Answer #1

Part 1:

The internal rate of return identifies the rate **at which
the net present value of the project will become zero. It is
the** minimum acceptable discount rate.

**Option A is correct**

**Part 2:**

The net present value rule states that you should accept a project if the NPV is positive.

**Option D is correct**

**Part 3:**

A net present value of zero implies that an investment has initial cash outlay is equal to present value of all cash inflows, which implies it is neither increasing shareholders wealth nor decreasing it.

**Option C is correct.**

**Part 4**

Internal rate of return is the rate at which net present value of the project becomes 0

**Option B is correct**

30) Internal Rate of Return is a tool Financial Analysts use to
determine whether to accept or reject a potential project the firm
is considering. It is defined as:
Multiple Choice
the discount rate that results in a zero net present value (NPV)
for the project.
the discount rate that results in a net present value (NPV)
equal to the project's initial cost.
the discount rate that causes a project's after-tax income to
equal zero.
the rate of return required...

Which of the following statements defines the internal rate of
return (IRR) for a project?
A. Discount rate which results in a zero NPV
B. Discount rate which results in a NPV equal to the project's
initial cost
C. Rate of return required by the project's investors
D. The current market rate of return for projects of similar
risk

Med, Inc. is a specialty firm in the medical equipment field
with a cost of capital of 13.7 percent. With the aging of America,
the firm recognize the opportunities that exist in the medical
field and is considering expansion in this area. At present, there
is an opportunity for the firm to be involved in a new medical
devices project. The project will require an initial investment of
$8.4 million with annual returns of $2.2 million per year for seven...

Using Internal Rate of Return (IRR) for analysis can be flawed
because a. the discount rate can be overstated b. project cash
flows are expected to be reinvested at the internal rate of return
c. the project's cash flows can be back loaded d interest rates can
change over time for extended projects e it is generally easier to
understand a project's Net Present Value rather than its Internal
Rate of Return
