What is the equivalent annual annuity for a 4-yr project with the following cash flows and a discount rate of 9%?

 Year Cash Flow 0 (175,000) 1 45,000 2 55,000 3 65,000 4 85,000

What is the payback period for a project with the following cash flows:

 Year Cash Flow 0 (175,000) 1 45,000 2 55,000 3 65,000 4 85,000

What is the net present value for a project with the following cash flows and a discount rate of 9%?

 Year Cash Flow 0 (175,000) 1 45,000 2 55,000 3 65,000 4 85,000

Present value of inflows=cash inflow*Present value of discounting factor(rate%,time period)

=45000/1.09+55000/1.09^2+65000/1.09^3+85000/1.09^4

=\$197984.8724

NPV=Present value of inflows-Present value of outflows

=\$197984.8724-\$175000

=\$22984.87(Approx)

Equivalent annual annuity=[(rate*NPV)]/[1-(1+rate)^-time period]

=[(\$22984.87*0.09)]/[1-(1.09)^-4]

=(2068.63852/0.291574788)

=7094.71(Approx)

 Year Cash flows Cumulative cash flows 0 (175000) (175000) 1 45000 (130000) 2 55000 (75000) 3 65000 (10000) 4 85000 75000

Payback period=Last period with a negative cumulative cash flow+(Absolute value of cumulative cash flows at that period/Cash flow after that period).

=3+(10000/85000)=3.12 years(Approx).
