Your estimate that the investments will produce the followingnet cash flows:Year Project A Project B1 $5,000,000 $20,000,0002 $10,000,000 $10,000,0003 $20,000,000 $6,000,000a) What are the two projects' net present values, assuming a cost of capital of 5%, 10% and 15%?b) What are the two projects' IRRs at these same costs of capital?______________________________________________________________________Question 13-5:How is it possible for an employee stock option to be valuable even if thefirm's stock price fails to meet shareholder's expectations?Question 15-8The Rivoli company has no debt outstanding, and its financial position is givenby the following data:Assets (book=market): $3,000,000EBIT $500,000Cost of equity, rs = 10%Stock price, P0= $15Shares outstanding, no = 200,000Tax rate, T (federal-plus-state) 40%The firm is considering selling bonds and simultaneously repurchasing some of itsstock. If it moves into a capital structure with 30% debt based on market values,its cost of equity, rs will increase to 11% to reflect the increased risk. Bonds canbe sold at a cost, rd, of 7%.
