$69,856.82

$67,565.33

$60,174.68

$93,322.15

Answer #1

WACC = Cost of Debt * Weight of Debt + Cost of Equity * Weight of Equity

= [After Tax Cost of Debt * Weight of Debt ] + (Cost of Equity * Weight of Equity )

= [ 5.1% * 30% ] + ( 13.1% * 70%)

= 10.7%

Net Present Value = Present Value of Cash Inflows -Present Value of Cash Outflows

= [ $ 516,000 * 1/( 1.107) ^ 1 + $ 516,000 * 1/( 1.107) ^ 2 + $ 516,000 * 1/( 1.107) ^ 3 ] - $ 1,200,000

= $ 1,267,565.33 - $ 1,200,000

= $ 67,565.33

Hence the correct answer is **$ 67,565.33**
