Question

A project requires an initial investment of $950,000 depreciated straight-line to $0 in 10 years. The investment is expected to generate annual sales of $600,000 with annual costs of $250,000 for 10 years. Assume a tax rate of 30% and the NPV of $300,000. What is a discount rate of the project?

Answer #1

Initial Investment = $950,000

Salvage Value = $0

Useful Life = 10 years

Annual Depreciation = (Initial Investment - Salvage Value) /
Useful Life

Annual Depreciation = ($950,000 - $0) / 10

Annual Depreciation = $95,000

Annual Sales = $600,000

Annual Costs = $250,000

Annual OCF = (Annual Sales - Annual Costs) * (1 - Tax Rate) +
Tax Rate * Annual Depreciation

Annual OCF = ($600,000 - $250,000) * (1 - 0.30) + 0.30 *
$95,000

Annual OCF = $350,000 * 0.70 + 0.30 * $95,000

Annual OCF = $273,500

Let Discount Rate be i%

Net Present Value = - Initial Investment + Annual OCF * PVA of
$1 (Discount Rate, Useful Life)

$300,000 = -$950,000 + $273,500 * PVA of $1 (i%, 10)

$1,250,000 = $273,500 * PVA of $1 (i%, 10)

PVA of $1 (i%, 10) = 4.57084

Using table values or financial calculator, i = 17.53%

Discount Rate = 17.53%

So, the discount rate of the project is 17.53% or 18%

A project requires an initial investment of $2,400,000
depreciated straight-line to $0 in 10 years. The investment is
expected to generate annual sales of $700,000 with annual costs of
$450,000 for 20 years. Assume a tax rate of 30% and a discount rate
of 10%. What is the NPV of the project?

A project requires an initial investment in equipment of
$100,000. The project is expected to produce sales revenues of
$120,000 for three years. Manufacturing costs are estimated to be
60% of the revenues. The assets are depreciated using straight-line
depreciation. At the end of the project, the firm can sell the
equipment for $10,000. The corporate tax rate is 30% and the cost
of capital is 15%. What would the NPV if the discount rate were
higher by 10% (10%...

A project cost $1 initial million investment and would
depreciate straight line to 0 in 10 years. Besides depreciation,
the variable cost is 60% of sales and fixed cost is $100,000 per
year. Assume the income tax of 21%. Which BE in accounting is
500,000.
If the discount rate is 8%, what is the NPV break even of
sales?

You are considering a new five-year project that requires an
initial fixed asset investment of $5 million. The fixed asset will
be depreciated straight-line to zero over its five-year tax life,
after which time it will be worthless. The project is estimated to
generate $4.5 million in annual sales, with costs of $2 million.
Assume the tax rate is 30 percent and the required return on the
project is 15 percent.
