Question

Project A has an IRR of 15%. Project B has an IRR of 13%. Both projects have a cost of capital of 12%. Which of the following statements would be correct?

A. Both projects have a positive NPV. True or False? Explain

B. Project A must have a higher NPV than Project B, True or False? Explain.

C. If Project B has a higher NPV when cost of capital is 8%, then Project B must also have higher NPV if the cost of capital were more than 13%. True or False? Explain

Answer #1

A. True.

In the context of capital budgeting, the internal rate of return ( IRR ) is the discount rate at which the net present value ( NPV) of all cash flows of a project becomes zero.

The cost of capital is used as the MARR for discounting cash flows to compute the NPV.

As long as the respective IRRs of the projects exceed the cost of capital, the NPVs would be positive. When the cost of capital equals the IRR, NPV would be zero. When the cost of captal exceeds the IRR, NPV would be negative.

B. False. The NPV depends not only on the cost of capital, but also on the amount and the timing of the cash flows,the length of the project life, and the amount and timing of the investments involved.

C. False.

NPV decreases with increasing cost of capital.

Project A has an internal rate of return (IRR) of 15 percent.
Project B has an IRR of 14 percent. Both projects have a required
return of 12 percent. Which of the following statements is most
correct?
a.
Both projects have a positive net present value (NPV).
b.
Project A must have a higher NPV than project B.
c.
If the required return were less than 12 percent, Project B
would have a higher IRR than Project A.
d.
Project...

Consider two projects, X and Y. Project X's IRR is 19% and
Project Y's IRR is 17%. The projects have the same risk and the
same lives, and each has constant cash flows during each year of
their lives. If the cost of capital is 10%, Project Y has a higher
NPV than X. Given this information, which of the following
statements is CORRECT? (Hint: it is useful to draw NPV
profiles)
The crossover rate must be less than 10%....

Mento Mills is considering two mutually
exclusive projects. The Amber Project has an internal rate of
return (IRR) of 12 percent, while Bukka Project has an IRR of 14
percent. The two projects have very similar risk. Both projects
have the same NPV when the cost of capital is 7 percent. Assume
each project has an initial cash investment followed by a series of
cash returns.
The following are possible statements that can be made about
this information:
I. If...

1(a). (TRUE or FALSE?) A project that has a positive NPV will
also have an IRR that is greater than the discount rate if the
proposed capital budgeting projects are independent.
1(b). (TRUE or FALSE?) Projects with NPVs of positive values
will reduce the firm’s value but it just meet the firm’s
requirements.

A firm must choose between two mutually exclusive projects, A
& B. Project A has an initial cost of $10000. Its projected net
cash flows are $800, $2000, $3000, $4000, and $5000 at the end of
years 1 through 5, respectively. Project B has an initial cost of
$14000, and its projected net cash flows are $7000, $5000, $3000,
$2000, and $1000 at the end of years 1 through 5, respectively. The
firm’s cost of capital is 6.00%. Choose the...

Projects T and Q are mutually-exclusive investment
alternatives, Each project requires a net investment of $20,000,
followed by a series of positive net cash flows. Both projects have
a useful life equal to 10 years. Project T has an NPV of $36,000 at
a 0% discount rate, while project Q has an NPV of $30,000 at 0%.
Furthermore, at a discount rate of 15 percent, the two projects
have identical positive NPVs. Given this, which of the following
statements is...

You are trying to determine which of two mutually exclusive
projects to undertake. Both projects have the same initial outlay.
Project Adam has an NPV of $4,392.15, an IRR of 11.33%, and an EAA
of $1,158.64. Project Eve has an NPV of $5,833.73, an IRR of 9.88%,
and an EAA of $1,093.50. The cost of capital for both projects is
9%, the projects have different lives, and the projects are not
repeatable. What should you do?
You should do Project...
