For capital budgeting purposes, a real option must be analyzed multiple times. First, the company must decide if the real option should be purchased. The investment in the real option makes economic sense when the value of the option, as determined by an options valuation algo- rithm, exceeds the cost of the option. An option pricing approach to corporate dividends and the capital investment financing decision. Real Options in Capital Budgeting. Pricing the Option to Delay and the Option to Abandon a Project Real options represent a new approach in capital budgeting, using the theory of pricing financial options for investments in real assets. In this paper, we emphasize the characteristics investment cost.

The decision processes surrounding investments in innovative information technology IT platforms are complicated by uncertainty about expected payoffs and irreversibilities in the costs of implementation. When uncertainty and irreversibility are high, concepts from real options should be used to properly structure the evaluation and management of investment opportunities, and thereby capture the value of managerial flexibility. However, while innovation researchers have posited that option value can influence the motivations of early adopters, and options researchers have identified emerging IT as a promising area for application of options valuation techniques, there has yet to be a systematic theoretical integration of work on IT innovation and real options. This paper seeks to fill this gap by developing a model of the determinants of option value associated with investments in innovative IT platforms. In so doing, the model addresses a central question in the innovation field: When should a firm take a lead role in innovation with emerging technologies? The analysis begins with an explanation of real options analysis and how it differs from conventional approaches for evaluating new technologies.

Copeland CRA International, MIT This article attempts to answer some of the most common questions about how to apply the theory of real options to practice. Its primary focus is on how to start with irregular expected cash flows of the underlying risky asset that do not follow any regular stochastic process and end up with a legitimate real options analysis. It is organized as follows.
Show all documents Real Options Literature Review After 30 years of discussion and research, the academic community has established a complete theoretical system of real options and provided an excellent framework for the use of real options theory in the investment appraisal of high-tech projects. An option is an entitlement without any obligation and it has been used to describe a variety of management decisions in business investment.

Real options valuation , also often termed real options analysis ,  ROV or ROA applies option valuation techniques to capital budgeting decisions. Real options are generally distinguished from conventional financial options in that they are not typically traded as securities, and do not usually involve decisions on an underlying asset that is traded as a financial security.
This article traces the development of real options reasoning ROR and details how problems in assessing the value of real options have made ROR difficult to implement. The article then describes how in practice, instead of focusing on explicit valuation, organizations use analogous reasoning to develop, select, and implement options that enable strategic flexibility and so enhance value. An illustrative case demonstrates how financial options can help this process by buffering core operations from changing market environments. The same illustration also shows that ROR fails to simultaneously create future choices while limiting costs.
