Answer #1

**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**

Shanks Corporation is considering a capital budgeting project
that involves investing $600,000 in equipment that would have a
useful life of 3 years and zero salvage value. The company would
also need to invest $20,000 immediately in working capital which
would be released for use elsewhere at the end of the project in 3
years. The net annual operating cash inflow, which is the
difference between the incremental sales revenue and incremental
cash operating expenses, would be $300,000 per year....
