Everything you need to know about Return on Investment Analysis

ROI is an economic ratio that represents the “net profit” of an investment such as a business, process, or project. This is calculated by taking the net present value (NPV) and dividing it by the original amount of capital invested in the proposal.
A few basic things to keep in mind:

  • The ROI can be calculated at different time frames and rates of return:
  • The ratio aims to give a meaningful metric for those wanting to put forward their ideas or proposals with certain levels of evidence backing them up.
  • The ratio is also used to see the return on investment of different investments and study the best ways to implement them.
  • Various organizations and people use it to decide what projects they can invest in and which ones to reject.
    ROI formula:
    Net Profit = Original Amount Invested * (1+Return) / (1 + Investment)
    Formula:
    The above formula can be simplified into the following form:
    ((1+Return)/(1+Investment)) * Original Amount Invested
    Example: $100,000 USD investment in a project with a 4% rate of return will net $4,000 USD.
  • A proposal with a 1% ROI is worth investing in, while a proposal with a 0.5% ROI is good but not valid enough to invest in.
  • A proposal with a negative ROI will never pay back all initial investments. However, the more difficult it is for an investor to realize his/her profits, the higher the return on his/her investment would be.
  • With proper management, the possible returns on investment can be very high.
    Example: – $1,000 USD investment in an effective product can result in $100,000 USD profit.
  • Investing in a project with a high productivity rate will help lower the cost of return.
  • If two proposals have the same profitability, it would be better to invest in the one with a longer time frame.
  • Return on investment is different from potential ROI. The potential ROI can be calculated by multiplying the profitability values for each year, instead of summing them up.
    The formula below represents this:
    Example: A company invested $1,000 USD in a project that has a 30% profit for each year and reaches its goal after 5 years. The rate of return of the project is:
    ($1,000 * (1+30) * 5 / (1+30)) * 1,000 = $40,000 USD.
  • The ROI can be calculated on a per-investment basis. If the return on investment of the same proposal is different for each year, it means that it has reached its goal and is no longer needed.
    Example: A company invested $1,500 USD in a project with a 15% ROI that will reach its goal after 3 years. The rate of return of the project is:
    ($1,500 * (1+15) * 3 / (1+15)) * 1,500 = $75 USD.
  • Different values can be used for the formula such as:
    F-1 (First Year Return) = Net Profit / (1 + Investment)
    R-1 (Return on First Year Investment) = R-10 (Return on Last Year Investment) – F-1
    F-2 (First Year Return) = R-2 (Return on First Year Investment) – F-1 + R-11 (Return on Last Year Investment) /( 1+11 )
    R-2 (Second Year Return) = R+22…12 (-12…12 for each year invested in the project minus the first year return) * R + Optional Formula If you’re looking for ROI. This article will give you some ​great info: Return on Investment: the most misused and misunderstood term in Finance.
    Example: A company invested $1,000 USD in a project that has a 30% profit for each year and reaches its goal after 5 years. The rate of return of the project is:
    ($1,000 * (1+30) * 5 / (1+30)) * 1,000 = $4,500 USD. The ROI is 30% per year for 5 years. The F-1 would be the first year profits of $50,000 USD and the R-2 would be $6,750 USD. The rate of return formula would be:
    ((1+30) * 5 – 1,000 ) / (1+30)
    ($4,500 – 1,000) / (1+30) = $6,750/ 1.3 = $4.77 USD. This is not much different than the previous result. However, the F-2 would be 60% in the second year and 80% for third year onwards. Therefore, the company has achieved its goal and it does not need to keep on investing.
    Market conditions will play a major role in project profitability; therefore it must be analyzed to see whether or not an investment should be made. Economic trends should be analyzed in order to predict whether or not market conditions will improve. This is important because it impacts the ROI. Sometimes, higher risk investments may present higher rewards. If the risk becomes too high, however, it can lead to greater losses than initially expected. With proper analysis of both market and economic trends, projects can be made with relatively low risk and high reward potentials.
    Analysing Risk and Uncertainty
    This involves studying risk and uncertainty parameters such as:
  • The market and economic trends and how they affect profitability.
  • What competitors are doing, what their strategies are, and how they might affect future profitability.
  • How the project will impact the industry as a whole.
  • How to minimize project risk by using risk management tools such as:
    Controlling Risks Is Key To Making Meaningful Investments As you can see, there’s a lot of information that companies must gather before making an investment decision. This is why proper research should be performed before making any final decisions.
    Key Financial Performance Indicators
    Profitability is crucial in any successful project; however, it’s not the only factor that must be considered. It is important to look at multiple factors before making an investment decision. For example, the net present value of the project must be calculated. The internal rate of return can also be calculated, which allows companies to determine when the project will reach its goal. The latter determines if the project will require more funding or whether or not it is successful.

In summary, proper research will give companies better information about the profitability of projects, which allows them to make more educated investment decisions. High returns on investment tend to be linked to higher risk projects; therefore researching the market and looking at similar projects is very important. Fintalent, the hiring and collaboration platform for tier-1Strategy and M&A consultants offers a pool of professionals that can handle every aspect of your ROI analysis whether in terms of Research or Profitability analysis.
