Introduction to Managerial Finance Ch. 4: Time Value of Money (Valuing Cash Flow) 4.1 Valuing a Stream of Cash Flows: Stream of cash flows – series of cash flows that lasts for several periods and is represented on a timeline. Applying the rules of valuing cash flows to a cash flow stream:  Rule 1 – values in the same point in time can be compared or combined.  Rule 2 – We must compound a cash flow to calculate its future value. Formula: C X (1+r)^n.  Rule 3 – we must discount a cash flow’s future value to find the present value. Formula: C/(1+r)^n. - General formula for the present value of a cash flow stream:  PV= C+C1/(1+r)+C2/(1+r)^2+…+CN/(1+r)^N. o The present value is the amount needed to invest today to obtain the cash flows stream C0, C1, …,CN. 4.2 Perpetuities: Perpetuities – stream of cash flows that are equal in which occurring at regular intervals that last forever. Consol (perpetual bond) – a British government bond that promise the owner equal cash flows every year, forever. - Present value of a perpetuity with payment C and interest rate f is given by: PV= C/(1+r)+C/(1+r)^2+C/(1+r)^3+… - Present Value of a Perpetuity= PV (C in Perpetuity)= C/r 4.3 Annuities: Annuity – stream consisting of a fixed number of equal cash flows paid at regular intervals that ends after a specified time period. Present Value of an Annuity: PV (Annuity of C for N Periods with Interest Rate r) = C X 1/r(1-1/(1+r)^N) Future Value of an Annuity: - In order to know the value N years in the future, we move the present value N periods forward on the timeline. FV (Annuity) = PV X (1+r)^N = C/r(1-1/(1+r)^N) X (1+r)^N = C X 1/r((1+r)^N-1)  This formula is useful for the purpose of knowing how much a savings account will grow over time if the investor deposits the same amount every period. 4.4 Growing Cash Flows: Introduction to Managerial Finance Growing Perpetuity – a stream of cash flows that happens at regular intervals and grows at a constant rate forever.  For example: a growing perpetuity with a first payment of $200 that grows at a rate of 5% has the following timeline: $200 for the first year. $200 X 1.05 = $210 for the second year. $210 X 1.05 = $220.5 for the third year. $220.5 X 1.05 = $231.53 for the fourth year. Present Value of a Growing Perpetuity: PV(Growing Perpetuity) = C/r-g Growing Annuity – a stream of N growing cash flows that is paid at regular intervals.  For example: C is year 1. C(1+g) is year 2 … C(1+g)^N-1 is year N. Present Value of a Growing Annuity: PV= C x 1/r-g(1-(1+g/1+r)^N) 4.5 Solving for Variables Other Than Present Value or Future Value: - Used to solve for variables that we are given as inputs to calculate situations such as: the required loan payments needed to repay for a loan or to calculate how long it will take for your balance to reach a certain level when a deposit is made. For example:  Initial Investment: $120,000  Equal Annual payments for the next 12 years  Interest rate: 6% $120,000 = PV(12-year annuity of C per year, evaluated at the loan rate) - Use the formula for present value of an annuity 120,000 = C X 1/0.06(1-1/1.06^12) = C X 8.38 C = 120,000/8.38 = $ 14,319 annually Cash Flow in an Annuity (Loan Payment): C = P/(1/r)(1-(1/(1+r)^N)) Future Value of an annuity:  Amount of money you would like to have saved in the future: $50,000  When is the future? (For how long): 12 years  Interest rate per year on savings: 5% $50,000 = FV(annuity) = C X (1/0.05)(1.05^12-1) = C X 15.917 C = 50,000/15.917 = $3,141. Thus, you need to save $3,141 per year. If you do, then at a 5% interest rate your savings will grow to $50,000 in 12 years. Rate of Return Introduction to Managerial Finance - The rate of return of an investment opportunity is the rate at which the benefits exactly makes up the cost. For example:  Suppose you have an investment opportunity that requires a $1,500 investment today.  It will have a payoff of $3,000 in 8 years. 1,500 = 3,000/(1+r)^8 Rearranging: 1,500 X (1+r)^8 = 3,000 Solve for r: 1+ r = (3,000/1,500)^(1/8) = 1.091 1.091 – 1 = .0905 r = .0905 or 9.05%. This is the ROR. Making this investment is similar to earning 9.05% per year on your money for 8 years. Investing an amount P today, and receive FV in N years: Formula: P X (1+r)^N = FV 1 + r = (FV/P)^(1/N) - The annuity formulas are used to calculate how long it will take to save a fixed amount of money. 4.6 Non-Annual Cash Flows: - Annual cash flow streams do not only occur every year, it also occur monthly as long as: 1) The interest rate is specified as a monthly rate. 2) # of periods is expressed in months. For example:  Interest rate: 5% per month  Present value: $2,000  Time frame for not making payments: 4 months FV = C X (1+r)^n = $2,000 X (1.05)^4 = $2431.01 - R is equal to the monthly interest rate and N is equal to the number of months. - We apply the same future value formula.
