You have recently been hired by ABC Corporation and your first assignment is to help them decide which of these two options should be pursued.  You would like to apply Capital Budgeting and Time Value of Money concepts you have learnt in FIN 301 to analyze the problem and present your recommendation to your boss, Ms. Jane Austen.

Conduct the analysis by calculating the following for each option:

  •  Net Present Value (NPV)
  • Internal Rate of Return (IRR)
  • Profitability Index (PI)
  • Payback Period (PB)
  • Crossover Rate

The company has a Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) (discount Rate) of 12%.  For this analysis, your boss John Doe asked you to calculate NPV at three different discount rates: 12% (the current WACC), 14% and 16%.

Things to turn in:

  • A one-page memo explaining the results of your analysis and your recommendation. The memo should include important results of your analysis such as a summary table or graph. The memo is limited to one page so be very selective on what information to include.
  • An Excel spreadsheet showing calculation of above at the 3 discount rates and graph on NPV Profile. Assume benchmark for payback period. Write =if( ) statements to offer dynamic decisions.
