Question

Axis Corp. is considering an investment in the best of two mutually exclusive projects.

Project Kelvin involves an overhaul of the existing system; it will cost $20,000 and generate cash inflows of $15,000 per year for the next 3 years.

Project Thompson involves replacement of the existing system; it will cost $265,000 and generate cash inflows of $61,000 per year for 6 years.

Using a(n) 9.28% cost of capital, calculate each project's NPV, and make a recommendation based on your findings.

Answer #1

Using least common approach to calculate the Npv of the project

Calculating the Npv of existing system using financial calculator

Inputs: C0= -20,000

C1= 15,000. Frequency= 2

C2= 15,000 - 20,000 = -5,000. Frequency= 1

C3= 15,000. Frequency= 3

I= 9.28%

Npv= compute

We get, Npv of the project as **$31,405.47**

**Using financial calculator to calculate Npv of new
project**

Inputs: C0= -265,000

C1= 61,000. Frequency= 6

I = 9.28%

Npv= compute

We get, Npv of the project as **$6,371.64**

**As the Npv of the existing machine is more than the new
machine, we should choose the existing machine.**

Axis Corp. is considering an investment in the best of two
mutually exclusive projects. Project Kelvin involves an overhaul of
the existing system; it will cost $70,000 and generate cash
inflows of $30,000 per year for the next 3 years. Project Thompson
involves the replacement of the existing system; it will cost

Emmar is considering investment in the best of two independent
projects. Project A involves an overhaul of the existing system; it
will cost $47,000 and generate cash inflows of $21,000 per year for
the next 3 years. Project B involves replacement of the existing
system; it will cost $276,000 and generate cash inflows of $61,000
per year for 6 years. Using an 8% cost of capital, calculate each
project's NPV, and make a recommendation based on your
findings.

Benton Exploration Company is considering two mutually exclusive
projects. Project A has a cost of $10,000 and is expected to
generate net cash flows of $4,000 per year for 5 years. Project B
has a cost of $25,000 and is expected to generate net cash flows of
$9,000 per years for 5 years. Benton's cost of capital is 15
percent.
Based on the net present value (NPV) method, which project
should be undertaken?

A firm needs to decide between two mutually exclusive projects.
Project Alpha requires an initial investment of $37,000 today and
is expected to generate cash flows of $31,000 for the next 4 years.
Project Beta requires an initial investment of $92,000 and is
expected to generate cash flows of $36,400 for the next 8 years.
The cost of capital is 10%. The projects can be repeated with no
change in cash flows. What is the NPV of the project that...

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...

Haley’s Crockett Designs Inc. is considering two mutually
exclusive projects. Both projects require an initial investment of
$11,000 and are typical average-risk projects for the firm. Project

The Dark Blue Furniture Company is considering two mutually
exclusive expansion projects. Project X will cost $20,000 to
implement, and will generate $10,000 each year in positive net,
after-tax cash flows for the next 3 years. Project Y will cost
$3,000 to implement, and will generate $2,500 in net, after-tax
cash flows for the next 3 years. The firm’s WACC is 9%.

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...
