A project has an initial cost of \$63,400, expected net cash inflows of \$8,000 per year for 11 years, and a cost of capital of 14%. What is the project's PI? Do not round your intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places.

Profitability Index is calculated using the below formula:

Profitability Index= NPV + Initial investment/ Initial investment

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

• Press the CF button.
• CF0= -\$63,400. 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 cost of capital of 14%.
• Press enter after that. Press the down arrow and CPT buttons to get the net present value.

Net present value at 14% cost of capital is -\$19,778.14.

Profitability Index= -\$19,778.14 + \$63,400/ \$63,400

= \$43,621.86 / \$63,400

= 0.69.
