More Details:

Please see the file attached which has the questions and tables for questions.. I only need the answers to each question placed in the attached document. I do not need the work shown as this is now the 5th time I've asked for proper help and each time I'm wasting credits as tutors do not even input the answers and just leave it blank. If you are not going to put the answers into the document, then do not respond and waste my credits!!!

Question 1: (10 points). (Net present value calculation) Dowling Sportswear is considering building a new factory to produce aluminum baseball bats. This project would require an initial cash outlay of \$4,000,000 and would generate annual net cash inflows of \$900,000 per year for 7 years. Calculate the project's NPV using a discount rate of 5 percent. (Round to the nearest dollar.)

 a. If the discount rate is 5 percent, then the project's NPV is: \$

Question 2: (30 points). (Net present value calculation) Big Steve's, makers of swizzle sticks, is considering the purchase of a new plastic stamping machine. This investment requires an initial outlay of \$90,000 and will generate net cash inflows of \$19,000 per year for 11 years. To answer Choose an item questions, click on the orange text and use the pull down menu to select the best answer.

a. What is the project's NPV using a discount rate of 7 percent? (Round to the nearest dollar.)

 If the discount rate is 7 percent, then the project's NPV is: \$

Should the project be accepted?

The project Choose an item. accepted because the NPV is Choose an item. and therefore Choose an item. value to the firm.

b. What is the project's NPV using a discount rate of 16 percent?

 If the discount rate is 16 percent, then the project's NPV is: \$

Should the project be accepted?

The project Choose an item. accepted because the NPV is Choose an item. and therefore Choose an item. value to the firm.

If the project's required discount rate is 16%, then the project Choose an item. accepted because the IRR is Choose an item. Than the required discount rate.

c. What is this project's internal rate of return? (Round to two decimal places.)

 This project's internal rate of return is: %

Should the project be accepted? Why or why not?

If the project's required discount rate is 7%, then the project Choose an item. accepted because the IRR is Choose an item. the required discount rate.

If the project's required discount rate is 16%, then the project Choose an item. accepted because the IRR is Choose an item. the required discount rate.

Question 3: (15 points). (Related to Checkpoint 11.2) (Equivalent annual cost calculation) Barry Boswell is a financial analyst for Dossman Metal Works, Inc. and he is analyzing two alternative configurations for the firm's new plasma cutter shop. The two alternatives that are denoted A and B below perform the same task and although they each cost to purchase and install they offer very different cash flows. Alternative A has a useful life of 7 years whereas Alternative B will only last for 3 years. The after-tax cash flows from the two projects are as follows:

a. Calculate each project's equivalent annual cost (EAC) given a discount rate of 10 percent. (Round to the nearest cent.)

 a. Alternative A's equivalent annual cost (EAC) at a discount rate of 10% is: \$ b. Alternative B's equivalent annual cost (EAC) at a discount rate of 10% is \$

b. Which of the alternatives do you think Barry should select? Why? (Select the best choice below.)

This cannot be determined from the information provided. Alternative B should be selected because its equivalent annual cost is less per year than the annual equivalent cost for Alternative A. Alternative A should be selected because its equivalent annual cost is less per year than the annual equivalent cost for Alternative B. Alternative A should be selected because it has the highest NPV.  Cannor choose without comparing their IRRs.

Choose A because its NPV is higher.

Choose both because they both have positive NPVs. Choose B because its NPV is higher.
