1. Find the NPV and PI of a project that costs $1,500 and returns $800 in year one and $850 in year two. Assume the project?s cost of capital is 8 percent. 5. For the following projects, compute NPV, IRR, MIRR, profitability index, and payback. If these projects are mutually exclusive, which one(s) should be done? If they are independent, which one(s) should be undertaken? i.

AQ&Q has EBIT of $2 million, total assets of $10 million, stockholders? equity of $4 million, and pretax interest expense of 10 percent. a. What is AQ&Q?s indifference level of EBIT? b. Given its current situation, might it benefit from increasing or decreasing its use of debt? Explain. c. Suppose we are told AQ&Q?s average tax rate is 40 percent. How does this affect your answers to (a) and (b)? 9. The following are balance sheets for the Genatron Manufacturing Corporation for the years 2010 and 2011: BALANCE SHEET 2010 2011 Cash $50,000 $40,000 Accounts receivable 200,000 260,000 Inventory 450,000 500,000 Total current assets 700,000 800,000 Fixed assets (net) 300,000 400,000 Total assets $1,000,000 $1,200,000 Bank loan, 10% $ 90,000 $ 90,000 Accounts payable 130,000 170,000 Accruals 50,000 70,000 Total current liabilities $270,000 $330,000 Long-term debt, 12% 300,000 400,000 Common stock, $10 par 300,000 300,000 Capital surplus 50,000 50,000 Retained earnings 80,000 120,000 Total liabilities and equity $1,000,000 $1,200,000 a. Calculate the weighted average cost of capital based on book value weights. Assume an after-tax cost of new debt of 8.63 percent and a cost of common equity of 16.5 percent. b. The current market value of Genatron?s long-term debt is $350,000. The common stock price is $20 per share and there are 30,000 shares outstanding. Calculate the WACC using market value weights and the component capital costs in (a). c. Recalculate the WACC based on both book value and market value weights assuming that the before-tax cost of debt will be 18 percent, the company is in the 40 percent income tax bracket, and the after-tax cost of common equity capital is 21 percent.
