Unformatted text preview: FNCE 3010 (Durham). HW18 — capital budgeting 3 1. What is the main difference between sensitivity analysis and scenario analysis? Solution: With a scenario analysis, changes in several variables at a time are considered. With a sensitivity analysis, only a single variable is changed. 2. A project has the following estimated data: price = $70 per unit; variable costs = $37 per unit; fixed costs = $6,000; required return = 15 percent; initial investment = $12,000; life = four years. Use straightline depreciation over four years, and assume the project has no salvage value. Assume the tax rate is 34%. What is the accounting breakeven quantity? The cash breakeven quantity (ignoring the depreciation tax shield)? The financial breakeven quantity? Solution: Accounting breakeven is Q = (FC + D) / (P  VC) = (6000 + 3000) / (70  37) = 273 Cash breakeven is: Q = FC / (P  VC) = 6000 / (70  37) = 182 To solve for the financial breakeven, we first solve for the required OCF. Use your calculator with PV=12000, n=4, r=15%, FV=0. You should get PMT =your calculator with PV=12000, n=4, r=15%, FV=0....
