HURDLE RATE is a term used in the budgeting of capital expenditures meaning the REQUIRED RATE OF RETURN in a DISCOUNTED CASH FLOW analysis. If the expected rate of return on an investment is below the hurdle rate, the project is not undertaken. The hurdle rate should be equal to the INCREMENTAL COST OF CAPITAL.
BIFURCATED generally means to be divided into or made up of two parts. In accounting an example would be: to split the cash account in the accounting records into two accounts, cash - principal and cash - income.
UNABSORBED COSTS occurs when the cost structure does not fully reflect all variable and/or fixed costs.
