You reckon that it will produce an inflow after operating costs of $170,000 a year for 10 years. The opportunity cost of capital is 14%, (a) what is the NPV of the factory? (b) What will the factory be worth at the end of five years? 2. (BM) Siegfried Basset is 65 years of age and has a life expectancy of 12 years. He wishes to invest $20,000 in an annuity that will make a level payment at the end of each of the next 12 years. If the interest rate is 8%, what income can Mr. Basset expect to receive each year? 3. (BM) An oil well now produces 100,000 barrels per year. The well will produce for 18 years more, but production will decline by 4% per year. Oil prices, however, will increase by 2% per year. The discount rate is 8%.
