Companies typically evaluate the returns expected from new investments against a “hurdle rate” or benchmark. Investments that earn returns in excess of the hurdle rate are expected to create value for shareholders and vice versa. Most companies set hurdle rates based on an analysis of their weighted average cost of capital (WACC). When considering investments outside their home country, they normally increase the hurdle rate to account for the additional perceived risks and volatilities associated with the opportunities.
