This paper examines the real options valuation of a potential onshore wind farm project in Serbia. “An analytic valuation formula for unprotected American call options on stocks with known dividends.”, Sims, Christopher A. In empirical study, we evaluate the initial public offering (IPO) price of a new DRAM chipmaker in Taiwan. We estimate the dividend-like yield with two methods, and find the yield to be negative. This paper contributes to the existing literature in at least two ways: it presents in-depth analysis of the real option application to the RES-E project and provides decision-makers with sophisticated tool for improving strategic thinking, capital budgeting and decision-making processes. 0000001078 00000 n 0000002161 00000 n (1978). “Valuing managerial flexibility.”, Zaremba, S.K.

Monte Carlo method had the slowest execution speed. <<465A22B30A48F1409107ED394B5E1623>]>> In addition, most renewable energy electricity generation (RES-E) projects are characterized by considerable uncertainty and sequential decision-making. The negative dividend-like yield results from the negative correlation between the newly constructed DRAM foundry and its twin security, implying the diversification advantage of a new generation of DRAM foundry with a relative low cost of investment opportunity. All the aforementioned options and paths are illustrated in the multiphased sequential compound (nested) mutually exclusive path dependent real options strategy decision tree for the wind farm project in Fig. 0000004162 00000 n It is also found that the value of real option is in reverse relation with interest rate and not necessarily positively correlated with volatility, a result different from that anticipated under the financial option theory.
