NAME:

Telecom Italia is considering the investment in a capital project. The initial cost in year 0 is \$149,000 to be depreciated straight line over 5 years to an expected salvage value of \$15,000. The firm’s tax rate is 35% and it has an 11% cost of capital (the firm’s discount rate, or "hurdle" rate). For this project an additional investment in working capital of \$12,000 is required and it will be recovered in full at the end of the project’s life. The project will generate additional revenues of \$64,000 in year 1 and these revenues will grow annually at a rate of 10%. The additional expenses of the project will be \$15,000 in year 1 and will grow annually at 8%. What is the NPV and the IRR of the Project? Would you accept or reject this problem? Precisely state the reason why.
