# When NPV and IRR

do not agree
The Basics of Capital
Budgeting

1
When NPV and IRR do not
agree
 If all acceptable investments can be
undertaken by the company, it makes no
difference whether the NPV or IRR
method is used.
 However, when all acceptable investments
cannot be undertaken by the company, it
does make a difference which method is
used.

2
Two types of situation (conflict between
IRR and NPV)

##  Mutually exclusive investment

 When the acceptance of one investment will
automatically imply rejection of another investment

 Capital Rationing
 when total Rupiah investment required by acceptable
projects (positive NPVs) is greater than the amount
management is willing or able to budget fro capital
expenditures.

Outlay flows @10% NPV IRR
F 10,000 12,000 908 20% 3 1

30,000 35,400 2,179 17% 1 3
Example
 Assume that management has limited the
total capital budget to Rp 30,000
 Examination of the IRRs is not very illuminating.
 18% return on J is nice, but is it as good as, say,
20% from F, coupled with 17% from I.
 Therefore, a much better approach is to
determine the NPV of all possible subsets of
proposals that will use up to the Rp30,000
available.

All possible combinations can be grouped:

Acceptable Combined
Project Net Present Value

F, G, H 2,269
F, I 2,179
G, I 2,088
H, I 1,815
J 2,179

Why conflict in Rankings Occurs?

## 1. Size Disparity Problem :

Consider the following projects

## Projec Cash Cash NPV IRR Rank Rank

t Outlay flows NPV IRR
A 10,000 11,500 454 15% 2 1

## B 22,000 24,860 598 13% 1 2

7
 In comparison of Project A and B, note
that project B involves higher investment
outlays and higher net cash inflows that
does A.
 Think of Investment B as composite of two
investment: A and B-A, then break B up
into these two components;

8
 The result of Splitting-up Investment B;

## Investment Outlays Cash Flow IRR NPV

BA (10,000) 11,500 15.0% 454
BB-A (12,000) 13,360 11.3% 144
B (22,000) 24,860 13.3% 598

Why conflict in Rankings Occurs?

## 2. Reinvestment Rate Problem :

The conflict arise simply due to a wide disparity
in the pattern of cashflows. Consider the
following projects

Project CF -0 CF - 1 CF - 2 CF - 3

## E (10,000) 7,000 4,000 1,000

Investments with Unequal
Lives
 If a choice must be made between mutually
exclusive investments with unequal lives,
both the NPV and IRR methods can yield an
incorrect selection decision.

## A -1,000 130,000 0 18,170

B -1,000 70,000 70,000 21,520

## Please note that based on NPV, B should be preferred, but A produces

more cash flows which can be reinvested to generate more PV in year 2.
12
Replacement Chain Method
 Using this method, Investment A should be
converted to a two one-year investments.
Thus at the end of year one, it is assumed
that another investment A is undertaken.
Investment CF-0 CF-1 CF-2 NPV@10%

## Now, Investment A, with replacement, can be compared with investment

B on NPV basis since they are both two-year investment 13
Equivalent Annual Annuity
(EAA) Method
 The EAA method distributes each
investment’s NPV over the number of years
needed to obtain it
 It is done by converting the investment’s NPV
into an annuity.
Invetsment NPV PVIFAk%,n EAA
A 18,170 0.909 19,989
B 21,520 1.736 12,396

14
 Thus A actually produces more NPV per year than B
does.
 The EAA method gives the same result as the
replacement chain method without having to
determine the number of replacements required for
each.
Two year NPVA = EAAA(PVIFAk%,n)
= 19,989 (1.736) = 34,709
which, except for rounding, is equal to the NPV of
34,650 produced by replacement chain method.
15
Multiple IRR
 A further problem with the IRR is that
investment have more than one IRR. This
situation can occur when the cash flows
being evaluated have more than one sign
reversal.
