Required:
1a. Compute the cash payback period for each project.
Cash Payback Period | |
Plant Expansion | |
Retail Store Expansion |
1b. Compute the net present value. Use the present value of $1 table above. If required, round to the nearest dollar.
Plant Expansion | Retail Store Expansion | |
Present value of net cash flow total | $ | $ |
Less amount to be invested | $ | $ |
Net present value | $ | $ |
1a) Cash payback period :
Plant expansion | Retail store expansion | |||
Year 1 | 128000 | 128000 | 107000 | 107000 |
Year 2 | 105000 | 233000 | 126000 | 233000 |
Year 3 | 91000 | 324000 | 86000 | 319000 |
Year 4 | 82000 | 406000 | 60000 | 379000 |
Year 5 | 25000 | 431000 | 52000 | 431000 |
Cash payback period :
Plant expansion = 2 Years
Retail Store expansion = 2 years
1b) Net present value = Present value of cash inflow-Present value of cash outflow
Plant Expansion | Retail Store Expansion | |
Present value of net cash flow total | 309947 | 305098 |
Less amount to be invested | 233000 | 233000 |
