FIN 534 – Homework Set #4

Directions: Answer the following questions on a separate document. Explain how you reached the answer or show your work if a mathematical calculation is needed, or both. Submit your assignment using the assignment link in the course shell. This homework assignment is worth 100 points.

Use the following information for Questions 1 through 3:

Assume you are presented with the following mutually exclusive investments whose expected net cash flows are as follows:

 EXPECTED NET CASH FLOWS: Year Project A Project B 0 −\$400 −\$650 1 −528 210 2 −219 210 3 −150 210 4 1,100 210 5 820 210 6 990 210 7 −325 210

1.(a) What is each project’s IRR?

(b)If each project’s cost of capital were 10%, which project, if either, should be selected? If the cost of capital were 17%, what would be the proper choice?

2.(a) What is each project’s MIRR at the cost of capital of 10%? At 17%? (Hint: Consider Period 7 as the end of Project B’s life.)

3.What is the crossover rate, and what is its significance?

FIN 534 – Homework Set #4

Use the following information for Question 4:

The staff of Porter Manufacturing has estimated the following net after-tax cash flows and probabilities for a new manufacturing process:

Line 0 gives the cost of the process, Lines 1 through 5 give operating cash flows, and Line 5* contains the estimated salvage values. Porter’s cost of capital for an average-risk project is 10%.

 Net After-Tax Cash Flows Year P = 0.2 P = 0.6 P = 0.2 0 −\$100,000 −\$100,000 −\$100,000 1 20,000 30,000 40,000 2 20,000 30,000 40,000 3 20,000 30,000 40,000 4 20,000 30,000 40,000 5 20,000 30,000 40,000 5* 0 20,000 30,000

4.Assume that the project has average risk. Find the project’s expected NPV. (Hint: Use expected values for the net cash flow in each year.)
