to Use As the payback period is not a useful technique the question is which of the basic methods is better - NPV or IRR NPV is better than the IRR It is superior to the IRR method for at least two reasons Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

22 Which Basic Method to Use –Reinvestment of Cash Flows The NPV method assumes that the project's cash inflows are reinvested to earn the hurdle rate; the IRR assumes that the cash inflows are reinvested to earn the IRR Of the two, the NPV's assumption is more realistic in most situations since the IRR can be very high on some projects Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

23 Which Basic Method to Use –Multiple Solutions for the IRR It is possible for the IRR to have more than one solution If the cash flows experience a sign change, such as a positive cash flow in one year and a negative in the next, the IRR method will have more than one solution In other words, there will be more than one percentage number that will cause the PVB to equal the PVC Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

24 Profitability Index The profitability index is a ratio of the present value of the benefits to the present value of the costs The index is used instead of Net Present Value when evaluating mutually exclusive proposals that have different costs Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

25 Source The material just above is for the most part from online lecture notes by Dr. Larry Guin Professor of Finance (Retired) Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

26 Q Sort Q-Sort is a simple method for ranking ideas on different dimensions Ideas are put on cards For each dimension being considered, the cards are stacked in order of their performance on that dimension Several rounds of sorting and debate are used to achieve consensus about the projects Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

27 Conjoint Analysis Conjoint Analysis estimates the relative value individuals place on attributes of a choice Individuals given a card with products or projects with different features and prices Individuals rate each in terms of desirability or rank them Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

28 Conjoint Analysis Multiple regression is then used to assess the degree to which an attribute influences rating These weights quantify the trade-offs involved in providing different features Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

29 DEA Data Envelopment Analysis uses linear programming to combine measures of projects based on different units, such as rank vs. dollars, into an efficiency frontier Projects can be ranked by assessing their distance from efficiency frontier Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D

30 DEA As with other quantitative methods, DEA results only as good as the data utilized; managers must be careful in their choice of measures and their accuracy Copyright Kenneth M. Chipps Ph.D
