Assignment 1: Discussion—Value of Money
Business decisions are based on the time value of money. Bonds, stocks, loans, and other business investments are valued by determining the present value of an expected cash flow, which is also called discounting the cash flow. The time value of money finds considerable application in the decision-making processes of a business.
In this assignment, you will apply the basic principles of the time value of money to business decisions.
You are the chief financial officer of a firm. The firm has an expected liability (cash outflow) of $2 million in ten years at a discount rate of 5%.
Calculate the amount the firm would need on the present date as savings to cover the expected liability.
Calculate the amount the firm would need to set aside at the end of each year for the next ten years to cover the expected liability.
Using the Argosy University online library resources, identify an article that demonstrates the application of time value of money principles to a business decision.
Explain the specific business decision that management made after computing this value. Analyze how management used the concept of the time value of money principles to make this decision.
Analyze factors other than the time value of money that management considered or should have considered in reaching the business decision.
