MARKET AND DEMAND ANALYSIS
1. We have to estimate the parameters a and b in the linear relationship
Y
t
= a + bT
Using the least squares method.
According to the least squares method the parameters are:

THE TIME VALUE OF MONEY
1. Value five years hence of a deposit of Rs.1,000 at various interest rates is as
follows:
r = 8% FV
5
= 1000 x FVIF (8%, 5 years)
= 1000 x 1.469 = Rs.1469
r = 10% FV
5
= 1000 x FVIF (10%, 5 years)
= 1000 x 1.611 = Rs.1611
r = 12% FV
5
= 1000 x FVIF (12%, 5 years)
= 1000 x 1.762 = Rs.1762
r = 15% FV
5
= 1000 x FVIF (15%, 5 years)
= 1000 x 2.011 = Rs.2011
2. Rs.160,000 / Rs. 5,000 = 32 = 2
5
According to the Rule of 72 at 12 percent interest rate doubling takes place
approximately in 72 / 12 = 6 years
So Rs.5000 will grow to Rs.160,000 in approximately 5 x 6 years = 30 years
3. In 12 years Rs.1000 grows to Rs.8000 or 8 times. This is 2
3
times the initial
deposit. Hence doubling takes place in 12 / 3 = 4 years.
According to the Rule of 69, the doubling period is:
0.35 + 69 / Interest rate
Equating this to 4 and solving for interest rate, we get
Interest rate = 18.9%.
4. Saving Rs.2000 a year for 5 years and Rs.3000 a year for 10 years thereafter is
equivalent to saving Rs.2000 a year for 15 years and Rs.1000 a year for the
years 6 through 15.
Hence the savings will cumulate to:
2000 x FVIFA (10%, 15 years) + 1000 x FVIFA (10%, 10 years)
= 2000 x 31.772 + 1000 x 15.937 = Rs.79481.
5. Let A be the annual savings.
A x FVIFA (12%, 10 years) = 1,000,000
A x 17.549 = 1,000,000
So A = 1,000,000 / 17.549 = Rs.56,983.
6. 1,000 x FVIFA (r, 6 years) = 10,000
FVIFA (r, 6 years) = 10,000 / 1000 = 10
From the tables we find that
FVIFA (20%, 6 years) = 9.930
FVIFA (24%, 6 years) = 10.980
Using linear interpolation in the interval, we get:
20% + (10.000 9.930)
r = x 4% = 20.3%
(10.980 9.930)
7. 1,000 x FVIF (r, 10 years) = 5,000
FVIF (r,10 years) = 5,000 / 1000 = 5
From the tables we find that
FVIF (16%, 10 years) = 4.411
FVIF (18%, 10 years) = 5.234
Using linear interpolation in the interval, we get:
(5.000 4.411) x 2%
r = 16% + = 17.4%
(5.234 4.411)
8. The present value of Rs.10,000 receivable after 8 years for various discount
rates (r ) are:
r = 10% PV = 10,000 x PVIF(r = 10%, 8 years)
= 10,000 x 0.467 = Rs.4,670
r = 12% PV = 10,000 x PVIF (r = 12%, 8 years)
= 10,000 x 0.404 = Rs.4,040
r = 15% PV = 10,000 x PVIF (r = 15%, 8 years)
= 10,000 x 0.327 = Rs.3,270
9. Assuming that it is an ordinary annuity, the present value is:
2,000 x PVIFA (10%, 5years)
= 2,000 x 3.791 = Rs.7,582
10. The present value of an annual pension of Rs.10,000 for 15 years when r = 15%
is:
10,000 x PVIFA (15%, 15 years)
= 10,000 x 5.847 = Rs.58,470
The alternative is to receive a lumpsum of Rs.50,000.
Obviously, Mr. Jingo will be better off with the annual pension amount of
Rs.10,000.
11. The amount that can be withdrawn annually is:
100,000 100,000
A =   =  = Rs.10,608
PVIFA (10%, 30 years) 9.427
12. The present value of the income stream is:
1,000 x PVIF (12%, 1 year) + 2,500 x PVIF (12%, 2 years)
+ 5,000 x PVIFA (12%, 8 years) x PVIF(12%, 2 years)
= 1,000 x 0.893 + 2,500 x 0.797 + 5,000 x 4.968 x 0.797 = Rs.22,683.
13. The present value of the income stream is:
2,000 x PVIFA (10%, 5 years) + 3000/0.10 x PVIF (10%, 5 years)
= 2,000 x 3.791 + 3000/0.10 x 0.621
= Rs.26,212
14. To earn an annual income of Rs.5,000 beginning from the end of 15 years from
now, if the deposit earns 10% per year a sum of
Rs.5,000 / 0.10 = Rs.50,000
is required at the end of 14 years. The amount that must be deposited to get this
sum is:
Rs.50,000 / PVIF (10%, 14 years) = Rs.50,000 / 3.797 = Rs.13,165
15. Rs.20,000 = Rs.4,000 x PVIFA (r, 10 years)
PVIFA (r,10 years) = Rs.20,000 / Rs.4,000 = 5.00
From the tables we find that:
PVIFA (15%, 10 years) = 5.019
PVIFA (18%, 10 years) = 4.494
Using linear interpolation we get:
5.019 5.00
r = 15% +  x 3%
5.019 4.494
= 15.1%
16. PV (Stream A) = Rs.100 x PVIF (12%, 1 year) + Rs.200 x
PVIF (12%, 2 years) + Rs.300 x PVIF(12%, 3 years) + Rs.400 x
PVIF (12%, 4 years) + Rs.500 x PVIF (12%, 5 years) +
Rs.600 x PVIF (12%, 6 years) + Rs.700 x PVIF (12%, 7 years) +
Rs.800 x PVIF (12%, 8 years) + Rs.900 x PVIF (12%, 9 years) +
Rs.1,000 x PVIF (12%, 10 years)
= Rs.100 x 0.893 + Rs.200 x 0.797 + Rs.300 x 0.712
+ Rs.400 x 0.636 + Rs.500 x 0.567 + Rs.600 x 0.507
+ Rs.700 x 0.452 + Rs.800 x 0.404 + Rs.900 x 0.361
+ Rs.1,000 x 0.322
= Rs.2590.9
Similarly,
PV (Stream B) = Rs.3,625.2
PV (Stream C) = Rs.2,851.1

20. Investment required at the end of 8
th
year to yield an income of Rs.12,000 per
year from the end of 9
th
year (beginning of 10
th
year) for ever:
Rs.12,000 x PVIFA(12%, )
= Rs.12,000 / 0.12 = Rs.100,000
To have a sum of Rs.100,000 at the end of 8
th
year , the amount to be deposited
now is:
Rs.100,000 Rs.100,000
= = Rs.40,388
PVIF(12%, 8 years) 2.476
21. The interest rate implicit in the offer of Rs.20,000 after 10 years in lieu of
Rs.5,000 now is:
Rs.5,000 x FVIF (r,10 years) = Rs.20,000
Rs.20,000
FVIF (r,10 years) = = 4.000
Rs.5,000
From the tables we find that
FVIF (15%, 10 years) = 4.046
This means that the implied interest rate is nearly 15%.
I would choose Rs.20,000 for 10 years from now because I find a return of 15%
quite acceptable.
22. FV
10
= Rs.10,000 [1 + (0.10 / 2)]
10x2
= Rs.10,000 (1.05)
20
= Rs.10,000 x 2.653
= Rs.26,530
If the inflation rate is 8% per year, the value of Rs.26,530 10 years from now, in
terms of the current rupees is:
Rs.26,530 x PVIF (8%,10 years)
= Rs.26,530 x 0.463 = Rs.12,283
23. A constant deposit at the beginning of each year represents an annuity due.
PVIFA of an annuity due is equal to : PVIFA of an ordinary annuity x (1 + r)
To provide a sum of Rs.50,000 at the end of 10 years the annual deposit should
be
Rs.50,000
A = FVIFA(12%, 10 years) x (1.12)
Rs.50,000
= = Rs.2544
17.549 x 1.12
24. The discounted value of Rs.20,000 receivable at the beginning of each year from
2005 to 2009, evaluated as at the beginning of 2004 (or end of 2003) is:
Rs.20,000 x PVIFA (12%, 5 years)
= Rs.20,000 x 3.605 = Rs.72,100.
The discounted value of Rs.72,100 evaluated at the end of 2000 is
Rs.72,100 x PVIF (12%, 3 years)
= Rs.72,100 x 0.712 = Rs.51,335
If A is the amount deposited at the end of each year from 1995 to 2000 then
A x FVIFA (12%, 6 years) = Rs.51,335
A x 8.115 = Rs.51,335
A = Rs.51,335 / 8.115 = Rs.6326
25. The discounted value of the annuity of Rs.2000 receivable for 30 years,
evaluated as at the end of 9
th
year is:
Rs.2,000 x PVIFA (10%, 30 years) = Rs.2,000 x 9.427 = Rs.18,854
The present value of Rs.18,854 is:
Rs.18,854 x PVIF (10%, 9 years)
= Rs.18,854 x 0.424
= Rs.7,994
26. 30 percent of the pension amount is
0.30 x Rs.600 = Rs.180
Assuming that the monthly interest rate corresponding to an annual interest rate
of 12% is 1%, the discounted value of an annuity of Rs.180 receivable at the end of
each month for 180 months (15 years) is:
Rs.180 x PVIFA (1%, 180)
(1.01)

If Mr. Ramesh borrows Rs.P today on which the monthly interest rate is 1%
P x (1.01)

= Rs.14,998
P x 1.817 = Rs.14,998
Rs.14,998
P =  = Rs.8254

27. Rs.300 x PVIFA(r, 24 months) = Rs.6,000
PVIFA (4%,24) = Rs.6000 / Rs.300 = 20
From the tables we find that:
PVIFA(1%,24) = 21.244
PVIFA (2%, 24) = 18.914
Using a linear interpolation
21.244 20.000
r = 1% +  x 1%
21.244 18,914
= 1.53%
Thus, the bank charges an interest rate of 1.53% per month.
The corresponding effective rate of interest per annum is
[ (1.0153)
12
1 ] x 100 = 20%
28. The discounted value of the debentures to be redeemed between 8 to 10 years
evaluated at the end of the 5
th
year is:
Rs.10 million x PVIF (8%, 3 years)
+ Rs.10 million x PVIF (8%, 4 years)
+ Rs.10 million x PVIF (8%, 5 years)
= Rs.10 million (0.794 + 0.735 + 0.681)
= Rs.2.21 million
If A is the annual deposit to be made in the sinking fund for the years 1 to 5, then
A x FVIFA (8%, 5 years) = Rs.2.21 million
A x 5.867 = Rs.2.21 million
A = 5.867 = Rs.2.21 million
A = Rs.2.21 million / 5.867 = Rs.0.377 million
29. Let `n be the number of years for which a sum of Rs.20,000 can be withdrawn
annually.
Rs.20,000 x PVIFA (10%, n) = Rs.100,000
PVIFA (15%, n) = Rs.100,000 / Rs.20,000 = 5.000
From the tables we find that
PVIFA (10%, 7 years) = 4.868
PVIFA (10%, 8 years) = 5.335
Thus n is between 7 and 8. Using a linear interpolation we get
5.000 4.868
n = 7 +  x 1 = 7.3 years
5.335 4.868
30. Equated annual installment = 500000 / PVIFA(14%,4)
= 500000 / 2.914
= Rs.171,585

31. Define n as the maturity period of the loan. The value of n can be obtained
from the equation.
200,000 x PVIFA(13%, n) = 1,500,000
PVIFA (13%, n) = 7.500
From the tables or otherwise it can be verified that PVIFA(13,30) = 7.500
Hence the maturity period of the loan is 30 years.

d. Highest BCR
3. IRR (r) can be calculated by solving the following equations for the value of r.
60000 x PVIFA (r,7) = 300,000
i.e., PVIFA (r,7) = 5.000
Through a process of trial and error it can be verified that r = 9.20% p.a.
4. The IRR (r) for the given cashflow stream can be obtained by solving the
following equation for the value of r.
3000 + 9000 / (1+r) 3000 / (1+r) = 0
Simplifying the above equation we get
r = 1.61, 0.61; (or) 161%, ()61%
Note : Given two changes in the signs of cashflow, we get two values for the
IRR of the cashflow stream. In such cases, the IRR rule breaks down.
5. Define NCF as the minimum constant annual net cashflow that justifies the
purchase of the given equipment. The value of NCF can be obtained from the
equation
NCF x PVIFA (10%,8) = 500000
NCF = 500000 / 5.335
= 93271
6. Define I as the initial investment that is justified in relation to a net annual cash
inflow of 25000 for 10 years at a discount rate of 12% per annum. The value
of I can be obtained from the following equation
25000 x PVIFA (12%,10) = I
i.e., I = 141256
7. PV of benefits (PVB) = 25000 x PVIF (15%,1)
+ 40000 x PVIF (15%,2)
+ 50000 x PVIF (15%,3)
+ 40000 x PVIF (15%,4)
+ 30000 x PVIF (15%,5)
= 122646 (A)
Investment = 100,000 (B)
Benefit cost ratio = 1.23 [= (A) / (B)]
8. The NPVs of the three projects are as follows:
Project
P Q R
Discount rate
0% 400 500 600
5% 223 251 312
10% 69 40 70
15%  66  142  135
25%  291  435  461
30%  386  555  591
9. NPV profiles for Projects P and Q for selected discount rates are as follows:
(a)
Project
P Q
Discount rate (%)
0 2950 500
5 1876 208
10 1075  28
15 471  222
20 11  382
b) (i) The IRR (r ) of project P can be obtained by solving the following
equation for `r.
1000 1200 x PVIF (r,1) 600 x PVIF (r,2) 250 x PVIF (r,3)
+ 2000 x PVIF (r,4) + 4000 x PVIF (r,5) = 0
Through a process of trial and error we find that r = 20.13%
(ii) The IRR (r') of project Q can be obtained by solving the following
equation for r'
1600 + 200 x PVIF (r',1) + 400 x PVIF (r',2) + 600 x PVIF (r',3)
+ 800 x PVIF (r',4) + 100 x PVIF (r',5) = 0
Through a process of trial and error we find that r' = 9.34%.
c) From (a) we find that at a cost of capital of 10%
NPV (P) = 1075
NPV (Q) =  28
Given that NPV (P), NPV (Q) and NPV (P) > 0, I would choose project P.
From (a) we find that at a cost of capital of 20%
NPV (P) = 11
NPV (Q) =  382
Again NPV (P) > NPV (Q); and NPV (P) > 0. I would choose project P.
d) Project P
PV of investmentrelated costs
= 1000 x PVIF (12%,0)
+ 1200 x PVIF (12%,1) + 600 x PVIF (12%,2)
+ 250 x PVIF (12%,3)
= 2728
TV of cash inflows = 2000 x (1.12) + 4000 = 6240
The MIRR of the project P is given by the equation:
2728 = 6240 x PVIF (MIRR,5)
(1 + MIRR)
5
= 2.2874
MIRR = 18%
(c) Project Q
PV of investmentrelated costs = 1600
TV of cash inflows @ 15% p.a. = 2772
The MIRR of project Q is given by the equation:
16000 (1 + MIRR)
5
= 2772
MIRR = 11.62%
10.
(a) Project A
NPV at a cost of capital of 12%
=  100 + 25 x PVIFA (12%,6)
= Rs.2.79 million
IRR (r ) can be obtained by solving the following equation for r.
25 x PVIFA (r,6) = 100
i.e., r = 12,98%
Project B
NPV at a cost of capital of 12%
=  50 + 13 x PVIFA (12%,6)
= Rs.3.45 million
IRR (r') can be obtained by solving the equation
13 x PVIFA (r',6) = 50
i.e., r' = 14.40% [determined through a process of trial and error]
(b) Difference in capital outlays between projects A and B is Rs.50 million
Difference in net annual cash flow between projects A and B is Rs.12 million.
NPV of the differential project at 12%
= 50 + 12 x PVIFA (12%,6)
= Rs.3.15 million
IRR (r'') of the differential project can be obtained from the equation
12 x PVIFA (r'', 6) = 50
i.e., r'' = 11.53%
11.
(a) Project M
The pay back period of the project lies between 2 and 3 years. Interpolating in
this range we get an approximate pay back period of 2.63 years.
Project N
The pay back period lies between 1 and 2 years. Interpolating in this range we
get an approximate pay back period of 1.55 years.
(b) Project M
Cost of capital = 12% p.a
PV of cash flows up to the end of year 2 = 24.97
PV of cash flows up to the end of year 3 = 47.75
PV of cash flows up to the end of year 4 = 71.26
Discounted pay back period (DPB) lies between 3 and 4 years. Interpolating in
this range we get an approximate DPB of 3.1 years.
Project N
Cost of capital = 12% per annum
PV of cash flows up to the end of year 1 = 33.93
PV of cash flows up to the end of year 2 = 51.47
DPB lies between 1 and 2 years. Interpolating in this range we get an
approximate DPB of 1.92 years.
(c) Project M
Cost of capital = 12% per annum
NPV =  50 + 11 x PVIFA (12%,1)
+ 19 x PVIF (12%,2) + 32 x PVIF (12%,3)
+ 37 x PVIF (12%,4)
= Rs.21.26 million
Project N
Cost of capital = 12% per annum
NPV = Rs.20.63 million
Since the two projects are independent and the NPV of each project is (+) ve,
both the projects can be accepted. This assumes that there is no capital
constraint.
(d) Project M
Cost of capital = 10% per annum
NPV = Rs.25.02 million
Project N
Cost of capital = 10% per annum
NPV = Rs.23.08 million
Since the two projects are mutually exclusive, we need to choose the project
with the higher NPV i.e., choose project M.
Note : The MIRR can also be used as a criterion of merit for choosing between
the two projects because their initial outlays are equal.
(e) Project M
Cost of capital = 15% per annum
NPV = 16.13 million
Project N
Cost of capital: 15% per annum
NPV = Rs.17.23 million
Again the two projects are mutually exclusive. So we choose the project with the
higher NPV, i.e., choose project N.
(f) Project M
Terminal value of the cash inflows: 114.47
MIRR of the project is given by the equation
50 (1 + MIRR)
4
= 114.47
i.e., MIRR = 23.01%
Project N
Terminal value of the cash inflows: 115.41
MIRR of the project is given by the equation
50 ( 1+ MIRR)
4
= 115.41
i.e., MIRR = 23.26%
12. The internal rate of return is the value of r in the equation

At r = 18%, the right hand side is equal to 8099
At r = 20%, the right hand side is equal to 7726
Thus the solving value of r is :
8,099 8,000
18% + x 2% = 18.5%

Through a process of trial and error, we get r = 55.17%. The IRR of the

Chapter 10
THE COST OF CAPITAL
1(a) Define r
D
as the pretax cost of debt. Using the approximate yield formula, r
D
can be calculated as follows:
14 + (100 108)/10
r
D
=  x 100 = 12.60%
0.4 x 100 + 0.6x108
(b) After tax cost = 12.60 x (1 0.35) = 8.19%
2. Define r
p
as the cost of preference capital. Using the approximate yield formula
r
p
can be calculated as follows:
9 + (100 92)/6
r
p
= 
0.4 x100 + 0.6x92
= 0.1085 (or) 10.85%
3. WACC = 0.4 x 13% x (1 0.35)
+ 0.6 x 18%
= 14.18%
4. Cost of equity = 10% + 1.2 x 7% = 18.4%
(using SML equation)
Pretax cost of debt = 14%
Aftertax cost of debt = 14% x (1 0.35) = 9.1%
Debt equity ratio = 2 : 3
WACC = 2/5 x 9.1% + 3/5 x 18.4%
= 14.68%
5. Given
0.5 x 14% x (1 0.35) + 0.5 x r
E
= 12%
where r
E
is the cost of equity capital.
Therefore r
E
14.9%
Using the SML equation we get
11% + 8% x = 14.9%
where denotes the beta of Azeezs equity.
Solving this equation we get = 0.4875.
6 (a) The cost of debt of 12% represents the historical interest rate at the time the debt
was originally issued. But we need to calculate the marginal cost of debt (cost
of raising new debt); and for this purpose we need to calculate the yield to
maturity of the debt as on the balance sheet date. The yield to maturity will not
be equal to 12% unless the book value of debt is equal to the market value of
debt on the balance sheet date.
(b) The cost of equity has been taken as D
1
/P
0
( = 6/100) whereas the cost of equity
is (D
1
/P
0
) + g where g represents the expected constant growth rate in dividend
per share.
7. The book value and market values of the different sources of finance are
provided in the following table. The book value weights and the market value
weights are provided within parenthesis in the table.

(a) Given
r
D
x (1 0.3) x 4/9 + 20% x 5/9 = 15%
r
D
= 12.5%,where r
D
represents the pretax cost of debt.
(b) Given
13% x (1 0.3) x 4/9 + r
E

r
E

E
represents the cost of equity.
9. Cost of equity = D

(a) The first chunk of financing will comprise of Rs.5 million of retained
earnings costing 15 percent and Rs.25 million of debt costing 14 (1.3) = 9.8
percent.
The second chunk of financing will comprise of Rs.5 million of additional
equity costing 15 percent and Rs.2.5 million of debt costing 15 (1.3) = 10.5
percent.
(b) The marginal cost of capital in the first chunk will be :
5/7.5 x 15% + 2.5/7.5 x 9.8% = 13.27%
The marginal cost of capital in the second chunk will be :
5/7.5 x 15% + 2.5/7.5 x 10.5% = 13.50%
Note : We have assumed that
(i) The net realisation per share will be Rs.25, after floatation costs, and
(ii) The planned investment of Rs.15 million is inclusive of floatation costs

0.6x80 + 0.4x100
The posttax cost of debentures is

The posttax cost of term loans is

Cost of capital 14% 13% 12%
NPV  171.47 21.31 260.10
Assumptions: (1) The useful life is assumed to be 10 years under all three
scenarios. It is also assumed that the salvage value of the
investment after ten years is zero.
(2) The investment is assumed to be depreciated at 10% per
annum; and it is also assumed that this method and rate of
depreciation are acceptable to the IT (income tax)
authorities.
(3) The tax rate has been calculated from the given table i.e.
10 / 35 x 100 = 28.57%.
(4) It is assumed that only loss on this project can be offset
against the taxable profit on other projects of the
company; and thus the company can claim a tax shield on
the loss in the same year.
(c) Accounting break even point (under expected scenario)
Fixed costs + depreciation = Rs. 45 million
Contribution margin ratio = 60 / 200 = 0.3
Break even level of sales = 45 / 0.3 = Rs.150 million
Financial break even point (under expected scenario)
i. Annual net cash flow = 0.7143 [ 0.3 x sales 45 ] + 25
= 0.2143 sales 7.14
ii. PV (net cash flows) = [0.2143 sales 7.14 ] x PVIFA (13%,10)
= 1.1628 sales 38.74
iii. Initial investment = 200
iv. Financial break even level
of sales = 238.74 / 1.1628 = Rs.205.31 million

P Can assume any of the values 20, 30, 30**
40 and 50
V Can assume any one of the values 20*
15,20 and 40

* The most likely values in the case of Q, P and V are the values that
have the highest probability associated with them
** In the case of price, 20 and 30 have the same probability of
occurrence viz., 0.4. We have chosen 30 as the most likely value
because the expected value of the distribution is closer to 30
Sensitivity Analysis with Reference to Q

is .1075 for the given investment with an expected
PI of 1.24. The maximum standard deviation of PI acceptable to the company
for an investment with an expected PI of 1.25 is 0.30.
Since the risk associated with the investment is much less than the maximum
risk acceptable to the company for the given level of expected PI, the company
should accept the investment.
9. Investment A
Outlay : Rs.10,000
Net cash flow : Rs.3,000 for 6 years
Required rate of return : 12%
NPV(A) = 3,000 x PVIFA (12%, 6 years) 10,000
= 3,000 x 4.11 10,000 = Rs.2,333
Investment B
Outlay : Rs.30,000
Net cash flow : Rs.11,000 for 5 years
Required rate of return : 14%
NPV(B) = 11,000 x PVIFA (14%, 5 years) 30,000

PI and IRR for the two projects are as follows:
Project A B
PI 1.23 1.26
IRR 20% 24.3%
B is superior to A in terms of NPV, PI, and IRR. Hence the company must
choose B.

B 0.8 11 + 0.8 x 6 = 15.8 16
C 1.2 11 + 1.2 x 6 = 18.2 21
D 1.6 11 + 1.6 x 6 = 20.6 22
E 1.7 11 + 1.7 x 6 = 21.2 23
a. The expected return of all the 5 projects exceeds the required rate as per the CAPM.
So all of them should be accepted.
b. If the cost of capital of firm which is 16 percent is used as the hurdle rate, project A
will be rejected incorrectly.
5. The asset beta is linked to equity beta, debtequity ratio, and tax rate as follows:

E

A
=
[1 + D/E (1 T)]
The asset beta of A, B, and C is calculated below:
Firm Asset Beta
1.25
A = 0.49
[1 + (2.25) x 0.7]
1.25
B = 0.48
[1 + (2.00) x 0.7]
1.10
C = 0.45
[1 + (2.1) x 0.7]
0.49 + 0.48 + 0.45
Average of the asset betas of sample firms = = 0.47
3
The equity beta of the cement project is

E
= 
A
[ 1 + D/E (1 T)]
= 0.47 [1 + 2 (10.3)] = 1.128
As per the CAPM model, the cost of equity of the proposed project is:
12% + (17%  12%) x 1.128 = 17.64%
The posttax cost of debt is:
16% (1 0.3) = 11.2%
The required rate of return for the project given a debtequity ratio of 2:1 is:
1/3 x 17.64% + 2/3 x 11.2% = 13.35%
6. 
E

A
=
[1 + D/E (1 T)]

E
= 1.25 D/E = 1.6 T = 0.3
So, Pariman Companys asset beta is:
1.25
= 0.59
[1 + 1.6 (0.7)]
7. (a) Asset beta for a petrochemicals project is:

E
1.30

A
= =
[1 + D/E ( 1 T)] [1 + 1.5 (1 .4)]
= 0.68
The equity beta (systematic risk) for the petrochemicals project of Growmore,
when D/E = 1.25 and T = 0.4, is
0.68 [1 + 1.25 (1 .4)] = 1.19
(b) The cost of equity for the petrochemicals project is
12% + 1.19 (18%  12%) = 19.14%
The cost of debt is
12% (1 0.4) = 7.2%
Given, a debt equity ratio of 1.25 the required return for the petrochemicals
project is
1 1.25
19.14% x + 7% x = 12.4%
2.25 2.25

SPECIAL DECISION SITUATIONS
1. PV Cost
UAE =
PVIFA
r,n
Cost of plastic emulsion painting = Rs.3,00,000 Life = 7 years
Cost of distemper painting = Rs. 1,80,000 Life = 3 years
Discount rate = 10%
UAE of plastic emulsion painting = Rs.3,00,000 / 4.868 = Rs.61,627
UAE of distemper painting = Rs.1,80,000 / 2.487 = Rs.72,376
Since plastic emulsion painting has a lower UAE, it is preferable.

Present value of costs of internal transportation = 1,500,000 1,372,013
system 162,828 = Rs.27,09,185
UAE of the internal transportation system = 27,09,185 / 3.517 = Rs.7,70,311
3. Cost of standard overhaul = Rs.500,000
Cost of less costly overhaul = Rs.200,000
Cost of capital = 14%
UAE of standard overhaul = 500,000 / 3.889 = Rs.128,568
UAE of less costly overhaul = 200,000 / 1.647 = Rs.121,433
Since the less costly overhaul has a lower UAE, it is the preferred alternative

Social cost of the tradeable component 4.867
(7.3 / 1.5)
Social cost of labour component 1.75
(3.5 x 0.5)
Social cost of residual component 1.60
(3.2 x 0.5)
Total 112.491
As per Table 2, the annual social cost of operation is worked out as follows :
Tradeable value ab initio 82.967
Social cost of the tradeable component 4.367
( 6.55 x 1/1.5 )
Social cost of labour component 1.075
(2.15 x 0.5)
Social cost of residual component 1.150
(2.3 x 0.5)
Total 89.559
The annual CIF value of the output is Rs.110 million. Hence the annual social
net benefit will be : 110 89.559 = Rs.20.441 million
Working capital recovery will be Rs.20 million at the end of the 20
th
year.
Putting the above figures together the social flows associated with the project
would be as follows :

A 4822 1 19% 2
B 4296 2 about 22% 1
5. The NPVs of the projects are as follows:
NPV (A) = 6000 x PVIFA(10%,5) + 5000 x PVIF(10%,5) 20,000 = Rs.5851
NPV (B) = 8000 x PVIFA(10%,8) 50,000 =  Rs.840
NPV (C) = 15,000 x PVIFA(10%,8) 75,000 = Rs.5025
NPV (D) = 15,000 x PVIFA(10%,12) 100,000 = Rs.6,995
NPV (E) = 25,000 x PVIFA (10%,7) + 50,000 x PVIF(10%,7)
150,000 = Rs.2,650
Since B and E have negative NPV, they are rejected. So we consider only A, C,
and D. Further C and D are mutually exclusive. The feasible combinations, their
outlays, and their NPVs are given below.
Combination Outlay

A & D 120,000 12,846
The preferred combination is A & D.

6. Presently a 9 unit building yields a profit of Rs.1.8 million (9 x 1.2 9) and a 15 unit
building yields a profit of Rs.1.0 million (15 x 1.2 17). Hence a 9 unit building is
the best alternative if the builder has to construct now.
However, if the builder waits for a year, his payoffs will be as follows:
Market Condition
Alternative Buoyant (Apartment price:
Rs.1.5 million)
Sluggish (Apartment price:
Rs.1.1million)
9 unit building 1.5 x 9 9 = 4.5 1.1 x 9 9 = 0.9
15 unit building 1.5 x 15 17 = 5.5 1.1 x 15 17 = 0.5
Thus, if the market turns out to be buoyant the best alternative is the 15 unit
building (payoff: Rs.5.5 million) and if the market turns out to be sluggish the best
alternative is the 9 unit building (payoff: Rs.0.9 million).
Given the above information, we can apply the binomial method for valuing the
vacant land:
Step 1: Calculate the riskneutral probabilities.
The binomial tree of apartment values is
Rs.1.60 million (1.6 + 0.1)
p
Rs.1.2 million
1 p Rs.1.20 million (1.1 + 0.1)
Given a risk free rate of 10 percent, the riskneutral probabilities must satisfy the
following conditions:
p x 1.6 + (1 p) x 120
1.2 million =
1.10
Solving this we get p = 0.3
Step 2: Calculate the expected cash flow next year
The expected cash flow next year is:
0.3 x 5.5 + 0.7 x 0.9 = Rs.2.28 million
Step 3: Compute the current value
2.28/ 1.10 = Rs.2.07 million
Since Rs.2.07 million is greater than Rs.1.80 million, the profit from
constructing a 9 unit building now, it is advisable to keep the vacant land. The value of
the vacant land is Rs.2.07 million.

Examining the timecost slope of activities on the critical path, we find that
activity (67) has the lowest slope on both the critical paths. The project network after
crashing this activity is shown below in Exhibit 8.

As per Exhibit 8, the critical paths are (134679) and (124679) with a
length of 31 weeks and the total cost is Rs.66,900.
Looking at the timecost slope of the activities on the critical paths (134679)
and (124679), we find that activities (13) and (79) have the least timecost slopes
on the two critical paths respectively. The project net work after crashing these
activities is shown in Exhibit 9.

As per Exhibit 9, the critical path is (124679) with a length of 29 weeks and
the total direct cost is Rs.(66,900 + 2,200) = Rs.69,100. Activity (46) has the least
timecost slope on the critical path. Hence this is crashed the net work after crashing
(46) is shown in Exhibit 10.

As per Exhibit 10, the critical path is (1359), with a length of 26 weeks, and
total direct costs of Rs.72,100. Looking at the timecost slope of the noncrashed
activities on this path we find that activity (35) has the lowest slope. Hence it is
crashed. The project net work after such crashing is shown in Exhibit 11.

As per Exhibit 11, the critical path is (124679), with a length of 25 weeks
and a total direct cost of Rs.75,700.
Looking at the time cost slope of the activities on this critical path, we find both
activities (12) and (24) have the same slope. We crash activity (24). The resulting
project network net work is given in Exhibit 12.

on this critical path, we get the net work shown in Exhibit 13.

As per Exhibit 14, the critical path is (134679) with a duration of 20 weeks,
and a total direct cost of Rs.85,700. Since all activities on this path are crashed, there is
no possibility of further time reduction.

If the objective is to minimise the total cost of the project, the pattern to crashing
suggested by Exhibit 10 may appear as the best. However, it is possible to reduce the
cost further without increasing the project duration beyond 26 weeks by decrashing
some activities on the noncritical paths. To do so, begin with the activity which has the
highest timecost slope and proceed in the order of decreasing timecost slope.
