- capital budget: lists the projects that a co plans to undertake during the next period
o measure of performance (valuation)- CF, value of a project independent of
the rest of the firm- stand alone principle, effective way to derive
performance estimates- indirect method
- pro-forma statements consist of financial projections under a set of hypothetical
o project pro-forma CF analysis:
- stand alone principal: how CF change from undertaking a project- incremental

investm decision (profits)- earnings are not actual CF

= incremental EBIT*(1 marginal tax rate)

affect project value in competitive markets (Law of One Price), then
financing costs do not factor in investm decision
particular mixture of debt and equity a firm actually chooses
to use in financing a project is analysed separately

consequence of taking the project
direct- compute gross cash received/paid- requires tax paym in
incremental earnings (work through twice)
indirect- adjust incremental earnings for missing cash-related
- stand-alone principle decision rule: project can be evaluated by finding the
incremental CF from undertaking the project and discounting at the rate appropriate
for the project- investm is acceptable if NPV of incremental CF is +ve
- forecasting incremental earnings:
o operating expenses (accounted as expenses as they are incurred) vs capital
o incremental earnings= (incre revenue incre cost depreciation)*(1-tax)
- how to use incremental earnings to forecast the actual CF of the project
o estimating project revenue/costs: new product has initial lower sales
accelerate, plateau decline + avg selling price/cost change o/t +
competition reduces profit margins
o EBIT = incremental revenue incremental costs depreciation
