# Estimating IRR through fake payback period method

JIMS C-702 Ankur Wahal

If the NPV is close to zero. at the given period) 5. Look for factor in Table A-4. Rule: If the initial period cash flows are less than the “fake annuity”. The percentage given at the period equal to the “fake payback period” value should be the proxy IRR 6. Calculate the NPV based on the fake IRR 9.Technique 1. then the IRR will be equal or higher than the IRR arrived in 5 8. than the IRR is computed. otherwise you could assume higher or lower percentage IRR computed in 5 . then the IRR will be equal or lower than the IRR arrived in 5 7. the present value of Annuity 4. Determine the “fake payback period” by dividing the project cost with the assumed annuity 3.e. Rule: If the initial period cash flows are more than the “fake annuity”. Look for the value closest to the “fake payback period” value in the same manner as in the case of annuity (i. Calculate average annual cash inflow to assume “fake annuity” 2.

The following three mutually exclusive projects with project cost of 2.000 1.

Problem 3 ABC ltd is planning to purchase a machinery to meet increased demand. The expected life of machinery is 5 years with SLM as depreciation.000. The cost of machinery is 50. The After tax required rate of return for the company is 12% Calculate IRR .000 per year. The Net Profit for 5 years is 5.

at the end of each year in periods 1-4 Working Capital requirement is 3% of the Project Cost and bears an interest of 7% The debt of 85% is further divided into the following structure: Senior Debt 75% with repayments in 10 years and interest rate of 7% Subordinate Debt 10% with repayments in 5 years and interest rate of 12% The Project will generate steady Profits of 14 cr.Problem 4 Project value 100 cr. Equity 15% and debt 85% Capex 4 installments 250 cr. for the project life Prepare the FCFE available for the equity shareholders .
