Question

A project has an initial cost of $384,200 and cash inflows of $187,636, $93,496, $103,802, and $92,556, for Years 1 to 4, respectively. What is the NPV of this project if the discount rate is infinite? (Please show work. I am confused by the infinite discount rate.)

A) $158,415

B) -$93,290

C) -$384,200

D) $93,290

E) $384,200

Answer #1

When the discount rate is infinite, the future cash flows do not have any value. The value of future cash flows becomes zero even if the cash flows are very large. Technically also, one divided by infinity is equal to zero.

So the Net Present Value of the above given cash flow is only equal to the initial cost.

Note: NPV is equal to summation of the discounted values of future cash flows, ie, future cash cash flows at time t/ (1+discount rate)^t.

Here, NPV = -384,200 +0+0+0+0

So NPV = -384,200

A project has an initial cash outflow of $26,800 and produces
cash inflows of $8,304, $12,516, $18,240, and $10,390 for years 1
through 4, respectively. What is the NPV at a discount rate of 12
percent?
$8,312.46
b.
$10,177.87
c.
$12,029.09
d.
-$1,208.19
e.
$7,675.95

A project has an initial cash outflow of $42,600 and produces
cash inflows of $17,680, $19,920, and $15,670 for Years 1 through
3, respectively. What is the NPV at a discount rate of 12 percent?
Select one:
A. $186.95
B. –$108.19
C. $219.41
D. $229.09
E. $311.16

A project has an initial cost of $6,000 and has annual
cash inflows of $1,725, $2,165, $2,281, and $2,624 in years 1-4.
Assuming a 15% discount rate, find the following for the
project.
1.NPV
2.IRR
3.Profitability index
Should we accept the project based on each of these
rules?

A.
A project has an initial cost of $57,200 and is expected to
produce cash inflows of $19,800, $27,900, and $45,200 over the next
3 years, respectively. What is the project’s internal rate of
return?
18.92 percent
26.25 percent
16.86 percent
24.63 percent
B.
You are comparing two mutually exclusive projects. Both projects
have an initial cost of $40,000 . Project A has cash inflows of
$21,000 , $18,000 , and $15,000 over the next 3 years,
respectively. Project B...

A project has an initial cost of $6,000 and has annual cash
inflows of $1,725, $2,165, $2,281, and $2,624 in years 1-4.
Assuming a 15% discount rate, find the following for the
project.
1. Payback period
2. Discounted payback period

Two projects have the same initial cost. Project A has estimated
cash flows of $1,000, $2,000, $3,000, $4,000 at the end of years 1
to 4 respectively. Project B has estimated cash flows of $4,000,
$3,000, $2,000, $1,000 at the end of years 1 to 4 respectively.
Which project will have the greater NPV assuming a positive
discount rate? Select one: a. The NPV will be the same for both
Project A and Project B b. Project B c. Project...

An investment project has the following cash flows: initial cost
= $1,000,000; cash inflows = $200,000 per year for eight years. If
the required rate of return is 12%: i) Compute the project’s NPV.
What decision should be made using NPV? ii) Compute the project’s
IRR. How would the IRR decision rule be used for this project, and
what decision would be reached?

A project has an initial cost of $54,200 and is expected to
produce cash inflows of $19,200, $27,300, and $44,600 over the next
3 years, respectively. What is the project’s internal rate of
return?

A project has initial costs of $1,000 and subsequent cash
inflows of $100, 200, 400 and 700. The company’s 10% cost of
capital is an appropriate discount rate for this average risk
project. Calculate the MIRR. Please show your work. Thank you.

Two mutually exclusive projects have an initial cost of $60,000
each. Project A produces cash inflows of $30,000, $37,000, and
$20,000 for Years 1 through 3, respectively. Project B produces
cash inflows of $80,000 in Year 2 only. The required rate of return
is 10 percent for Project A and 11 percent for Project B. Which
project(s) should be accepted and why?
Project A, because it has the higher required rate of
return.
Project A, because it has the larger...
