Organizations often require an estimate of Return on Investment (ROI), Net Present Value (NPV), and Payback Period for projects that require a capital investment. This page provides an estimate of these numbers based on your input.
Return on Investment is a performance measure used to evaluate the efficiency of an investment. ROI measures the amount of return on an investment relative to the investment's cost. To calculate ROI, the benefit (or return) of an investment is divided by the cost of the investment, and the result is expressed as a percentage or a ratio.
Net Present Value (NPV) is the difference between the present value of cash inflows and the present value of cash outflows. NPV is used in capital budgeting to analyze the profitability of a projected investment or project.
The payback period is the length of time required to recover the cost of an investment. The payback period of a given investment or project is an important determinant of whether to undertake the position or project, as longer payback periods are typically not desirable for investment positions.
