Analysis Diamond Chemicals
This project belongs in the engineering-efficiency category; therefore, it has to fit at least 3 of 4 performance hurdles, which are 1. Impact on EPS; 2.Payback; 3.Discounted cash flow and 4. Internal rate of return.
In this article, some of those involved explained and described their opinions; however, professional knowledge may have been lacking. Therefore, we will expound and clarify below.

Management Analysis

If adding the budget for transportation cost is ignored, and even if the Merseyside project can add total throughput, the transportation division still cannot transfer the spared throughput due to the throughput is over the ability of the original transferring utility. Therefore, there will be a charge of ₤2millions which will be added to the project.

Impact- Cannibalization& Ramp up period

Tewitt's suggestion of including the EPC product in the Merseyside renovations presents as an ethical issue, although we think developing EPC is an excellent idea for DC due to the company's competitive strength. But the description from Tewitt shows that he is placing his own self-interest above all other stakeholders and "above moral duties that override self-interest" (Van De Ven & Jeurissen, 2005).

Inflation and Capital Budgeting
In our opinion, the concerns of Andrew Gowan- Treasury analyst- regarding interest rate calculations used in Merseyside project evaluations are valuable. Due to Greystock's calculation mix nominal and real rates, he ignores the Fisher Effect. The definition of Fisher effect is the Fisher effect is in a model where inflation is expected to be steady, the nominal interest rate changes one-for-one with the inflation rate. (Wikipedia, Fisher equation *4) DC takes the 10% hurdle rate as an assumption; there is no other description in the case of how the rate was calculated or set, which is necessary for accurately valuating capital...
