Chapter Outline Time Value of Money Investment Analysis
Financial Feasibility Income Taxes, Inflation, and Risk farm management chapter 17

Chapter Objectives To explain the time value of money and its use
To illustrate the process of compounding To demonstrate the process of discounting To discuss the payback period, simple rate of return, net present value and internal rate of return To show how to apply these concepts To introduce how income taxes, inflation, and risk affect investment analysis farm management chapter 17

Time Value of Money A dollar today is preferred to a dollar in the
future: The dollar could be invested to earn interest If dollar is spent on consumption, we’d prefer to get the enjoyment now Risk is also a factor as unforeseen circumstances could prevent us from getting the dollar Inflation may diminish the value of the dollar over time farm management chapter 17

Present Value and Future Value
Present Value (PV): the number of dollars available or invested at the current time or the current value of some amount to be received in the future Future Value (FV): the amount to be received at some future time or the amount a present value will be worth at some future date when invested at a given interest rate farm management chapter 17

More Terms Payment (PMT): number of dollars to be paid or received in a time period Interest Rate ( i ): also called the discount rate  the interest rate used to find present and future values, often equal to opportunity cost of capital Time Periods ( n ): the number of time periods used to compute present and future values Annuity: a term used to describe a series of periodic payments farm management chapter 17

Computing Future Value
FV = PV ( 1 + i ) n FV = \$1,000 ( ) 3 = \$1,259.70 farm management chapter 17

Future Value of an Annuity
FV = PMT  ( 1 + i ) n  1 i farm management chapter 17

Present Value FV 1 or FV  PV = (1 + i ) n (1 + i ) n
farm management chapter 17

Present Value of an Annuity
PV = PMT  1  ( 1 + i ) -n i farm management chapter 17

Investment Analysis Investment analysis, also called capital budgeting, involves determining profitability of an investment Initial cost: actual total expenditure for the investment Net cash revenues: cash receipts minus cash expenses Terminal value: usually the same as salvage value Discount rate: opportunity cost of capital farm management chapter 17

Payback Period The payback period is the number of
years it would take an investment to return its original cost. If net cash revenues are constant each year, the payback period (P) is: P = C where C is original cost and E is the expected annual net cash revenue E farm management chapter 17

Finding Payback Period
The payback period for investment A is 3.33 years (\$10,000 ÷ 3) The payback for investment B is 4 years, which is found by summing the revenues until they reach \$10,000. farm management chapter 17

Limitations of the Payback Period
The payback period is easy to calculate and identifies the investments with the most immediate cash returns. But it ignores returns after the end of the payback period as well as the timing of cash flows. farm management chapter 17

Simple Rate of Return Rate of return = Investment A = \$1,000
average annual net revenue Rate of return = Investment A = Investment B = initial cost \$1,000 x 100% = 10% \$10,000 \$1,200 x 100% = 12% \$10,000 farm management chapter 17

Net Present Value Net Present Value (NPV) is the sum
of the present values of each year’s net cash flow minus the initial investment. P P2 Pn NPV =  C (1 + i )1 (1 + i ) (1 + i )n . . farm management chapter 17

Internal Rate of Return
The internal rate of return (IRR) is the discount rate that would make the NPV of an investment equal to zero. The IRR is usually calculated by computer or with a financial calculator. farm management chapter 17

Annual Equivalent The annual equivalent is an annuity that
has the same present value as the investment being analyzed. Investment A: \$1,370  = \$361.41 Investment B: \$1,272  = \$335.55 The amortization factor for 10% and 5 years is (Appendix Table 1) farm management chapter 17

Financial Feasibility
The methods presented so far analyze economic profitability Investors also need to look at financial feasibility Will the investment generate sufficient cash flow at the right times to meet required cash outflows? farm management chapter 17

Income Taxes, Inflation, and Risk
Different investments may have different effects on income taxes so they should be compared on an after-tax basis If net cash revenues and terminal values are adjusted for expected inflation, the discount rate should also be adjusted Investments with higher risk should be assigned a higher discount factor farm management chapter 17

Sensitivity Analysis Sensitivity analysis is a process of
asking several “what if” questions. What if net cash revenues are higher or lower? What if the timing is different? What if the discount rate were higher or lower? Change one or more values and recalculate NPV and IRR. farm management chapter 17

Summary The future value of a sum of money is
greater than its present value because of the interest that could be earned. Investments can be analyzed using: payback period, simple rate of return, net present value, and internal rate of return. farm management chapter 17
