Question

Marian Plunket owns her own business and is considering an investment. If she undertakes the investment, it will pay $ 5 comma 040 at the end of each of the next 3 years. The opportunity requires an initial investment of $ 1 comma 260 plus an additional investment at the end of the second year of $ 6 comma 300. What is the NPV of this opportunity if the interest rate is 1.9 % per year? Should Marian take it?

Answer #1

Initial investment= $1,260

Cash flow in year 1= $5,040

Cash flow in year 2= $5,040 - $6,300 = -$1,260

Cash flow in year 3= $5,040

Net present value can be solved using a financial calculator. The steps to solve on the financial calculator:

- Press the CF button.
- CF0= -$1,260. Indicate the initial cash flow by a negative sign since it is a cash outflow.
- Cash flow for each year should be entered.
- Press Enter and down arrow after inputting each cash flow.
- After entering the last cash flow cash flow, press the NPV button and enter the interest rate of 1.9%.
- Press enter after that. Press the down arrow and CPT buttons to get the net present value.

Net present value at 1.9%
interest rate is **$7,235.88.**

Marian should take the investment since it generates a positive net present value.

In case of any query, kindly comment on the solution.
