In the evaluation of an investment project, we work with the forecasts of cash flows.

Forecasted cash flows depend on the expected revenue and costs. Further, expected revenue

is a function of sales volume and unit selling price. Similarly, sales volume will depend on

market size and the firm’s market share. Costs include variable costs, which depend on sales

volume, and unit variable costs and fixed costs. The net present value or the internal rate of

return of the project is determined by analysing the after-tax cash flows arrived at by

combining forecasts of various variables. The reliability of NPV or IRR of the project will

depend on the reliability of the variables underlying the estimates of net cash flows. To

determine the project’s NPV or IRR, we can work out how much difference it makes if any of

these forecasts goes wrong. We can change each of the forecasts, over time, to at least three

values: pessimistic, expected and optimistic. The NPV of the project is recalculated under

these different assumptions. This method of recalculating the NPV or IRR, by changing each

forecast is called sensitivity analysis.

**Sensitivity analysis is a way of analysing change in the project’s NPV (or IRR) for a given
**

change in one of the variables. It indicates how sensitive a project’s NPV (or IRR) is to

changes in particular variables. The more sensitive the NPV, the more critical is the variable.

The following three steps are involved in the use of sensitivity analysis:

**• Identification of all those variables, which have an influence on the project’s NPV (or
**

IRR)

• Definition of the underlying (mathematical) relationship between the variables

• Analysis of the impact of the change in each of the variables on the project’s NPV

**The decision maker, while performing sensitivity analysis, computes the project’s NPV (or
**

IRR) for each forecast under three assumptions: pessimistic, expected and optimistic. It

allows him/her to ask “what if” questions. For example, what (is the NPV) if the volume

increases or decreases? What (is the NPV) if the variable or the fixed costs increases or

decreases? What (is the NPV) if the selling price increases or decreases? What (is the NPV) if

the project’s life is more or less than anticipated? A whole range of questions can be

answered with the help of sensitivity analysis. It examines the sensitivity of the variables

underlying the computation of the NPV or IRR, rather than attempting to quantify risk. It can

be applied to any variable, which is an input for the after-tax cash flows. Before proceeding

to sensitivity analysis, it is necessary to have knowledge about some terms

Risk and uncertainty

**Risk is referred to a situation where the probability distribution of the cash flows of an
**

investment proposal is known.

**Uncertainty is different from risk in sense because here no information is available to
**

formulate a probability distribution of the cash flows.

**When a project is taken up some kind of risk is always attached with it. This kind of risk
**

could be because of the inability of the decision maker to make perfect forecast. Forecasts

cannot be made with perfection or certainty since the future events on which they depend are

uncertain.

Even if the risk in project is diversifiable, one still need to know why the venture could fail.

Once it is known, it becomes easy to decide whether the project is worth investing or not? An

investment is not risky if one can specify a unique sequence of cash flows for it. But the

whole problem is that cash flows cannot be forecast accurately, and alternative sequences of

cash flows can occur depending on the future events. Thus, risk arises in investment

evaluation because on cannot anticipate the occurrence of the possible future events with

certainty and consequently, cannot make any correct prediction about the cash flow sequence.

Net Present Value

**Net present value (NPV) or net present worth (NPW) is defined as the total present value
**

(PV) of a time series of cash flows. It is a standard method for using the time value of money

to appraise long-term projects. Used for capital budgeting, and widely throughout economics,

it measures the excess or shortfall of cash flows, in present value terms, once financing

charges are met.

**NPV is an indicator of how much value an investment or project adds to the value of the firm.
**

With a particular project, if it is a positive value, the project is in the status of discounted cash

inflow. If it is a negative value, the project is in the status of discounted cash outflow.

Appropriately, risked projects with a positive NPV could be accepted. This does not

necessarily mean that they should be undertaken since NPV at the cost of capital may not

account for opportunity cost, i.e. comparison with other available investments. In financial

theory, if there is a choice between two mutually exclusive alternatives, the one yielding the

higher NPV should be selected. It is give by the formula:

NPV= PVB - PVC

Internal Rate of Return

**The internal rate of return (IRR) is a capital budgeting metric used by firms to decide whether
**

they should make investments. It is an indicator of the efficiency or quality of an investment,

as opposed to net present value (NPV), which indicates value or magnitude.

**The IRR is the annualized effective compounded return rate which can be earned on the
**

invested capital, i.e., the yield on the investment.

**A project is a good investment proposition if its IRR is greater than the rate of return that
**

could be earned by alternate investments (investing in other projects, buying bonds, even

putting the money in a bank account). Thus, the IRR should be compared to any alternate

costs of capital including an appropriate risk premium. In general, if the IRR is greater than

the project's cost of capital, or hurdle rate, the project will add value for the company. In the

context of savings and loans the IRR is also called effective interest rate. It can be calculated

by the formula:

**Lower The difference NPV at Lower Discount
**

Rate

**Discount + between two The Absolute
**

Rate discount rates NPVs at HDR and LDR

(HDR-LDR)

Cost-benefit analysis

**Cost-benefit analysis involves, whether explicitly or implicitly, weighing the total expected
**

costs against the total expected benefits of one or more actions in order to choose the best or

most profitable option. The process involves monetary value of initial and ongoing expenses

vs. expected return. Cost-benefit analysis is mainly, but not exclusively, used to assess the

value for money of very large private and public sector projects. This is because such projects

tend to include costs and benefits that are less amenable to being expressed in financial or

monetary terms (e.g. environmental damage), as well as those that can be expressed in

monetary terms. Private sector organisations tend to make much more use of other project

appraisal techniques, such as rate of return, where feasible.

The Benefit-Cost Ratio is given by the formula:

**BCR = Present Worth of Benefits
**

Present Worth of Costs

MODEL PROJECT ON CULTIVATION OF OIL PALM

Technical aspects of oil palm :

**Oil Palm (Elaeis guinensis Jacq.) is a native of Guinea Coast of West Africa. It belongs to
**

family Palmae and tribe Cocoineae. Oil palm is the highest oil producer among perennial oil

yielding crops. It produces two distinct oils viz., palm oil (extracted from meso carp of fresh

fruits) and palm kernel oil (from kernel). Palm oil has excellent health attributes. It is rich in

vitamins A and E and is cholesterol free. Palm oil can be used in formulation of margarine

and cooking fat such as vanaspathi. It can be used in manufacture of biscuits, ice creams,

soaps, detergents, and shampoos and also as frying fat. Palm kernel oil has variety of

industrial uses.

Financial aspects

**Unit cost: The cost of cultivation of one hectare of oil palm works out to Rs. 74800 inclusive
**

of Rs. 25000 for installation of drip system of irrigation. The cost of cultivation was assessed

based on the discussions held with National Research Centre for Oil palm, Pedavegi,

Department of Horticulture, Krishna district and farmers. The above costs are average

indicative costs. Banks may adopt higher or lower than the average costs depending on local

conditions and viability of the units. The technical and financial parameters and the cost of

cultivation are given in Annexure I and II. The following aspects have been considered in

arriving at unit cost.

**The cost of imported planting material is Rs. 55 and that of indigenous material is Rs. 50 per
**

seedling. The seedlings are supplied to farmers by the processing companies which generally

import from Costa Rica. Hence for calculation of unit cost price of Rs. 55 per seedling is

considered.

**The expenditure towards manure and fertilizer is calculated on the basis of the fertilizer
**

schedule recommended by National Research Centre for oil palm, Pedavegi and the

prevailing prices of fertilizers.

For drip irrigation, cost of drip irrigation system for oil palm as a mono crop is considered

The expenditure towards inter crop is not provided for in the unit cost since the choice of

inter crop varies from farmer to farmer. Most of the farmers avail crop loan for the purpose.

Income from inter crop has not been taken into account in financial analysis.

**Financial analysis: Financial analysis was carried out for one hectare of oil palm
**

cultivation. For financial analysis, the income was assessed on a conservative basis. The

productivity of a ten year old oil palm garden was considered at 18 ton per hectare against the

normal yield of 25 ton per hectare in Krishna district. The sale price was considered at Rs.

3500 per ton of FFB (Fresh Fruit Bunches) against the existing price of Rs. 4100 per ton of

FFB. The details of the financial analysis are shown as Annexures II and III. It may be

observed therefrom that cultivation of oil palm in one hectare is financially viable. The

major financial indicators are given below

NPV:Rs. 48104

BCR:1 : 1.49

IRR:25%

**Price: The current price of Rs. 4100 per ton is done. However, considering the magnitude of
**

fluctuations in the prices, sensitivity analysis was attempted with 10% reduction in income

and 10% increase in costs. The financial indicators after the sensitivity analysis are as under:

NPV : Rs. 23704

BCR : 1 : 1.22

IRR : 20%

**The investment is found viable even within the assumption of reduction in market
**

prices by 10%. The details of financial analysis are given in Annexure III

Conclusion:

The BC Ratio has reduced to 1.22. This means that for one rupee spent, the returns reduced to

Rs. 1.22., which is lower than the earlier value of Rs. 1.49. IRR has also reduced from 25% to

20%. The project is feasible but there is a reduction in returns after changes.

**Thus, on the basis of Sensitivity Analysis, we can find out answers to the following
**

questions:

**1. Which are the variables with high sensitivity indicators?
**

2. How likely are the (adverse) changes in the values of the variables that would alter the

project decision?
