Description

#### Instructions

Answer the following questions and complete the following problems, as applicable.

You may solve the following problems algebraically, or you may use a financial calculator or Excel spreadsheet. If you choose to solve the problems algebraically, be sure to show your computations. If you use a financial calculator, show your input values. If you use an Excel spreadsheet, show your input values and formulas.

Note: In addition to your solution to each computational problem, you must show the supporting work leading to your solution to receive credit for your answer.

• Question 1:
• Proficient-level: Describe the Net Present Value (NPV) method for determining a capital budgeting project's desirability. What is the acceptance benchmark when using NPV?
• Distinguished-level: Identify the NPV method's strengths and weaknesses.
• Question 2:
• Proficient-level: What is the payback period statistic? What is the acceptance benchmark when using the payback period statistic?
• Distinguished-level: Identify what problem of the Payback Period method is corrected by using the Discounted Payback Period method.
• Question 3:
• Proficient-level: Describe the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) method for determining a capital budgeting project's desirability. What is the acceptance benchmark when using IRR?
• Distinguished-level: Explain how the NPV and IRR methods are similar and how they are different.
• Question 4:
• Proficient-level: Describe the Modified Internal Rate of Return (MIRR) method for determining a capital budgeting project's desirability. What are MIRR's strengths and weaknesses?
• Distinguished-level: Explain the differences in the reinvestment rate assumption that distinguishes MIRR from IRR.
• Question 5:
• Proficient-level: Compute the NPV statistic for Project Y and tell [advise] whether the firm should accept or reject the project with the cash flows shown in the chart if the appropriate cost of capital is 12 percent.
• Distinguished-level: Explain how decreases in the cost of capital lead to an increase in the number of approved projects.

#### Project Y

Time 0 1 2 3 4
Cash Flow -\$8,000 \$3,350 \$4,180 \$1,520 \$300

(Cornett, Adair, & Nofsinger, 2016, p. 332).

• Question 6:
• Proficient-level: Compute the payback period statistic for Project A and recommend whether the firm should accept or reject the project with the cash flows shown in the chart if the maximum allowable payback is four years.
• Distinguished-level: If the discounted payback period were computed, identify if it would be less than, equal to, or greater than the non-discounted payback period.

#### Project A

Time 0 1 2 3 4 5
Cash Flow -\$1,000 \$350 \$480 \$520 \$300 \$100

(Cornett, Adair, & Nofsinger, 2016).
