Harris Seafood Question Number One (1) Value the processing plant proposal. Ignore the Industrial Revenue Bond financing. Assume: Market Risk Premium 8.8%, Riskless Rate 11.41%, and Harris Long Term Debt Rate 13.5%. Our approach to valuing the processing plant can easily be decomposed into three distinct steps first, find the
a. $2,898.4 b. $3,164.5 c. $3,152.29 d. $3,554.3 e. $3,841.2 Use the following information for questions 13-16. You are looking at purchasing a widget producing machine that will cost $11 million which will be salvageable in 9 years for $3 million. The machine will increase revenues by $7.5 million per year and will fall into the 30% CCA bracket. You can lease the machine for $2.75 million per year. Your pre-tax cost of debt is 8.5%. Your corporate tax rate is 35%.
EEC calculated the amount of time involved the anticipation of its cost ($3 million). The timeline in recovering their cost of investment ($2 million) initially for the foundation of this investment any profit made in the future of this investment will be justified as a profit for the company. If EEC can anticipate a fast return on its investment it is a profitable wise decision in making the investment financial, it is considered to be an easier way of formulating investments financially. On the basis of one year all cash flows is added together equal to the sum of $2 million originally invested, then it is divided by the annual cash flow of $500,000. The calculation of the payback period would equal four years. After this time frame any financial proceeds will be considered profitable for the company. I conclude that the timeframe is adequate in comparison of the investment in this worthwhile investment financial venture for the company.
• An investment The Best Manufacturing Company is considering a new investment. Financial projections for the investment are tabulated here. The corporate tax rate is 38 percent. Assume all sales revenue is received in cash, all operating costs and income taxes are paid in cash, and all cash flows occur at the end of the year. All net working capital is recovered at the end of the project.
9. You want to purchase a business with the following cash flows. How much would you pay for this business today assuming you needed a 14% return to make this deal?
Star Appliance Case Study Situation: Star Appliance is looking to expand their product line and is considering three different projects: dishwashers, garbage disposals, and trash compactors. We want to determine which project would be worth doing by determining if they will add value to Star. Thus, the project(s) that will add the most value to Star Appliance will be worth pursuing. The current hurdle rate of 10% should be re-evaluated by finding the weighted average cost of capital (WACC). Then by forecasting the cash flows of each project and discounting them by the WACC to find the net present value, or by solving for the internal rate of return, we should be able to see which projects Star should undertake.
Thus, by year three the company will be making a profit off the investment as year three is 86.73 million profit by 55.35 cost giving the company a 31.38 million dollar surplus. Generally, a period of payback of three year or less is acceptable (Reference Entry) causing this project to be viable based off the payback analysis. Although, these calculations are flawed. The reason for this is because the time value of money is not taken into effect when calculating payback periods which is where IRR can further assist in a more realistic financial picture (Reference Entry).
Free cash flows of the project for next five years can be calculated by adding depreciation values and subtracting changes in working capital from net income. In 2010, there will be a cash outflow of $2.2 million as capital expenditure. In 2011, there will be an additional one time cash outflow of $300,000 as an advertising expense. Using net free cash flow values for next five years and discount rate for discounting, NPV for the project comes out to be $2907, 100. The rate of return at which net present value becomes zero i.e.

After year 5, they cash flow will pick up where it left off and increase even higher until they sell the company. The IRR will be around 429%. And the value created from the small investment will be just under $45 million in only a 7 year period.
The use of an accounting rate of return also underscores a project 's true future profitability because returns are calculated from accounting statements that list items at book or historical values and are, thus, backward-looking. According to the ARR, cash flows are positive due to the way the return has been tabulated with regard to returns on funds employed. The Payback Period technique also reflects that the project is positive and that initial expenses will be retrieved in approximately 7 years. However, the Payback method treats all cash flows as if they are received in the same period, i.e. cash flows in period 2 are treated the same as cash flows received in period 8. Clearly, it ignores the time value of money and is not the best method employed. Conversely, the IRR and NPV methods reflect that The Super Project is unattractive. IRR calculated is less then the 10% cost of capital (tax tabulated was 48%). NPV calculations were also negative. We accept the NPV method as the optimal capital budgeting technique and use its outcome to provide the overall evidence for our final decision on The Super Project. In this case IRR provided the same rejection result; therefore, it too proved its usefulness. Despite that, IRR is not the most favorable method because it can provide false results in the case where multiple negative
After calculating the Total Cash Flow for all three scenarios, the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) and Net Present Value (NPV) for the project can be calculated as well. See Question 3 for details regarding WACC calculation. The IRR and NPV for each scenario are shown in Table 4 below:
The detail calculation refers exhibit 1. Scenario 1 which resembles the steady state has a nominal cash flow of 2.5 million. The NPV of scenario 1 is 118,245.21 with an IRR of 8.59%. In scenario 2 the expected cash flow is (2,500,000*1.3) with an NPV of 2,202,737.72 and IRR 16.44%. Scenario 3 has an expected cash flow of (2,500,000*0.85) with an NPV of -960,507.80 and IRR of 4.25%. Taking the three scenarios into account, an expected value of NPV that incorporates the probabilities of each scenario needs to be considered.
