EGR 403 - Cal Poly Pomona - SA10

Occurs when a cash flow produces more than one point at which NPW = 0. This happens when there is more than one sign change in the cash flow series

Example 7A-1

EGR 403 - Cal Poly Pomona - SA10

This series of cash flows produces two solutions for IRR: 10.2% and 47.3%.

Cash Flow Rule of Signs

• This happens when we convert the IRR equation to a polynomial.

• Then, by Descartes’ rule

EGR 403 - Cal Poly Pomona - SA10

• There may be as many positive values of “i” as there are sign changes in the cash flow.

• Sign changes are counted when:

• + To -.

• - To +.

• A zero cash flow is ignored.

EGR 403 - Cal Poly Pomona - SA10

• Giving your friend a loan and not being paid back.

In either case no “i” can be computed.

EGR 403 - Cal Poly Pomona - SA10

• We use an “external rate of return” to adjust cash flows so that we have only one sign change.

• External interest rate is almost like a money market rate and is different than the MARR.

• Move the least amount of positive cash flow forward that you can to eliminate all but one sign change. (Note: Cannot move negatives cash flows forward)

EGR 403 - Cal Poly Pomona - SA10

• We have two sign changes.

• The easiest way to reduce that to one is by moving the cash flow in years 0 and 1 to year 2.

• Use the “external interest rate” to move the two cash flows ahead

• 8.4% is a more realistic IRR for this project than 10.2% or 47.3%
