Question 13-11
Project A
Initial Cost = \$15,000
Life of the project = 10 years
Annual net cash inflow = \$4,000
Salvage Value = \$0
Required rate of return = 16%
ItemYears
Amount of cash flow 16% factor Present Value of Cash flow Annual net cash flow 1 to 10\$4,000 4.833\$19,332
Intial Investment Now \$15,000 1\$15,000
Net Present Value (a-b)\$4,332

Project B
Initial Cost = \$15,000
Life of the project = 10 years
Cash inflow = \$6000 (60,000/10 years)
Salvage Value = \$0
Required rate of return 16%
ItemYears Amount of cash flow 16% factor Present Value of Cash flow Cash flow (a) 10\$6,000 0.227\$1,362
Initial Investment (b)Now \$15,000 1\$15,000
Net Present Value (a-b)(\$13,638)

Bases on the same minimum required rate of return I would recommend that Sharp Company should invest in project A

Question 13-12
1.Payback period
Purchase Cost = \$180,000
Annual cost saving that will be provided by the equipment = \$37,500 Life of the equipment = 12 years
Payback period = Investment required / Annual net cash inflow = \$180000 / \$37500
= 4.8
Since all proposals with a payback period of more than 4 years have been rejected, the equipment would not be purchased

2.Simple rate of return
Annual Incremental revenue \$37,500
Annual depreciation (\$180,000 - 0 )/12 (\$15,000)
Annual incremental net operating \$22,500

Simple rate of return = Annual incremental net operating income / Initial Investment = \$22,500/\$180,000
= 12.50%

Since the simple rate of return (12.50%) is less than the required rate of return (14%), the equipment should not be bought.
