Net Present Value (NPV)

In corporate finance, the current value (the value of cash to be received in the future expressed in today's dollars) of an investment in excess of the initial amount invested. When an investment has a negative NPV, it should not be accepted. When an investment or project has a positive NPV, it should be pursued.
