Operating Cash Flows
Joyce, Student (MBA), United States
What is the NPV of a project that has cost of 52,125 and net cash flows of 12,000 per year for 8 years with a cost of capital of 12 percent?




Operating CashflowsMukela Namushi Mubano, Accountant, Zambia 12,000 x 4.968 (discount factor) = 59,616.
NPV = 59,616  52,125 = 7,491
The project could be undertaken since the NPV is positive. However, one should not overlook the qualitative effects of deciding to go ahead with the project. 



Calculating Discount FactorMark May, Student (University), United States The discount factor is arrived from (p/a, i, n) using compound interest table, where under p/a I = 12, n=8.
Or in Excel =pv(i, n,1) which is = pv(.12,8,1) = 4.9676. 



Caculating Discount FactorKATHRYN STEINER, MBA, Entrepreneur, United States Right, finding the present value. Pv = fvn/(1+1)n
