For the quantitative analysis, we have calculated the net cash flow with the investment in African and Orchid fertilizers. We have calculated its return on investment, and payback periods. We also have projected the firm’s income statement for the year 2006 with the investment and without the investment to analyze whether it is workable to invest in the fertilizers or not.
Note: Refer to Exhibit 1 to 3 for calculations
- First alternative is that this organization is launched “Two New Fertilizer Products” and invested all budget in these two products.
- Second alternative is that this organization is not launched and invests these “Two New Fertilizer Products”.
We have decided the decision criteria to be based on both qualitative and quantitative analysis. From qualitative analysis over criteria would be based on the competitive advantage and corporate image. Whereas we would base the decision on the net cash flow and cost out of the quantitative analysis. We have chosen these criteria because that way the pros and cons related to the investment would be clearer and based on both the financial and non-financial analysis. The decision would not be only limited to financial analysis. For the assessment of alternatives based on qualitative and qualitative analysis, we have used the ranking system from 0 to 1. The alternative coming up to the expected criteria would be ranked one and otherwise zero.

If a corporate is selected first alternative, so the recovery of “Net Loss” of the corporate will be easy and quick as compared with the second alternative income statement.
Action and Implementation Plan
As per the analysis, the company should definitely invest in both the products. In order to do so, the company could use various financing strategies, like in case of more capital requirements for the investment. The company is supposed to take long-term debt that must be eventually paid from the potential returns out of the investment. In case of stable saving, the company could partially finance the investments to launch new products and if the company has sufficient funds, the company is suggested to finance the investment completely equity based. For long-term growth and corporate sustainability, the company must look for potential investments with low risks and maximum returns….
