Inflation
INFLATION RULE Be consistent in how you handle inflation!! Use nominal interest rates to discount nominal cash flows. Use real interest rates to discount real cash flows. You will get the same results, whether you use nominal or real figures

Inflation
Example You own a lease that will cost you \$8,000 next year, increasing at 3% a year for three years there after. The forecasted inflation rate for the 4 years is 3 % per annum. If discount rates are 10% what is the present value cost of the lease?
1+ nominal interest rate 1 real interest rate = 1+inflation rate

## Equivalent Annual Cost

Equivalent Annual Cost - The cost per period with the same present value as the cost of buying and operating a machine.

## present value of costs Equivalent annual cost = annuity factor

## Equivalent Annual Cost

Example Given the following costs of operating two machines and a 6% cost of capital, select the lower cost machine using equivalent annual cost method.

Timing
Even projects with positive NPV may be more valuable if deferred. The actual NPV is then the current value of some future value of the deferred project.
Net future value as of date t Current NPV t (1 r )

Timing
Example You may harvest a set of trees at anytime over the next 5 years. Given the FV of delaying the harvest, which harvest date maximizes current NPV?
Harvest Year 0 1 2 3 4 5 Net FV (\$1000s) 50 64.4 77.5 89.4 100 109.4 % change in value 28.8 20.3 15.4 11.9 9.4
