  • Note the irony of scenario 1: our workers are too sick to make the medicine.
  • To find 3.16987, use your financial calculator to find the PV of an annuity that pays $1 per period for 4 periods when the discount rate is 10%.

    1. 1. Capital Budgeting in Uncertainty
    2. 2. Sensitivity Analysis, Scenario Analysis, and Break-Even Analysis  Allows us to look behind the NPV number to see how firm our estimates are  When working with spreadsheets, try to build your model so that you can just adjust variables in a few cells and have the NPV calculations respond to that
    3. 3. Sensitivity Analysis: Baldwin Company  We can see that NPV is very sensitive to changes in price  In the Baldwin Company example, a 10% drop in price leads to a 82% drop in NPV  For every 1% drop in price we can expect roughly a 8.2% drop in NPV
    4. 4. Scenario Analysis: Baldwin Company   A variation on sensitivity analysis is scenario analysis. For example, the following three scenarios could apply to Baldwin Company: 1. 2. 3.  In the next years bowling becomes very popular because of a blockbuster movie showing it as a cool and hip pastime for young people. The next years are normal and sales meet expectations. The next years see a 3 D computer graphics breakthrough introducing a virtual form of bowling that begins to compete with the physical version. For each scenario, calculate the NPV.
    5. 5. Break-Even Analysis: Baldwin Company  Another way to examine variability in our forecasts is break-even analysis  In the Stewart Pharmaceuticals example, we could be concerned with break-even sales volume or break-even price  To find either, we need to find the level of sales volume or price at which NPV becomes zero
    6. 6. Monte Carlo Simulation  Monte Carlo simulation is a further attempt to model real-world uncertainty  Monte Carlo simulation of capital budgeting projects is often viewed as a step beyond either sensitivity analysis or scenario analysis  Replace deterministic point estimates with probabilistic range estimates
    7. 7. Monte Carlo Simulation (contd.)  Run large number of iterations  For each iteration a random number is picked for each of the variables modeled probabilistically  For each iteration, NPV is calculated  Based on all iterations, a probability distribution of NPV is obtained  Different levels of NPV at different confidence levels instead of a single NPV number
