Question

A project has the following total (or net) cash flows.

________________________________________

Year Total (or net) cash flow

________________________________________

1 $50,000

2 70,000

3 80,000

4 100,000

_______________________________________

The required rate of return on the project is 13 percent. The
initial investment (or initial cost or initial outlay) of the
project is $100,000.

a) Find the (regular) payback period of the project.

b) Compute the discounted payback period of the project.

Answer #1

a.Payback period= full years until recovery + unrecovered cost at the start of the year/ cash flow during the year

= 1 year + ($100,000 - $50,000)/ $70,000

= 1 year + $50,000/ $70,000

= 1 year+ 0.71

= 0.71 years.

b.Discounted cash flow in year 1= $44,247.79.

Discounted cash flow in year 2= $54,820.27

Discounted cash flow in year 3= $55,443.90.

Cumulative cash flow in 2 years= $99,068.06

Discounted payback period= full years until recovery + unrecovered cost at the start of the year/ discounted cash flow during the year

= 2 years + ($100,000 - $99,068.06)/ $55,443.90

= 2 years + $931.94/ $55,443.90

= 2 years + 0.0168

= 2.02 years.

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

You are considering a project with an initial cash outlay of
$100,000 and expected free cash flows of $23,000 at the end of each
year for 6 years. The required rate of return for this project is
10 percent.
a. What is the project’s payback period?
b. What is the project’s discounted payback period?
c. What is the project’s NPV ?
d. What is the project’s PI ?
e. What is the project’s IRR ?
f. What is the project’s...

(Discounted payback period) Sheinhardt Wig Company is
considering a project that has the following cash flows: If the
project's appropriate discount rate is 9 percent, what is the
project's discounted payback period? The project's discounted
payback period is nothing years. (Round to two decimal
places.)
YEAR PROJECT CASH FLOW
0 -60,000
1 20,000
2 50,000
3 65,000
4 55,000
5 40,000

An investment project has annual cash inflows of $5,100, $3,200,
$4,400, and $3,600, for the next four years, respectively. The
discount rate is 15 percent.
a. What is the discounted payback period for these cash flows if
the initial cost is $5,000?
b. What is the discounted payback period for these cash flows if
the initial cost is $7,100?
c. What is the discounted payback period for these cash flows if
the initial cost is $10,100?

When the annual cash flows are unequal, the payback period is
computed by adding the annual cash flows until such time as the
original investment is recovered. If a fraction of a year is
needed, it is assumed that cash flows occur evenly within each
year.
The steps for determining the payback period with uneven cash
flows is as follows:
Add the annual cash flows to one another until the investment
is recovered.
For each full year's worth of cash...

Sun King Computers is considering the following project. The
projected net cash flows are:
Initial Cost is $3.5 million; annual net cash flows are $815,000
per year for 7 years.
What is the Discounted Payback Period if the appropriate discount
rate is 7.5%?

A project that requires an initial investment of $100,000 and
generates the following cash flows:

If the cost of capital is 8.5% have a discounted payback period
of _______________

A firm is planning a new project that is projected to yield
cash flows of - $595,000 in Year 1, $586,000 per year in Years 2
through 5, and $578,000 in Years 6 through 11. This investment will
cost the company $2,580,000 today (initial outlay). We assume that
the firm's cost of capital is 11%.
1. Compute the projects payback period, net present value
(NPV), profitability index (PI), internal rate of return (IRR), and
modified internal rate of return (MIRR)....

You are analyzing a project and have prepared the following
data:
Year Cash flows
0 -$275,000
1 $ 50,000
2 $ 75,000
3 $ 95,000
4 $ 15,000
Required payback period 3 years
Required rate of return 5%
You are required to:
a) Determine the project’s Profitability Index, Internal Rate of
Return, NPV and Discounted Payback
Period
b) Decide whether to accept the project based on the above
investment decision criteria?
