Question

16. A project yields an annual benefit of $250/year for ever. If the rate of return is 8%, what is the present value? If it costs $5000 should you proceed? If it were a public project how might your answer change?

Answer #1

Annual Project Yield = $ 250, Rate of Return = 8 %

Therefore, Present Valu (PV) = Annual Project Yield / Rate of Return = 250 / 0.08 = $ 3125

The project should be taken up only when its PV is greater than its cost. Since the cost of $ 5000 is greater than the PV one should not proceed with the same as it does not lead to economic benefits. However, if the project is a public one then the project can be taken up for public good even if it does not provide economic benefit.

16. Find internal rate of return of a project with an initial
cost of $43,000, expected net cash inflows of $9,550 per year for 8
years, and a cost of capital of 10.75%.

Assume that the project is expected to return monetary benefits
of $20,000 the first year, and increasing benefits of $5,000 until
the end of project life (year 1 = $20,000, year 2 = $25,000, year 3
= $30,000). The project also has one-time costs of $30,000, and
fixed recurring costs of $10,000 until the end of project life. The
project has a discount rate of 8% and a three-year time
horizon.

Let’s say an economist does a cost-benefit analysis on a green
energy project to stop climate change. The economist finds that
it’s more cost-effective to not do the project, and invest the
funds elsewhere, because the benefits of the project are largely to
future generations (and are thus discounted), while the project
costs are up front. Is this fair to all parties involved? How much
does your answer change if you assume that future generations will
have a much higher...

The internal rate of return (IRR) refers to the compound annual
rate of return that a project generates based on its up-front cost
and subsequent cash flows. Consider this case:
Blue Llama Mining Company is evaluating a proposed capital
budgeting project (project Delta) that will require an initial
investment of $1,600,000.
Blue Llama Mining Company has been basing capital budgeting
decisions on a project’s NPV; however, its new CFO wants to start
using the IRR method for capital budgeting decisions....

The company has a project with a 5-year life that requires an
initial investment of $210,000, and is expected to yield annual
cash flows of $59,500. What is the net present value of the project
if the required rate of return is set at 8%?
Net Present Value= ($59,500*???)-210,000
What NPV does the previous calculation
yield? $Note: Round your answer to the nearest
whole dollar.
