Question

Suppose a company has proposed a new 5-year project. The project has an initial outlay of $23,000 and has expected cash flows of $3,000 in year 1, $5,000 in year 2, $6,000 in year 3, $7,000 in year 4, and $8,000 in year 5. The required rate of return is 15% for projects at this company. What is the Payback for this project? (Answer to the nearest tenth of a year, e.g. 3.2)

Answer #1

HI

A payback is the time period at which project has recovered its initial investment.

Here initial investment = $23000

Y1 cumulative cash flow = -23000 + 3000 = -$20,000

Y2 cumulative cash flow = -20,000 + 5000 = - $15,000

Y3 cumulative cash flow = -15000 + 6000 = -$9,000

Y4 cumulative cash flow = -9,000 + 7000 = -$2,000

Y5 cumulative cash flow = -2000 + 8000 = $6000

Hence payback period will be between 4 and 5 years

**payback period = 4-(-2000/8000)**

**= 4+ 1/4**

**= 4.25 years or 4.3 years**

**Thanks**

Suppose a company has two mutually exclusive projects, both of
which are three years in length. Project A has an initial outlay of
$7,000 and has expected cash flows of $4,000 in year 1, $5,000 in
year 2, and $6,000 in year 3. Project B has an initial outlay of
$7,000 and has expected cash flows of $4,000 in year 1, $3,000 in
year 2, and $4,000 in year 3. The required rate of return is 12%

A company is considering a 6-year project that requires an
initial outlay of $24,000. The project engineer has estimated that
the operating cash flows will be $4,000 in year 1, $6,000 in year
2, $7,000 in year 3, $7,000 in year 4, $7,000 in year 5, and $9,000
in year 6. At the end of the project, the equipment will be fully
depreciated, classified as 5-year property under MACRS. The project
engineer believes the equipment can be sold for $5,000...

(A)
A company is considering a major expansion of its product line. The
initial outlay would be $10,100,000 and the project would generate
cash flows of $1,290,000 per year for 20 years. The appropriate
discount rate is 10%. (a) calculate the NPV (b) calculate the PI
(c) calculate the IRR (d) should this project be excepted?
(B) The same company is considering a new system for its lot.
The system will provide annual labor savings and reduced waste
totaling $175,000...

Project R requires an initial outlay at t = 0 of $14,000, and
its expected cash flows would be $6,000 per year for 5 years.
Mutually exclusive Project L requires an initial outlay at t = 0 of
$32,500, and its expected cash flows would be $13,050 per year for
5 years. If both projects have a WACC of 14%, which project would
you recommend?
Select the correct answer.
a. Neither Project S nor L, since each project's NPV <...
