### Sally's broker told her that the expected return from her portfolio was 14.2%. If 40% of her securities have an expected return of 10.3 percent and 20% have an expected return of 12.8 percent, what is the expected return of the remaining portion of her portfolio?

Solution:
14.2%-0.4(10.3%)-0.2(12.8%)=0.4X
X=18.8%

### If the return on U.S. Treasury bills is 7.02%, the risk premium is 2.32%, and the inflation rate is 4.16%, then the real rate of return is:

Solution:

### AKA's stock is currently selling for \$11.44. This year the firm had earnings per share of \$2.80 and the current dividend is \$0.68. Earnings are expected to grow 7% a year in the foreseeable future. The risk-free rate is 10 percent and the expected market return is 14.2 percent. What will be the effect on the price of AKAs' stock if systematic risk increases by 40 percent, all other factors remaining constant?

Solution:
Old ke=0.10+Betaj(0.142-0.10)=0.10+0.042Betaj
P=\$0.68(1.07)/(0.10+0.042Betaj-0.07)=\$11.44
Bj=0.80
New ke=0.10+0.8(1.4)(0.042)=0.147
P=\$0.7276/(0.147-0.07)=\$9.45
A decrease of \$1.99 a share

### HDTV has planned on diversifying into the dual-VCR field. As a result, HDTV's beta would rise to 1.6 from 1.2 and the expected future long-term growth rate in the firm's earnings would increase from 12% to 16%. The expected market return, km, is 14%; the risk free rate, rf, is 7%; and the current dividend, Do, is \$0.50. Should HDTV go into the dual-VCR field?

Solution:
kold = .07 +1.2(.14-.07) = .154
knew = .07 +1.6(.07) = .182
Po = .50(1.12)/(.154 - .12) = \$16.47
Pn = .50(1.16)/(.182 - .16) = \$26.36

### What is the net investment for an extruder that costs \$42,000, if shipping costs are \$1,500 and installation is \$4,800? Assume this efficient machine is replacing an older extruder with a book and market value of zero. The replacement investment will reduce operating costs by \$6,600 a year.

Solution:
NINV=\$42,000+\$1,500+\$4,800=\$48,300\$48,300

### Capital Foods purchased an oven 5 years ago for \$45,000. The oven is being depreciated over its estimated 10-year life using the straight line method to a salvage value of \$5,000. Capital is planning to replace the oven with a more automated one that will cost \$150,000 installed. If the old oven can be sold for \$30,000, what is the tax liability? Assume a marginal tax rate of 40 percent

Solution:
Book Value=\$45,000-5(\$45,000-\$5,000)/10=\$25,000
Tax liability=(\$30,000-\$25,000)(0.4)=\$2,000\$2,000

### Outback is purchasing a new machine that will cost \$98,000. The machine will qualify as MACRS 5-year property but has an economic life of 8 years. The new machine is expected to increase revenues by \$35,000 per year and operating costs are expected to increase by \$15,000 per year. If the firm's marginal tax rate is 34 percent and the first year's depreciation rate is 20 percent, what is the net cash flow in the first year.

Solution:
NCF = (\$35,000 - \$15,000 - \$19,600)(1 - 0.34) + \$19,600 = \$19, 864
\$19,864

### Allen Company is considering an investment project that is expected to generate \$100,000 in annual earnings before taxes. Annual depreciation will be \$50,000. Allen's marginal tax rate is 40%. Determine the project's annual net cash flows.

Solution:
NCF = ΔEBT (1 - T) + ΔDep
= \$100,000 (1 - 0.40) + \$50,000 = \$110,000

### Ripstart is replacing an old, fully depreciated stamping line with a more efficient machine that will cost \$245,000. The line will be depreciated as a 7-year MACRS asset. With the increased production, Ripstart expects revenues to increase by \$55,000, and operating expenses to increase by \$20,000. If Ripstart expects to sell the new machine at the end of year 5 for \$40,000, compute the net cash flow in the fifth year. The MACRS depreciation rate during the fifth year is 8.93% and the accumulated MACRS depreciation after five years totals 77.69 percent of the cost of the asset. Assume the firm's marginal tax rate is 40 percent and that company does get to take the full benefit of year 5 depreciation.

Solution:
Dep5 = 245,000(0.0893) = 21,878.50
Book value at the end of year 5 = \$245,000 - \$245,000 (0.7769) = \$54,659.50
NCF5 = (\$55,000 - \$20,000 - \$21,878.50)(1 - 0.4) + \$21,878.50 +\$40,000
+ (\$54,659.50 - \$40,000)0.4 = \$7,872.90 + \$61,878.50 + \$5,863.80 = \$75,615.20

### Anderson Clayton will purchase a new pellet mill that replace an older, less efficient, mill. The new mill costs \$360,000 and shipping costs are \$10,000. Improving the steam lines to the new mill will cost an additional \$22,000. The old mill has a book value of \$25,000 and can be sold for \$12,000. The installation of the new mill will cause inventories to increase by \$8,000, accounts receivable will go up \$20,000, and accounts payable will increase \$10,000. If Anderson Clayton has a marginal tax rate of 40%, what is the NINV for the new mill?

Solution:
Installed cost \$392,000
Less: salvage - 12,000
Less: tax savings on sale - 5,200
\$392,800

### A Lotta Bread Corp. is replacing an entire baking line that was purchased for \$420,000 and currently has a book value of \$60,000. The new, more efficient line, will cost \$940,000 installed and can be depreciated as a 7-year MACRS asset. With the increased efficiency, Lotta expects annual revenues to increase by \$425,000, and operating expenses to increase by \$170,000. The older machine, which was being depreciated at the straight-line rate of \$20,000/year, will be sold for \$30,000. What are the net cash flows for year 2? Assume the firm's marginal tax rate is 40% and that the year 2 depreciation rate is 24.49%.

Solution:
Year 2 depreciation = \$940,000(0.2449) = \$230,206
Change Dep (Yr. 2) = \$230,206 - \$20,000 = \$210,206
NCF2 = (\$425,000 - \$170,000 - \$210,206)(0.6) + \$210,206
= \$237,082

### Com-Cat is considering expanding their current production facility. This year Com-Cat had an operating income (EBIT) of \$760,000, interest expenses of \$120,000, depreciation expenses of \$45,000, and capital expenditures of \$160,000. Next year, after the expansion is completed, operating income is expected to be \$880,000, interest expenses will remain at \$120,000, but depreciation will increase to \$61,000. To support the expansion, cash is to expected to increase by \$5,000, accounts receivable by \$12,000, inventories by \$8,000, and accounts payable by \$7,000. What is the change in Com-Cat's net operating cash flows attributable to this project, if the tax rate is 40%?

Solution:
NCF = (\$880,000 - \$760,000)(1 - 0.40) + (\$61,000 - \$45,000)
- (\$5,000 + \$12,000 + \$8,000 - \$7,000) = \$70,000

Solution:
NPV = 28,000(PVIF0.12,5) - 100,000 = \$28,000(3.605) - 100,000 = \$940

### Using the profitability index, which of the following mutually exclusive projects should be accepted? Project A: NPV = \$6,000; NINV = \$50,000 Project B: NPV = \$10,000; NINV = \$120,000 Project C: NPV = \$8,000; NINV = \$80,000

Solution:
PIA = \$56/\$50 = 1.12
PIB = \$130/\$120 = 1.08
PIC = \$88/\$80 = 1.1
Therefore, choose project A

### Indexx, a maker of disease-detection systems based on biotechnology is considering purchasing some diagnostic equipment that costs \$380,000. Shipping and installation costs will be an additional \$30,000. The equipment will be depreciated based on a 3-year MACRS life. Revenues from the new equipment should be \$400,000 the first year and increase 15% each year over the expected 5-year economic life. Operating expenses should be \$250,000 the first year and these expenses will increase 10% each year. At the end of 5 years the equipment will be obsolete and have no salvage value. Should Indexx invest in this new equipment? Assume Indexx has a cost of capital of 15% and a marginal tax rate of 40%. Use the depreciation schedule listed below: (3 Year Depreciation Schedule: 33.33%, 44.45%, 14.81%, 7.41%)

Solution:
NCF1 = (400,000 - 250,000 - 136,653)(.6) + 136,653 = \$144,661
NCF2 = (460,000 - 275,000 - 182,245)(.6) + 182,245 = \$183,898
NCF3 = (529,000 - 302,500 - 60, 721)(.6) + 60,721 = \$160,188
NCF4 = (608,350 - 332,750 - 30, 381)(.6) + 30,381 = \$177,512
NCF5 = (699,603 - 366,025)(.6) = \$200,147
NPV = -\$410,000 + \$144,661(0.870) + \$183,898(0.756)
+ \$160,188(0.658) + \$177,512(0.572) + \$200,147(0.497)
= \$161,296

### G-III Apparel is considering increasing the size of a warehouse. The cost of the expansion is \$825,000 and the increase in inventories and accounts payable will be \$410,000 and \$360,000 respectively. G-III expects that the expansion will increase net cash flows by \$150,000 a year for the next 5 years and \$200,000 a year for years 6-12. G-III has a 14% cost of capital and a marginal tax rate of 35%. What is the NPV of the warehouse expansion?

Solution:
NPV = -\$825,000 - \$410,000 + \$360,000 + \$150,000(3.433) + \$200,000(5.216 - 3.433) +
\$50,000(0.270)
= \$10,050

\$116,681

### Should the following project be accepted if the cost of capital is 12%? Initial Investment is \$50,000 Years Cash Flows 1 \$25,000 2 \$35,000 3 \$55,000

Yes, because the internal rate of return is 48% which is more than 12%.

### Creative Furniture is considering two mutually exclusive projects that would automate part of their production facilities. Project A costs \$120,000 and would produce net cash flows of \$37,000 annually for 5 years. Project B also costs \$120,000 and will produce annual net cash flows of \$25,000 for 10 years. Creative's cost of capital is 11 percent. Using a replacement chain, which project should be chosen? Assume that in 5 years, Project A will still cost \$120,000 and produce 5 more years of \$37,000 annual net cash flows.

Project B. NPV is \$492 higher

Solution:
NPVB = -\$120,000 + \$25,000(5.889) = \$27,225
NPVA = -\$120,000 - \$120,000(.593) + \$37,000(5.889) = \$26,733
NPVB - NPVA = \$492

### Dorati Inc. is considering two mutually exclusive projects. Dorati used a 15% required rate of return to evaluate capital expenditure projects. If the two projects have the costs and cash flows shown below, using a replacement chain determine the NPV for each. Year Project S Project T 0 -\$70,000 -\$100,000 1 \$50,000 \$ 60,000 2 \$60,000 \$ 70,000 3 \$ 80,000 4 \$ 90,000 Assume in two years Project S will still cost \$70,000 and produce the same two years of cash flows.

Solution:
NPVT = -100,000 + 60,000(.870) + 70,000(.756) + 80,000(.658)
+ 90,000(.572) = \$109,240
NPVs = -70,000 - 70,000(.658) + 50,000(.870) + 60,000(.756)
+ 50,000(.658) + 60,000(.572) = 40,000

### Toy Manufacturers (TM) is considering two mutually exclusive machines to use in its manufacturing process. The net cash flows for each are given below: Year Axa Beta 0 -\$90,000 -\$105,000 1 45,000 35,000 2 45,000 35,000 3 45,000 35,000 4 35,000 5 35,000 If the cost of capital for TM is 13%, which machine should they purchase?

Solution:
NPVA = \$-90,000 + \$45,000(2.361) = \$16,245
NPVB = \$-105,000 + \$35,000(3.517) = \$18,095
EAAA = \$16,245/2.361 = \$6,881
EAAB = \$18,095/3.517 = \$5,145
NPVA = \$6,881/0.13 = \$52,931
NPVB = \$5,145/0.13 = \$39,577

### Marvec needs to replace an extruder and two replacements look good. Extruder A costs \$102,000 and has a 10 year life. Extruder B costs only \$56,000 but its expected life is 6 years. Extruder A will generate net cash flows of \$17,600 per year for 10 years and B will generate net cash flows of \$13,800 per year for 6 years. If Marvec's cost of capital is 11%, which extruder should be chosen and what is its NPV? Use equivalent annual annuities.

Solution:
NPVA = \$-102,000 + \$17,600(5.889) = \$1,646
NPVB = \$-56,000 + \$13,800(4.231) = \$2,388
EAAA = \$1,646/5.889 = \$279.50
EAAB = \$2,388/4.231 = \$564.41
NPVA = \$279.50/0.11 = \$2,541
NPVB = \$564.41/0.11 = \$5,131

### SCAN is a multi-divisional utility company. SCAN has four divisions with the following betas and proportions of the firm's total assets: Division Beta % of Assets Electric & Gas 0.85 60 Bus transportation 0.95 10 Real estate 1.40 25 Recreation 1.15 5 The risk-free rate is 8 percent and the market risk premium is 5 percent. If SCAN is considering a residential development, what should the firm use as its cost of equity in evaluating this project?

Solution:
ke = 0.08 + 1.40(0.05) = 0.15 or 15%

### The Chris-Kraft Co. is financed entirely with equity and the firm has a beta of 1.6. The current risk-free rate is 9.5 percent and the expected market return is 16 percent. What rate of return should Chris-Kraft require on a project of average risk?

Solution:
ke = 0.095 + 1.6(0.16 - 0.095) = 0.199 or 19.9%

### IKON is financed entirely with equity and its beta is 1.31. If the current risk-free rate is 6.25% and the expected market return is 12.8%, what is IKON's required rate of return on a project of average risk?

Solution:
ke = 6.25 + 1.31(12.8 - 6.25) = 14.83%

### The Chris-Kraft Co. is financed entirely with equity and the firm has a beta of 1.25. The current risk-free rate is 7 percent and the expected market return is 15 percent. Chris-Kraft is considering an investment project with a risk that matches the firm's average risk, requires a net investment of \$70,000, and has net cash flows of \$18,000 per year for 8 years. Should Chris-Kraft invest in the project?

Solution:
ke = 0.07 + 1.25(0.15 - 0.07) = 0.17
NPV = \$18,000(4.207) - \$70,000 = \$5,726

### M-tel is financed entirely with equity and the firm's stock has a beta of 0.85. M-tel is considering investing in a project that is expected to have a beta of 1.3.
