1)) Show him how to adapt the IRR rule to choose the best project
c) Show him which project has the higher NPV, Note: A and B are mutually exclusive Capital Budgeting Decisions 1. The Calgary Cabinet Company Ltd. anticipates an increase in demand for one of its products.
In order to meet this demand, a new cutting and ﬁnishing machine costing $10,000 must be
purchased. The machine will last ﬁve years and it will be sold at the beginning of the sixth year. Based on forecast sales levels, it is expected to generate an increase in net operating income,
before taxes, ofr$3,500 per year for ﬁve years. It is anticipated that when the machine is sold
for scrap, the CCA pool will still have assets in it. The capital cost rate applicable for CCA
calculations 'is 20%. Taxes are at a 40% rate; the salvage value is expected to be equal to the undepreciated capital cost of capital. Should Calgary Cabinet buy this new machine? Leacock Co is considering replacing their manual bookkeeping machines (NCR) with an IBM.
Leacock’s three NCRs were purchased 5 years ago for $10,000 each. Their life expectancy was
10 years with a salvage value of nothing. Current resale value is $3,000 each. The cost of the
IBM is $50,000 and it will have a zero disposal value in 5 years. Total costs of operating the
IBM is $46,500 per year and operating cost for each of the NCRs is $20,000. Tax rate is 40%;
Leacock’s cost of capital is 12% and depreciation is assumed to be a straight line. Should Leacock replace the machine? (Find the NPV, etc.) Myke Tyson Inc. is considering the purchase of a new ‘earcutting’ machine. This machine will
reduce manufacturing costs by $6,000 annually. The new machine will be in CCA class 8
(d=20%). The ﬁrm expects to sell the machine at the end of its 5year life for $10,000. The
ﬁrm also expects to be able to reduce net working capital by $18,000 when the machine is
installed. The ﬁrm’s marginal tax rate is 40% and it uses a 12% cost of capital to evaluate projects of this nature. If the machine costs $60,000, what is the NPV of the project? Clean Inc. has several detergent brands on the market. A recent market study costing $200,000,
indicated that the company should launch a new type of detergent called “Bright Whites”
(BW). The company has an empty building to house the new plant if the project proceeds.
Otherwise, the building can be rented out at $150,000 per year, payable at the beginning of
each year. Introducing BW will result in sales erosion of existing product lines estimated at
$90,000 per year. New machinery worth $4 million would be required for this facility and the
applicable CCA rate is 20%. The following table summarizes estimates of sales and production costs for “Bright Whites” for the next 10 cars. (In $million) _ Variable Cost 1st to inclusive 10 inclusive 7"" to inclusive Additional working capital of $0.5 million will also be required at the start of this project.
Salvage value on the machinery is expected to be $0.9 million. Clean Inc’s tax rate is 40%
and its minimum required return is 10%. Should Clean Inc. introduce “Bright Writes”?. Show all workings. 5. The Borstal Company has to choose between two machines which do the same job but have different life spans. The two machines have the following costs: —

stock? 4. If you are holding a stock which is currently in equilibrium and the required return on the stock
is 15% when the retum on the average asset is 10%, what will be the percentage change in the return of the stock if the return on the average asset increases by 30% and the stock has a beta
of2? 5. You believe that there is a 40 percent chance that stock A will decline by 10% and a 60 percent
chance that it will rise by 20%. Similarly, there is a 30% chance that Stock B will decline by
10% and a 70% chance that it will rise by 20%. The correlation coefficient between the two
stocks is 0.7. Calculate the expected return, the variance, and the standard deviation for each stock. Now calculate the covariance between their returns. 6. The standard deviation of the rate of return for Casper Products is 26%, while that for Doom
industries is 12%. If the correlation between their returns is 0.83, what is the standard
deviation of a portfolio composed of 20% of Casper and the remainder of Doom common stock? 7. The expected returns of four shares are presented below together with their corresponding E 13.0% 0.7

market index is 12% and that on the tBill is 5%. Can you create a portfolio with a [3 of 0.8.
What is the expected return of this portfolio? Cost of Capital 1. Ace Company currently has a capital structure composed only of mortgage bonds with a 10%
coupon and common share equity. It has never issued preferred shares. Current liabilities are
insigniﬁcant. Total assets at the most recent ﬁscal yearend were $l8 million and the ﬁrm’s total debt to asset ratio is 33%, which is considered optimal. The ﬁrm is considering investment projects requiring ﬁnancing of $1,200,000. The possible sources are as follows: D_eb_t; Could be issued today at a 12% coupon rate with a tenntomaturity of
10 years. Preferred: Could be issued today at a dividend rate of 7% and with underwriting fees
equivalent to I year’s dividend payment per $50 per value share. Common: New shares could be issued to net the ﬁrm 95% of the market price of common
shares, currently trading at $37.50. The ﬁnn’s annual dividend of $3.00 has not
changed since it was set 4 years ago. However, management feels that new
investments to be undertaken in ﬁxture years will allow an increase in annual
dividends at a rate of 5% per year. This increase is not expected to occur until
after the current dividend payment. The ﬁrm’s tax rate is 40% and it expects to have $424,000 available for asset expansion from
internally generated sources.

external equity? b) What is the marginal cost of capitalf‘k” for the company? 2. Moquin Mouldings Inc. is a manufacturer of aluminum window frames. The firm is planning
to expand its production facilities and this will require an investment of $2.6 million. Having
been asked by the president to determine the ﬁrm’s weighted average cost of capital, you have assembled the following information for your calculations: Present Ca  ital Structure Mortae Bonds (8% cou on $5,000,000 Preferred Stock (7% dividend) $2,000,000 Common Stock ($10 ar value) $5,000,000 Retained Eamins $2,000,000 A a) New 10 year bonds, with a face value of $1000 and a coupon rate of 10%, can be sold to net the company $1000. b) New preferred stock, with a par value of $60 and paying a dividend of 10%, can be sold at a par value of $60 per share but the ﬁrm will incur ﬂoatation costs of $4 per share. 0) New common stock can be sold to net the ﬁrm $30 per share. Moquin common stock is
presently trading on the market at $33 with a price/earnings ratio of 11. Earnings and
dividends have been growing steadily over the past ﬁve years at a rate of 6% per year and
this trend is expected to continue. The ﬁrm has adopted a payout ratio of 50% as its dividend policy. Moquin considers its present capital structure to be optimal. There will be a $750,000 in retained earnings available for this expansion and the ﬁrm’s taxation rate is 40%.
a) What is the marginal or incremental cost of new debt, new preferred stock, new common stock and retained earnings? b) What is the ﬁrm’s weighted average ecst of marginal or incremental capital for 2004, if
it decides to raise the new capital in proportions equivalent to its present capital
structure, but within the limits of the due retained earnings which will be available for this expansion. Financial Leverage 1. Collins Electronics Ltd is considering additional ﬁnancing of $20,000. They currently have
$100,000 of 6% bonds and 10,000 common shares outstanding. The ﬁrm can obtain the ﬁnancing
