# 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.

g han B to sab ka e preferrd a raha hai mujy laga ap A ka bolo ge

FOR MACHINE A

 TIME CASH FLOW DISCOUNTED CASH FLOW (10%) DISCOUNTED CASH FLOW (20%) 00 -28,700 -28,700 -28,700 01 10,000 9,090.90 8,333.33 02 10,000 8,264.46 6,944.44 03 10,000 7,513.14 5,787.03 04 10,000 6,830.13 4,822.53 NPV 11,300 2,998.53 -2,812.67

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

IRR = 10 + [{2,998.53 / (2,998.53 + 2,812.67)} * (20-10) %

IRR = 10 + {(2,998.53 / 5,811.2) * 10} %

IRR = 10 + (0.51 * 10)

IRR = 15.1 %

Using same procedure, go for machine B as well

And Final Decesion is

v  NPV prefers “Machine B” to “Machine A

v  IRR prefers “Machine A” to “Machine B

wah g wah paki pakai kheer he day di hai

:) Ta k smjh aa jae na :)

gud

Machine B

npv 10950

10d.f=7818.5

20per =1426.01

mara Irr =10.122

aa raha  ha kaya ya thek ha?

plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz help me

bhi tell me

Machine B

npv 10950

10d.f=7818.5

20per =1426.01

mara Irr =10.122

aa raha  ha kaya ya thek ha?

plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz help me

Ni Azmay U Are Wrong. IRR me Hm NPV DF ko Nil Krna Hota Ya -ve Me Krna Hota. agr 10 d.f pe 7818 hai to 20 pe usy 0 ya -ve hona chahye. as I Shown above

IRR also prefer B to A

because IRR of machine A = 15.1% and IRR of machine B = 16.4 % and both are greater than 14%. So we should prefer machine with higher IRR.

what u say???

You are right, higher IRR will be preferred like higher NPV. Onething more...which machine have less/more initial investment, also consider this factor also.

Onething more...which machine have less/more initial investment, also consider this factor

Look I am writing in a general way

You have two options to invest, 100 Rs and 150 Rs

100 give you low NPV/IRR and 150 give you higher NPV/IRR

but you will also compare the size of investment ke aap ke 150 hai b ke nahi.

you can ignore this factor for the current discussion.
