...these two currencies is 1 euro =1.3118 dollars so in order to make easier the case we will use 1.31 to round it up.
The politics of the Group related to the management of the risk of change foresee, as a rule, the coverage of the future commercial flows that you/they will have bookkeeping demonstration within 12 months and of the orders acquired (or committed in progress) to put aside from their expiration. It is reasonable to believe that the relative effect of coverage suspended in the Reserve of cash flow hedge will primarily be in relief to economic account in the following exercise.
The Group is exposed to consequential risks by the variation of the rates of change, that you/they can influence on its economic result and on the value of the clean patrimony. Particularly:
Whereas the societies of the Group sustain costs denominated in different currencies by those of denomination of the respective proceeds, the variation of the rates of change can influence the Result operational of such societies. In 2012, the general amount of the commercial flows directly statements to the risk of change you/he/she has been equivalent to 10% around of the billing. Gives the last budget of Fiat the total billing of 83 billion of euro therefore the figure that we will go to analyze is equal to 830 million of Euro.

...Netpresentvalue
In finance, the netpresentvalue (NPV) or netpresent worth (NPW) of a time series of cash flows, both incoming and outgoing, is defined as the sum of the presentvalues (PVs) of the individual cash flows. In case when all future cash flows are incoming (such as coupons and principal of a bond) and the only outflow of cash is the purchase price, the NPV is simply the PV of future cash flows minus the purchase price (which is its own PV). NPV is a central tool in discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis, and is a standard method for using the time value of money to appraise longterm projects. Used for capital budgeting, and widely throughout economics, finance, and accounting, it measures the excess or shortfall of cash flows, in presentvalue terms, once financing charges are met.
The NPV of a sequence of cash flows takes as input the cash flows and a discount rate or discount curve and outputting a price; the converse process in DCF analysis, taking as input a sequence of cash flows and a price and inferring as output a discount rate (the discount rate which would yield the given price as NPV) is called the yield, and is more widely used in bond trading.

Calculate Pay Back Period (PBP)
When the cash flows are not uniform
1. There are two Proposals. Proposal A and Proposal B. Both cost the amount of $ 60,000. The discount rate is 10%. The cash flows before depreciation and tax are as follows:
Year Proposal A Proposal B

2. Accounting Rate of Return (ARR)
3. Netpresentvalue method (NPV)
Proposal A is better than B, because ARR and NPV are higher than Proposal B

...Tesca team we were able to create a comprehensive capital budget and cash flow analysis for the proposed refrigerator project.
Through our analysis we found that the cost of capital of the project to be 13.487% and a Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) to be at a value of 9.70%. Factoring in the WACC into our projections we found that if the demand maintains at an average rate the project will be at a positive NetPresentValue of $5,997,505.31 with an IRR of 13.21%, a profitability index of 8.84, and an approximate payback period of 6.84 years. Please see Exhibits below for a snapshot of the capital budget and NPV values.
This information seemed to be very promising for the project in general. However, our continued analysis showed the project to be very sensitive to the sales price per unit of the refrigerator. We used the average demand scenario to produce a sensitivity analysis and found that with just a 5% decrease in the sales price of the refrigerator the NPV quickly dipped into a negative value thus showing the project to be extremely sensitive to the sales price of the refrigerator.
Our scenario analysis also exposed a strong probability of the project giving a negative NetPresentValue and giving a probable low Internal Rate of Return of only 4.01%. This is mainly due to the projects sensitivity to the sales price of...

2. Practice Questions
a) After spending $3 million on research, Better Mousetraps has developed a new trap. The project requires an initial investment in plant and equipment of $6 million. This investment will be depreciated straightline over five years to a value of zero, but, when the project comes to an end in five years, the equipment can in fact be sold for $500,000. The firm believes that working capital at each date must be maintained at 10% of next year's forecasted sales. Production costs are estimated at $1.50 per trap and the traps will be sold for $4 each. (There are no marketing expenses.) Sales forecasts are given in the following table. The firm pays tax at 35% and the required return on the project is 12%. What is the NPV?

Payback Analysis
Introduction
Terms and Definitions
NetPresentValue  Method of calculating the expected net monetary gain or loss from a project by discounting all expected future cash inflows and outflows to the present point in time.
Discount Rate  Also known as the hurdle rate or required rate of return, is the rate that a project must achieve in order to be accepted rather than rejected.
Return on Investment – Expected income divided by the amount originally invested
Payback Analysis – The number of years needed to recover the initial cash outlay.
Formulas
NetPresentValue = (t=1..n A * (1+r)t OR (t=1..n A/ (1+r)t
Where A = Cash flow
r = Required rate of return
t = year of cash flow
n = the nth year
Return On Investment = (Discounted Benefits – Discounted Costs) / Discounted Costs
Payback Period = Years taken to repay initial outlay .
Eg. Project Z Outlay = $ 4000
Yearly cash flows = $2000...

1. The common stock of Robin's Tools sells for $24.50. The firm's beta is 1.2, the riskfree rate is 4%, and the return on the market portfolio is 12%. Next year's dividend is
expected to be $1.50. Assuming that dividend growth is expected to remain constant
for Robin’s Tools over the foreseeable future, what is the firm's anticipated dividend
growth rate?
A)
B)
C)
D)
E)
6.65%
7.48%
9.15%
13.6%
15.0%
Solution: B
r = 4% + 1.2 x (12%  4%) = 13.6% and
$24.50 = $1.50 / (13.6%  g)
Leads to g = 7.48%
