Internal Rate of Return Method for a Service Company

The Riverton Company, announced a \$620,761 million expansion of lodging properties, ski lifts, and terrain in Park City, Utah. Assume that this investment is estimated to produce \$151,000 million in equal annual cash flows for each of the first six years of the project life.

a. Determine the expected internal rate of return of this project for six years, using the present value of an annuity of \$1 table above.
%

b. Identify the uncertainties that could reduce the internal rate of return of this project?
All of these

 1) IRR = 12% IRR: IRR stands for Internal rate of return, it is a rate where Net present value is zero. Steps: To Calculate IRR, we took two random discount rate where at one present value is in negative while in other in positive. Here we took 20% and 28%. Year Cash Flows PVF PVF Present Value at Present Value at 10% 15% 10% 15% 0 (620,761) 1.00000 1.000 (620,761) (620,761) 1 151,000 0.90909 0.86957 137,273 131,304 2 151,000 0.82645 0.75614 124,793 114,178 3 151,000 0.75131 0.65752 113,449 99,285 4 151,000 0.68301 0.57175 103,135 86,335 5 151,000 0.62092 0.49718 93,759 75,074 6 151,000 0.56447 0.43233 85,236 65,281 Net Present Value 36,883 (49,304) IRR = Lower Discount Rate + [Lower Rate NPV / (Lower Rate NPV - Higher Rate NPV)] * (Higher Discount Rate - Lower Discount Rate) By putting above values in the give formula we get IRR = 12% 2) Following are the uncertainicities a) Fluctuation is cash flow b) Change in market rate of interest during the project c) Fluctuations in amount of initial investment
