The new link works, thanks.

The solution is quite bad explained indeed.

For the NPV in the first case, you get -50M as follows:

Data:

- Investment: 300M
- Quantity: 500k
- Price: 1850
- Cost: 1800
- Discount rate: 10%

Thus profit margin is 50. Multiplied times 500k you get 25M. Using the perpetuity formula with 10% discount rate, you get 250M in the lifetime of operations (25M/10%).

Thus the net result is -300M+250M = -50M

For the minimum price, you get 2025 as follows.

Data:

- Investment: 300M
- Old quantity: 300k
- Old price: 2300
- Old cost: 2000
- New quantity: 500k
- New price: x
- New cost: 1800
- Discount rate: 10%

For some reasons not clearly explained, the case assumes that you will produce the 300k at the old cost, plus the additional 500k at the new cost. Thus:

New profits – Investment = Old profits

((x-2000)*300k)/10% +((x-1800)*500k)/10%-300M=((2300-2000)*300k)/10%

Where x is the minimum price. Solving the equation you get

x*3M-6B+x*5M-9B-300M=900M

x=16.2B/8M=2025

Hope this helps,

Francesco

Use the Net Present Value (NPV) to compare investments with different volatile cash-flows over time and quantitatively assess their attractiveness.

Valuation case studies require you to estimate how much a firm, patent, or service is worth. For these cases, use the Discounted Cash Flow method or the Industry multiple method.
