FIN 534 Week 8 Homework Set 4

Use the following information for Questions 1 through 5:
Assume you are presented with the following mutually exclusive investments whose expected net cash
flows are as follows:
EXPECTED NET CASH FLOWS:
Year Project A Project B
0 −\$400 −\$650
1 −528 210
2 −219 210
3 −150 210
4 1,100 210
5 820 210
6 990 210
7 −325 210
1. Construct NPV profiles for Projects A and B.
2. What is each project’s IRR?
3. If each project’s cost of capital were 10%, which project, if either, should be selected? If the cost
of capital were 17%, what would be the proper choice?
4. What is each project’s MIRR at the cost of capital of 10%? At 17%? (Hint: Consider Period 7 as
the end of Project B’s life.)
5. What is the crossover rate, and what is its significance?
Use the following information for Questions 6 through 8:
The staff of Porter Manufacturing has estimated the following net after-tax cash flows and probabilities for
a new manufacturing process:
Line 0 gives the cost of the process, Lines 1 through 5 give operating cash flows, and Line 5* contains the
estimated salvage values. Porter’s cost of capital for an average-risk project is 10%.
Net After-Tax Cash Flows
Year
0 −\$100,000 −\$100,000 −\$100,000
1 20,000 30,000 40,000
2 20,000 30,000 40,000
3 20,000 30,000 40,000
4 20,000 30,000 40,000
5 20,000 30,000 40,000
5* 0 20,000 30,000
6. Assume that the project has average risk. Find the project’s expected NPV. (Hint: Use expected
values for the net cash flow in each year.)
7. Find the best-case and worst-case NPVs. What is the probability of occurrence of the worst case
if the cash flows are perfectly dependent (perfectly positively correlated) over time
8. Assume that all the cash flows are perfectly positively correlated. That is, assume there are only
three possible cash flow streams over time—the worst case, the...
