Oliver Stone and Rock Company uses a process;of capital rationing in its decision making. The firm?s cost of capital is 12;percent. It will invest only $80,000 this year.

Project C calls for the purchase of a coolant recovery system.;Project H represents an investment in a heat recovery system.;The firm wishes to use a net present value profile in comparing the projects.;The investment and cash flow patterns are as follows;Project C ($25,000 Investment);Project H ($25,000 investment);Year;Cash Flow;Year;Cash Flow;1..........................;$ 6,000;1...............................;$20,000;2..........................;7,000;2...............................;6,000;3..........................;9,000;3...............................;5,000;4..........................;13,000;a. Determine the net present value of the;projects based on a zero discount rate.;b. Determine the net present value of the;projects based on a 9 percent discount rate.;c. The internal rate of return on Project C;is 13.01 percent, and the internal rate of return on Project H is 15.68;percent. Graph a net present value profile for the two investments similar to;Figure 12-3. (Use a scale up to $10,000 on the vertical axis, with $2,000;increments. Use a scale up to 20 percent on the horizontal axis, with;5 percent increments.);d. If the two projects are not mutually;exclusive, what would your acceptance or rejection decision be if the cost of;capital (discount rate) is 8 percent? (Use the net present value profile for;your decision, no actual numbers are necessary.);e. If the two projects are mutually exclusive;(the selection of one precludes the selection of the other), what would be your;decision if the cost of capital is (1) 5 percent;(2) 13 percent, (3) 19 percent? Use the net present value profile for your;answer.;23. Software Systems is considering an;investment of $20,000, which produces the following inflows;Year;Cash Flow;1................;$11,000;2................;9,000;3................;5,800;You;are going to use the net present value profile to approximate the value for the;internal rate of return.

Determine the net present value of the;project based on a 20 percent discount rate;(it will be negative).;d. Draw a net present value profile for the;investment. (Use a scale up to $6,000 on the vertical axis, with $2,000;increments. Use a scale up to 20 percent on the horizontal axis, with 5 percent;increments.) Observe the discount rate at which the net present value is zero.;This is an approximation of the internal rate of return on the project.;e. Actually compute the internal rate of;return based on the interpolation procedure presented in this chapter. Compare;your answers in parts d and e.;24. Howell Magnetics Corporation is going to;purchase an asset for $400,000 that will produce $180,000 per year for the next;four years in earnings before depreciation and taxes. The asset will be;depreciated using the three-year MACRS depreciation schedule in Table 12-9.;(This represents four years of depreciation based on the half-year convention.);The firm is in a 34 percent tax bracket. Fill in the schedule below for the;next four years. (You need to first determine annual depreciation.);Earnings;before depreciation and taxes;Depreciation;Earnings before taxes;Taxes;Earnings after taxes;+ Depreciation;Cash;flow;25. Assume $80,000 is going to be invested in;each of the following assets. Using Tables 12-8 and 12-9, indicate the dollar;amount of the first year?s depreciation.;a. Computers;b. Petroleum refining product;c. Office furniture;d. Pipeline distribution;26. The Keystone Corporation will purchase an;asset that qualifies for three-year MACRS depreciation. The cost is $60,000 and;the asset will provide the following stream of earnings before depreciation and;taxes for the next four years;Year 1.................. $27,000;Year 2.................. 30,000;Year 3.................. 23,000;Year 4.................. 15,000;The firm is in a 36;percent tax bracket and has an 11 percent cost of capital. Should it purchase;the asset?;27. Oregon Forest Products will acquire new;equipment that falls under the five-year MACRS category. The cost is $300,000.;If the equipment is purchased, the following earnings before depreciation and;taxes will be generated for the next six years.;Year 1..................... $112,000;Year 2..................... 105,000;Year 3..................... 82,000;Year 4..................... 53,000;Year 5..................... 37,000;Year 6..................... 32,000;The firm is in a 30;percent tax bracket and has a 14 percent cost of capital. Should Oregon Forest;Products purchase the equipment? Use the net present value method.;28. The Thorpe Corporation is considering the;purchase of manufacturing equipment with a 10-year midpoint in its asset;depreciation range (ADR). Carefully refer to Table 12-8 to determine in what;depreciation category the asset falls. (Hint: It is not 10 years.) The asset;will cost $80,000, and it will produce earnings before depreciation and taxes;of $28,000 per year for three years, and then $12,000 a year for seven more;years. The firm has a tax rate of 34 percent. With a cost of capital of 12;percent, should it purchase the asset? Use the net present value method. In;doing your analysis, if you have years in which there is no depreciation;merely enter a zero for depreciation.
