2. Practice Questions

a) After spending \$3 million on research, Better Mousetraps has developed a new trap. The project requires an initial investment in plant and equipment of \$6 million. This investment will be depreciated straight-line over five years to a value of zero, but, when the project comes to an end in five years, the equipment can in fact be sold for \$500,000. The firm believes that working capital at each date must be maintained at 10% of next year's forecasted sales. Production costs are estimated at \$1.50 per trap and the traps will be sold for \$4 each. (There are no marketing expenses.) Sales forecasts are given in the following table. The firm pays tax at 35% and the required return on the project is 12%. What is the NPV? |

b). XYZ Ltd is considering expanding its operation requires the purchase of a new industrial oven. The machine cost \$1,000,000 and has an economic life of 5 years. It will be depreciated for tax purposes at 10% p.a. of initial cost. Extra inventories and other working capital will be needed at a cost of \$80,000. Inflation is expected to be 5% p.a. for the next five years. The working capital will be unaffected by inflation. The expected salvage value of the machine is \$100,000 in year 5. The annual net operating cash flows before tax (in current values) that XYZ expects to receive is \$334,000 each year. The company tax rate is expected to be 30% over the period of the project. The opportunity of capital is 10%. What is NPV?
