Data Analysis of CAPEX Profitability Across the Full Life Cycle
The problem of investment projects efficiency assessment and commensurability of long-term effectiveness for the full payback period with increasing macroeconomic uncertainty remains relevant. The criteria used to make investment decisions at the planning stage do not always allow further financial results comparison for post-completion audit. In long term monitoring of capital expenditure profitability, we suggest to measure the absolute effect of project for the accounting date by the net interim value of accumulated cash flow. Based on this approach we also suggest using the average annual profitability index as a metric to assess the rate of investment profitability. And aggregated assessment of return on investment of the whole investment program can be made as weighted average profitability index.
