12-2 Evaluating projects with  unequal lives Projects S and L are mutually exclusive, and will  be repeated.  If k = 10%, which is better?         Expected Net CFs Year  Project S  Project L   0 (\$100,000) (\$100,000)   1        59,000        33,500   2        59,000        33,500   3        -        33,500   4        -        33,500
12-3 Solving for NPV,  with no repetition Enter CFs into calculator CFLO register for  both projects, and enter I/YR = 10%. NPV S  = \$2,397 NPV L  = \$6,190 Is Project L better? Need replacement chain analysis.

12-5 What is real option analysis? Real options exist when managers can  influence the size and riskiness of a  project’s cash flows by taking different  actions during the project’s life. Real option analysis incorporates  typical NPV budgeting analysis with an  analysis for opportunities resulting from  managers’ decisions.

### What students are saying

• 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.
