1 MGTB09H3 – Principles of Finance Fall 2010 Additional self ­ study exercises topic 5 – Capital budgeting answers at the end Questions Question 1 (Capital Budgeting) Rick Lee and Jane Smith are considering building a new bottling plant to meet expected future demand for their new line of tropical coolers. They are considering putting it on a plot of land they have owned for three years. They are analyzing the idea and comparing it to some others. Rick says, “Jane when we do this analysis, we should put in an amount for the cost of the land equal to what we paid for it. After all it did cost us a pretty penny.” Jane retorts, “No, I do not care how much it cost – we have already paid for it. It is what they call a sunk cost. The cost of land shouldn’t be considered.” As financial advisor to Lee and Smith, what do you say? Question 2 (Capital Budgeting) Jocelyn Chen & Bosco Lau Toys has developed a new children’s toy.
