In the last step of his cash flow worksheet, Dave sums the expenses and revenues for each year and all 5 scenarios. He charts these out in graphs with a horizontal line for minimum acceptable return. ESP has access to public project funding at a 6% interest rate, to which he adds 3% for additional risk factors, for a 9% discount rate. Finally, he discounts the net returns per year under all scenarios at 9%, and calculates an NPV for each revenue path. This gives him 5 project values at 5 different revenue assumptions based on his variable markup. At least 3 of these NPVs must exceed the companys 12% hurdle rate in his cash flow worksheet for the bid to viable.
For entrepreneurs just starting out, it can be difficult to know what monthly expenses will be. To get a general idea,you can view sample business plans online for your field of business. Business plans will include a start-up and projected operating budget, and there are some posted at the Palo Alto Software website.
On the revenue side, Daves past experience with the City of Metropolis and similar projects indicate payment will come in 3 large chunks, then a revenue share of the bridge tolls for 10 years. The 3 large payments are what ESP is bidding on, and they need to cover the costs of each phase. Dave also adds a variable profit margin above costs. Using this profit margin as a variable, his goal is to estimate the lowest margin ESP can charge above its costs to ensure NPV exceeds the companys standard project bidding hurdle rate of 12%.
