Determine each? project's risk-adjusted net present value.

 Initial investment ??\$220,000 ??\$320,000 Cash? inflows: Year 1 ??? ? \$140,000 ?? ? \$140,000 Year 2 ?????? 40,000 ??? 140,000 Year 3 ??????50,000 ??? 140,000 Year 4 ??????70,000 ??? 140,000 Year 5 ???? 120,000 ??? 140,000
 Replacement decision 99?% Modification or expansion of existing product line ?15% Project unrelated to current operations 17% Research and development operations ?20%

Solution

NPV for project A :

To evaluate this project we consider 99% as its replacement one.

FCFt is the annual free cash flow at time period t

k = required rate of return

IO = inital cash outlay

n = Projects expected life

NPV for project A : (140000*.5025+ 40000*.2525+50000*.1268+70000*.0637+120000*.0320) - 220000

: (70350 + 10100+6340+4459+3840 ) - 220000

: - \$124911

NPV for Project B

To evaluate this project we consider 99% as it is project unrelated to current operations.

We will use cumulative discount factor @17% for 5years - 3.199

NPV : (140000*3.199) - 320000

: 447860 - 320000 : \$127860
