Question

The company has a project with a 5-year life that requires an initial investment of $210,000, and is expected to yield annual cash flows of $59,500. What is the net present value of the project if the required rate of return is set at 8%?

Net Present Value= ($59,500*???)-210,000

What NPV does the previous calculation
yield? $*Note*: Round your answer to the nearest
whole dollar.

Answer #1

The problem is related to the calculation of Net Present Value of a project.

Present Value of Annual Cash Flows for 5 years = Annual Cash Flow $59,500 * Present Value annuity factory at 8% for 5 years

= $59,500 * 3.993

= $237,583.50

Initial Investment i.e. Cash Outflow = $210,000

Net Present Value = $237,583.50 - $210,000

**= $27,583.50 or $27,584**

What NPV does the previous calculation Yield =
**$27,584**

Present Value of an annuity table is used for above calculation:

A potential investment requires an initial cash outlay of
$675,000 and has a useful life of 10 years. Annual cash receipts
from the investment are expected to be $185,000. The salvage value
of the investment is expected to be $60,000. The company’s tax rate
is 30%. The entire initial cash outlay (without any reduction for
salvage value) will be depreciated over 10 years. Assume a discount
rate of 21%.

(1)A firm undertakes a five-year project that requires an
initial capital investment of $100,000. The project is then
expected to provide cash flow of $12,000 per year for the first two
years, $50,000 in the third and fourth years, and $10,000 in the
fifth year. The project has an end-of-life salvage value of $5,000.
If the discount rate applied to these cash flows is 9.50 percent,
to the nearest dollar, the net present value of this project is

Present Value Index
When funds for capital investments are limited, projects can be
ranked using a present value index. A project with a negative net
present value will have a present value index below 1.0. Also, it
is important to note that a project with the largest net present
value may, in fact, return a lower present value per dollar
invested.
Let's look at an example of how to determine the present value
index.
