## Why do companies use Adjusted Present Value?

A company can finance a project/investment using only shareholder equity without leverage/borrowed, cash flows. This provides unleveraged cash flow from shareholder equity

The company then repays associated debts using the unleveraged cash flow from shareholder equity.

This benefits the company by leveraging tax deductions on the interest part of these payments.

This helps to increase the project/investment bottom line which in turn puts the company at an advantage as far as the project/investment profitability.

The company can analyse the project/investment profitability using the adjusted present value (APV) including adjusting tax benefits from interest obligations on associated outstanding debts and subsequently comparing these against the return on alternate cash flows for funding the project/investment.
