Question

A stand-alone capital project has the following projected cash flows:

Year 0 1 2 3 Cash flow ($4,000) $1,500 $1,200 $2,395

If the firm's cost of capital is 14%, which of the following statements is true?

a.the IRR is greater than the cost of capital and the project
should be undertaken

b.the project should be rejected because the IRR is 12%, which is
less than the project's cost of capital

c.the IRR is less than 12% and the project should be
undertaken

d.the NPV of the project is positive and the project should be
undertaken

Answer #1

Cash Flows:

Year 0 = -$4,000

Year 1 = $1,500

Year 2 = $1,200

Year 3 = $2,395

Cost of Capital = 14%

NPV = -$4,000 + $1,500/1.14 + $1,200/1.14^2 +
$2,395/1.14^3

NPV = -$144.29

Let IRR be i%

NPV = -$4,000 + $1,500/(1+i) + $1,200/(1+i)^2 +
$2,395/(1+i)^3

0 = -$4,000 + $1,500/(1+i) + $1,200/(1+i)^2 + $2,395/(1+i)^3

Using financial calculator, i = 12%

Therefore, **the project should be rejected because the
IRR is 12%, which is less than the project's cost of
capital.**

The project has an IRR of 17% . The firm's cost of capital is 11
percent. What is the project's net present value (NPV)?

Which of the following statements is CORRECT? Assume that the
project being considered has normal cash flows, with one outflow
followed by a series of inflows.
Group of answer choices
The lower the cost of capital used to calculate a project's NPV,
the lower the calculated NPV will be.
If a project's NPV is less than zero, then its IRR must be less
than the cost of capital.
If a project's NPV is greater than zero, then its IRR must...

Which of the following statements is CORRECT? Assume that the
project being considered has normal cash flows, with one outflow
followed by a series of inflows.
a.
The NPVs of relatively risky projects should be found using
relatively low costs of capital.
b.
If a project's NPV is greater than zero, then its IRR must be
less than the cost of capital.
c.
The higher the cost of capital used to calculate the NPV, the
lower the calculated NPV will...
