How to Calculate Profitability Index
To use the profitability index formula, let's try an example. If a business requires an initial investment of $100,000 with a discount rate of 10% and produces the following cash flow
Year 1: $10,000
Year 2: $20,000
Year 3: $30,000
Year 4: $40,000
Here's how to calculate the profitability index
PI = [ 10000/(1.1)^1 + 20000/(1.1)^2 + 30000/(1.1)^3 + 40000/(1.1)^4] / 100000 = 0.0755
