Estimating Project Cash Flows

To apply NPV rule, we need the project’s cash flows and the appropriate discount rate.

In this session, you will learn how to estimate a project’s cash flows. The discount rate (cost of capital, WACC) will be given to you.

estimating cash flows guidelines
Estimating cash flows guidelines

Add back depreciation to net income.

Ignore interest expense.

All project cash flows must be incremental.

Ignore allocated costs and sunk costs.

Include opportunity costs.

Include changes in net working capital.


why add back depreciation
Why add back depreciation?

Depreciation is a non-cash charge and must be added to net income to estimate cash flow.


ignore interest expense
Ignore interest expense

WACC (weighted average cost of capital) includes the interest expenses.

In determining a domestic project’s cash flows, we ignore it’s financing cost, i.e., the interest expense.


all project cash flows must be incremental
All project cash flows must be incremental

To evaluate a project, we look at the cash flows which it contributes towards the firm’s existing cash flows. In other words, we look at project’s incremental cash flows.

How to determine incremental cash flows?

Look at the firm’s cash flows without the project.

Look at the firm’s cash flows with the project.

The difference is the incremental cash flows.


ignore allocated costs and sunk costs
Ignore allocated costsand sunk costs

Allocated costs: rent, supervisory salaries, administrative costs, and various overhead expenses.

These costs are not incremental. They don’t change if the project is undertaken. Thus, they should not be considered in estimating the project’s incremental cash flows.

Sunk (irrecoverable) costs: costs which cannot be recovered regardless of whether the firm undertakes the project.

Examples: R&D expenses and consultant fees occurred already.


include opportunity costs
Include opportunity costs

Suppose the project requires the use of some asset owned by the firm.

If the asset is not used by the project, the firm can sell the asset for $X. This $X is the opportunity cost of the asset. Such a cost should be included in the project’s cost.

An asset’s opportunity cost is the money that the firm can receive if the asset is put to the next best use. The ‘next best’ use may be to sell the asset.


changes in net working capital
Changes in net working capital

Net working capital=current asset – current liability

Positive working capital is required to ensure that a firm is able to continue its operations and that it has sufficient funds to satisfy both maturing short-term debt and upcoming operational expenses. The management of working capital involves managing inventories, accounts receivable, account payables, accruals, and cash.

Very often, a project will require an initial increase in net working capital. This increase in net working capital must be added to the project’s costs.

Assume that this additional working capital is liquidated (sold for cash) at the end of the project’s life. So, this liquidation is a cash inflow in the last period.

Thompson Company has to decide whether to build a new factory. Management has collected various cost data to use to make the decision. Some of the items collected are listed below. Which of the following should Thompson consider as being relevant for computing cash flows for the new factory project?

$500,000 was spent last year to upgrade a piece of property on which the company is planning to build the new factory.

It will cost $10,000,000 to construct the factory and new equipment costing $3,250,000 will need to be purchased and installed to begin production of the product to be sold.

The factory construction costs of $10,000,000 will be financed entirely with new long-term debt (specifically a new bond issue). The company estimates that the interest costs of this new debt will be $850,000 per year.

The variable cost of production is estimated to be 65% of annual sales.

The accounting department plans to allocate supervisory and management costs of $25,000 per year to the project. No new supervisory or management personnel will be required.

You are given the responsibility of conducting the project selection analysis in your firm. You have to calculate the NPV of a given project. The appropriate cost of capital is 12 percent and the firm is in the 30 percent tax bracket. You are provided the following pieces of information regarding the project:



The project is going to be built on a piece of land that the firm already owns. The market value of the land is $1 million.

If the project is undertaken, prior to construction, an amount of $100,000 would have to be spent to make the land usable for construction purposes.

In order to come up with the project concept, the company had hired a marketing research firm for $200,000.

The firm has spent another $250,000 on R&D for this project.



The project will require an initial outlay of $20 million for plant and machinery.

The sales from this project will be $15 million per year of which 20 percent will be from lost sales of existing products.

The variable costs of manufacturing for this level of sales will be $9 million per year.

The company uses straight-line depreciation. The project has an economic life of ten years and will have a salvage value of $3 million at the end.



Because of the project the company will need additional working capital of $1 million which can be liquidated at the end of ten years.

The project will require additional supervisory and managerial manpower that will cost $200,000 per year.

The accounting department has allocated $350,000 as allocated overhead cost for supervisory and managerial salaries.


calculate initial cost
Calculate initial cost

Initial cost is the sum of:

Market value of land: $1 mil (opportunity cost)

Land improvement $100 k

Plant & machinery: $20 mil

Incremental working capital: $1 mil

Initial cost

= 1,000,000 + 100,000 + 20,000,000 + 1,000,000

= $22,100,000


calculate the annual incremental cash flow step 1
Calculate the annual incremental cash flow: step 1

Calculate the annual depreciation expense

For this project, fixed assets refer to $20mil plant & machinery. Therefore,


= (20,000,000 – 3,000,000)/10

= $1,700,000

Calculate incremental sales

Incremental sales = 0.8 x 15,000,000 = $12,000,000


calculate the annual incremental cash flow step 2
Calculate the annual incremental cash flow: step 2

the incremental income statement


consider other cash flows
Consider other cash flows

At the end of project’s life (t=10), company

Recovers $1 mil additional working capital (item 9)

Receives $3 mil salvage value from plant & machinery (item 8)

Additional cash flows at end of project

= 1,000,000 + 3,000,000

= $4,000,000


let s bring all the cash flows together 1
Let’s bring all the cash flows together 1

CF0 (initial cost) = $22,100,000

Annual incremental after-tax cash flow (Year 1 through Year 10) = $2,470,000

Additional cash flow in Year 10 = $4,000,000

So in year 10, the company receives a total of = 2,470,000 + 4,000,000 = $6,470,000


let s bring all the cash flows together 2
Let’s bring all the cash flows together 2

To compute NPV, enter cash flows in this way:

CF0 = -22,100,000

C01 = 2,470,000, F01=9

C02 = 6,470,000, F02=1

Then press NPV, enter I = 12, press CPT and NPV.

NPV = -$6,856,056.17

Decision: reject the project.

ABC Corp. manufactures television sets and computer monitors. The company is considering introducing a new 40” flat screen television/monitor. The company’s CFO has collected the following information about the proposed product.



1) The project has an anticipated economic life of 5 years.

2) The company will have to purchase a new machine to produce the screens. The machine has an up front cost (t = 0) of $4,000,000. The machine will be depreciated on a straight-line basis over 5 years. The company anticipates that the machine will last for five years and then have no salvage value (that is, it will be worthless).



3) If the company goes ahead with the proposed product, it will have to increase net working capital by $200,000. At t = 5, the net working capital will be recovered after the project is completed.

4) The screen is expected to generate sales revenue of $2,000,000 the first year; $4,500,000 the second through fourth years and $3,000,000 in the fifth year. Each year the operating costs (excluding depreciation) are expected to equal 50% of sales revenue.



5) The company’s interest expense each year will be $350,000.

6) The new screens are expected to reduce the sales of the company’s large screen TV’s by $500,000 per year.

7) The company’s cost of capital is 12%.

8) The company’s tax rate is 30%.



What is the initial investment for the project?

What is the 3rd year expected incremental operating cash flow? (i.e., the incremental after tax cash flow)

What is the 5th year incremental non-operating cash flow?


q1 initial investment
Q1: initial investment

To answer Q1, you need points 2 & 3.

Initial investment

= machine cost + change in net working capital

= 4,000,000 + 200,000

= $4,200,000


q2 3 rd incremental operating cash flow
Q2: 3rd incremental operating cash flow

To answer Q2, you need points 2,4,6,8.


1) Incremental sales

= 4,500,000 – 500,000 = 4,000,000

2) Annual depreciation = (4,000,000)/5 = 800,000

3) Incremental operating cost for 3rd year

= 0.5 x 4,500,000 = 2,250,000

Next, draw up the incremental income statement


q3 5 th year incremental non operating cash flow
Q3: 5th year incremental non-operating cash flow

Very simple. The only incremental non-operating cash flow is the cash flow from liquidating the increase in net working capital (point 3).

5th year incremental non-operating cash flow = $200,000
