Capital Budgeting  Meaning of capital budgeting  Significance  Capital budgeting process  Investment criteria  Methods of capital budgeting
  8. 8. Meaning  The process through which different projects are evaluated is known as capital budgeting  Capital budgeting is defined “as the firm’s formal process for the acquisition and investment of capital. It involves firm’s decisions to invest its current funds for addition, disposition, modification and replacement of fixed assets”.  “Capital budgeting is long term planning for making and financing proposed capital outlays”- Charles T Horngreen.  “Capital budgeting consists in planning development of available capital for the purpose of maximising the long term profitability of the concern” – Lynch  The main features of capital budgeting are a. potentially large anticipated benefits b. a relatively high degree of risk c. relatively long time period between the initial outlay and the anticipated return. - Oster Young Significance of capital budgeting  The success and failure of business mainly depends on how the available resources are being utilised.  Main tool of financial management  All types of capital budgeting decisions are exposed to risk and uncertainty.  They are irreversible in nature.  Capital rationing gives sufficient scope for the financial manager to evaluate different proposals and only viable project must be taken up for investments.  Capital budgeting offers effective control on cost of capital expenditure projects.  It helps the management to avoid over investment and under investments. Capital budgeting process involves the following 1. Project generation: Generating the proposals for investment is the first step. The investment proposal may fall into one of the following categories:  Proposals to add new product to the product line,  proposals to expand production capacity in existing lines  proposals to reduce the costs of the output of the existing products without altering the scale of operation.  Sales campaining, trade fairs people in the industry, R and D institutes, conferences and seminars will offer wide variety of innovations on capital assets for investment.  Project Evaluation: it involves two steps
  9. 9.  Estimation of benefits and costs: the benefits and costs are measured in terms of cash flows. The estimation of the cash inflows and cash outflows mainly depends on future uncertainities. The risk associated with each project must be carefully analysed and sufficeint provision must be made for covering the different types of risks.  Selection of an appropriate criteria to judge the desirability of the project: It must be consistent with the firm’s objective of maximising its market value. The technique of time value of money may come as a handy tool in evaluation such proposals.  Project Selection: No standard administrative procedure can be laid down for approving the investment proposal. The screening and selection procedures are different from firm to firm.  Project Evaluation: Once the proposal for capital expenditure is finalised, it is the duty of the finance manager to explore the different alternatives available for acquiring the funds. He has to prepare capital budget. Sufficient care must be taken to reduce the average cost of funds. He has to prepare periodical reports and must seek prior permission from the top management. Systematic procedure should be developed to review the performance of projects during their lifetime and after completion. The follow up, comparison of actual performance with original estimates not only ensures better forecasting but also helps in sharpening the techniques for improving future forecasts. Factors influencing capital budgeting  Availability of funds  Structure of capital  Taxation policy  Government policy  Lending policies of financial institutions  Immediate need of the project  Earnings  Capital return  Economical value of the project  Working capital  Accounting practice  Trend of earnings Methods of capital budgeting Traditional methods  Payback period  Accounting rate of return method
  10. 10. Discounted cash flow methods  Net present value method  Profitability index method  Internal rate of return Pay back period method It refers to the period in which the project will generate the necessary cash to recover the initial investment. It does not take the effect of time value of money. It emphasizes more on annual cash inflows, economic life of the project and original investment. The selection of the project is based on the earning capacity of a project. It involves simple calcuation, selection or rejection of the project can be made easily, results obtained is more reliable, best method for evaluating high risk projects. Cons  It is based on principle of rule of thumb,  Does not recognize importance of time value of money,  Does not consider profitability of economic life of project,  Does not recognize pattern of cash flows,  Does not reflect all the relevant dimensions of profitability. Accounting Rate of Return method IT considers the earnings of the project of the economic life. This method is based on conventional accounting concepts. The rate of return is expressed as percentage of the earnings of the investment in a particular project. This method has been introduced to overcome the disadvantage of pay back period. The profits under this method is calculated as profit after depreciation and tax of the entire life of the project.  This method of ARR is not commonly accepted in assessing the profitability of capital expenditure. Because the method does to consider the heavy cash inflow during the project period as the earnings with be averaged. The cash flow advantage derived by adopting different kinds of depreciation is also not considered in this method. Accept or Reject Criterion: Under the method, all project, having Accounting Rate of return higher than the minimum rate establishment by management will be considered and those having ARR less than the pre-determined rate. This method ranks a Project as number one, if it has highest ARR, and lowest rank is assigned to the project with the lowest ARR. Merits  It is very simple to understand and use.  This method takes into account saving over the entire economic life of the project. Therefore, it provides a better means of comparison of project than the pay back period.
  11. 11.  This method through the concept of "net earnings" ensures a compensation of expected profitability of the projects and  It can readily be calculated by using the accounting data. Demerits  1. It ignores time value of money.  2. It does not consider the length of life of the projects.  3. It is not consistent with the firm's objective of maximizing the market value of shares.  4. It ignores the fact that the profits earned can be reinvested. - Discounted cash flow method Time adjusted technique is an improvement over pay back method and ARR. An investment is essentially out flow of funds aiming at fair percentage of return in future. The presence of time as a factor in investment is fundamental for the purpose of evaluating investment. Time is a crucial factor, because, the real value of money fluctuates over a period of time. A rupee received today has more value than a rupee received tomorrow. In evaluating investment projects it is important to consider the timing of returns on investment. Discounted cash flow technique takes into account both the interest factor and the return after the payback 'period. Discounted cash flow technique involves the following steps:  Calculation of cash inflow and out flows over the entire life of the asset.  Discounting the cash flows by a discount factor  Aggregating the discounted cash inflows and comparing the total so obtained with the discounted out flows. Net present value method It recognises the impact of time value of money. It is considered as the best method of evaluating the capital investment proposal. It is widely used in practice. The cash inflow to be received at different period of time will be discounted at a particular discount rate. The present values of the cash inflow are compared with the original investment. The difference between the two will be used for accept or reject criteria. If the different yields (+) positive value , the proposal is selected for invesment. If the difference shows (-) negative values, it will be rejected. Pros: It recognizes the time value of money. It considers the cash inflow of the entire project. It estimates the present value of their cash inflows by using a discount rate equal to the cost of capital. It is consistent with the objective of maximizing the welfare of owners.
  12. 12. Cons: It is very difficult to find and understand the concept of cost of capital It may not give reliable answers when dealing with alternative projects under the conditions of unequal lives of project. Internal Rate of Return It is that rate at which the sum of discounted cash inflows equals the sum of discounted cash outflows. It is the rate at which the net present value of the investment is zero. It is the rate of discount which reduces the NPV of an investment to zero. It is called internal rate because it depends mainly on the outlay and proceeds associated with the project and not on any rate determined outside the investment. Merits of IRR method  It consider the time value of money  Calculation of casot of capital is not a prerequisite for adopting IRR  IRR attempts to find the maximum rate of interest at which funds invested in the project could be repaid out of the cash inflows arising from the project.  It is not in conflict with the concept of maximising the welfare of the equity shareholders.  It considers cash inflows throughout the life of the project. Cons  Computation of IRR is tedious and difficult to understand  Both NPV and IRR assume that the cash inflows can be reinvested at the discounting rate in the new projects. However, reinvestment of funds at the cut off rate is more appropriate than at the IRR.  IT may give results inconsistent with NPV method. This is especially true in case of mutually exclusive project.

Step 3: Apply the different techniques  Pay back period= No. of years + Amt to recover/ total cash of next years.  ARR = Average Profits after tax/ Net investment x 100  NPV= PV of cash inflows – PV of cash outflows  Profitability index = PV of cash inflows/ PV of cash outflows  IRR : Pay back factor: Cash outflow/ Avg cash inflow p.a.

  14. 14.  Retaining control  Cost of capital  Cash flows  Flexibility  Purpose of finance  Asset structure EXTERNAL  Size of the company  Nature of the industry  Investors  Cost of inflation  Legal requirements  Period of finance  Level of interest rate  Level of business activity  Availability of funds  Taxation policy  Level of stock prices  Conditions of the capital market Optimal capital structure The OCM can be defined as “ that capital structure or combination of debt and equity that leads to the maximum value of the firm” OCM maximises the value of the company and hence the wealth of its owners and minimise the company’s cost of capital. the following consideration should be kept in mind while maximising the value of the firm in achieving the goal of the optimal capital structure:  If ROI > the fixed cost of funds, the company should prefer to raise the funds having a fixed cost, such as, debentures, Loans and PSC. It will increase EPS and MV of the firm.  If debt is used as a source of finance, the firm saves a considerable amount in payment of tax as interest is allowed as a deductible expense in computation of tax.  It should also avoid undue financial risk attached with the use of increased debt financing  The Capital structure should be flexible. Point of indifference / Range of earnings The earnings per share, ‘equivalent point’ or ‘point of indifference’ refers to that EBIT, level at which EPS remains the same irrespective of Different alternatives of Debt-Equity mix. At this level of EBIT, the rate of return on capital employed is equal to the cost of debt and this is also known as the break-even level of EBIT for alternative financial plans Capital Gearing CG means the ratio between the various types of securities in the capital structure of the company. A company is said to e high-gear when it has proportionately higher/larger
  15. 15. issue of Debt and PS for raising the LT resources. Whereas low-gear stands for a proportionately large issue of equity shares. Leverage Leverage-an Increased means of accomplishing some purpose In financial management, it is the firms ability to use fixed cost assets or funds to increase the returns to its owners; Financial leverage- the use of long term fixed income bearing debt and preference share capital along with the equity share capital is called financial leverage or trading on equity A Firm is known to have a favourable leverage if its earnings are more than what debt would cost. On the contrary, if it does not earn as much as the debt costs then it will be known as an unfavourable leverage. Impact of financial leverage When the d/f b/w the earnings from assets financed by fixed cost funds and cost of these funds are distributed to the equity stockholders, they will get additional earnings without increasing their own investment. Consequently, the EPS and the Rate of return on ESC will go up. On the contrary, if the firm acquires fixed cost funds at a higher cost than the earnings from those assets then the EPS and return on equity capital will decrease. Significance of financial leverage  Planning of capital structure  Profit planning Limitations of FL/ trading on equity  Double-edged weapon  Beneficial only to companies having stability in earnings  Increases risk and rate of interest  Restriction from financial instruments Operating leverage Operating leverage results from the presence of fixed costs the help in magnifying net operating income fluctuations flowing from small variations in revenue. The changes in sales are related to changes in the revenue. The fixed costs do not change with the changes in sales, any increase in sales, FC remaining the same, will magnify operating revenue OL shows the ability of a firm to use fixed operating cost to increase the effect of change in sales and the charges in fixed operating income. Combined leverage  The OL affects the income which is the result of production. On the other hand, FL is the result of financial decisions. The CL focuses attention on the entire income of the concern  This leverage shows the relationship between a change in sales and the corresponding variation in taxable income. Working capital leverage This leverage measures the sensitivity of ROI of changes in the level of current assets. Dividend Decisions Meaning
  16. 16. Types of Dividend policies Factors influencing dividend policy Forms of dividend Meaning The term dividend refers to that part of profits of a company which is distributed by the company among its shareholders. It is the reward of the shareholders for investments made by them in the shares of the company. Dividend policy and significance of dividend policy It refers to the policy that the management formulates in regard to earnings for distribution as dividends among shareholders. it determines the division of earnings between payments to shareholders and retained earnings. Significance of dividend policy  The firm has to balance between the growth of the company and the distribution to the shareholders  It has a critical influence on the value of the firm  It has to also to strike a balance between the long term financing decision( company distributing dividend in the absence of any investment opportunity) and the wealth maximisation Contd.....  The market price gets affected if dividends paid are less.  Retained earnings helps the firm to concentrate on the growth, expansion and modernisation of the firm  To sum up, it to a large extent affects the financial structure, flow of funds, corporate liquidity, stock prices, growth of the company and investor’s satisfaction. Factors influencing the dividend decision  Stability of earnings  Financing policy of the firm  Liquidity of funds  Dividend policy of competitive firms  Past dividend rates  Debt obligation  Ability to borrow Stability of dividends/ regularity It is the desirable policy of the management to distribute the shareholders a certain percentage of earnings as a reward for their investment. It may not always relate to the earnings of the company. Dividend practices:  Constant dividend per share  Constant percentage of net earnings  Small constant dividend per share plus extra earnings  Dividend as a fixed percentage of market value
  17. 17. Significance of stability of dividend  Confidence among shareholders  Investors desire for current income  Institutional investor’s requirement  Stability in market prices of shares  Raising additional finances  Spreading of ownership of outstanding shares  Reduces the chances of loss of control  Market for debentures and preference shares. Forms of Dividend  Scrip Dividend- An unusual type of dividend involving the distribution of promissory notes that call for some type of payment at a future date.  Bond Dividend- A type of liability dividend paid in the dividend payer's bonds .  Property Dividend- A stockholder dividend paid in a form other than cash, scrip, or the firm's own stock.  Cash Dividend- A dividend paid in cash to a company's shareholders, normally out of the its current earnings or accumulated profits  Debenture Dividend  Bonus share or Stock dividends- A dividend payment made in the form of additional shares, rather than a cash payout.  Optional Dividend- Dividend which the shareholder can choose to take as either cash or stock. Objectives of stock dividend  Conservation of cash  Lower rate of dividend  Financing expansion programmes  Transferring the formal ownership of surplus and reserves to the shareholders  Enhanced prestige  Widening share market  True presentation of earning capacity Merits of Stock dividend  To the company  Maintenance of liquidity position  Satisfaction of shareholders  Economical issue of capitalisation  Remedy for under capitalisation  Enhance prestige  Widening the share for market  Finance for expansion programmes  Conservation of control Demerits of stock dividend  To the company  Increase in the capitalisation of the company  It results in more liability  Denies other investors to shareholders
  18. 18.  Management control not diluted it may lead to fraud DIVIDEND DECISIONS Dividend is the portion of earnings which is Distributed among the shareholders.
