The overall course objective is to develop the ability of course participants to handle the concepts of time value of money and the application of those concepts to after-tax analyses of virtually any investment situation. This includes investment in the mineral, petroleum and non-mineral sectors and can be modified slightly for specific industries. 

This course addresses the economic analysis of income and service producing investments based on discounted cash flow analysis procedures. Covering economic analysis techniques used to optimize the development and operation of mining, petroleum, non- natural resource and processing operations, the 4-day course addresses both before-tax and after- tax analysis considerations while the 3-day course focuses on before-tax considerations. This course demonstrates the evaluation techniques presented using a variety of applications for people with technical and non-technical backgrounds, with or without previous evaluation experience.

The course is made of 95% practical with problems and real world case studies to help participant understand and develop correct methods to properly evaluate investment and will solidify the process of evaluating investment.

Before–tax considerations

·         Achieve familiarity with present, future and annual value calculations and the related terminology and proper application of these concepts.

·         Achieve familiarity with the calculation of Rate of Return, (ROR), Growth Rate of Return, (GROR), Net Present Value, (NPV), and Ratio Analyses for “income-producing” and “service-producing” investments.

·         Understand the proper application of rate of return, net present value and ratios when evaluating mutually exclusive and non-mutually exclusive alternatives.

·         Consider the dual rate of return analysis problem common to acceleration scenarios and reclamation or decommissioning costs and how to make a valid economic analysis of investments involving cost-income-cost in the sequence of cash flows.

·         Introduction to inflation and its relationship to the proper use of escalated and constant dollars in economic analyses.

·         Continue discussion on escalated, constant and today’s dollar evaluations.

·         Become familiar with the basics of “sensitivity” analysis as well as “risk adjusted” evaluations. The later concept addresses the basic elements of expected value and its incorporation into discounted cash flow calculations.

After-tax considerations

·         Achieve understanding of expensing vs capitalizing costs and related depreciation, depletion and amortization tax deductions for determination of project taxable income for state and federal income tax purposes.

·         Continued discussion of tax issues such as the distinction between tax credits vs deductions will lead to familiarity with making after-tax discounted cash flow analyses of various investment scenarios. An investor’s financial ability to utilize deductions from expenditures and its impact on cash flow will be discussed.

·         Review of the elements of working capital and its impact on cash flow and project economics.

·         Development of the ability to make after-tax break-even calculations in escalated or constant dollars and an understanding of the relationship between operating cost savings and before-tax revenue will be presented.

·         Develop an ability to relate after-tax NPV results to the before-tax value of projects and investments.

·         Understand the application of after-tax cost analysis and incremental DCFROR, NPV and Ratio analysis for evaluating replacement alternatives and for leasing versus purchase decisions as well.

·         Discussion of the use of secondary evaluations such as leasing and leverage in economic models.
