Capital Budgeting / Project Appraisals / Investment Analysis

What is it and when is it usually required?

Businesses typically conduct capital budgeting exercises and investment analyses to evaluate the economic feasibility of major projects, investments, or significant capital expenditures such as new plants or equipment.

It’s a best practice to perform this evaluation before significant spending or investment to determine the value and contribution of the investment, its comparison to other investments, and how it aligns with the business’s benchmarks and targets (such as internal hurdle rates, Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC), and profitability targets).

In cases where a loan from a financial institution is being considered to fund the investment, a capital budgeting analysis can be particularly valuable. It helps assess projected cash flows (inflows and outflows) against various funding options and the cash flows required to service that funding obligation.

How we can help/our service offering to you:
  • We assess the feasibility of capital expenditure projects and investments, determining projected cash flows, profitability, Net Present Value (NPV), Internal Rate of Return (IRR), and Project Payback period for informed decision-making.
  • We assess cash flows from various funding options against the projected cash flows, helping businesses identify potential cash flow risks and how the different options compare.
