Negative Pressure Ventilation - A form of ventilation in which inspiratory flow is produced by expanding the lungs by applying a negative pressure (relative to ambient) to the external surface of the chest wall. This can be done by placing a cuirass around the ribcage and abdomen and evacuating it with the negative pressure ventilator.

The value of cash flows discounted using the time and risk value of money. It is the real value of a receipt or payment in future, deflated because of interest. It is a method of evaluating investment proposals.

Net Present Value. The present value of future cash returns, discounted at the appropriate market interest rate, minus the present value of the cost of the investment.

Net Present Value. NPV of an investment is the sum of all expected future cash flows from the investment, discounted at spot interest rate or riskless rate, less the cost of investment; one of the best tools to evaluate investment decisions. Projects with a positive NPV can be approved while projects with a negative NPV will not be recommended.

Net present value. The discounted value of all future cash flows minus the initial cash outlay. A net present value greater than or equal to zero is acceptable.

Net present value. The future stream of benefits and costs converted into equivalent values today. This is done by assigning monetary values to benefits and costs, discounting future benefits and costs using an appropriate discount rate, and subtracting the sum total of discounted costs from the sum total of discounted benefits.

Net Present Value. This is a measure of the overall value of a stream of payments over time. The NPV represents the amount that would need to be invested at a commercial interest rate at the beginning of the payment period, such that, with accumulated interest, it would be adequate to meet all payments as they became due.

NET PRESENT VALUE. is a method used in evaluating investments, whereby the net present value of all cash outflows (such as the cost of the investment) and cash inflows (returns) is calculated using a given discount rate, usually REQUIRED RATE OF RETURN. An investment is acceptable if the NPV is positive. In capital budgeting, the discount rate used is called the HURDLE RATE and is usually equal to the INCREMENTAL COST OF CAPITAL.

Net Present Value. The discounted value of all of a property's future cash flows (including the reversion) less the initial cash investment.

NET PRESENT VALUE. a technique for assessing the worth of future payments by looking at the present value of those future cashflows discounted at todayâ€(tm)s cost of capital.

The periodic Net Cashflows are each discounted by the Discount Rate to a present date and the appropriate cash outflows/investment for construction or acquisition are deducted from the total.

Net present value. a stand's present worth before harvesting once costs associated with its establishment and tending have been subtracted.

Net Present Value. Method, in which the discount rate is chosen and the answer is a sum of money.

Net Present Value. The value obtained by discounting all cash outflows and inflows attributable to a capital investment project by a chosen percentage.

Net Present Value. The difference between the present value of capital outlays and the present value of all future cash flow benefits. If positive, it reflects a return on capital; if negative, not all capital has been returned. It is expressed as a dollar amount.

Abbreviation for Net Present Value.

Net Present Value. The sum of the projected cash flows from an investment, with each item discounted from the relevant date of calculation.

Abbrev. For Net Present Value.

Net Present Value. The difference between the present value of the expected cash inflows from an investment and the amount of the investment outlay; an investment is acceptable if the net present value is equal to or greater than zero.

Net Present Value. Means of evaluating which products offer the lowest cost, taking into account the time value of money for the life of the policy.

Net present value. Discounted value of future cash flow.

Net present value. The discounted present value of all revenues associated with an investment minus the discounted present value of all costs. Investments with an NPV equal to or greater than 0 are economically feasible at the investor's discount rate. Also see “Benefit/cost ratio,” “Equal annual equivalent,” and “Internal rate of return.

Net Present Value. The present value of the net cash flows that will result from an investment, minus the amount of the original investment. See Interest rate formulae

Net present value (NPV) is the difference between the present values of the future revenues and future costs of a project.

Net Present Value:. NPV tell us how much the property is worth now to the investor. IRR tells us the rate of return if the property is bought at a certain price.

Net Present Value. The value today of cashflows due in the future. Calculated using predicted interest rates and a margin to reflect the risk of non payment.

Net Present Value (6)

Net Present Value. A measure of a project's future value in current dollars. Future income and expenses are summed and then discounted using a required rate of return to adjust for the time value of money. Net present value is, theoretically, the best method for evaluating projects.

Net present value. The present value of the expected future cash flows minus the cost.

See: Net present value.

Net present value. A firm or project's net contribution to wealth. This is the present value of current and future income streams, minus initial investment.

Net Present Value. The value of a stream of cash over time, discounted to a selected "hurdle" rate of interest.

The aggregate Present Value of the projected cash flows less the opening amount. The capital amount equivalent to the sum of the periodic net cash flows discounted by the required rate of return. That is, the capital sum a hypothetical purchaser would be willing to pay for an expected net income stream that would provide that purchaser his/her required return. The Net Present Value is calculated as the sum of the Present Values of all periodic cash flows excluding any ‘opening value' or ‘initial purchase price', using a constant discount rate to find the Present Value of each periodic cash flow.

Net Present Value. The calculation includes hardware costs, software costs, professional service fees, internal staff costs, post-implementation costs and quantified benefits.

Net Present Value. Present value of cash inflows minus the present value of cash outflows. Represents the economic profit adjusted for risk and timing.

Net present value. The algebraic sum of the discounted values of cashflows each year during the project (Winston, 1995). The general rule is to adopt all projects with NPVs greater than zero or choosing (between two mutually exclusive alternatives) projects that have the highest NPVs (Brown, 1994).

Net Present Value. The present value of a flow of income discounted by a factor (such as inflation) over the period of an investment.

Net Present Value. Method used in comparably evaluating investments in very dissimilar projects by discounting the current and projected future cash inflows and outflows back to the present value based on the discount rate, or cost of capital, of the firm.

Net present value. Net present value usually is employed to evaluate the relative merits of two or more investment alternatives. It is calculated as the sum of the total present value of incremental future cash flows plus the present value of estimated proceeds from sale. Whenever the net present value is greater than zero, an investment opportunity generally is considered to have merit.

Net Present Value. Refers to a method used in evaluating investments in which the net present value (NPV) of all cash outflows and cash inflows is calculated using a given discount rate, usually the required rate of return. If the NPV is positive, the investment is acceptable. In capital budgeting, the discount rate used is known as the hurdle rate and this rate is usually equal to the incremental cost of capital.

Net Present Value. The current value of a particular investment's net cash flow, less the initial investment. A positive result indicates the investment should be made, otherwise, it should not be made.

Net Present Value. Method of determining whether expected performance of a proposed investment promises to be adequate. The difference between the present value of cash inflows generated by real estate and the amount of the initial investment. The present value of future cash flows is computed using the cost of capital (minimum desired rate of return, or hurdle rate) as the discount rate.
