ACC206 Week Five Problems

Please complete the following 5 exercises below in

either Excel or a word document (but must be single document). You must show

your work where appropriate (leaving the calculations within Excel cells is

acceptable). Save the document, and submit it in the appropriate week using the

Assignment Submission button.

1. Basic present value calculations

Calculate the present value

of the following cash flows, rounding to the nearest dollar:

a.

A single cash inflow of

$12,000 in five years, discounted at a 12% rate of return.

b.

An annual receipt of $16,000

over the next 12 years, discounted at a 14% rate of return.

c.

A single receipt of $15,000

at the end of Year 1 followed by a single receipt of $10,000 at the end of Year

3. The company has a 10% rate of return.

d.

An annual receipt of $8,000 for three years followed by a

single receipt of $10,000 at the end of Year 4. The company has a 16% rate of

return.

2. Cash flow calculationsand net present

value

On January 2, 20X1, Bruce Greene

invested $10,000 in the stock market and purchased 500 shares of Heartland

Development, Inc. Heartland paid cash dividends of $2.60 per share in 20X1 and

20X2; the dividend was raised to $3.10 per share in 20X3. On December 31, 20X3,

Greene sold his holdings and generated proceeds of $13,000. Greene uses the

net-present- value method and desires a 16% return on investments.

a.

Prepare a chronological list of

the investment’s cash flows. *Note:*Greene is entitled to the 20X3

dividend.

b.

Compute the investment’s net present

value, rounding calculations to the nearest dollar.

c.

Given the results of part (b),

should Greene have acquired the Heartland stock? Briefly explain.

3.

Straightforwardnet present value and

internal rate of return

The City of Bedford is

studying a 600-acre site on Route 356 for a new landfill. The startup cost has

been calculated as follows:

Purchase cost: $450 per acre

Site preparation: $175,000

The site can be used for 20

years before it reaches capacity. Bedford, which shares a facility in Bath

Township with other municipalities, estimates that the new location will save

$40,000 in annual operating costs.

a.

Should the landfill be

acquired if Bedford desires an 8% return on its investment? Use the

net-present-value method to determine your answer.

4.

Straightforward net-present-value and payback computations

STL Entertainment is considering the

acquisition of a sight-seeing boat for summer tours along the Mississippi

River. The following information is available:

Cost of boat | $500,000 |

Service life | 10 summer seasons |

Disposal value at the end of 10 seasons | $100,000 |

Capacity per trip | 300 passengers |

Fixed operating costs per season (including straight-line depreciation) | $160,000 |

Variable operating costs per trip | $1,000 |

Ticket price | $5 per passenger |

All operating costs, except

depreciation, require cash outlays. On the basis of similar operations in other

parts of the country, management anticipates that each trip will be sold out

and that 120,000 passengers will be carried each season. Ignore income taxes.

*Instructions:*

By using the net-present-value

method, determine whether STL Entertainment should acquire the boat. Assume a

14% desired return on all investments- round calculations to the nearest

dollar.

5.

Equipment replacement decision

Columbia Enterprises is studying the

replacement of some equipment that originally cost $74,000. The equipment is

expected to provide six more years of service if $8,700 of major repairs are

performed in two years. Annual cash operating costs total $27,200. Columbia can

sell the equipment now for $36,000; the estimated residual value in six years

is $5,000.

New equipment is available that will

reduce annual cash operating costs to $21,000. The equipment costs $103,000,

has a service life of six years, and has an estimated residual value of

$13,000. Company sales will total $430,000 per year with either the existing or

the new equipment. Columbia has a minimum desired return of 12% and depreciates

all equipment by the straight-line method.

*Instructions:*

a.

By using the net-present-value

method, determine whether Columbia should keep its present equipment or acquire

the new equipment. Round all calculations to the nearest dollar, and ignore

income taxes.

b.

Columbia’s management feels

that the time value of money should be considered in all long-term decisions.

Briefly discuss the rationale that underlies management’s belief.
