1. CHAPTER 11Cash Flow Estimation and Risk Analysis Relevant cash flows Incorporating inflation Types of risk Risk Analysis

2. Proposed Project • Total depreciable cost • Equipment: \$200,000 • Shipping: \$10,000 • Installation: \$30,000 • Changes in working capital • Inventories will rise by \$25,000 • Accounts payable will rise by \$5,000 • Effect on operations • New sales: 100,000 units/year @ \$2/unit • Variable cost: 60% of sales

3. Proposed Project • Life of the project • Economic life: 4 years • Depreciable life: MACRS 3-year class • Salvage value: \$25,000 • Tax rate: 40% • WACC: 10%

4. Determining project value • Estimate relevant cash flows • Calculating annual operating cash flows. • Identifying changes in working capital. • Calculating terminal cash flows. 0 1 2 3 4 Initial OCF1 OCF2 OCF3 OCF4 Costs + Terminal CFs NCF0 NCF1 NCF2 NCF3 NCF4

5. Initial year net cash flow • Find Δ NOWC. • ⇧ in inventories of \$25,000 • Funded partly by an ⇧ in A/P of \$5,000 • Δ NOWC = \$25,000 - \$5,000 = \$20,000 • Combine Δ NOWC with initial costs. Equipment -\$200,000 Installation -40,000 Δ NOWC -20,000 Net CF0 -\$260,000

8. Operating Cash Flow (OCF) • EBIT + Depreciation – Taxes = Operating Cash Flows

9. Terminal net cash flow Recovery of NOWC \$20,000 Salvage value 25,000 Tax on SV (40%) -10,000 Terminal CF \$35,000 Q. How is NOWC recovered? Q. Is there always a tax on SV? Q. Is the tax on SV ever a positive cash flow?

10. Should financing effects be included in cash flows? • No, dividends and interest expense should not be included in the analysis. • Financing effects have already been taken into account by discounting cash flows at the WACC of 10%. • Deducting interest expense and dividends would be “double counting” financing costs.

11. Should a \$50,000 improvement cost from the previous year be included in the analysis? • No, the building improvement cost is a sunk cost and should not be considered. • This analysis should only include incremental investment.

12. If the facility could be leased out for \$25,000 per year, would this affect the analysis? • Yes, by accepting the project, the firm foregoes a possible annual cash flow of \$25,000, which is an opportunity cost to be charged to the project. • The relevant cash flow is the annual after-tax opportunity cost. • A-T opportunity cost = \$25,000 (1 – T) = \$25,000(0.6) = \$15,000

13. If the new product line were to decrease the sales of the firm’s other lines, would this affect the analysis? • Yes. The effect on other projects’ CFs is an “externality.” • Net CF loss per year on other lines would be a cost to this project. • Externalities can be positive (in the case of complements) or negative (substitutes).

14. Proposed project’s cash flow time line 0 1 2 3 4 -260 79.7 91.2 62.4 54.7 Terminal CF → 35.0 89.7 • Enter CFs into calculator CFLO register, and enter I/YR = 10%. • NPV = -\$4.03 million • IRR = 9.3%

15. What is the project’s MIRR? 0 1 2 3 4 10% -260.0 79.7 91.2 62.4 89.7 68.6 110.4 106.1 -260.0 374.8 \$374.8 (1 + MIRR)4 PV outflows TV inflows \$260 = MIRR = 9.6% < k = 10%, reject the project

16. Evaluating the project:Payback period 0 1 2 3 4 -260 79.7 91.2 62.4 89.7 Cumulative: -260 -180.3 -89.1 -26.7 63.0 Payback = 3 + 26.7 / 89.7 = 3.3 years.

17. If this were a replacement rather than a new project, would the analysis change? • Yes, the old equipment would be sold, and new equipment purchased. • The incremental CFs would be the changes from the old to the new situation. • The relevant depreciation expense would be the change with the new equipment. • If the old machine was sold, the firm would not receive the SV at the end of the machine’s life. This is the opportunity cost for the replacement project.

18. What if there is expected annual inflation of 5%, is NPV biased? • Yes, inflation causes the discount rate to be upwardly revised. • Therefore, inflation creates a downward bias on PV. • Inflation should be built into CF forecasts.

20. Considering inflation:Project net CFs, NPV, and IRR 0 1 2 3 4 • Enter CFs into calculator CFLO register, and enter I/YR = 10%. • NPV = \$15.0 million. • IRR = 12.6%. -260 82.1 96.1 70.0 65.1 Terminal CF → 35.0 100.1

21. Problem 2 D. Ervin, Inc. is considering a new three-year expansion project that requires an initial fixed asset investment of \$1.5 million. The fixed asset will be depreciated straight-line to zero over its three-year life, after which it will be worthless. The project is estimated to generate \$1,750,000 in annual sales, with costs of \$575,000. If the tax rate is 35 percent, what is the OCF for this project?

22. Sales \$1,750,000 Costs 575,000 Depreciation 500,000 EBIT 675,000 Taxes 236,250 Net income \$ 438,750 • OCF = EBIT + Depreciation – Taxes OCF = \$675,000 + 500,000 – 236,250 OCF = \$938,750

23. Problem 1 Speedy Racer Corp. currently sells 18,000 motor homes per year at \$40,000 each, and 6,000 luxury motor coaches per year at \$55,000 each. The company wants to introduce a new portable camper to fill out its product line; it hopes to sell 12,000 of these campers per year at \$10,000 each. An independent consultant has determined that if Speedy Racer introduces the new campers, it should boost sales of the existing motor homes by 5,000 units per year, and reduce the sales of its motor coaches by 2,000 units per year. What is the amount to use as the annual sales figure when evaluating this project? Why?

24. Sales of camper = 12,000(\$10,000) = \$120 million Sales of motor home = 5,000(\$40,000) = \$200 million Lost sales of luxury motor coach = 2,000(\$55,000) = \$110 million The additional motor home sales are relevant as is the erosion of the motor coach sales. Net sales = \$120M + \$200M – \$110M = \$210M

25. What are the 3 types of project risk? • Stand-alone risk • Corporate risk • Market risk

26. What is stand-alone risk? • The project’s total risk, if it were operated independently. • Usually measured by standard deviation (or coefficient of variation). • However, it ignores the firm’s diversification among projects and investor’s diversification among firms.

27. What is corporate risk? • The project’s risk when considering the firm’s other projects, i.e., diversification within the firm. • Corporate risk is a function of the project’s NPV and standard deviation and its correlation with the returns on other projects in the firm.

28. What is market risk? • The project’s risk to a well-diversified investor. • Theoretically, it is measured by the project’s beta and it considers both corporate and stockholder diversification.

29. Which type of risk is most relevant? • Market risk is the most relevant risk for capital projects, because management’s primary goal is shareholder wealth maximization. • However, since total risk affects creditors, customers, suppliers, and employees, it should not be completely ignored.

30. Which risk is the easiest to measure? • Stand-alone risk is the easiest to measure. Firms often focus on stand-alone risk when making capital budgeting decisions. • Focusing on stand-alone risk is not theoretically correct, but it does not necessarily lead to poor decisions.

31. Are the three types of risk generally highly correlated? • Yes, since most projects the firm undertakes are in its core business, stand-alone risk is likely to be highly correlated with its corporate risk. • In addition, corporate risk is likely to be highly correlated with its market risk.

32. What is sensitivity analysis? • Sensitivity analysis measures the effect of changes in a variable on the project’s NPV. • To perform a sensitivity analysis, all variables are fixed at their expected values, except for the variable in question which is allowed to fluctuate. • Resulting changes in NPV are noted.

33. What are the advantages and disadvantages of sensitivity analysis? • Advantage • Identifies variables that may have the greatest potential impact on profitability and allows management to focus on these variables. • Disadvantages • Does not reflect the effects of diversification. • Does not incorporate any information about the possible magnitudes of the forecast errors.

34. Perform a scenario analysis of the project, based on changes in the sales forecast • Suppose we are confident of all the variable estimates, except unit sales. The actual unit sales are expected to follow the following probability distribution: Case ProbabilityUnit Sales Worst 0.25 75,000 Base 0.50 100,000 Best 0.25 125,000

35. Scenario analysis • All other factors shall remain constant and the NPV under each scenario can be determined. Case ProbabilityNPV Worst 0.25 (\$27.8) Base 0.50 \$15.0 Best 0.25 \$57.8

36. Determining expected NPV, NPV, and CVNPV from the scenario analysis • E(NPV) = 0.25(-\$27.8)+0.5(\$15.0)+0.25(\$57.8) = \$15.0 • NPV= [0.25(-\$27.8-\$15.0)2 + 0.5(\$15.0- \$15.0)2 + 0.25(\$57.8-\$15.0)2]1/2 = \$30.3. • CVNPV = \$30.3 /\$15.0 = 2.0.

37. If the firm’s average projects have CVNPV ranging from 1.25 to 1.75, would this project be of high, average, or low risk? • With a CVNPV of 2.0, this project would be classified as a high-risk project. • Perhaps, some sort of risk correction is required for proper analysis.

38. Is this project likely to be correlated with the firm’s business? How would it contribute to the firm’s overall risk? • We would expect a positive correlation with the firm’s aggregate cash flows. • As long as correlation is not perfectly positive (i.e., ρ 1), we would expect it to contribute to the lowering of the firm’s total risk.

39. If the project had a high correlation with the economy, how would corporate and market risk be affected? • The project’s corporate risk would not be directly affected. However, when combined with the project’s high stand-alone risk, correlation with the economy would suggest that market risk (beta) is high.

40. If the firm uses a +/- 3% risk adjustment for the cost of capital, should the project be accepted? • Reevaluating this project at a 13% cost of capital (due to high stand-alone risk), the NPV of the project is -\$2.2 . • If, however, it were a low-risk project, we would use a 7% cost of capital and the project NPV is \$34.1.

41. What subjective risk factors should be considered before a decision is made? • Numerical analysis sometimes fails to capture all sources of risk for a project. • If the project has the potential for a lawsuit, it is more risky than previously thought. • If assets can be redeployed or sold easily, the project may be less risky.

42. What is Monte Carlo simulation? • A risk analysis technique in which probable future events are simulated on a computer, generating estimated rates of return and risk indexes. • Simulation software packages are often add-ons to spreadsheet programs.

43. Kaleb’s Korndogs is looking at a new sausage system with an installed cost of \$485,000. This cost will be depreciated straight-line to zero over the project’s five-year life, at the end of which the sausage system can be scrapped for \$60,000. The sausage system will save the firm \$123,000 per year in pretax operating costs, and the system requires an initial investment in net working capital of \$27,000. If the tax rate is 34 percent and the discount rate is 10 percent, what is the NPV of this project?

44. Annual depreciation = \$485,000/5 = \$97,000 • Aftertax salvage value = \$60,000 -.34(\$60,000 - 0) = \$39,600 • Cost savings \$123,000 Depreciation 97,000 EBIT 26,000 Taxes 8,840 Net income \$ 17,160

45. OCF = \$26,000 + 97,000 – 8,840 = \$114,160 • NPV = –\$485,000 – \$27,000 + \$114,160 [1 – 1/1.105]/.10 + [(\$39,600 + \$27,000)/1.105 • NPV = –\$37,890.42
