CHAPTER 15 CAPITAL BUDGETING 21. a. Payback = \$3,000,000 ÷ \$600,000 per year = 5 years b. Year 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

The payback is eight years plus [(3,000,000 – 2,700,000) ÷ 400,000] or 8.75 years. 22. a. Investment = \$140,000 + \$180,000 = \$320,000 Year Amount Cumulative Amount 1 \$70,000 \$ 70,000 2 78,000 148,000 3 72,000 220,000 4 56,000 276,000 5 50,000 326,000 6 48,000 374,000 7 44,000 418,000 Payback = 4 years + [(\$320,000 – \$276,000) ÷ \$50,000] = 4.9 years Based on the payback criterion, Houston Fashions should not invest in the proposed product line. b. Yes. Houston Fashions should also use a discounted cash flow technique so as to consider both the time value of money and the cash flows that occur after the payback period. 23.

Based on the NPV, this is an unacceptable investment. 24. a. The contribution margin of each part is \$1 (or \$7.50 – \$6.50) Contribution margin per year = \$1  100,000 = \$100,000 Point in Time 0 1–8 1–8 NPV

b. Based on the NPV, this is not an acceptable investment. c. Other considerations would include whether refusing to produce this part for the customer would cause a loss of other business from that customer. The company should also consider going back to the customer and asking for a higher price that would cause the project to have a positive NPV. 25. PI = PV of cash inflows ÷ PV of cash outflows = (\$18,000 + \$240,000) ÷ \$240,000 = 1.08 26. a. PV of inflows: \$91,000  6.4177 = \$584,011 PV of investment: \$600,000 PI = \$584,011 ÷ \$600,000 = 0.97 b. Cedar City Public Transportation should not add the bus route because the PI is less than 1.00. c. To be acceptable, a project must generate a PI of at least 1; a PI greater than 1 equates to an NPV > 0. 27. a. PV = Discount factor × Annual cash inflow \$700,000 = Discount factor  \$144,000 Discount factor = \$700,000 ÷ \$144,000 = 4.8611 The IRR is 13 percent (rounded to the nearest whole percent). b. Yes. The IRR on this proposal is greater than the firm’s hurdle rate of 7 percent. c. \$700,000 = 5.9713  Annual cash flow Annual cash flow = \$700,000 ÷ 5.9713 Annual cash flow = \$117,227 28. a. PV = Discount factor × Annual cash inflow \$1,800,000 = Discount factor  \$300,000 Discount factor = \$1,800,000 ÷ \$300,000 = 6.0000 The IRR is 10.5 percent (rounded to the nearest half percent). The project is acceptable because the IRR exceeds the discount rate.

b. The main qualitative factors would be the effect of the technology on the perceived quality of the food that is processed by the new machinery. An additional consideration would be the effect of the technology on employees, particularly if the investment would cause layoffs. 29. Investment cost = \$375,000 × Discount factor for 14%, 7 years = \$375,000 × 4.2883 = \$1,608,113 NPV = \$375,000 × Discount factor (10%, 7 years) – \$1,608,113 = (\$375,000 × 4.8684) – \$1,608,113 = \$217,537 30. a. Annual depreciation = \$1,000,000 ÷ 8 years = \$125,000 per year Tax benefit = \$125,000  0.30 = \$37,500 PV = \$37,500  5.7466 = \$215,498 b.

In the final year, the remaining undepreciated cost is expensed.

c. The depreciation benefit computed in (b) exceeds that computed in (a) solely because of the time value of money. The depreciation method in (b) allows for faster recapture of the cost; therefore, there is less discounting of the future cash flows. 35.

= \$848,015 + \$112,000 = \$960,015 e. The company should consider the quality of work performed by the machine compared to the quality of work performed by the individuals; the reliability of the mechanical process compared to the manual process; and perhaps most importantly, the effect on worker morale and the ethical considerations in displacing 14 workers. 48. a. Payback period = \$140,000 ÷ (\$47,500 – \$8,500) = 3.6 years The project does not meet the payback criterion. b. Discount factor = Investment ÷ Annual cash flow = \$140,000 ÷ \$39,000 = 3.5897 Discount factor of 3.5897 indicates IRR  4 % This is an unacceptable IRR. c. Foster should consider two main factors: (1) the effect of the computer system on tax return accuracy and quality of service delivered to clients and (2) the effect of firing one employee on both the dismissed employee and the remaining employees.
