Step 1

a) For the firm to accept a project, it will first determine the Net Present Value (NPV) of the project. If the NPV is positive, the project should be accepted.

In this case, first cash flow (CF1) will be at the end of the next year and would then continue to grow (g) at a rate of 4% forever.

According to the Gordon Growth Model, present value (PV0) of all the cash flows could be calculated as below:

Step 2

Solving the equation as below, the present value of all the cash inflows is \$1,357,143

Step 3

Net Present Value is calc...
