Question

**Mento Mills** is considering two mutually
exclusive projects. The Amber Project has an internal rate of
return (IRR) of 12 percent, while Bukka Project has an IRR of 14
percent. The two projects have very similar risk. Both projects
have the same NPV when the cost of capital is 7 percent. Assume
each project has an initial cash investment followed by a series of
cash returns.

The following are possible statements that can be made about this information:

I. If the cost of capital is 13 percent, Bukka's NPV will be higher than Amber's NPV.

II. If the cost of capital is 9 percent, Bukka's NPV will be higher than Amber's NPV.

III. By increasing the cost of capital, Bukka's NPV will decrease more slowly than Amber's NPV.

IV. Bukka's initial cash investment is less than Amber's initial cash investment.

Which is the best conclusion about these statements?

Select one:

a. Statements I and III are correct.

b. Statements I and II are correct.

c. Only statement II is correct.

d. All the statements are correct.

e. Only statement I is correct.

Answer #1

I am giving following example to prove my option.

Discount rate | NPV of Project Bukka | NPV of Project Amber |

0% | 360000 | 450000 |

2% | 282573.486 | 342463.175 |

4% | 220261.9476 | 255919.3716 |

6% | 169640.9636 | 185612.4494 |

8% | 128141.2328 | 127973.9344 |

10% | 93818.86223 | 80303.97532 |

As we can see that the cross over rate is somewhere 7% where NPV of the both project will be equal once the discount rate increases over 7% then NPV of Bukka project is start increasing in compare to Amber. Which make both option I & II correct. Then we can also observe that the NPV is decreasing lesser to Bukka in compare to Amber which make option III correct.

Thus the correct answer for this question will be All the statement are correct that is option d.

A firm must choose between two mutually exclusive projects, A
& B. Project A has an initial cost of $10000. Its projected net
cash flows are $800, $2000, $3000, $4000, and $5000 at the end of
years 1 through 5, respectively. Project B has an initial cost of
$14000, and its projected net cash flows are $7000, $5000, $3000,
$2000, and $1000 at the end of years 1 through 5, respectively. The
firm’s cost of capital is 6.00%. Choose the...

Projects T and Q are mutually-exclusive investment
alternatives, Each project requires a net investment of $20,000,
followed by a series of positive net cash flows. Both projects have
a useful life equal to 10 years. Project T has an NPV of $36,000 at
a 0% discount rate, while project Q has an NPV of $30,000 at 0%.
Furthermore, at a discount rate of 15 percent, the two projects
have identical positive NPVs. Given this, which of the following
statements is...

Two mutually exclusive projects each have a cost of $10,000. The
total, undiscounted cash flows from Project L are $15,000, while
the undiscounted cash flows from Project S total $13,000. Their NPV
profiles cross at a discount rate of 10 percent. Which of the
following statements best describes this situation? Please leave an
explanation. a. The NPV and IRR methods will select the
same project if the cost of capital is greater than 10 percent; for
example, 18 percent. b. The...

Consider two projects, X and Y. Project X's IRR is 19% and
Project Y's IRR is 17%. The projects have the same risk and the
same lives, and each has constant cash flows during each year of
their lives. If the cost of capital is 10%, Project Y has a higher
NPV than X. Given this information, which of the following
statements is CORRECT? (Hint: it is useful to draw NPV
profiles)
The crossover rate must be less than 10%....

You are trying to determine which of two mutually exclusive
projects to undertake. Project Adam has an initial outlay of
$10,000, an NPV of $4,392.15, an IRR of 11.33%, and an EAA of
$1,158.64. Project Eve has an initial outlay of $15,000, an NPV of
$5,833.73, an IRR of 9.88%, and an EAA of $1,093.50. The cost of
capital for both projects is 9%, and the projects have different
lives. If the projects are repeatable, then:
You should do both...

You are deciding between two mutually exclusive investment
opportunities. Both require the same initial investment of $11.0
million. Investment A will generate $2.40 million per year
(starting at the end of the first year) in perpetuity. Investment B
will generate $1.70 million at the end of the first year, and its
revenues will grow at 3.2% per year for every year after that.
Which investment has the higher IRR ?
Which investment has the higher NPV when the cost of...
