Question;61.Last month, Lloyd's Systems analyzed the project whose;cash flows are shown below. However, before the decision to accept or reject;the project, the Federal Reserve took actions that changed interest rates and;therefore the firm's WACC. The Fed's action did not affect the forecasted cash;flows. By how much did the change in the WACC affect the project's forecasted;NPV? Note that a project's projected NPV can be negative, in which case it;should be rejected.;Old WACC;10.00%;New WACC;12.50%;Year;0;1;2;3;Cash flows;-$1,000;$410;$410;$410;62.Lasik Vision Inc. recently analyzed the project whose;cash flows are shown below.

These projects are mutually exclusive, equally;risky, and not repeatable. The CEO believes the IRR is the best selection;criterion, while the CFO advocates the NPV. If the decision is made by choosing;the project with the higher IRR rather than the one with the higher NPV, how;much, if any, value will be forgone, i.e., what's the chosen NPV versus the;maximum possible NPV? Note that (1) "true value" is measured by NPV;and (2) under some conditions the choice of IRR vs. NPV will have no effect on;the value gained or lost.;WACC;6.75%;0;1;2;3;4;CFS -$1,100;$550;$600;$100;$100;CFL;-$2,700;$650;$725;$800;$1,400;71.A firm is considering Projects S and L, whose cash flows;are shown below. These projects are mutually exclusive, equally risky, and not;repeatable. The CEO wants to use the IRR criterion, while the CFO favors the;NPV method.

These projects are mutually exclusive, equally risky;and not repeatable. If the decision is made by choosing the project with the;higher IRR, how much value will be forgone? Note that under certain conditions;choosing projects on the basis of the IRR will not cause any value to be lost;because the one with the higher IRR will also have the higher NPV, so no value;will be lost if the IRR method is used.;WACC;15.25%;0;1;2;3;4;CFS -$2,050;$750;$760;$770;$780;CFL;-$4,300;$1,500;$1,518;$1,536;$1,554;73.Moerdyk& Co. is considering Projects S and L, whose;cash flows are shown below.
