Net Present Value
Net Present Value (NPV) is used in capital budgeting to analyze the profitability of an investment or project. NPV is found by subtracting the present value of the after-tax outflows from the present value of the after-tax inflows. Investments with a positive NPV increase shareholder value and those with a negative NPV reduce shareholder value. In order to compute the NPV for Worldwide Paper Company, we have to calculate the cash flow in capital budgeting of the project as below. | | 2007| 2008| 2009| 2010| 2011| 2012| 2013| Terminal Cash flow| A| Fixed Assets| | | | | | | | |
