Strong trends in local real estate market has encouraged market participants to engage in larger and more sophisticated projects. In so doing, the need to produce detailed project-specific cash flows and feasibility studies has become more frequent, reinforced also by the increased-level of scrutiny and governance standards imposed by both internal and external stakeholders in relation to such projects.
In this regard, discounted cash flow analysis and related techniques can help management evaluate the feasibility and profitability of projects and assist in internal capital budgeting processes. These techniques are also pertinent to financial institutions, and other providers of finance, in assessing the feasibility and reasonableness of financial projections during the project selection and credit approval stages. To this end, this session will be primarily centred on the analysis of the project-specific cash flows with an emphasis on the project appraisal and valuation.
Objectives of this session
The objective of the course is to run through the process for conducting and evaluating a discounted cash flow analysis and other capital budgeting techniques, and highlight common shortfalls that can jeopardise the reliability of the findings. The course will also cover related topics such as evaluating the reasonableness of project forecasts, estimating an appropriate discount rate to use for project appraisal and techniques for dealing with risk and uncertainty. The course will conclude by linking the above capital budgeting techniques to the valuation of development projects and provide an overview of techniques used for the valuation of developable sites and on-going development projects.
Topics on the agenda
This session will cover the following topics:
- Overview of capital budgeting techniques and discounted cash flow analysis
- Assessing the completeness and reasonableness of projections
- Analysing key financial ratios implied by the projections
- Identifying and analysing the project-specific risks
- Understanding the timeline of the projects and its relationship with project risk
- Estimating a reasonable discount rate for the project
- The residual valuation method and the valuation of development projects
- Overview of project-specific real options and their impact on the value of a development project
This session will be useful to key management personnel involved in the appraisal or valuation of development projects, including financiers or persons who are otherwise involved in capital budgeting.
