1. The TecOne Corporation is about to begin producing and selling its prototype product. Annual cash flows for the next five years are forecasted as:

YearCash Flow
1 -\$50,000
2 -\$20,000
3\$100,000
4\$400,000
5\$800,000

A. Assume annual cash flows are expected to remain at the \$800,000 level after Year 5 (i.e., Year 6 and thereafter). If TecOne investors want a 40 percent rate of return on their investment, calculate the venture’s present value.

B. Now assume that the Year 6 cash flows are forecasted to be \$900,000 in the stepping stone year and are expected to grow at an 8 percent compound annual rate thereafter. Assuming that the investors still want a 40 percent rate of return on their investment, calculate the venture’s present value.

C. Now extend Part B one step further. Assume that the required rate of return on the investment will drop from 40 percent to 20 percent beginning in Year 6 to reflect a drop in operating or business risk. Calculate the venture’s present value.

2.Assume the forecasted cash flows presented in Problem 1 for the TecOne Corporation venture also hold for the LowTec venture. However, investors in LowTec have an expected rate of return of 30 percent on their investment until Year 6 when the rate of return is expected to drop to 18 percent. The perpetuity growth rate for cash flows after Year 6 is expected to be 7 percent.

A. Determine the present value for the LowTec venture.

B. If an outside investor offers to invest \$1,500,000 dollars today, what percentage ownership in LowTec should be given to the new investor?
