Quantitative Problem: Bellinger Industries is considering two projects for inclusion in its capital budget, and you have been asked to do the analysis. Both projects' after-tax cash flows are shown on the time line below. Depreciation, salvage values, net operating working capital requirements, and tax effects are all included in these cash flows. Both projects have 4-year lives, and they have risk characteristics similar to the firm's average project. Bellinger's WACC is 8%.

 0 1 2 3 4 Project A -980 620 310 280 330 Project B -980 220 245 430 780

What is Project A's NPV? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest cent.

What is Project B's NPV? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest cent.

Calculation of NPV

NPV of Project A = Present value of all cash inflows - Initial cash outlay

=[ 620*PVIF,8%,1 + 310*PVIF,8%,2 + 280*PVIF,8%,3 + 330*PVIF,8%,4 ] - 980

=[ 620*.925926 + 310*.857339 + 280*.793832 + 330*.735029 ] - 980

=574.07412+265.77509+222.27296+242.55957 - 980

=324.68

NPV of Project B = Present value of all cash inflows - Initial cash outlay

=[ 220*PVIF,8%,1 + 245*PVIF,8%,2 + 430*PVIF,8%,3 + 780*PVIF,8%,4 ] - 980

=[ 220*.925926 + 245*.857339 + 430*.793832 + 780*.735029 ] - 980

=203.70372+210.048055+341.34776+573.32262 -980

=348.42

NOTE

The formula for calculating the Present Value Inflow Factor (PVIF) is [1 / (1 + r)n], where “r” is Discount rate and “n” is the useful life of investment
