Question

Two mutually exclusive projects have an initial cost of $12,000. Project A produces cash inflows of $10,200, $8,700, and $3,500 for years 1 through 3 respectively. Project B produces cash inflows of $6,700, $3,500, and $12,600 for years 1 through 3 respectively. The required rate is 10 percent. which project would you choose to invest in and why?

Answer #1

When projects are mutually exclusive, we should choose the project which has the highest NPV

Project A:

NPV = Present value of cash inflows - present value of cash outflows

NPV = -12,000 + 10,200 / (1 + 0.1)^1 + 8,700 / (1 + 0.1)^2 + 3,500 / (1 + 0.1)^3

NPV = -12,000 + 9,272.7273 + 7,190.0826 + 2,629.6018

NPV = $7,092.41

Project B:

NPV = -12,000 + 6,700 / (1 + 0.1)^1 + 3,500 / (1 + 0.1)^2 + 12,600 / (1 + 0.1)^3

NPV = -12,000 + 6,090.9091 + 2,892.56198 + 9,466.56649

NPV = 6,450.04

**Project A should be accepted as it has the highest
NPV**

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...

The Walk-Up Window is considering two mutually exclusive
projects. Project A has an initial cost of $64,230 and annual cash
flows of $25,200 for three years. Project B has an initial cost of
$45,400 and annual cash flows of $21,400, $21,900, and $10,200 for
Years 1 to 3, respectively. What is the incremental
IRRA–B? Which project should be accepted if the discount
rate is 9 percent? Which project should be accepted if the discount
rate is 6 percent?

Ace Inc. is evaluating two mutually exclusive projects—Project A
and Project B. The initial cash outflow is $50,000 for each
project. Project A results in cash inflows of $15,625 at the end of
each of the next five years. Project B results in one cash inflow
of $99,500 at the end of the fifth year. The required rate of
return of Ace Inc. is 10 percent. Ace Inc. should invest in:
a. Project B because it has no cash inflows...

You are considering two mutually exclusive projects that have
been assigned the same discount rate of 10.5 percent. Project A has

$16,400, $28,900, and $31,700 for Years 1 to 3, respectively.
Project B has an initial cost of $79,400, and should produce cash
inflows of $0, $48,300, and $42,100, for Years 1 to 3,
respectively. What is the incremental IRR?
7.83%
5.40%
−15.40%
-4.67%
13.89%
