Question

Projects S and L are equally risky, mutually exclusive, and have normal cash flows. Project S has an IRR of 15%, while Project L's IRR is 12%. The two projects have the same NPV when the WACC is 7%. Which of the following statements is CORRECT (Hint: Draw NPV profiles of Projects S and L on the same graph)?;A. If the WACC is 10%, both projects will have a negative NPV.;B. If the WACC is 6%, Project S will have the higher NPV.;C. If the WACC is 13%, Project S will have the lower NPV.;D. Project S's NPV is more sensitive to change in WACC than Project L's.;E. If the WACC is 10%, both projects will have positive NPVs.;You are evaluating the acquisition of a new ski machine. Its price is \$200,000, and it costs \$40,000 to install. It falls into the MACRS 3-year class. The machine will save the firm's operating costs by \$125,000 per year and require a \$10,000 increase in inventory when it is installed. It will be used for 4 years and then sold for \$25,000. Your firm's tax rate is 40%, and the project's cost of capital is 10% (MACRS depreciation schedule for a 3-year class asset is: 33%, 45%, 15%, and 7%).;What is the initial net investment outlay in Year 0?;A. \$230,000;B. \$200,000;C. \$240,000;D. \$250,000;E. \$210,000;What is the after-tax cash flow (both operating and non-operating) in Year 4? use same information that was given for the previous question about the new ski machine;A. \$106,720;B. \$91,720;C. \$141,720;D. \$81,720;E. \$116,720
