Course coordinator: Jialong Li Email: [email protected] ACFI2070 S2 2018 Workshop 5 solutions Fundamental questions Question 1: NPV (Problem 3, Chapter 6, Peirson 12ed) A software provider buys blank Bluray DVDs at $550 per hundred and currently uses 2 million DVDs per year. The manager believes that it may be cheaper to make the DVDs rather than buy them. Direct production costs (labour, materials, fuel) are estimated at $2.50 per DVD. The equipment needed would cost $3 million. The equipment should last for 15 years, provided it is overhauled every 5 years at a cost of $250 000 each time. The operation will require additional current assets of $400 000. The company's required rate of return is 12 per cent. Evaluate the proposal. Answer : Consider the differential cash flows for manufacturing versus buying. Assume zero residual value at the end of 15 years. Direct production costs = 2 000 000 $2.50 = $5 000 000 per year. Purchase costs avoided = 2 000 000 ($550/100) = $11 000 000 per year.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
