Definitions for "net investment"
The level of investment minus equipment depreciation.
( investissement net). The increase in productive capital goods, calculated by deducting from total or gross investment the depreciation in value (and, presumably, productive capacity) of existing capital goods. As an economy becomes more capital-intensive, more of its production has to be devoted to replacing depreciated capital to maintain the standard of living. If a firm buys $1 million worth of new machinery in a year, but depreciates $200,000 of old equipment that is losing its value, then its net investment is $800,000.
The cost of starting a project or the net cash outflows required to ready a project for its basic function or operation; sometimes called the initial investment or initial outlay.
