Why Choose this Workshop?

In today’s challenging environment it is important for businesses to maintain their competitive position. They need to ensure that they are offering attractive, up-to-date, high quality products to their customers. A company that was successful in 2016 cannot assume that their success will continue through to 2020, unless they are prepared to make new investments on a regular basis.

This PetroKnowledge workshop builds on the skills and knowledge acquired in the Investment Appraisal Workshop to incorporate two important additional factors. The first is how to incorporate the change in risk when a company diversifies into new activities, using the Capital Asset Pricing Model.  The second is how to incorporate the effect of different financing structures, and their tax consequences, on the value and acceptability of the project. The workshop will comprise the following key elements:

  • Overview of the basic principles of Net Present Value and Weighted Average Cost of CapitaI (WACC) calculations, as used in normal investment appraisal
  • Explanation of the Modigliani and Miller theory, that ‘ WACC will be the same at all levels of gearing’ and why this should be modified to incorporate the benefit of tax savings
  • How to identify the risk level of a diversification project, incorporate its effect into an adjusted WACC, and calculate a risk-adjusted NPV
  • Identifying and calculating the present value of tax savings relating to term loans, instalment loans, and subsidized loans, and incorporating these into Adjusted Present Value (APV) evaluations
  • Separating the project cash flows into ‘risky’ and ‘risk-free’, assessing the value of ‘unused debt capacity’, and applying suitable discount rates to produce the APV

What are the Goals?

By the end of this PetroKnowledge workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand why it is important for us to consider, and accurately evaluate, all of the consequential effects of investing in new projects
  • Break down any new investment project into all of the significant elements that should be separately evaluated to produce an accurate summary of the value created – the Adjusted Present Value
  • Accurately measure the beta risk value of a diversification project from available market information, and make necessary ungearing and regarding calculations to produce a risk-adjusted WACC
  • Identify and evaluate the tax benefits of different forms of debt finance, and unused debt capacity, and incorporate these into an Adjusted Present Value calculation
  • Distinguish risky from risk-free operating cash flows, and apply suitable discount rates to each, in producing the Adjusted Present Value
