= CF1 (PVIF,K,I)+-------------------
Internal Rate of Return –
An internal rate of return is the rate we expect to earn on an investment of project. IRR is that rate which discounts a projects cash flow to an NPV=0.
CF CF CF
0 = ----- + ----- + ------- ------ - I
1+r (1+r)2 (1+r)n
= CF(PV1FA,r,n) – I
The pay back period measures the length of time required to recover the initial investment on a project.
ACCOUNTING RATE OF RETURN –
The accounting rate of return (ARR) equal the average annual after tax accounting profit generated by the investment divided by the average investment.
average annual profit
ARR = ------------------------------
(1 – s)
DEBT service coverage ratio –
The capacity of the project to meet the interest payment and principal repayments on time.
1 n PA Tt + Dt + It
DSCR = --- S ------------------------
n t=1 It + Lt
PA Tt = Profit after tax in year t.
Dt = Depreciation charge in year t.
It = Interest on long term loans in year t.
n = Period over which the loan has to be repaid.
Benefit cost ratio (BCR)
BCR = ------
BCR = Benefit Cost Ratio
PV = Present value of future cash flows.
I = Initial investment
BCR > 1 NBCR > 0 Accept
BCR < 1 NBCR < 0 Reject
Break Even Point.
The point at which the entire fixed costs are covered.
BEP = -----------------------------------
