# FIN622 - Corporate Finance Assignment no 1 closing date May 21, 2014.

FIN622 - Corporate Finance

PROBLEM:
ABC Company is considering the acquisition of a machine to improve its production. The company has to make a choice between two types of machine A and B. Each machine will have a 4-year life with no salvage value.
Cost of capital of the firm is 14%. Initial investments required to purchase and install the machines A and B, are PKR 28,700 and PKR 27,050 respectively. Machine A will generate an inflow of PKR 10,000 each year while Machine B is expected to generate cash inflows in the following manner.

Year          Cash Inflows (PKR)
1               11,000
2               10,000
3               9,000
4                8,000

Required:

Calculate NPV and IRR for both options. Which machine should be preferred and why?

Note:
For calculating IRR you are required to use “Trial and Error Method” along with “Interpolation Technique/Formula”. In this particular regard, you are advised to consult PPT slideshow “Finding IRR is no more difficult” uploaded in the lesson contents of Lesson # 10.

Yea check kar guyz...values is formule mein dalna.. then A machine ka IRR 14.74% aae ga or B machine ka 16.13%...SO hum machine B ko prefer karen ge kiu k us ka NPV b ziada hai means 1105.18 and IRR be reqired rate se zaida hai which is 16.13%...Hope you got the answer

Gd Job Motay :P

i used this method to calculate NPV can anyone guide me either it is correct .

NPV Calculation

For Machine A :

 00 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Total Cash Inflow -28,700 10,000 10,000 10,000 10,000 11,300 Discount Cash Flow (14%) 10,000/1+0.14 =8,771.90 10,000/(1+0.14)^2 =7,694.67 10,000/(1+0.14)^3 =6,749.71 10,000/(1+0.14)^4 =5,920.80 29,137.1

NPV = -28,700+8,771.9+7,694.64+6,749.71+5,920.8

= 437.05

Nothing wrong with the calculations, but if you use annuity method it will have some positive impact on the instructor.

Great Work

IRR of Machine B

 Time Cash Flow Discount 10% Discount 20% 00 -27050 -27050 -27050 01 11,000 10000 9166.67 02 10,000 8264.46 6944.44 03 9,000 6761.83 5208.33 04 8,000 5464.10 3858.02 NPV 3440.39 -1872.54

IRR = a+ [{A/ (A-B)} * (b-a)] %

IRR = 10 + [{3440.39 / (3440.39 + 1872.54)} * (20-10) %

IRR = 10 + {(3440.39 / 5,312.93) * 10} %

IRR = 10 + (0.65* 10)

IRR = 16.5 %

i hope me done right calculation, Awais Shamim

maree bhi same aye ha

Yes ! It Is . Great Job Khiradiqbal

Dear Awais
