ORIE 451/551 Homework #2 Due February 8, 2008 1. Consider the four mutually exclusive projects given below. Project Investment at Time Zero IRR A $2,000 45% B $2,500 40% C $3,000 35% D $3,500 30% The service life for all the four projects is the same and investment is required only at time zero. Also, IRR(B-A) = 17%, IRR(A-D) = 15%, IRR(D-C) = 10%, IRR(B-C) = 20%. Which project would you prefer at a MARR of 13%? Compare A to the DNA. Since IRR(A) > 13%, A wins and is the new defender. Compare B to A. Since IRR(B-A) > 13%, B wins and is the new defender. Compare C to B. Since IRR(C-B) = IRR(B-C) > 13%, C wins and is the new defender. Compare D to C. Since IRR(D-C) < 13%, D loses and C is the winner. Select C.
