Question

The following are workout problems from the text and I need to know if I am doing them correctly. The first one I am not sure if my results are wrong due to rounding. 1). Briarcrest Condiments is a spice-making firm. Recently, it developed a new process for producing spices. The process requires new machinery that would cost \$2,109,194. have a life of five years, and would produce the cash flows shown in the following table. Year Cash Flow 1 \$513,316 2 -225,749 3 1,000,114 4 849,873 5 758,037 What is the NPV if the discount rate is 13.74 percent? (Enter negative amounts using negative sign e.g. -45.25. Round answer to 2 decimal places, e.g. 15.25.) Here is my attempt to solve the problem: Cost of equipment-\$2,109,194 Length of project= n=5 years Required rate of return= k=13.74% NPV= =-\$2,109,194+513,316-225,749+1,000,114+849,873+758,037 (1.1374)? (1.1374)? (1.1374)? (1.1374) (1.1374) =-\$2,109,194+451,306.49-174,512.21+679,702.32+507,811.30+398,233.25= =-246?671 or -24.67 (both were marked incorrect) =-246?671 or -24.67 (This is what I came up with the third time) (1.1374)?=1.2936 (1.1374)?=1.4714 (1.1374) 4=1.6736 (1.1374) 5=1.9035 Next problem: Archer Daniels Midland Company is considering buying a new farm that it plans to operate for 10 years. The farm will require an initial investment of \$12.00 million. This investment will consist of \$2.30 million for land and \$9.70 million for trucks and other equipment. The land, all trucks, and all other equipment is expected to be sold at the end of 10 years at a price of \$5.21 million, \$2.40 million above book value. The farm is expected to produce revenue of \$2.08 million each year, and annual cash flow from operations equals \$1.98 million. The marginal tax rate is 35 percent, and the appropriate discount rate is 9 percent. Calculate the NPV of this investment. (Round intermediate calculations and final answer to 2 decimal places, e.g. 15.25.) NPV=\$ Should this project be accepted or rejected?
