Project A :100,000/32,000 = 3.125 years

Project B : 100,000/200,000 = .5 4 years + .5 years= 4.5 years

12b. What is each project’s net present value?

For project A, the projects net present value is $100,000 the initial investment overhead of the project is a negative expenditure because it is an expense to the company. Over the next five years the group expects to add the present annual value of $32,000, the return rate will be 11% utilizing the annuity table. The factor will be 3.696 at 11% for five years. To calculate the cash inflow, multiply the annual $32,000 by 3.696 at 11% to equal $118.272. Over a five year period the total cash inflow is $118,272 with a net value of $18,272 for project A. Net present value = $118,272 - $100,000 = $18,272

The first four years for project B, there was no cash flow. In year five there was $200,000 in cash inflow. To calculate the present value of the $200,000 for five years, now at 11, utilize the present value of $1.00 table. The result factor of the table is 0.593. The present value of $200,000 in five years at 11% calculates to be $200,000 multiplied by 0.593, which equals $118,600. The net present value for project B is $18,600. Net present value = $118,600 - $100,000 = $18,600

The cash flow associated with these projects are as follows: | Year | Project A | Project B | | | | 0 | - 100,000 | - 100,000 | | | | 1 | 32,000 | - | | | | 2 | 32,000 | - | | | | 3 | 32,000 | - | | | | 4 | 32,000 | - | | | | 5 | 32,000 | 200,000 | | | | | Project A | Project B | | | | IRR | 18.03% | 14.87% | | | |
