Question

A firm needs to estimate the Equivalent Annual Annuity (EAA) of two projects can be repeated indefinitiley. Project X requires an intial investment of 46,000 today and is expected to generate annual cash flows of 12,000 for the next 24 years. Project Y requirs an initial investment of 170,000 and is expected to generate monthly cash flows of 2,800 for the next 10 years. The cost of capital is 12%. The ____ has the highest EAA, which is ____ A.) Project Y; 6,091 B.) Project X; 6,639 C.) Project Y; 4,453 D.) Project X; 4,854 E.) Project X; 6,091

Answer #1

Project X

PMT = 12,000, N = 24, FV = 0, rate = 12%

use PV function in Excel

present value of inflows = 93,412

NPV = 93,412 - 46,000 = 47,412

PV = 47,412, rate = 12%, FV = 0, N = 24

use PMT function in Excel

EAA = 6091

Project Y

PMT = 2,800, N = 120, FV = 0, rate = 12%/12

use PV function in Excel

present value of inflows = 195,161

NPV = 195,161 - 170000 = 25,161

PV = 25,161, rate = 12%, FV = 0, N = 10

use PMT function in Excel

EAA = 4453

ans: E.) Project X; 6,091

A firm needs to estimate the equivalent annual annuity (EAA) of
two projects, since these projects can be repeated indefinitely.
Project X requires an intial investment of 31,000 today and is
expected to generate annual cash flows of 11,000 for the next 21
years. Project Y requires an intial investment of 120,000 and is
expected to generate monthly cash flows of 1,800 for the next 15
years. The cost of capital is 10%. The ____ has the highest EAA,
which...

Your firm is considering two projects. Your boss asked you to
use the Equivalent Annual Annuity method. Project A has an expected
life of seven years, will cost $50,000,000, and will produce net
cash flows of $12,000,000 each year. Project B has a life of
fourteen years, will cost $60,000,000, and will produce net cash
flows of $10,000,000 each year. The firm’s cost of capital is 12%.
What is the equivalent annual annuity for each project? Which
project should the...

Konyvkiado Inc. is considering two mutually exclusive projects.
Both require an initial investment of $15,000 at t = 0. Project S
has an expected life of 2 years with after-tax cash inflows of
$7,000 and $12,000 at the end of Years 1 and 2, respectively. In
addition, Project S can be repeated at the end of Year 2 with no
changes in its cash flows. Project L has an expected life of 4
years and a cash-flow of $5200/year. Each...

Project X and Project Y are two mutually exclusive projects.
Project X requires an initial outlay of $38,000 and generates a net
cash flow of $14,000 per year for six years. Project Y requires an
initial outlay of $52,000, and will generate cash flows of $15,300
per year for eight years. Which project should be chosen and why?
(Assume that the discount rate for both projects is 10
percent).
A. Project X because Project X has
a larger NPV than Project...

You are the finance manager for your company. You and your team
have been analysing two mutually exclusive projects. The first
project initially costs $1,000 and will return cash flows of $200
per year for the next six years. The second project initially costs

The method that would not be correct when comparing these two
projects is:
A. Calculate the net present value of each project over a...

Faleye Consulting is deciding which of two computer systems to
purchase. It can purchase state-of-the-art equipment (System A) for
$20,000, which will generate cash flows of $7,000 at the end of
each of the next 6 years. Alternatively, the company can spend
$13,000 for equipment that can be used for 3 years and will
generate cash flows of $7,000 at the end of each year (System B).
If the company’s WACC is 5% and both “projects” can be repeated
indefinitely,...
