2-1 CHAPTER 2 Present Values, the Objectives of the Firm, and Corporate Governance Answers to Practice Questions 9. The face value of the treasury security is $1,000. If this security earns 5%, then in one year we will receive $1,050. Thus: NPV = C 0 + [C 1 /(1 + r)] = $1000 + ($1050/1.05) = 0 This is not a surprising result because 5% is the opportunity cost of capital, i.e., 5% is the return available in the capital market. If any investment earns a rate of return equal to the opportunity cost of capital, the NPV of that investment is zero. 10. NPV = $1,300,000 + ($1,500,000/1.10) = +$63,636 Since the NPV is positive, you would construct the motel. Alternatively, we can compute r as follows: r = ($1,500,000/$1,300,000) – 1 = 0.1538 = 15.38% Since the rate of return is greater than the cost of capital, you would construct the motel. 11.
