This means that the cash flow will be equivalent to the outflow value of cash. This is much more simple and less complex if there is the use of NPV or the PI which is for a simple accepting of rejection decision. The statement of NPV being greater than 0 is same as the statement that PI is greater than one. As for the ones like those of IRR the PI may give a right answer which is common in a situation of having an extreme negative cash flow value followed on consecutively by positive value of cash flows.
