Question

Question;(10?10) Capital Budgeting MethodsProject S has a cost of \$10,000 and is expected to produce benefits (cash flows) of \$3,000 per year for 5 years. Project L costs \$25,000 and is expected to produce cash flows of \$7,400 per year for 5 years. Calculate the two projects' NPVs, IRRs, MIRRs, and PIs, assuming a cost of capital of 12%. Which project would be selected, assuming they are mutually exclusive, using each ranking method? Which should actually be selected?Inputsr12%Initial CostTimeProject SProject L0-\$10,000-\$25,000Project SNPVIRRMIRRPI\$814.3315.24%13.77%1.081Cash Flows1\$3,000\$7,4002\$3,000\$7,4003\$3,000\$7,4004\$3,000\$7,400Project L\$1,675.3414.67%13.46%1.0675\$3,000\$7,400Initial CostYearProj S012345-100002678.571428572391.581632652135.340743441906.554235211702.28056716Proj L-250006607.14295899.23475267.17384702.83384198.9587Which Project is to be selected?Using NPV, Project S wins with 814.33 vs 1,675.34Using IRR, Project S also wins with 15.24% vs 14.67%Using MIRR, Project S also wins with 13.77% vs 13.46%Using PI, again, project S wins with 1.081 vs 1.067Overall, although project L has an NPV higher than project S, in both IRR and MIRR, S is higher. PI is also smaller for project S, so I would choose S over L(10?17) Unequal LivesThe Perez Company has the opportunity to invest in one of two mutually exclusive machines that will produce a product it will need for the foreseeable future. Machine A costs \$10 million but realizes after -tax inflows of \$4 million per year for 4 years.After 4 years, the machine must be replaced. Machine B costs \$15 million and realizes after-tax inflows of \$3.5 million per year for 8 years, after which it must be replaced. Assume that machine prices are not expected to rise because inflation will be offset by cheaper components used in the machines. The cost of capital is 10%. By how much would the value of the company increase if it accepted the better machine?What is the equivalent annual annuity for each machine?Unequal LivesInputsr10%Initial CostTimeMachine A-1Machine A-2Sum CFs0NPVA-1EFFAMachine BNPVEFFBAnalysisCash Flows1234NPVA-1,A-25678Multiple Rates of ReturnCOC8%Initial CostTimeProjectPVNPVIRRCash Flows02\$4.40\$0-\$4a.
