13. Optimal capital budget and divisional risk Answer: c Diff: E

Find the WACCs using both John’s and Becky’s methods. (WACC = ks because

there is no debt).

John’s WACC for Division B based on overall company’s beta:

k = kRF + RPM(b)

k = 5% + 5%(1.2)

k = 5% + 6%

k = 11%.

Therefore, John would only choose Project 1, because it is the only project

whose IRR exceeds its cost of capital. Consequently, the firm’s capital

budget (based on John’s WACC) is only \$400 million.

Becky’s WACC for Division B:

k = kRF + RPM(b)

k = 5% + 5%(0.9)

k = 5% + 4.5%

k = 9.5%.

Becky would choose projects 1, 2, 3, and 4 because all of these projects have

an IRR that exceeds the Division’s 9.5 percent cost of capital. Based on

Becky’s WACC, the firm’s capital budget would be \$1,270 million (\$400 + \$300 +

\$250 + \$320). Therefore, the firm’s capital budget based on Becky’s WACC is

\$870 million (\$1,270 - \$400) larger than the one based on John’s WACC.

14. Replacement chain Answer: b Diff: E

Step 1: Determine each project’s cash flows during the 4-year period.

Year Project A Cash Flows Project B Cash Flows

0 (\$120,000) (\$100,000)

1 80,000 41,000

2 80,000 – 125,000 = (45,000) 41,000

3 80,000 41,000

4 80,000 41,000

Step 2: Determine each project’s NPV by entering the cash flows into the

cash flow register and using 10 percent for the cost of capital.

NPVA = \$30,283.45  \$30,283.

NPVB = \$29,964.48  \$29,964.

Therefore, Jayhawk should select Project A since it adds more

value.

36. New project NPV Answer: e Diff: E N

We can solve for NPV by entering the following data into the cash flow

register.

CF0 = -25000000; CF1 = 10000000; CF2 = 10000000; CF3 = 10000000; CF4 =

10000000; I/YR = 10; and then solve for NPV = \$6,698,654  \$6,700,000.

37. Investment timing option Answer: c Diff: M N

Fair will only invest if market conditions are favorable, hence the 20%

chance of receiving \$2 million annual cash flows is really 0% because

the NPV < 0. Therefore, the NPV of the project as of t = 1, can be

found using the calculator and entering the following data:

CF0 = -26000000; CF1 = 12000000; CF2 = 12000000; CF3 = 12000000; CF4 =

12000000; I/YR = 10; and then solve for NPV = \$12,038,385. But, there

is only an 80% chance of this occurring so expected NPV = 0.8 

\$12,038,385 = \$9,630,708.
