Question

Question;23. Hammer;Company proposes to invest \$6 million in a new type of hammer-making equipment.;The fixed costs are \$1.0 million per year. The equipment is expected to last;for five years. The manufacturing cost per hammer is \$1 and the selling price;per hammer is \$6. Calculate the break-even (i.e. NPV = 0) volume per year.;(Ignore taxes.) a. 500,000;units B. 600,000 units c. 100,000;units d. None of;the above 24. Everything;else remaining the same, an increase in fixed costs: I) Increases the;break-even point based on NPV II) Increases the accounting break-even point;III) Decreases the break-even point based on NPV IV) Decreases the accounting;break-even point a.

It is considering the;construction of a deep-sea;oil rig at a cost of \$50 million (I0) and is expected to remain constant. The;price of oil is \$50 /bbl and the extraction costs are \$20 /bbl. The quantity of;oil Q = 200,000 bbl per year forever. The risk-free rate is 10% per year, which;is also the cost of capital (Ignore taxes).

You are;planning to produce a new action figure called "Hillary ". However;you are very uncertain about the demand for the product. If it is a hit, you;will have net cash flows of \$50 million per year for 3 years (starting next;year). If it fails, you will only have net cash flows of \$10 million per year;for 2 years (starting next year). There is an equal chance that it will be a;hit or failure (probability = 50%) You will not know whether it is a hit or a failure;until the first year's cash flows are in. You have to spend \$80 million;immediately for equipment and the rights to produce the figure. If the discount;rate is 10%, calculate the NPV without the abandonment option.

Given the;following net future values for harvesting trees: (one time harvest): If the cost of capital is 15%, calculate the optimal year to;harvest: a. Year 1 b. Year 2 C. Year 3d. Year 4 32. The;Consumer-Mart Company is going to introduce a new consumer product. If brought;to market without research about consumer tastes the firm believes that there;is a 60% chance that the product will be successful. If successful, the project;has a NPV = \$500,000. If the product is a failure (40%) and withdrawn from the;market, then NPV = -\$100,000. A consumer survey will cost \$60,000 and delay the;introduction by one year. If the survey is successful, then there is an 80%;chance of consumer acceptance, in which case the NPV = \$500,000. If, on the;other hand the survey is a failure, then NPV = -\$100,000. The discount rate is;10%. By how much does the marketing survey change the expected net present;value of the project? (Approximately) A. Increase the NPV by \$25,455 b. Decrease;the NPV by \$5950 c. Decrease;the NPV by \$8955 d. Decrease;the NPV by \$25,455 52;="msonormal">
