Question

You are analyzing a project with an initial cost of £50,000. The project is expected to return £12,000 the first year, £36,000 the second year, and £40,000 the third and final year. There is no salvage value. Assume the current spot rate is £.6346. The nominal return relevant to the project is 12 percent in the U.S. The nominal risk-free rate in the U.S. is 3.4 percent while it is 4.1 percent in the U.K. Assume that uncovered interest rate parity exists. What is the net present value of this project in U.S. dollars? |

$23,611 |

$26,509 |

$26,930 |

$29,639 |

$30,796 |

Answer #1

E(S1) = 0.6346 x [1 + (0.041 - 0.034)]^{1} =
0.6390422

E(S2) = 0.6346 x [1 + (0.041 - 0.034)]^{2} =
0.643515495

E(S3) = 0.6346 x [1 + (0.041 - 0.034)]^{3} =
0.648020104

CF0= -£50,000 ($1/£0.6346) = -$78,789.79

C01 = £12,000 ($1/£0.6390422) = $18,778.10

C02 = £36,000 ($1/£0.643515495) = $55,942.71

C03 = £40,000 ($1/£0.648020104) = $61,726.48

NPV = PV of Cash Inflows - PV of Cash Outflows

= [$18,778.10/1.12] + [$55,942.71/1.12^{2}] +
[$61,726.48/1.12^{3}] - $78,789.79

= $16,766.16 + $44,597.19 + $43,935.69 - $78,789.79 = $26,509.25

Hence, Option "B" is correct.

You are analyzing a project with an initial cost of £130,000.
The project is expected to return £20,000 the first year, £50,000
the second year, and £90,000 the third and final year. There is no

(1)A firm undertakes a five-year project that requires an
initial capital investment of $100,000. The project is then
expected to provide cash flow of $12,000 per year for the first two
years, $50,000 in the third and fourth years, and $10,000 in the
fifth year. The project has an end-of-life salvage value of $5,000.
If the discount rate applied to these cash flows is 9.50 percent,
to the nearest dollar, the net present value of this project is
_____?
(2)The...

A.
A project has an initial cost of $57,200 and is expected to
produce cash inflows of $19,800, $27,900, and $45,200 over the next
3 years, respectively. What is the project’s internal rate of
return?
18.92 percent
26.25 percent
16.86 percent
24.63 percent
B.
You are comparing two mutually exclusive projects. Both projects
have an initial cost of $40,000 . Project A has cash inflows of
$21,000 , $18,000 , and $15,000 over the next 3 years,
respectively. Project B...

Winston Hardware is analyzing a proposed project that requires
an initial investment of $39,900 for fixed assets and $9,900 for
net working capital. The project is expected to produce operating
cash flows of $11,400 a year for 4 years. The net working capital
can be recouped at the end of the project. The fixed assets have an
estimated aftertax salvage value of $16,900. Should this project be
accepted if the required rate of return is 13.9 percent? Why or why...

Panelli's is analyzing a project with an initial cost of
$110,000 and cash inflows of $65,000 in year 1 and $74,000 in year
2. This project is an extension of the firm's current operations
and thus is equally as risky as the current firm. The firm uses
only debt and common stock to finance its operations and maintains
a debt-equity ratio of .45. The aftertax cost of debt is 4.8
percent, the cost of equity is 12.7 percent, and the...

Antonio's is analyzing a project with an initial cost of $31,000
and cash inflows of $27,000 a year for 2 years. This project is an
