This is a Spanish translation of the March 22, 2016, version of UVA-F-1563. Students are in the role of Target Corporation's CFO considering the pros and cons of a variety of capital-investment proposals. The CFO is preparing his thoughts prior to a meeting of the Capital Expenditure Committee (CEC) with other Target senior executives to consider the merits of 10 capital-project requests (CPR), 5 of which are expected to require extra attention. Each CPR has a "dashboard" that summarizes the critical inputs used to compute the net present value (NPV) and internal rate of return (IRR) as well as data about the type of investment (new store or remodel), market size, location, customer-demographic information, as well as the sensitivity of NPV and IRR to changes in various inputs. Students must evaluate the CPRs by balancing corporate-growth objectives with the economics of the projects.
