    Companies are commonly faced with a situation where, in order to survive or stay in the industry and remain competitive, must come up with well calculated financing decisions. These decisions are critical and do not only directly involve one functional area of business but involve all. To buy or not to buy machinery or equipment now or few years later would mean a lot to production, human resources, and marketing. To pursue or not to pursue an investment endeavor which is putting up a new marketing territory will mean a lot to the company's survival and competitiveness. To lease or just to put up a building for the company's manufacturing plant will mean a lot to the company's ability to cope with existing financial obligations, its ability to take advantage of a business opportunity, ability to provide attractive compensation package to its employees, and ability to produce within the expectations of the end users.

    The above cited instances are only a few among the situations faced by a firm that involve capital budgeting decisions or decisions that require comparing the expected cash inflows with the cash outflows, with due consideration of cost of capital, expectation of shareholders, economic life of the intended project, the image of the company in the community, and the overall performance of the business.
    These indicate that making correct decisions are crucial to the overall value of the firm. However, it is important to note that correct decisions are only made possible through correct and adequate information that formed the basis of the decision. This correct and adequate information are products of appropriate capital budgeting or valuation tools.

    2. Which tool would provide more adequate and ...
