NPV

Net Present Value

A measure of discounted cash inflow to present cash outflow to determine whether a prospective investment will be profitable. For example, if a dentist wishes to purchase a new dental practice, he may calculate the net present value over a number of years to see if he will recover his investment in a reasonable period of time. If the ask price for the dental practice is $500,000, this is the present cash outflow used in the calculation. If the discounted cash inflow over, say, two years, is greater than or equal to $500,000, then the investment will likely be profitable. See also: Present value.

In the present study, we were interested to check the potential of commercial formulations of NPV and Bt alone and in different combinations against S.
Thus, sensitivity was 98.0% (95% Cl, 92.8%-99.8%) with an NPV of 99.8% (95% Cl, 99.1%-100%).
This final characteristic means that the net present value (NPV) becomes a more important indicator than the internal rate of return (IRR) in career choice, since NPV is the most relevant criterion in case only one investment can be made (Hirshleifer, 1970).
However, despite the higher prevalence and incidence of elevated D-Dimer in cancer patients, it was observed by Ten et al, (21) that the NPV of D-Dimer test in cancer patients was as high as non-cancer patients in their cohort of 1 739 patients (217 had cancer).
In addition, we incorporate a 5% discount rate when estimating the NPVs of tax consequences.
Among these culture positive cases, Typhidot M test had the highest sensitivity, specificity, PPV and NPV of 90% (95% CI = 74.4-96.5), 100% (95% CI = 90.1-100), 100% (95% CI = 87.5-100), and 92.1% (95% CI = 79.2-97.3) respectively.
The sensitivity, specificity, PPV, and NPV of each incident diabetes prediction method were calculated using point prevalence of diabetes at 1, 2, and 3 years among those individuals who had no diabetes at baseline.
In scenario 1 (base case without policy regime uncertainty), the platform as well as the wind power plant investment have positive NPVs and are immediately executed.
zhejiangensis larvae was isolated, which showed the same morphological characteristics as other NPVs. Interestingly, one or two circular and elongated holes were observed on the surface of NezhNPV (Fig.
Sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive values (PPVs) and negative predictive values (NPVs) were calculated for these parameters, taking these cutoff points into account.
The project team reported regularly to top management, presenting quantitative criteria (NPVs, ROIs, and quantified performance data) underlain by assumptions specified through scenario techniques.
