self to planning financing and implementations as a unit, is a specific activity

with a specific point and specific ending point to accomplish a specific


To take up a new project, involves a capital investment decision and it is

the top management‘s duty to make situation and feasibility analysis o that

particular projects and means of implementing it financing is expanding field,

which focuses not on the credit status accompany, but on cash flows that will

be generated by a specific project.

Invest analysis being has its origins in the natural resource and

infrastructure sectors. The current demand for infrastructure and capital

investment is being fueled by deregulation in the power, tale communication,

and transpiration sectors by the privatization o product markets and need for

investment analysis decision may be defined as the firm’s decision to invest in

current funds most efficiently in the long-term assets in the anticipation of an

expected flow of benefits over a series of the years. The long-assets are those

that affect the firm’s operations beyond the one-year period. The firm

investment decision would generally include expansion, acquisition

modernization and replacement of the long-term assets. Sale of a division or

business is also an investment decision. Decision like the change of the

methods of sales distribution, or an advertisement campaign or research and

development programmed have long-term implication or the firm’s

expenditures and benefits, and there fore they should also be evaluated an

investment decision.

process and it is a carried out by different functional areas of management

such as management, marketing, financial management etc., All the relevant

functional departments play a crucial role in the investment decision process.

Industry Profile




The Britannia Encyclopedia describes a motor cycle as

bicycle or tricycle propelled by an internal-combustion engine (or, less often

by an electric engine). The automobile was the reply to the 19 th century

dream of self propelling the horse-drawn carriage. Similarly the invention of

the motorcycle created the self-propelled bicycle. The first commercial design

was three-wheeler built by Edward Butler in Great Britain in1884. This

employed a horizontal singled cylinder gasoline engine mounted between two

steer able front wheels and connected by a drive chain to the rear wheel. The

1900’s swathe conversion on many bicycles or pedal cycles by adding small

centrally mounted spark ignition engines.

There was then felt the need for reliable constructions.

This led to road tests and competition between manufacturers. Tourist Trophy

(TT) races were held on the Isle of Main in 1907 as reliability or endurances

races. Such were the providing ground for many new

ideas from early two-stroke-cycle design to super charged multivalent engine

mounted on aerodynamic carbon fiber reinforced bodywork.


The invention of two-wheeler is much debated issue.

“Who invented the first motorcycle?” may seem like a simple question, but the

answer is quite complicated. Two wheelers owe their decent to the safety

bicycle i.e., bicycle with front and rear wheels of the same size, with a pedal

crank mechanism to drive the rear wheel. Those bicycles in turn, descended

from high wheel bicycle.

The high-wheelers descende3d from an early type of

push bike with our pedals, propelled by the rider’s feet pushing again the

ground these appeared around 1800, used iron-branded wagon wheels and

were called “bone-crushers”, both for their jarring ride and their tendency to

toss their riders.

Gottlieb Daimler (who later teamed up with Karl Benz

corporation) is created with the building the first motorcycle in 1885.

One wheel in the front and one in the back, although it

had a smaller spring-loaded outrigger wheel on each side. It was constructed

mostly of wood; the wheels were of the iron branded wooden-spooked wagon

type and it definitely had “bone-crusher” chassis.


Most of the developments during the early phase

concentrated on three and four-wheeled design since it was complex enough

to get the machines running with our having to worry about them falling over.

The next notable two wheelers was the Miller of 1892, the first successful two-

wheeler though was the Hilder brand and Wolf Muller. Patentsed in Munich

in1894 in the French firm of DeDion-button built and engine that was to make

the mass production and common use of motorcycles possible. The first

motorcycle with electric start and a fully modern electric system, the Hendee

special from the Indian motorcycle company astounded the industry in 1931.

Before World War I, IMC was the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world

producing over 20,000 bikes per year.


The popularity of the vehicles grew, especially after 1910.

In 1916, the Indian Motorcycle Company introduced the model H racer and

placed it for sale.

During World War I, all branches of the armed forces in

Europe used motorcycle principally for dispatching. After the war, it enjoyed a

sport vogue until the great depression began in 1929. After the World War II.

Led by the manufacturer of a 125cc model, since then, an increasing number

of powerful bikes have blazed the roads.



India is the second largest manufacturers and procedure

to two wheelers in the world. It stands next only to Japan and China in terms

of the number of produced and domestic sales respectively. This destination

was achieved due to variety of reasons like respectively policy followed by

personal transport, inefficiency in the public transportation system etc. the

India two wheelers industry made a small manufacturing scooters in the

country. Until 1958, API and Enfield were the sole producers.

The tow-wheelers market was opened to foreign

competition in the mid-80’s. And then the market leaders-Escorts and Enfield-

were caught unaware by the onslaught of the 100cc bikes of the four Indo-

Japanese joint ventures. With the availability of fuel-efficient low power bikes,

demand swelled, resulting in kinetic-then the only producers of four stroke

bikes (100cc category), gaining a top slot.

The first Japanese motorcycle was introduced in early

80s. TVS Suzuki and Hero Honda brought in the first two stroke engine

motorcycle respectively. These two players initially started with assembly of

CKD kits, and later on progressed to indigenous manufacturing.

The industry had a smooth ride in the 50s,60s and 70s

when the government prohibited new entries and strictly controlled capacity

expansion. The industry saw a sudden growth in the 80s. The industry

witnessed a steady of 14% leading to a peak volume of1.9mm vehicles on


In 1990 the entire automobile industry saw a drastic fall in

demand. This resulted in a decline of 15% in1991 and 8% in1992, resulting in

a production loss of 0.4mm vehicles. Baring Hero Honda, all the major

producers suffered from recessioninFY93 and FY94. Hero Honda showed a

marginal decline in 1992.


The two wheelers market has had a perceptible shift from

a buyer market to a sellers market with a variety of choices, players will have

to compete on various fronts v.i.z. pricing, technology, product design,

productivity after sale services.

Marketing and Distribution. In short terms, market share

of individual manufactures are going to be sensitive to capacity, product

acceptance and pricing and competitive pressure from others manufactures.

As income grow and people feel the need to own a private means of

transport, sales of two-wheelers will rise. Penetration is expected to increase

too approximately to more then 25% by 2005.

The motorcycles segment will continue to lead the

demand for two wheelers in to coming years. Motorcycles sale is expected to

increase by 20% as compared to 1% growth in the scooter market and 3% by

moped sales respectively for the next years.

The four stroke scooters will add new dimensions to the

two wheelers segment in the coming future. The Asian continent is the largest

user of two-wheeler in the world. This is due to poor road infrastructure and

low per capital income, respectively policy on car industry. This is due to

oligopoly between top five players in the segment, compared to thirty

manufactures in the car industry.

Hero Honda Motors Ltd is the one of the leading

companies in the two wheelers industry. At present it is the market leader in

the motorcycle segment with around 47% the market share during FY 2000-

01. The company has emerged the most as one of the most successful

players, much ahead of its competitor an account of its superior and reliable

product quality complemented with excellent marketing techniques.



April 1984,a revolution took place in India’s two-wheeler

industry. A four-stroke revolution, that was ushered in when the HERO Group

world’s largest manufacturer of bicycles, joined hands with HONDA Motors

Company of Japan, the world-leader in motorcycles. HERO HONDA became

the first company to introduce new generation 4-stroke technology in India,

with motorcycles that set benchmark for fuel-efficiency and pollution control.

During the 80s, Hero Honda became first company in India to prove that it

was possible to drive a vehicle without polluting the roads. The company

introduced new generation motorcycles that set industry benchmarks for fuel

thrift and low emission. A legendary ‘Fill it – Shut it- Forget it’ campaign

captured the imagination of commuters across India, and Hero Honda sold

millions of bikes purely on the commitment of increased mileage.

Over 19 million Hero Honda two wheelers tread India

roads today. These are almost as many as the number of people in Finland,

Ireland and Sweden put together!

Hero Honda has consistently grown at double digits

since inception; and today, every second motorcycle sold in the country is a

Hero Honda. Every 30 seconds, someone in India buys Hero Honda’s top –

selling motorcycle- Splendor. This festive season, the company sold half a

million two wheelers in a single month-a feat unparalleled in global automotive


Hero Honda bikes currently roll out from two globally

benchmarked manufacturing facilities based at Dharuhera and Gurgaon in

Haryana. These plants together are capable of churning out 3.9 million bikes

per year. A third state of the art manufacturing facility at Hardwar in Uttranchal

will soon be commissioned to cope with sustained customer demand.

Hero Honda’s extensive sales and service network now

spans over 3000 customer touch points. These comprise a mix of dealerships,

service and spare points, spare parts stockiest and authorized representatives

of dealers located across different geographies. Hero Honda values its

relationship with customers. It’s unique CRM initiative – Hero Honda Passport

Program, one of the largest programs of this kind in the world, has over 3

million members on its roster. The program has not only helped Hero Honda

understand its customers and deliver value at different price points, but has

also created a loyal community of brand ambassadors.

Having reached an unassailable pole position in the India

two wheeler market, Hero Honda is constantly working towards consolidating

it’s its position in the market place. The company believes that changing

demographic profile of India, increasing urbanization and the empowerment of

rural India will add millions of new families to the economic mainstream. This

would provide the growth ballast that would sustain Hero Honda in the years

to come. As Brijmohal Lall Munjal, the Chairman, Hero Honda Motors

succinctly points out, “We pioneered India’s motorcycle industry, and it’s

our responsibility now to take the industry to the next level. We’ll do all

it takes to reach there”.

business (divestment) is also an investment decision. Decision like the change

in the methods of sales distribution, or an advertisement campaign or a research

and development programmer have long—term implications for the firm’s

expenditures and benefit, and therefore, they should also be evaluated as

investment decisions.



The exchange of current funds for future benefits.

The funds are invested in long—term assets.

The feature befits will occur to firm over a series of years.

Process of Investment Decisions:

Capital Budgeting is a complex process which may be divided into the

following phases.




Identification of investment opportunities:

The capital budgeting beings with the identification of potential

investment opportunities. Typically, the planning body (it may be an individual

or committee organized formally or informally) develops estimates o future

sales, which serves as the basis for setting production targets. This information,

in turn, is helpful in identifying required investment in plant and equipment

Identification of investment ideas it is helpful to:

Monitor external environment regularly to scout investment


Formulate a well-defined corporate strategy based on through analysis

of strengths, weakens, opportunities, and threats.

Share corporate strategy and respective with persons.

Motivate employees to make suggestions.

2. Assembling of investment proposals:

Investment proposals identified by the production department and other

departments are usually submitted in a standardized capital investment

proposal form. Generally, most of the proposals, before they reach the capital

budgeting committee or some body, which assembles them, are rated through

several persons. The proposal is viewed from different angles. It also helps in

creating a climate for brining about co-ordination of inters related activities.

Investment, proposals are usually classified into various categories for

facilitating decision-making, budgeting, and control.

Replacement investments.

11. Expansion investment

111. New product investment

1V. Obligatory and welfare investments.


A system of rupee gateways usually characterizes capital investment

decision-making. Under this system executive are vested with the power to

okay investment proposal up t certain limits.


Projects involving smaller out lays and which can be decided by

executed at lower levels crofter covered by a blanket appropriation for

expenditure action. Projects involving larger out lays are included in the capital

budget after necessary approvals. Before under facing such projects an

appropriation order is usually required. The purpose of this check is mainly to

ensure that the funds position of the firm satisfactory at the time of



Translating an investment proposal into a concrete project is a

complex, time consuming, and risk – fraught task.

Adequate formulation of projects:

The major reasons for delay is insinuate formulation of projects

put differently, if necessary homework in terms preliminary comprehensive and

detailed formulation of the project.

Use of the principle of responsibility accounting:

Assigning specific responsibility to project managers for completing the

project within the defined time – frame and cost limits is helpful for

expenditure and cost control.

Use of network techniques:

For project planning and control several network techniques like

PERT (programmed evaluation review techniques) and CPM (critical path

method) are available.

6.Performance Review:

Performance review, or post – completion audit, is a feed back device. It

is a means for comparing actual performance with projected performance. It

may be conducted, most appropriately. When operations of the project have


It is useful several ways:

1.It throws light on how realistic were the assumptions underlying the


11.It provided a documented log of experience that is highly valuable for

decisional making.

Importance of Investment Decisions:

Investment decisions require special attention because of the following


 They influence the firm’s growth in the term.

 They affect the risk of the firm

 They involve commitment of large amount of funds.

 They are irreversible, or reversible at substantial loss.

 They are among the most difficult decisions to make.

Types of investment decisions:

There many ways to classify investments one classification is as follows

1.Expansion of existing business.

2.Expansion of new business

3.Replacemetn and modernization

Expansion And Diversification:

A company may add capacity to its existing product lines to expand

existing operations. For example, the SCCL may increase its plant capacity to

manufactures more liquid steel. It is an example or related diversification.

A firm mat expand is activities in a new business expansion of a new

business requires investment in new products and new kind of production

activating with in the firm. If packing manufacturing company invests in anew

plant and machinery to produce ball bearings or unrelated diversification.

Sometimes a company acquires existing firms to expand its business.

Replacement and Modernization:

The main objective of modernization and replacement is to improve

operating efficiently reduce costs. Cost savings will reflect in the increased

profits, but the firm’s revenue may remain unchanged. Assets become outdated

and absolute with technological changes. The firm must decide to replace those

assets with new assets that operate more assets and therefore, are also called

cost- reduction investments.

How ever replacement decisions that involve substantial modernization

and technological improvements expand revenues as well as reduce costs. Yet

another useful way to classify investment is as follows.

 Mutually exclusive investments

 Independent investments

 Contingent investments


Mutually exclusive investments serve the same purpose and compete

with each other. If one investment understands others will to be excluded.

Accompany may, for example, either use a more intensive, semi-automatic

machine, or employ a more capital intensive, highly automatic machine for


Independent investment:

Independent investments serve different purposes and do not compete

with each other. For example, a heavy engineering company may have be

considering expansion of its plant capacity to manufacture additional

excavators of new production facilities to manufacture a new product.

Contingent investment:

Contingent investment are dependent projects; the choice of one

investment necessitates understanding one or more other investments for

example, if a company decides to build a factory in a remote, backward area, it

may have to invest in houses, roads hospitals, schools, etc. and the total

expenditure will be treated as one single investment.

Investment evaluation criteria:

Three steps are involved in the evaluation of investment.

Estimation of cash flows

Estimation of the required rate of return (the opportunity cost capital)

An application of a decision rule for making the choice.

Evaluation criteria:

A number of investment criteria (or capital budgeting techniques) are

infusing in practice. They may be grouped in the following two categories.


Investment analysis decisions have the following features:

It involves exchanges of current funds for future benefits.

They benefit future periods.

They have the effect of increasing the capacity, efficiency, span of the

regarding future benefits.

Funds are invested term-term activities.


1.Traditional techniques or non-discounted cash flow techniques he

traditional techniques are further subdivided into two, such as

A. Payback period and

B. Accounting rate of return or average rate of returns (ARR)


Pay back periods one of the most popular and widely recognized

technique of evaluating investment proposal pay back period may be defined as

that period required, to recover the original cash outflow invested in a project.

In other words it is the minimum require number of years to recover the

original cash exactly invested in a project. The cash flow after taxes is used to

compute payback period.

Payback period can be calculated in two ways 1) using formula 11)

using cumulative cash flow methods. The first methods can be applied when

the cash flow steam of each year is equal. Annuity in all the years or project

life, i.e., unitary cash flow for all the years. In this situation the following

formula is used to calculated payback period.

Payback period = Original Investment ÷ Constant Annual

Cash flow after taxes.


Initial Investment (Cash outlay)

Initial investment (Cash outlay)

Payback period = -----------------------------------------

Annual cash inflow

This second methods is applied when, the cash flow after taxes are

unique or not uniform over the project life period. In this situation, pay back

period is calculated through the process of cumulative cash flow, cumulative

process goes up to the period where cumulative cash flow equal to the actual.

Cash flows put it simple:

Payback period = year before full recovery + (un recovered amount of

investment cash flows during the years)

Accept – Reject Rule:

Acceptance or rejection of the project is based on the comparison of calculated

PBP with the

Maximum or standard payback period. Put it simple:

Accept: cal PBP < Standard PBP

Reject: cal PBP> Standard PBP

Considered: Cal = Standard PBP

Advantages Payback Period: -

The merits of payback period are

It is very simple and easy to understand.

Cost investment in calculating payback period is very less as compared

to sophisticated methods.

Limitations of payback period:

Payback period methods setters from certain limitation such as

It is cash flows after payback period

It is not an appropriate method of measuring the profitability of an

investment, as it does not consider all cash in flows yielded by the movement.

It does not taken into consideration time value of money.

There is no rationale basis for setting minimum pay back period

It is not consistent with the objective of maximizing shareholder’s wealth.

Share value does not depend on payback periods of investment projects

B. Accounting rates of return or average rate or returns


Accounting rate of returns methods uses accounting information as

received by financial statements to measure the profitability of the investment

proposal. It is also know as the return on investment (ROI). Some times it is

know as average rate of return (ARR). Average annual earning after

depreciation and taxes are used to calculated (ARR). It is measured in terms of

percentages. ARR can be calculated in two ways.

1.Weather it is clearly mentioned as accounting rat of returning it

accounting rate of returns is given in the problem, return on original investment

methods should be used to calculated accounting rate of return.

Average annual (AT or PAT)

Accounting rate of return (ARR) = --------------------------------------------X100

Original investment (OI)

I) Whenever it is clearly mentioned as average rate of returns if average rate of

returns is given in the illustration, return on average investment method should

be used to calculate average rate of return.

Average annual EAT

Average rate of Return (ARR) = ------------------------------------------X100

Average investment (AT)

ii) If ARR is given in the problem. Only one of the above methods can be used

to calculate ARR (preferably return on average investment methods).

Accept—Reject rule:

Acceptance or rejection of the project is based on the comparison of

calculated ARR with the predetermined rate or cut of value.

Accept: cal ARR> predetermined ARR or cut of rate.

Reject: cal ARR< predetermined ARR or cut off rate.

Considered: called ARR=predetermined ARR or cut off rate.

Advantages of ARR methods:

The ARR method has some merits

1.The most significant merit of ARR is, it very simple to understand and easy to


2.Information can easily be drawn from accounting records.

3.It takes into accounts all profits of the project life period.

4.Cost involvement in calculating payback of the project life very less in

compassion to the sophisticated methods, since it saves analysis time.


ARR methods Sutters from serious demerits.

It ignores the concept of to be reinvested.

It does not allow profits to be reinvested.

It ignores the concept of time value of money.

It does not differentiate between the sizes of the investment required for

each project.

It does not take into consideration any benefits, which can accurse to the

firm form, the sale of equipment, in abundance, which is replaced by the


If feels that 10 percent rate of return for 10 years is more beneficial than

eight percent rate of return for 25 years.

It is incompatible with the objective of wealth maximization to the equity


It uses arbitrary cut off as yardstick or standard for acceptance or


Modern Techniques or Discounted cash flow (DCF)


Modern /discounted cash flow techniques take into consideration almost

all the deficiencies of the traditional methods and consider all benefits and cost

accounting during the project’s entire life period. Modern techniques can be

again subdivided into three viz.

A) Net present value (NPV)

B) Internal rate of returns (IRR) or trail and error

C) Profitability indexes (PI) or discounted Benefits cost ratio (DBCR


The net present value method is one the discounted cash flow methods.

It is also know as discounted benefits cost ration methods. NPV can be defined

as present value of benefits minus present value of costs. It is the proves of

calculating present value of cash flows using cost of capital as and appropriate

rate of discount and subtracts value of cash out flows from the present value of

cash flow and finds the net present value, which may be positive or higher then

the present value of cash out flows and vice versa.

Steps involved in computation of NPV are:

Forecasting of cash in flows of the investment project based on realistic

assumption. Computation of cost of capital, which is used as discounting

factors for conversion of future cash inflows into present values.

Calculation of cash flow cost of capital as discounting rate/factor.

Finding out net present value by subtracting present value of cachet flower

present value of cash flows.

Accept—Reject rule:

An acceptance or reject rule of the project is described based on than


Accept: NPV>Zero

Reject: NPV<Zero

Consider: NPV= Zero

Advantage of NPV methods:

It takes into account the time value of money.

It uses are cash inflows occurring over the entire life period of the project

including scrap value of the project.

It is particularly useful for the selection of mutually exclusive projects.

It takes into consideration the change discounts rate.

It is consistent with the objective of maximization of shareholder’s wealth.


Net present value is the most acceptable method in comparison with

traditional method. Never the less, it has certain limitations also.

It is difficult to understand when compared with PBP and ARR.

Calculation of required rate or discounting factor or cost of capital is

difficult, with involves a lengthy and time-consuming process and presents

illustrations. At the same time calculation cost of capita is based on different


In case of project involving different cashoutlys NPV method may not give

dependable results.

It does not give satisfactory results when comparing two projects with

different life period. Generally a project having a shorter economies life would

be preferable, other things being equal.


This method advocated by jock dears, takes into accounts the magnitude

and timing of cash flows.

IRR is that rate at which the sums of discounted cash inflow DCF equal

the sum of discounted cash out flow. It is the rate at which the net present value

of the investment is zero .it is called internal rate of turn because it depends

mainly on the out lay and proceeds associated with the project and not on any

rate determined outside the investment. This method is also known by

following names.

Marginal efficiency of capital

Rate of return over cost.

Time adjusted rate of return.

Yield on investment.

Internal rate of return may be defined as those discounting factors at

which the present value of cash inflows equal to the present value of cash

outflows. It takes into account the magnitude and timing of cash flows. In case

of NPV methods, the discount rate is the required rate of return and that is

predetermined usually by cost of capital. Which determines based on external

point of views, where as IRR is based on facts, which is internal to the

proposal. It is the belt available in finance, yet at time quite a misleading

measure of investment worth.

Computation of IRR is based on the cash flow after taxes. IRR is

mathematically represented as ‘r’.It can be found by trial and error methods. In

this method the evaluation select any discount rate to capital is taken as first

trial. If calculated present value of the cash inflow is higher then the present

value cash inflows than evaluator has to try at higher rate on the other hand if

the present value of cash flows is lower than the present value of cash out

flows than evaluator has to try lower discounting factors. This process will be

repeated till the present value of cash inflows equal to the present value of cash

out flows. Generally IRR may lie between two discounting factors; in that case

analysis has to use interpolation formula for IRR. The formula is as follows:

IRR = LDF % + D F --- -------------------

Where, LDF = Discount factors of low tail.

DDF= Difference between low discounting factors & high discounting
LDPV= PV of cash inflows at low discounting factors trial.
HDPV= PV of cash inflows at high discounting factors trial.
OI= Original Investment.

IRR = A+ --------- X (B-A)

A= Discounted factors of low trial.

B= discounted factors of high trial.

C= present value of cash inflow in the low trial.

D= present value of cash inflow in the high trial.

O= original or initial out lye.


Acceptance or reject rule of the project decides based upon the

Calculated IRR& cost of capital (K0).

Accept: IRR< Cost of capital (K0)

Reject: IRR > Cost of capital (K0)

Consider: IRR= cost of capital (K0)

O = original or initial out lye.


Acceptance or reject rule of the project decides based upon the

Calculated IRR& cost of capital (K0).

Accept: IRR< Cost of capital (K0)

Reject: IRR > Cost of capital (K)

Consider: IRR= cost of capital (K0)


Merits of IRR:

IRR Attempts to find the maximum rate of interest at which funds

invested in the projects could be repaid out of the cash inflows arising

from that project.

It considers cash thought out life of the project.

It is consistent cash thought out the life of the project.

It is consistent with the objective of share hold, wealth maximization.

Demerits of IRR:

Calculating of IRR is quite tedious and it is difficult to understand.

It implies that profits can be reinvested at internal rate of return, which is

not logical.

It produces multiple rate of return, which can be confusing.

It may not give trustful results in case of unequal project life UN equal cash

out flows, and difference in the timing of cash flows.

Cost of capital-concept:

The term cost of capital is a concept having many different meanings.

The three viewpoints, regarding the cost of capital is given below.

1.From investor view point:

Investors may define it as “the measurement of the sacrifice made by

him in capital formation. For example, Mr. on investors invested in companies

is a equality share, amount Rs.1, 00,000/- invested of investing in a bank at the

rate of 7% interest. Here he had sacrificed 7% interest for not having invested

in the bank.

1.Firms point:

It is the minimum required rate returns needed to justify the used of

capital. For example confirm raised Rs. 50 Lakhs though the issue of 10%

debentures for justifying this issue, a minimum rate of returns it has to earn is

10 percent.

Capital expenditure point:

The cost of capital is the minimum required rate of return. The hurdle or

target rate of the cut-off rate or any discounting rate used to value cash flows.

For example: A is planning to invest in a project, that requires Rs.20

Lakhs as initial investment and provides cash flows for a period of 5 years. So

for the conversion of future 5 years cash flows into present value cost of capital


Cost of capital represented the rate of return that the firm must pay to

the fund supplies. Who have protected the capital? In other words, cost of

capital is the weighted average cost of various sources of finance used by the

firm. The sources are equity, performance long-term debt and short-term debt.



The pay back period (PB) is one of the most popular and widely

recognized traditional methods of evaluating investment proposals. Pay back is

the number of years required to recover the original cash out lay invested in


If the project generates constant annual inflows, the pay back period can

be computed by dividing cash in flow.


PAY BACK PERIOD = ------------------------------------


Co: Initial investment

C: Annual cash in flow

In case of UN equal cash inflows, the pay back period can be found out

by adding up the cash inflows until the total is equal to the initial cash outlay.


The accounting rate of return ARR known as the return on investment

ROI uses accounting information, as revealed by financial statements, to

measure the profitability of an investment. The accounting rate of return is the

ratio of average after tax profit divided by the average investment. The average

investment would be equal to half of the original investment if its were

depreciated constantly.


ARR = -------------------------------------- X100




The NPV present value NPV method is the classic economic method

of evaluating the investment proposals. If is a DCF technique that explicitly

recognizes the time value at different time periods differ in value and are

compare only when there equipment present values—are found out.

Ci C2 C3 Co

NPV = --------- + ------------ + ------------ + ----------------- + ------------- -- Co

i=o (I+K)i


NPV =Net present value

Cfi = cash flows occurring

K = the discount rate

N =life of the project in years

Co = cash out lay


The internal rate of return IRR method is another discounted cash flow

technique which takes account of the magnitude and thing of cash flows, other

terms used to describe the IRR method are yield on an investment, marginal

efficiency of capital, rate of return over cost, time- adjusted rate of internal

return and soon.

n Cfi SV +WC

NPV= ∑ -------- + ---------------

i=o (I+K)i (1+knn


Cfi = cash flows occurring at different point of time

IRR = L ---------- + (H-I)



L= Lower discount rate at which NPV is positive

H= higher discount rate at which NPV is negative

A= NPV at lower discount rate, L

B= NPV at higher discount rate,H


Yet another time –adjusted method of evaluating the investment

proposals is the benefit cost (B/C) ratio or profitability index (PI) profitability

index is the ratio of the present valued of cash inflows at the required rate of

return, to the initial cash out flow of the investments.


PI = ---------------------------------


Where PV: present value


In the cost effectiveness analysis the project selection or technological

choice, only the costs of two or more alternative choice are considered treating

the benefits as identical. This approach is used when the acquisition of how to

minimize the costs for undertaking an activity at a given discount rates in case

the benefits and operating costs are given, one case minimize the capital cost to

obtain given discount.


The planning of a project is a technically pre-determined set of inter

related activities involving the effective use of give material, human

technological and financial resources over a given period of time. Which in

association with other development projects result in the achievement of certain

predetermined objectives such as the production of specified goods& services?

Project planning is spared over a period of time and is not a one shot activity.

The important stages in the life of a project are:

 It’s identification

 It’s initial formulation

 It’s final formulation

 It’s evaluation (whether to select or to project)

 It’ implementation

 It’s completion and operation

The time taken for the entire process is the gestation period of the

project. The period of the project. The process of identification of a project

begins when we are seriously trying to over come certain problems. They may

be non-utilization to overcome available funds. Plant capacity, expansion etc.,

Financial Viability Analysis General:

The capital outlay of the project is Rs193.22 crores with OB removal by

hiring of HEMM. The financial viability of the project as worked out taking

into account the latest capital and the prevailing debt equity ration of 3.68:1.


The capital head wise depreciation in la summary. The deprecation is

calculated on a straight line basis considering the normal useful life of each and

every item separately and allowing 5% scrap value in the of plant & machinery

and vehicles. The depreciation cost per tonne of coal works out to Rs.126.96 as

against the depreciation cost of Rs.66.89 considered in original FR. The annual

depreciation cost on an average works out to Rs. 2539.20 lakhs.


The financial viability of the project is evaluated both at 100% and 85%

be paid towards loan installment to reduce debt component.

 Government of India should give budgetary support to as to generate

internal sources as avoided delay in sanction of new projects.

 A revision/ revival in the estimated cost should be minimized.

 Revision of selling price of coal / tones is essential and when the cost inputs

are increased other wise the project will incur losses when are executed.

 While making an estimated of the projects was portion of the revenue

expenditure to be spent should be clearly mentioned and should not be
