FINS 1613 Tutorial Answers 1 SCHOOL OF BANKING AND FINANCE FINS1613 BUSINESS FINANCE Semester 2 2010 TUTORIAL ANSWERS WEEK 6 –Capital Budgeting Applications I Please note that some answers are exact when rounded to 2 or 3 decimal places because of the use of PV tables rather than calculators. Multiple-choice Questions 1. Project A and Project B are mutually exclusive projects with equal risk. Project A has an internal rate of return of 12%, while Project B has an internal rate of return of 15%. The two projects have the same net present value when the discount rate 7%. (In other words, the "crossover rate" is 7%.) Assume each project has an initial cash outflow followed by a series of inflows. Which of the following statements is most correct? a. If the discount rate is 10%, each project will have a positive NPV. b. If the discount rate is 6%, Project B has a higher NPV than Project A. c. If the discount rate is 13%, Project B has a higher NPV than Project A. d. Statements a and b are correct. e. Statements a and c are correct. Answer is e. NPV vs IRR –theory 0% 1% 2% 3% 4% 5% 6% 7% 8% 9% 10% 11% 12% 13% 14% 15% 16% Project A Project B Since both projects have an IRR greater than the 10% discount rate, both will have a positive NPV. Therefore, statement a is true. At 6%, the cost of capital is less than the crossover rate and Project

FINS 1613 Tutorial Answers 2 A has a higher NPV than B. Therefore, statement b is false. If the cost of capital is 13%, then the cost of capital is greater than the crossover rate and B would have a higher NPV than A (NPV of A is negative at 13%). Therefore, statement c is true. Since statements a and c are both true, the correct choice is statement e. 2. Your company is choosing between the following non-repeatable, equally risky, mutually exclusive projects with the cash flows shown below. Your cost of capital is 10%. How much value will your company sacrifice if it selects the project with the higher IRR? Project 0 1 2 3 4 5 A -1,000 500 500 500 B -2,000 668.76 668.76 668.76 668.76 668.76 a. $243.43 b. $291.69 c. $332.50 d. $481.15 e. $535.13 Answer is b.
