Utility Of Net Present Value (Npv) For Firms In Today’S Economy


  • Iuliana Militaru

    (Romanian-American University, Bucharest)


In last forty or so years firms made use, in their pursuit of building their investment decisions around a quantitative approach, of such an model – and respective index – as internal rate of return (IRR), and, of course, of its main derivative products of basic IRR model, such as financial IRR (FIRR), economic IRR(EIRR), sqq. This being said, quantifying a rate of returnfor any investment project is, at least sometimes, not enough; in such cases, there is still a pressing need to compute net present value of investment projects, and not only for the sake of investment strategy, but in the benefit of general development strategy of a firm.
