Question

A firm must choose between two mutually exclusive projects, A & B. Project A has an initial cost of $11000. Its projected net cash flows are $900, $2000, $3000, $4000, and $5000 at the end of years 1 through 5, respectively. Project B has an initial cost of $15000, and its projected net cash flows are $7000, $5000, $3000, $2000, and $1000 at the end of years 1 through 5, respectively. At what cost of capital would the firm be indifferent to the two projects (i.e. be willing to choose either one)? 3.47% 6.58% 6.82% 7.66% 7.18%

Answer #1

Project A | -11000 | 900 | 2000 | 3000 | 4000 | 5000 |

Project B | -15000 | 7000 | 5000 | 3000 | 2000 | 1000 |

Change | -4000 | 6100 | 3000 | 0 | -2000 | -4000 |

Now we will calculate the IRR of the change and this IRR will be the rate for which two projects will be indifferent.

IRR is the rate for which NPV equlas zero.

0 = 6100/(1+IRR)^1 + 3000/(1+IRR)^2 + 0/(1+IRR)^3 + (-2000)/(1+IRR)^4 + (-4000) /(1+IRR)^5+ (-4000)

Now, we will use the heat and trial method to get that value for which the above equation will be satisfied.

**IRR = 7.66% Answer**

A
firm has a WACC of 8% and is deciding between two mutually
exclusive projects. Project A has an initial investment of $63. The
additional cash flows for project A are: year 1 = $20, year 2 =
$39, year 3 = $67. Project B has an initial investment of $73.The
cash flows for project B are: year 1 = $60, year 2 = $45, year 3 =
$32. Find the Payback and NPV for each project

Suppose you are given the following two projects A and B with
the cash flows below, if the cost of capital is 10%, what is the
Profitability Index (PI) of projects A and B?

Globex Corp. has to choose between two mutually exclusive
projects. If it chooses project A, Globex Corp. will have the
opportunity to make a similar investment in three years. However,
if it chooses project B, it will not have the opportunity to make a
second investment. The following table lists the cash flows for
these projects. If the firm uses the replacement chain (common
life) approach, what will be the difference between the net present
value (NPV) of project A...
