Question

A firm has a WACC of 8% and is deciding between two mutually exclusive projects. Project A has an initial investment of $63. The additional cash flows for project A are: year 1 = $20, year 2 = $39, year 3 = $67. Project B has an initial investment of $73.The cash flows for project B are: year 1 = $60, year 2 = $45, year 3 = $32.

a. What is the payback for project A? (Show your answer to 2 decimals.)

b. What is the
payback for project B? (Show your answer to 2
decimals.)

c. Which project
is preferred based on the payback method?

d. What is the NPV
for project A? (2 decimals)

e. What is the NPV for project B? (2 decimals)

f. Which Project
should be accepted? (Project A, Project B, Project A & B,
Neither A or B)

Answer #1

=2+(63-20-39)/67 =2.06 years

b. Payback period formula = Years before recovery + Cost not
covered in that year/ Cash flow for that year

=1+(73-60)/45 =1.29 years

c. Project B should be accepted based on payback method.

d. NPV of Project A =PV of Cash Flows-Initial Investment
=20/1.08+39/1.08^2+67/1.08^3-63 =42.14

e. NPV of Project B =PV of Cash Flows-Initial Investment
=60/1.08+45/1.08^2+32/1.08^3-73 =46.54

f. Project B should be accepted as NPV is higher

A firm must choose between two mutually exclusive projects, A
& B. Project A has an initial cost of $11000. Its projected net
cash flows are $900, $2000, $3000, $4000, and $5000 at the end of
years 1 through 5, respectively. Project B has an initial cost of
$15000, and its projected net cash flows are $7000, $5000, $3000,
$2000, and $1000 at the end of years 1 through 5, respectively. If

A firm needs to decide between two mutually exclusive projects.
Project Alpha requires an initial investment of $37,000 today and
is expected to generate cash flows of $31,000 for the next 4 years.
Project Beta requires an initial investment of $92,000 and is
expected to generate cash flows of $36,400 for the next 8 years.
The cost of capital is 10%. The projects can be repeated with no
change in cash flows. What is the NPV of the project that...
