# Problem 13-16 Basic Net Present Value Analysis Given: Renfree Mines, Inc.

, owns the mining rights to a large tract of land in a mountainous area. The tract contains a mineral deposit that the company believes might be commercially attractive to mine and sell. An engineering and cost analysis has been made, and it is expected that the following cash flows would be associated with opening and operating a mine in the area: Cost of equipment required Net annual cash receipts Working capital required Cost of road repairs in three years Salvage value of equipment in five years \$850,000 \$230,000 *** \$100,000 \$60,000 \$200,000 \$804,920.93
Cost (NPV = 0)

\$804,920.93

*** Receipts from sales of ore, less out-of-pocket costs for salaries, utilities, insurance, and so forth. It is estimated that the mineral deposit would be exhausted after five years of mining. At that point, the working capital would be released for reinvestment elsewhere. The Company's required rate of return is 14%. Required: Determine the net present value of the proposed mining project. Should the project be accepted? Ignore income taxes.

Exercise 13-10 Internal Rate of Return and Net Present Value Given: Scalia's Cleaning Service is investigating the purchase of an ultrasound machine for cleaning window blinds. The machine would cost \$136,700, including invoice cost, freight, and training of employees to operate it. Scalia's has estimated that the new machine would increase the company's cash flows, net of expenses, by \$25,000 per year. The machine would have a 14-year useful life with no expected salvage value. Required: Ignore income taxes 1. Compute the machine's internal rate of return to the nearest whole percent. IRR = the interest rate that yields a NPV = 0 Annual cash inflows X Table Value ( Y%, 14 years) from PV of an Annuity Table - Cost = 0 \$25,000 X Table Value ( Y%, 14 years) from PV of an Annuity Table - \$136,700 = 0 \$25,000 X Table Value ( Y%, 14 years) from PV of an Annuity Table = \$136,700 Table Value (Y%, 14 years) from PV of an Annuity Table = \$136,700/\$25,000

Exercise 13-3 Uncertain Future Cash Flows Given: Union Bay Plastics is investigating the purchase of automated equipment that would save \$100,000 each year in direct labor and inventory carrying costs. This equipment costs \$750,000 and is expected to have a 10-year useful life with no salvage value. The company requires a minimum 15% rate of return on all equipment purchases. This equipment would provide intangible benefits such as greater flexibility and higher-quality output that are difficult to estimate and yet are quite significant. Required: 1. What dollar value per year would the intangible benefits have to be worth in order to make the equipment an acceptable investment? (Ignore income taxes). If Union Bay Plastics uses a discount rate of 15% to calculate the NPV and the resulting NPV equals zero, then the investment would be earning a return of exactly 15%; the IRR = 15%. Therefore: Annual cash inflows X Table Value (15%, 10 years) from PV of an Annuity Table - Cost = 0 (Annual cash inflows X 5.019) - \$750,000 = 0 5.019 (Annual cash inflows) = \$750,000 Annual cash inflows = \$750,000/5.019 Annual cash inflows = \$149,432.16 \$149,439.05 Thus the dollar value per year of the intangible benefits must be worth at least: Annual cash inflows required Less known yearly savings Minimum yearly intangible benefits Proof \$149,432.16 100,000.00 \$49,432.16 (\$750,000.00) \$149,432.16 \$149,432.16 \$149,432.16 \$149,432.16 \$149,432.16 \$149,432.16 \$149,432.16 \$149,432.16 \$149,432.16 \$149,432.16 (\$34.57) 14.998790% \$149,439.05 100,000.00 \$49,439.05 (\$750,000.00) \$149,439.05 \$149,439.05 \$149,439.05 \$149,439.05 \$149,439.05 \$149,439.05 \$149,439.05 \$149,439.05 \$149,439.05 \$149,439.05 \$0.00 15.000000%

Exercise 13-7 Payback Period and Simple Rate of Return Given: The Heritage Amusement Park would like to construct a new ride called the Sonic Boom, which the park management feels would be very popular. The ride would cost \$450,000 to construct, and it would have a 10% salvage value at the end of its 15-year useful life. The company estimates that the following annual costs and revenues would be associated with the ride: Ticket revenues Less operating expenses: Maintenance Salaries Depreciation Insurance Total Operating Expenses Net Operating Income \$250,000 \$40,000 90,000 27,000 30,000 187,000 \$63,000 \$945,000

Required: Ignore income taxes 1. Assume that the Heritage Amusement Park will not construct a new ride unless the ride provides a payback period of six years or less. Does the Sonic Boom ride satisfy this requirement? Payback period = Investment Required / Net Uniform Annual Cash Inflow

Net Uniform Annual Cash Inflow Net Operating Income Depreciation Net Uniform Annual Cash Inflow Payback period = Payback period = \$450,000 5.00 / years

## \$63,000 27,000 \$90,000 \$90,000

The Sonic Boom has a payback less than the maximum 6-year limit. The Sonic Boom satisfies the payback criterion. 2. Compute the simple accounting rate of return promised by the new ride. If Heritage Amusement Park requires a simple rate of return of at least 12%, does the Sonic Boom ride meet this criterion? Simple accounting rate of return = AROR = Annualized incremental NOI AROR = AROR = \$63,000 14.00% / \$450,000 AROR / Initial Investment Required

The Sonic Boom has an AROR greater than the minimum 12% requirement. The Sonic Boom satisfies the simple accounting rate or return criterion.

Required: 1. Determine the payback period of the investment. Investment Cash Outflow (\$38,000) (\$6,000)

## Year 1 2 3 4 5 ***** 6 ***** 7 8 9 10 Payback =

## Preference Ranking of Investment Projects

Given: Austin Company is investigating four different investment opportunities. Information on the four projects under study is given below: Project Number Investment required Present value of cash inflows (10%) Net present value Life of Project (in years) Internal Rate of Return 1 2 3 4 (\$480,000) (\$360,000) (\$270,000) (\$450,000) 567,270 433,400 336,140 522,970 \$87,270 \$73,400 \$66,140 \$72,970 6 12 6 3 16% 14% 18% 19%

Since the company's required rate of return is 10%, a 10% discount rate has been used tn the NPV calculations above. Limited funds are available for investment, so the company can not accept all of the available projects. Required: 1. Compute the project profitability index for each investment project. Project profitability index = Project Number Net present value Investment required Project profitability index
Present value of cash inflows (10%)/Investment Req.

2. Rank the four projects according to preference, in terms of: Project Number 1 a. NPV 1 b. PPI 3 c. IRR 3 3. Which ranking do you prefer? Why?

2 2 2 4

3 4 1 2

4 3 4 1

Which ranking is best depends on the company's opportunities for reinvesting funds as they are released from a project. IRR: The internal rate of return method assumes that any released funds are reinvested at the internal rate of return. This means that funds released from project #4 would have to be reinvested at a rate or return of 19%, but another project yielding such a high rate of return might be difficult to find. PPI: The project profitability index approach assumes that funds released from a project are reinvested at a rate of return equal to the discount rate, which in this case is only 10%. On balance, the PPI is generally regarded as the most dependable method of ranking competing projects.

NPV: The net present value is inferior to the project profitability index as a ranking device because it does not properly consider the amount of investment. For example, it ranks project #3 fourth because of its low NPV; yet this project is the best in terms of the amount of cash inflow generated per dollar invested.

Problem 13C-6 Net Present Value Analysis Including Income Taxes Given: The Crescent Drilling Company owns the drilling rights to several tracts of land on which natural gas has been found. Th on some of the tracts is somewhat marginal, and the company is unsure whether it would be profitable to extract and sell these tracts contain. One such tract is tract 410, on which the following information has been gathered:
Investment in equipment needed for extraction work Working capital investment needed Annual cash receipts from sale of gas, net of related cash operating expenses (before taxes) Cost of restoring the land at completion of extraction work

The natural gas in tract 410 would be exhausted after 10 years of extraction work. The equipment would have a useful life it could be sold for only 15% of its original cost when extraction was completed. For tax purposes, the company would de equipment over 10 years using straight-line depreciation and assuming zero salvage value. The tax rate is 30%, and the c tax discount rate is 10%.
