Capital Budgeting Analysis A project in South Korea requires an initial investment of 2 billion South Korean won. The project is expected to generate net cash flows to the subsidiary of 3 billion won and 4 billion won in the two years of operation, respectively. The project has no salvage value. The current value of the won is 1,100 won per U.S. dollar, and the value of the won is expected to remain constant over the next two years. What is the NPV of this project if the required rate of return is 13 percent? Repeat part (a), except assume that the value of the won is expected to be 1,200 won per U.S. dollar after two years. Further assume that the funds are blocked and that the parent company will be able to remit them back to the United States only after two years. How does this affect the NPV of the project?
