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.
