Unformatted text preview: (Net present value, profitability index, and internal rate of return calculations) You are considering two independent projects, project A and project B. The initial cash outlay associated with project A is $50,000 and the initial cash outlay associated with project B is $70,000. The required rate of return on both projects is 12 percent. The expected annual free cash flows from each project are as follows: Year Project A Project B50,00070,000 1 12,000 13,000 2 12,000 13,000 3 12,000 13,000 4 12,000 13,000 5 12,000 13,000 6 12,000 13,000 Calculate the NPV, PI, and IRR for each project and indicate if the project should be accepted.
