Example text

From a psychological vantage (business risks being what they are), investors, who in the last analysis establish the comparable multiples, are building in a bit of a cushion for uncertainty. CHAPTER 3 Factoring in the Risk very industrial R&D project plan envisions a reward. In financial terms, the payoff can be represented by the project’s net present value in the year it is commercialized. But that payoff is further and invariably diminished by what might be called “The Three Horsemen of the R&D Apocalypse,” (1) the time value of money; (2) the risk of technical failure; and (3) the cost of the R&D program itself.

Typically, the former two give a significantly lower figure than the latter three, which in turn should produce results that are fairly close to one another.

Second Comment: The difference is probably significant, and either or both of two factors may explain it. Mathematically, what accounts for the difference is the high long-term growth rate of 5 percent assumed in the model.
