(b) Abandonment Option:

As we have already studied in Capital Budgeting (at IPCC level) that once funds have been committed in any Capital Budgeting project it can not be recorded without incurring a heavy loss. However, in some cases due to change in economic conditions the firm may like to opt for adordoming the project without incurring further huge loses.

The option to abandon the project is similar to a put option where option to a abandon the project shall be exercised if value derived from project’s assets is more than PV of continuing project for one or more period.

(c) Timing Option: In traditional capital budgeting the project can either be accepted or rejected, implying that this will be undertaken or forever not. However, in real life situation a sometime a third choice also arises i.e. delay the decision until later, in i.e. option when to invest. Possible reasons for this delay may be availability of better information or ideas later on.
