Quantitative Problem: Bellinger Industries is considering two projects for inclusion in its capital budget, and you have been asked to do the analysis. Both projects' after-tax cash flows are shown on the time line below. Depreciation, salvage values, net operating working capital requirements, and tax effects are all included in these cash flows. Both projects have 4-year lives, and they have risk characteristics similar to the firm's average project. Bellinger's WACC is 8%.

Project A

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

• Press the CF button.
• CF0= -$1,100. It is entered with a negative sign since it is a cash outflow. • Cash flow for all the years should be entered. • Press Enter and down arrow after inputting each cash flow. • After entering the last cash flow, press the NPV button and enter the weighted average cost of capital of 8%. • Press the down arrow and CPT buttons to get the net present value. Net Present value of cash flows at 8% weighted average cost of capital is$258.67.

Project B

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

• Press the CF button.
• CF0= -$1,100. It is entered with a negative sign since it is a cash outflow. • Cash flow for all the years should be entered. • Press Enter and down arrow after inputting each cash flow. • After entering the last cash flow, press the NPV button and enter the weighted average cost of capital of 8%. • Press the down arrow and CPT buttons to get the net present value. Net Present value of cash flows at 8% weighted average cost of capital is$282.41.

If the projects were independent, then both projects can be accepted since they have a positive net present value.

If the projects were mutually exclusive, project B is accepted since it has the highest net present value.
