Question

I am attaching a document.  The 3 questions for the case start on

Page 11.  I would like all three questions answered.

Page 1 of 18 ATLANTA KESTREL’S CAPITAL BUDGETING DECISION ABSTRACT This case examines a capital budgeting decision context where financial and nonfinancial information both need to be considered. The nonfinancial and financial information—Net Present Value (NPV), Internal Rate of Return (IRR), and payback period calculations—do not all lead to a clear decision path on which of three potential investment options should be pursued. The case also introduces an analytical hierarchy process (AHP) decision-making tool that allows students to simultaneously weight the quantitative and qualitative information, thereby aiding them to make a “better” capital investment decision. Key words: capital budgeting; analytical hierarchy process; capital investments; decision-making

Page 2 of 18 ATLANTA KESTREL’S CAPITAL BUDGETING DECISION Introduction “I’m still not sure what the best option is, but I think we’re making good progress,” Mike Mayhew said to the other seven members of the executive staff. “I feel confident that we have eliminated all of the unacceptable projects, which either have a negative NPV or that are clearly at odds with the Kestrels’ new strategy.” Mike paused to gather his thoughts before continuing, and then he said, “It’s going to be tough to decide among the remaining three options. Let’s all consider the three options individually, analyze the options using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) worksheet provided by Casey Potts, our choice coach, and then meet again in one week to make a final decision.” As everyone stood up and walked to the front of the room to put their hands together and say the team cheer, Mike said, “Remember, the AHP is meant to help close the uncertainty gap, but we’ll still need to spend a considerable amount of time justifying our rankings.” After everyone huddled together in a circle, and put their right hand in the center of the circle, they simultaneously chanted the team’s cheer: Who are we? We are the Kestrels And this is what we do: We dribble, we pass it, We fly to the basket, And then we dunk on you! Caaah! Caaaah!
