Abstract

The main contribution of this research is in the area of Real Option Theory, based on the Net Present Value (NPV) as a stochastic process. A model to value real options is suggested from constructing a continuous model for net present value named “Vasicek extended”. In this context, the Cox-Ingersoll-Ross (1985) model for interest rate is examined. In the model, external control variables (Zt) change the net cash flows. The modified NPV(Zt) gives a more accurate valuation of VPN(Zt,)+f, where f is a real option
