Project finance is a rapidly expanding field. Financing a project involves a good deal of risk. 6 . we will spend money in expectation of returns and which logically seems to lead itself to planning. Financing and implementation as a unit. is a specific activity with a specific starting point and a specific ending point intended to accomplish a specific objective. which focuses not on the credit status of a company. The current demand for infrastructure and capital investments is being fuelled by deregulation in the power. by the globalization of product markets and the need for manufacturing scale. telecommunications. In general a project is an activity in which. To take up a new project. and by the privatization of government-owned entities in developed and developing countries. involves a capital investment decision and it is the Top management’s duty to make a situation and feasibility analysis of that particular project and means of financing and implementing it. but on cash flows that will be generated by a specific project Project finance has its origins in the natural resource and infrastructure sectors.INTRODUCTION A project is an activity sufficiently self-contained to permit financial and commercial analysis .In most cases projects represent expenditure of capital funds by pre-existing entities which want to expand or improve their operation. and transportation sectors.
Third. The advantage of the project finance method is that the various parties.The concept of private finance is a new method based on the use of privatesector resources to build. One key advantage is the potential to use the management skills and other resources of private enterprise to provide better public services at a lower cost. companies have become aware of their own credit ratings. 7 . maintain. manage and operate public infrastructure. Finnerty ‘s definition is that. it is possible to form new publicprivate partnerships based on the appropriate sharing of roles between the Government And Private Enterprise. Interest in this approach has grown steadily as fiscal resources become more constrained. In this way. Another benefit is economic revitalization through the creation of business opportunities for private enterprise. There are three basic reasons for this trend. access to finance can be facilitated by isolating good projects from the reduced credit status of business corporations. Second. improved risk control is needed for large-scale projects. project risk can be both spread and reduced. In addition. Project Finance can be defined in many ways and there does not exist any single definition for it. First. Project financing is the raising of funds to finance an economically separable capital investment project in which the providers of the funds look primarily to the cash flow from the project as the source of funds to service their loans and provide the return of and a return on their equity invested in the project. In recent years there has been a rapid increase in the number of companies opting for project finance. (including financial institutions) which are able to control these risks most appropriately can share the various risk factors inherent to projects.
8 . A proposal for expansion of units at Visakhapatnam steel plant was made to combat to the increasing demand for steel in order to cater the needs of domestic market. industrial projects and public services based upon non-recourse or limited recourse financial structure where project debt and equity used to finance the project are paid back from the cash flow generated by the project. To study the financial planning for ongoing expansion project at Visakhapatnam Steel Plant.692 Crores as expansion project-up gradation to 6. The International Project Finance Association (IPFA) defines project finance as: The financing of long-term infrastructure.While Nevitt and Fabozzi define it as: A financing of a particular economic unit in which a lender is satisfied to look initially to the cash flow and earnings of that economic unit as the source of funds from which a loan will be repaid and to the assets of the economic unit as collateral for the loan. The overall cost of the completion cost is Rs 8. it tells about the allocation of financial resources for the project.3 MT. Need for the study: Now-a-days the Project Finance is necessary to study because to learn how the allocation of financial resource in the implementation of new project or expansion of existing project of any company.

Thereafter.1 million tonnes in 1951 to 29.4 million tonnes of steel export in 1976-77.65% per annum during 1990-2000. India once again started exporting steel only in 1975 touching a figure of 1 million tonnes of pig iron export and 1. this growth rate could not be maintained in the following decades. During 1970-80. steel exports from India began only in 1964. Once domestic demand revived. 1950-60 and 1960-70. exports declined.87 lakhs tonnes. i. the growth rate in steel production came down to 5.Steel Industry Steel is a versatile. However.e. which increased to 6. which rose to 2. the average annual growth rate of steel production exceeded 8%. During the first two decades of planned economic development. Exports in the first five years were mainly due to recession in the domestic iron and steel market.4% per annum during 1980-90.27 million tonnes in 2000-2001. If a product is not made from steel. OVERVIEW OF IRON AND STEEL INDUSTRY HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE The finished steel production in India has grown from a mere 1. constantly developing material that underpins all manufacturing activity. Though India started steel production in 1911. when the main producers exported 3.79 million tonnes in 199512 .7% per annum and picked up marginally to 6. exports again declined to pick up only in 1991-92. then it is certainly made using steel at some point in the manufacturing process.
1951.57 million tonnes. This change was brought about by deregulation and decontrol of the Indian iron and steel sector in 1991. inclusion of iron and steel industry in the list of high priority industries for automatic approval for foreign equity investments up to 74%. This was done primarily because of the inherent strengths and capabilities demonstrated by the 13 . The share of public sector and private sector in the production of steel during 1990-91 was 46% and 54% respectively. deregulation of price and distribution of iron & steel. Some of the important steps are Removal of iron & steel industry from the list of industries reserved for the public sector and also exemption from the provisions of compulsory licensing under the Industries (Development & Regulation) Act. THE INDIAN STEEL SECTOR AFTER LIBERALISATION The Indian steel sector was the first core sector to be completely freed from the licensing regime and the pricing and distribution controls.96. A number of policy measures have been taken since 1991 for the growth and development of the Indian iron & steel sector.36 million tonnes and in 2000-01 it was 2. The growth in the steel sector in the earlier decades since Independence was mainly in the public sector units set up during this period. while during 2000-01 the same was 32% and 68% respectively. The steel exports in 1999-2000 were 2. lowering of import duty on capital goods and raw materials etc. The situation has changed dramatically in the decade 1990-2000 with most of the growth originating in the private sector.
9% respectively as compared to 20% in 1995-96 and 6. The year-wise apparent consumption of finished steel since 1990-91. This fall in the growth rate of steel production has been brought about by several factors that. It is also treated as the actual domestic demand of steel in the country.2%. Change in stock is also adjusted in arriving at the consumption figures.2% in 1996-97. which was 2. The production of finished steel during 2001-02 has been 30. include general slow down in the industrial production and construction activities in the country coupled with lack of growth in major steel consuming sectors.5% compared to the previous year. the finished steel production increased to 23. The growth rate has drastically decreased in 1997-98 and 1998-99 being 2. The total production of finished steel and the share of main and secondary producers during 90's and up to 2002-03 are given in the annexure. 14 .61 million tonnes. while in 1997-98. which means a lower growth rate of about 4.37 million tonnes. During 1996-97. APPARENT CONSUMPTION OF STEEL Apparent consumption of steel is arrived at by subtracting export of steel from the total of domestic production and import of steel in the country.8% more than the previous year. inter-alia. finished steel production shot up to a record 22.72 million tonnes with a growth rate of 6.Indian iron and steel industry.27 million tonnes.60% with the total production touching 29. is given in the table in the annexure.8% and 1.

power sector. the capital goods and engineering goods industry. power. demand for steel has remained low. These include. The major reasons for the slow growth in the steel sector during the last few years include: (a) Sluggish demand in the steel consuming sectors Steel being the basic raw material for the construction industry. (b) Overall economic slow down in the country. have come up in the recent past. The figures are given in enclosed chart. The growth of the steel sector is dependent upon the growth of the economy in general and the growth of industrial production and infrastructure sectors in particular. Since no major infrastructure or construction projects have been implemented in the last few years.PROJECTIONS OF FINISHED STEEL In order to have a long-term perspective and planning. 15 . where intensity of steel consumption is high. All major core sectors of the economy have been facing an economic slow down. a Sub-Group on Steel and Ferro Alloys was constituted for steel sector under the aegis of Planning Commission.5% as realistic during the 10th Plan. the SubGroup has projected the demand for finished carbon steel in the country. as also the auto sector and white goods sector. fertilizer sector. No major projects in the oil sector. its growth is dependent upon the demand for steel by these segments of the industry. The iron and steel sector has experienced slow down from the year 1997 to 2001. Considering a GDP growth rate of 6. The Sub-Group deliberated upon all aspects including supplydemand projections for finished steel during the period 2001-02 to 2011-12.
industry. (d) Cost escalation in the input materials for iron and steel Power tariff. no major construction activity in mega projects including fertilizer. These rates have been frequently enhanced. thereby contributing to the rise in input costs for steel making. The slow down phenomenon is not restricted to the steel sector alone. This has also contributed to slowing down demand for steel. the rates of basic custom duty have generally gone up to about 35% average. coal prices etc. (c ) Lack of investment by Government/private sector in major infrastructure projects Due to budgetary constraints. Due to rationalization in the import duty structure in 1999. This has opened up the domestic iron and steel sector to international competition. railways etc. there is no shortage of iron and steel materials in the country. After liberalization. with huge scale addition to steel making capacity.2000.coal. mining and steel. Despite liberalization of the economy and relaxation in the investment norms. the steel sector would also show signs of revival. Apparent consumption of 16 . power. (e) Continuous reduction in import duty on iron and steel. Only when the overall economy of the country picks up. coal. import duty rates on iron and steel items have been gradually reduced over the years. freight rates.

certain sector like power and fertilizer projects. due to economic slow down. In 2001-02. auto sector and white goods sector have shown a slump in demand for steel.61 million tonnes. 17 . In 2001-02. nearly 51% of crude steel production was by public sector the remaining 49% was by private sector. In 2001-02. Efforts are being made to boost demand particularly in rural areas and also to increase exports. India is 8th largest producer of steel in the world.66 million tonnes in 1999-2000. PRODUCTION Steel industry was de-licensed and decontrolled in 1991 and 1992 respectively. of late. Interface with consumers by way of Steel Consumer Council exists. Steel Industry has been facing a slow down in the level of demand due to slow down of the domestic economy and that of the major steelconsuming sector. Sponge iron production was 5. In 2003-2004 steel sector market demand increased mainly because of massive construction activity taken up in China.84 million tonnes in 1991-92 to 27 million tonnes in 200102. while input cost have gone up. During 2001-2002. the integrated steel plants produced 42% of finished steel and the remaining 58% was by the secondary producers.steel increased from 14. there has been resurgence in the price level mainly of flats and demand has also witnessed an upward trend. finished steel production was 30.95 million tonnes. Pig iron production in 2001-02 was 3. Prices of iron and steel have declined in 200102 in tune with global trends. However.
viz. The incidence of import was mainly in hot rolled coils. Development Commissioner for Iron & Steel makes allocation to priority sectors. Defence. PRICING & DISTRIBUTION Price regulation of iron & steel was abolished on 16. which was about 12% less than the import in 1999-2000. Distribution controls on iron & steel removed except 5 priority sectors. In the current financial year the long product prices have increased by about 20% because of raise in demand internationally. Open Market Prices have been generally stable.which is conducted on regular basis. Exporters of Engineering Goods and North Eastern Region. the import of saleable steel in 1996-97 reached a level of 1. Government has no control over prices of iron & steel. IMPORT AND EXPORT OF IRON AND STEEL India was importing about 10 to 15 lakh tonnes of steel. Railways. Import of carbon steel during 2000-01 was about 1.80 million tonnes. cold rolled coils and semis. complaints related to quality. Due to a rise in domestic demand.1992. Interface helps in redressing availability problems. The total imports of carbon steel during six years up to 2001-02 are given in enclosed chart. Price increases of late have taken place mostly in long products than flat products. though fluctuations have been noticed.41 million tonnes.1. annually. Small Scale Industries Corporations. 18 .
The Government has fixed floor prices for seven items of finished steel viz. whereas now additional items like semis. In fact exports of non-flat products recorded a growth rate of 5. several measures have been put in place.The Industry has been able to maintain its net exporter status from the last two years in the trading of finished steel. HR sheets.7% over 2000-01. India has been annually importing around 1. HR coils. it is expected that the quantum of exports of more value added items would further increase. Imports have largely dropped. Earlier. The quantity of carbon steel exported from the year 1996-97 is as given in enclosed chart. Tinplates. colour coated sheets. bars and rods. like.5 Million Tonnes of steel. partly an indication of greater self-sufficiency and partly the ability to control inflow of seconds and defectives. Adherence to BIS norms imply 19 . GP/GC sheets and pig iron are also being exported. structural’s. To check unbridled imports of cheap/seconds & defective steel. MEASURES ON IMPORTS Iron & Steel are freely importable as per the Exim Policy. exports consisted mainly of plates. The other notable measure in this regard is that imports of certain types of steel have been subject to mandatory compliance of quality standards as specified by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). CR coils. cold rolled coils. hot rolled coils. In future.

The customs duty on second and defective HR Coils has been raised to the bound rate of 40 per cent. Moreover all manufacturers/exporters of the listed products shall be required to register themselves with the BIS. India however. net quantity in terms of standard units of weights and measures. Further protection in this regard has been the issuance of the Government notification to 3 major ports – Kolkata. Advance Licensing Scheme allows duty free import of raw materials for exports. has been exempted from the safeguard duties under Section 201 of the US Trade Laws on almost all steel products except carbon 20 . Duty Exemption Pass Book Scheme also facilitates exports. month and year of packaging and maximum retail sale price. generic or common name of the commodity. MEASURES FOR EXPORT OF IRON & STEEL Iron & Steel are freely exportable and India is a net exporter of steel.supplying information like name and address of the importer. These include: Anti dumping duty on cut–to–size plate exports from Bhilai Steel Plant of SAIL with a total duty of 72.82 per cent. Indian steel exports have been subject to anti-dumping/anti-subsidy duties actions by the stronger economies over the last few years. Anti dumping duty has been levied on import of HR coils from Russia and Ukraine.
EU has also taken AD/CVD actions on import of HR coils. China has recently imposed a safeguard duty on the import of steel. An Anti dumping Directorate has been set up under the Ministry of Commerce & Industry with adequate power to fight trade actions while remaining within the WTO framework. a Suspension Agreement with exporters like SAIL allows the company to sell at a price not lower than the agreed one. Despite the initial setbacks Indian exports have recovered . hot rolled. However. which led to the loss of major markets for the Indian steel exporters. The rising trend in Indian steel exports that was being witnessed in the last couple of years was halted due to these anti dumping actions initiated by the advanced. DUTIES & LEVIES ON IRON & STEEL 21 . such measures apply on electrical steel sheets and stainless steel wire rods.largely due to the ability to find out alternative export markets where selling steel has been profitable. This is on account of the country’s status as a developing nation. The EU has also imposed safeguard duties for India. The country-wise details are yet to be worked out. cold rolled and galvanized products in the AD/CVD actions. Steel Exporters’ Forum has been recently set up to boost steel exports. developed nations of the world. Canada has covered pipes.flanges. which ranges from 7-26%.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR GROWTH OF IRON AND STEEL The New Industrial Policy Regime The New Industrial policy has opened up the iron and steel sector for private investment by (a) (b) Removing it from the list of industries reserved for public sector and Exempting it from compulsory licensing.94. in the liberalized scenario.• • • Research & Development Rebates to SSI Corporations Expenditure on ERU of JPC Fund was abolished on 21. Cabinet decided that Corpus could be recycled for loans to Main producers. providing broad directions and assistance to new and existing steel plants. An Empowered Committee has been recently set up to guide the R&D effort in this sector.4. GLOBAL SCENARIO 23 . Ministry of Steel plays the role of facilitator. Imports of foreign technology as well as foreign direct investment are freely permitted up to certain limits under an automatic route. Interest on loans to Main Producers be set aside for promotion of R&D. Fund was discontinued on 19.96.
The global production of crude steel increased from 777 million tonnes in 1998 to 785 in 1999. USA and Canada. These are the collapse of the Soviet Union and the severe financial crisis in most South East Asian countries as well as in Korea and Japan. The world steel industry is today characterized by excess capacity and poor demand.6 million 24 . Indian exports have been subjected to Anti. After the Asian crisis. The international steel trade constituted around 279. It is in this global context that the Indian steel industry will have to cast its future role. This scenario has led to an undesirable impact in the form of increasing protectionism within the developed countries and large scale dumping in the international markets.8% of the production. In 1996.6 million tonnes or 39. The pattern of trade has been upset by two important developments. World steel industry witnessed major ups and downs in the last two decades and especially over the past five years. the Asian countries were large importers of steel. Till the recent financial crisis. The Asian crisis and the collapse of USSR have transformed importers of steel into exporters. During this year. The world steel consumption has also increased by 1%. the region got transformed into a net exporter of steel. eight of the ten largest steel producing nations were in Asia and import by the region in the mid 1990’s was around 80-90 million tonnes of finished and semi finished steel per year. There have also been instances of dumping of steel in our country.dumping/Counter-veiling duties investigations in EU.2% to 79.

Canada and Thailand are some of the other countries that have initiated safeguard investigations against import of steel products into their countries. 26 . • Cessation of gas supply in Venezuela stopped about 6 million tonnes of annualized production of steel. Net shipments of steel reported by the AISI were 7. with most of the increase going to the home market. In fact the February total was half the February 2002 total.5% up in the two months at almost 16. This can be attributed to the facts. billets and slabs were less than half what they were in the first two months of 2002. Exports of hot rolled wide coil to Canada almost doubled in the first two months. with the year to date 17% higher than in 2002. have risen. In retaliation to the US action EU has also imposed provisional safeguard measures against import certain steel products. One of the largest rises was in hot rolled wide coil.Steel imports by the USA have been falling with the total for the first two months of 2003 30% below the same period in 2002. China. and there was a very large tonnage exported to both China and Singapore in February 2003. In March 2002 the US President announced imposition of temporary safeguard measures on import of key steel products into USA. on the other hand. which more than doubled in the first two months of 2003.5 million tonnes. Total exports. On the pricing front the steel prices have been spiralling up especially since mid 2002 mainly due to the shortfall in supply. Imports of blooms.
THE GROWTH PROFILE AFTER LIBERALISATION The liberalization of industrial policy and other initiatives taken by the Government have given a definite impetus for entry. Internal consumption of China has increased. cost effective. US Dollar is weakening The fascination for cheap steel has come down. has to its credit. the 8 th largest producer of steel in the world.

which may be divided into six broad phases: Planning. Analysis.PROJECT EVALUATION Capital budgeting is a complex process. Implementation. The following chart shows the relationship among these phases Planning Analysis Selection Financing Implementation Review 51 . and Review. Selection. Financing.
Project Planning The planning of a project is a technically pre-determined set of interrelated activities involving the effective use of given 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 spread 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 evaluation (whether to select or to reject). • it’s final formulation • It’s implementation. • It’s completion and operation (Management and control to ensure targeted benefits). The time taken for the entire process is the gestation period of the project. Contents of Project report: 1. Market and marketing. 2. Size of the project. 3.

At present Vizag Steel Plant is producing 3.5 million Tonnes of liquid steel. VSP wants to expand its plant capacity to 10 million Tonnes per year by 2020. Now it is in ongoing expansion plan by increasing its capacity from 3.0 MT Stage to 6.3 MT stage in order to cater the needs of the domestic market and inturn contributing for the growth of gross domestic product rate.VSP aiming to produce at international standards of cost and quality ; and to meet the aspirations of the stakeholders. In VSP there are three coke oven batteries they produce the required coke for steel production in VSP. Due to the expansion of the plant the three coke oven batteries, existing rolling mills, steel melt shop are not sufficient. The planning for the expansion project is very essential in order to complete the project in given time. Without proper planning of the material, human and technological resources the project cannot be completed efficiently. The detailed project report helps in estimating requirements of the project and completing the project systematically. Project analyzing After the primary stages of screening, the analysis of the market, technical, financial, economic and ecological aspects are to be taken up. The focus of this phase of capital budgeting is on gathering, preparing and summarizing relevant information about various project proposals. Based on the information developed in this analysis, the stream of costs and benefits associated with the project can be defined.
Financial analysis to determine whether financial costs are properly estimated. 55 . rehabilitation. Economic analysis to determine whether the project is worthwhile from the point of view of the economy as a whole. the preparedness to execute the project including implementation plans. The appraisal of an investment proposal needs to examine the following aspects: Demand and supply analysis to determine the gap and whether product specifications.Project Appraisal In the project cycle. Organisational and managerial aspects to determine whether the Organisation has the managerial capability to implement and operate the project. for preferably through market surveys and/or other reliable forecasts of demand and supply of products/services proposed to be produced by project under consideration. Environmental aspects to ensure that the environment related issues such as protective measures. resettlement etc as may be required as per environmental guidelines have been fully covered in the project cost estimates. market plan and delivery system are soundly conceived. “PERT/CPM” chart/activity taking in to account the projects that are already being implemented by the concerned agency and resources required for implementing the project. funding is assure and the project is financially viable. preliminary establishment precedes the project appraisal proposed to be achieved through implementation of a project. Technical analysis to determine whether the specifications of technical parameters chosen realistic and optimal. In the case of an export oriented pr4oject export potential of products/services would need to be assessed.
The essential property of a sound technique is that it should maximise the shareholder’s wealth. to pay interest and other expenses and to pay dividends to shareholders. Capital investment decisions are a firm’s decisions to acquire long term assets. They involve large capital expenditure. The three steps involved in the evaluation of an investment or project. An analysis of cash flows is useful for short run planning firm needs sufficient cash to pay debts maturing in the near future. 2. 56 . modernization and replacement of the long-term assets. The following other characteristics should also be possessed by a sound investment evaluation criterion. Sensitivity / Risk analysis to assess the impact of different variables of input and output on the viability of the project is carried out which can suggest potential management activity to reduce overall project risk. Application of a decision rule for making the choice. A sound appraisal technique should be used to measure the economic worth of an investment project. The investment decision rules may be referred to as ‘capital budgeting techniques’ or ‘investment criteria’. 3. acquisition. This balance can be matched with the firm’s need for cash during the period and accordingly arrangements can be made to meet the deficit or invest the surplus cash. Estimation of cash flows. and have considerable effect on the firm’s growth and profitability. 1. The firm’s investment decisions would generally include expansion. The firm can make projections of cash inflows and outflows for the near future to determine the availability of cash. Estimation of required rate of return.

Accountants. The investment criteria or techniques are classified into two broad categories1. Some techniques are general and applicable to wide range of projects and some are specialized and suitable for certain types of investments and industries. pay back period b. Internal rate of return c.♦It should consider all cash flows to determine the time profitability of the project.
IRR equates the present value of future cash flows with the initial investment. The NPV of a project is the sum of the present values of all the cash flows. 58 Ct --------t=1 (1+r) . This method takes into account the time value of money and calculates the return on investment by introducing the factor of time element. In the NPV calculation we assume that the discount rate is known and determine the NPV. i.d.e. Ct = cash flow at the end of year t n = life of the project t = discount rate 2. it represents the net benefit over and above compensation for time and risk. NET PRESENT VALUE: N. which makes It’s NPV equal to zero. The internal rate of return of a project is the discounted rate. trail & error yield method. Cost effectiveness analysis 1. which is either positive or negative that are expected to occur over the life of the project. IRR is also known as time adjusted return. n NPV of a project = ∑ Here. NPV recognizes the fact that a rupee earned today is worth more than a rupee tomorrow. INTERNAL RATE OF RETURN: Internal rate of return is also a method that uses the concept of time value of money.P. The net present value criterion has a sound rationale underlying in it. but in the case of IRR we set the NPV equal to zero and determine the discount rate that satisfies this condition.V is a modern method of evaluating investment proposals.

BENEFIT COST RATIO: 60 . When resource constraint that time Net Operating Benefit Method will use.
Firms using this criterion specify the maximum acceptable payback period. which converts the cash flows in to the present values. PVB is the present value of the benefits. the shorter the period of payback. PAYBACK PERIOD: The payback period is the length of the time required to recover the initial cash outlay on the project. more is the desirability of the project. According to the payback criterion. PVB Benefit cost ratio = ------I Where. so this conventional technique is modified as ‘Discounted Payback Period’. If the benefits are much more than the costs then the projects are desirable and if the costs are very large with the benefits meager. The Payback 61 . It is the initial investment. 6.It is of paramount importance for the finance manager to access the benefits that the firm will accrue by taking up a certain project and the costs that are involved. the payback period less than ‘n’ is desirable and the projects with payback period exceeding ‘n’ is undesirable. The payback period does not take in to consideration the time value of money. If ‘n’ is the number of years that is fixed by the firm. the projects become undesirable.
The payback period however suffers serious drawbacks. 7. ARR is calculated on the basis of average income over the life of the project. even if the excluded project generates larger cash flows after the payback period. 3. Average income after tax 62 . If the ARR is calculated for each year using the expected net income the following generalizations can be made: 1.period is a popular method in practice as it is simple helps to tackle risk and focuses on liquidity. • It can be misleading since it ignores cash flows after the payback period. it will accept the project with a shorter period. It gives equal weight to the cash flows occurring over different periods of time. ACCOUNTING RATE OF RETURN The accounting rate of return or average rate of return on investment. The accounting rate of return tends to understate the internal rate of return for earlier years and over state for the later years. It does not consider all cash flows of the project. Inflation and creative accounting tend to create a discrepancy between the accounting rate of return and internal rate of return. Between two projects. which relates income to investment both measured in accounting terms. 2. • It does not recognize the time value of money. The ARR and the IRR can be the same if the depreciation schedule is equal to the economic depreciation schedule. • It is not a measure of profitability. is a measure of profitability.
Payback etc do not give adequate ranking of the project in case it is debt financed. if this ratio exceeds 1. While the debt is financed by various financial institutes and banks. DEBT SERVICE COVERAGE RATIO (DSCR) Projects are generally financed in a certain debt and equity ratio. 8. If the ratio exceeds 3 to 4.ARR = --------------------------------Initial investment In this method a project is accepted if the ARR is higher than the minimum rate established by the management and reject those projects which have ARR less than the minimum rate. This method would rank a project as number one if it has highest ARR and lowest rank would be assigned to the project with lowest ARR. “DSCR is the annual net project cash flow after tax divide by the annual principal plus interest charges”. IRR. The banks/financial institutions would finance the debt portion of the project cost. the project would be attractive and it would be financed by venture capitalist 63 . The equity is contributed by the promoters of the project and /or by the public if the Organisation is government owned. The ARR can be readily calculated from the accounting data and this rule incorporates the entire stream of income in calculating the project’s profitability. The various evaluation techniques like NPV.5 on the average for the duration of debt repayment.
one can minimize the capital cost to obtain a given discount. The non-discounting techniques like payback period and accounting rate of return are also considered. 64 .e up gradation to 6. The Visakhapatnam Steel Plant has two alternatives in selecting the project. In order to diversify the product mix and help reduce the dependence on import of pipes in oil and gas sector.

REGULATORY FRAME WORK: The industrial policy of India has shifted from promoting a regulatory and protective regime to a free and market oriented environment. Dereservation of industries for public sector Since 1956. expect for certain industries related to security and strategic concerns. the new policy to regulate the industrial economy was announced on 24-7-1991. • Abolition of industrial licensing New industrial policy 1991. At the outset. the same may be relied upon to make adequate disclosures in the offer documents according to the clarification issued by SEBI on 11-10-1993. feasibility studies and project reports are undertaken by merchant bankers and private consultants. Along with the abolition of industrial licensing for new units.
They do not require prior approval from the government for investment in the delicensed industries. The investment proposal may be for setting up a new unit. PROJECT IDENTIFICATION A Project is a proposal for capital investment to develop facilities to provide goods and services. Firms are free to hire technicians and get their indigenously developed technology tested abroad.existing manufacturers are now free to diversify and to manufacture any article in response to market demand. The new industrial policy 1991 has eliminated entry restrictions. forest products. The former are material based while the latter demand oriented. classified under monopolies and restrictive trade practices act 1969(MRTP ACT) had to obtain approval for their investment proposals in addition to industrial license. project idea can be conceived either from input or output side. Input based projects are identified on the basis of information about agricultural raw materials. the facility is available to industries which are able to finance capital equipment imports through foreign equity. animal husbandry. Out based projects are identified on the 94 . Foreign investment in the form of equity up to 51% is automatically approved in the high priority industries. mineral resources. The automatic approval is accorded to industries if payment is made without resort to free exchange resources. • Removal of investment controls on large business houses Earlier large firms with assets of above rs 100 Crores. licensing requirements and controls on industry.needs without obtaining prior expansion of capacity clearance from the government of india. expansion or improvement of existing facilities. a project is a specific . • Foreign investment and technology Foreign technology agreements relating to high technology and high investment in priority industries framed within certain guidelines are now automatically approved. human skills and new technical process evolved in the country or else where. finite task to be accomplished in order to generate cash flows. Now the threshold limit of assets (rs 100 Crores) has been abolished and large firms are on par with others. fishing products.
and power. project ideas are developed in to prefeasibility studies. Prefeasibility studies give output of plant of economic size . break down of cost of capital and cash flow is prepared. Feasibility study is the final document in the formulation of project proposal. raw material requirements. sales realization. Before dealing with any specific aspect. the study has to identify supply sources and present estimates. structures and yard facilities by type . Project identification is a continual process. labour requirement.the feasibility study after listing and describing alternative locations. choice of raw material and choice of plant size . The stages of project selection The identification of project ideas is followed by a preliminary selection stage on the basis of their technical. the growing demand for complex. The project selection exercise should also ensure that it confirms to overall economic policy of the government. water supply. sophisticated. economic and financial soundness. Further . The objective at this stage is to decide whether a project idea should be studied in detail and to determine the scope of further studies. it should specify out put and alternative techniques of production in terms of process choice and ecology friendliness. feasibility should examine public policy with respect to industry. The findings at this stage are embodied in a prefeasibility study or opportunity study. after that. With the opening up of economy. capital input /output ratio. costs for transportation. for the purpose of screening and priority fixation. services. total cost of production. demand for sophisticated inputs is continuously rising. customized goods and services in international markets has added a new dimension to project concept. The feasibility study should contain all technical and economic data that are essential for the evaluation of the project. power and infrastructure facilities. The cost of feasibility study can be debited to project cost and can be counted as part of promoter’s contribution. the study should include a lay out plan along with a list of buildings. should specify a site after necessary investigation. Feasibility study can be prepared by the entrepreneur or consultants or experts.basis of needs of population as revealed by family budget studies or industrial units as found by market studies and statistics relating to imports and exports. the quality and dependence of raw materials and their source of supply have to be 95 . FEASIBILITY STUDY After ensuring that a project idea is suitable for implementation. a detailed feasibility study giving additional information on financing. size and cost. The quest for new combinations of factors for optimizing output and improving productivity to strengthen the competitive position of Indian industry in the international market place is an ongoing process.
a project report is a detailed plan of follow-up of project through various stages of implementation. the commonly used methods of demand forecasting are trend. scope and content of the plan as well as inputs and infrastructure facilities envisaged for the project. its major uses. Estimation of demand requires the determination of the total demand for a product and the share that can be captured by the unit through appropriate through marketing strategies. design. the project should be able to deliver marketable product from the resources deployed. Selling arrangements contemplated in terms of direct sales or through distributors or dealers have to be classified. Estimates have to be made about existing and future demand and supply of the products proposed to be manufactured. scope of the market. an essential part of the feasibility study is the schedule of implementation and estimates of expenditure during construction . Basically. Market appraisal requires a description of the product. MARKET APPRAISAL Analysis of demand for the product proposed to be manufactured requires collection of data and preparation of estimates. possible future changes in the volume and pattern of supply and demand have to be estimated. Since cash flow projections are to be made.before presentation of the financial data. market analysis has to be covered to help in establishing and determining economic levels of output and plant size. It is also necessary to identify principal customers and state particulars of any firm arrangements entered in to with them. regression and end-use methods.investigated and presented in the feasibility report . possible competition from substitutes. at a cost which 96 . The feasibility study is followed by project report firming up all the technical aspects such as location. In a way . TECHNICAL APPRAISAL Technical appraisal is primarily concerned with the project concept covering technology. Feasibility study should present estimates of working capital requirement to operate the unit at a viable level. Financial data should cover preliminary estimates of sales revenue. special features of the product proposed to be manufactured in regard to quality and price which would result in consumer preference for the product in relation to competitive products. After collection of data . capital costs and operating costs for different alternatives along with their profitability. This would help in assessing the long term prospects of the unit. factory lay out specification and process techniques design. the existing position has to be assessed to ascertain whether unsatisfied demand exists.
Technical appraisal has a bearing on the financial viability of the project as reflected by its ability to earn satisfactory return on the investment made and to service equity and debt. The technical review done by the financial institutions focuses mainly on the following aspects: Product mix Capacity Process of manufacture Engineering know how and technical collaboration Raw materials and consumables Location and site Building Plant and equipments Man power requirements Breakeven point (The technical review is done by qualified and experienced personnel available in plant or outside experts where technologically sophisticated projects are involved). This involves an assessment of funds required to implement the project and the sources of the same. The other aspect of financial appraisal 97 .would leave a margin adequate to service the investment and plough back a reasonable amount to enable the enterprise to consolidate its position. FINANCIAL APPRAISAL Financial appraisal is concerned with assessing the feasibility of a new proposal for investment for setting up a new project or expansion of existing productive facilities.
How the current liabilities stand in relation to current assets. cost of the project and means of financing. for this. Whether there is any inter-locking of funds with associate companies Whether the concern has been ploughing back of profits in to the business and building up reserves. A balance has to be stuck between debt and equity. The latest balance sheet and profit and loss account may be analyzed with a view to ascertaining. 98 . prospective liquidity and financial returns in the operating phase. whether the concern is under/over capitalized. whether the borrowings raised are not out of proportion to its paid up capital and reserves. Whether the gross block has been properly depreciated and has not been shown at an inflated value. in appraising a project. a proforma balance sheet and profit and loss statement certified by the management may be examined. WORKING RESULTS OF EXISTING UNITS: In case of an existing unit. a debt equity ratio of 1:1 is considered ideal but it is relaxed up to 2:1 in suitable cases. It may be noted that financial appraisal is concerned with the measurement of profitability of resources invested in the project with out reference to their source.relates to estimation of operating costs and revenues. Further relaxation in debt equity is made in the case of capital intensive projects. in case an audited balance sheet as on fairly recent date is not available. this analysis is used to appraise the viability of the project as well as to rank projects on the basis of their profitability. purpose its latest audited balance sheet and profit and loss statement as well as the balance sheets for the last 5 years have to be analysed. For the purpose of appraisal it is necessary to make estimates relating to working results of existing concerns. Financial projections for a ten year period have also to be made. the project’s direct benefits and costs are estimated at the prevailing market prices. it is desirable to make an assessment of its latest financial position.
The financial appraisal seeks to assess the following: Reasonableness of the estimate of capital cost Reasonableness of the estimate of working results Adequacy of rate of return: The general norms for financial desirability are as follows: 1. The norm for promoter’s contribution in the project is 22. Return on investment: 20-25% profit after tax 3. Contribution of project cost: 30-50% 6. Internal rate of return :15% or 3-5% more than WACC 2.75 4. Stock exchange listing requirements 99 . normally the promoters contribution should be brought in by way of equity capital. If unsecured loans from promoter’s / director’s form an integral part of of the means of finance. it should be assumed that they would not be withdrawn during the currency of the loan and do not carry interest higher than that payable on institutional loans. Debt-service coverage ratio: 1. Debt –equity ratio: 1: 1 5. Equity is arrived after deducting carried forward losses in the case of an existing unit.5 to 1.All long term loans/ deferred credit are treated as debt while equity includes free reserves.5% of project cost with a lower contribution for projects promoted by technical entrepreneurs .
