Question

Help needed

Suppose I am the CEO of a 100%-equity-financed company, Boudro-o-Dirt, Inc., that

re-builds levees. I am considering taking on a project in New Orleans that will require a large initial investment on my firm’s part. Boudro-o-Dirt currently has 50,000 shares of equity outstanding and a $30 share price. The firm’s cost of equity is 12.5% and the marginal tax rate is 34%.

Having worked for a firm that went bankrupt several years ago, mainly due to a heavy debt-load, I have a very negative attitude towards the use of debt in Lots’ capital structure. However, I also know that I could start borrowing at 8%.

I have heard that you just read a couple of chapters about capitalizing with debt, so I decide to hire you to advise me about financing all or part of this project with debt. What should I be aware of and concerned about as I make my decision about 1) the pros and cons of using debt or not, and 2) how much debt to use?

Question

You are executing your plan for a new product development project. Your project is running smoothly. You

are meeting the customer’s expectations, and delivering on time and on budget. During a status meeting with Senior Management about the status of your project, they are very happy about your progress and ask you to successfully end your project one month earlier than planned in order to beat the competition to market. What is the best response:

a) You want to be sure you keep the Senior Managers happy with you so that they consider you for the next promotion opportunity. You tell them you will work with the team to get a new schedule in place to meet the earlier date.

b) You tell Senior Management that this is a change to the project and needs to be documented in a Change Order, analyzed for the impact to the budget and scope, and reviewed by the Change Control Board before you can confirm if it is feasible and any additional budget required.

c) You tell the Senior Management that you understand the importance of this request and that you need a couple of days to research the schedule and plan to determine the feasibility of the request and will get back with them.

d) You realize that getting to market faster than the competitor is critically important to the business, so you agree to deliver the project earlier and will work with the team to figure out a new schedule to get it done.

opening a new warehouse, and the key data are shown below. The company owns the building that would be used, and it could sell it for $100,000 after taxes if it decides not to open the new warehouse. The equipment for the project would be depreciated by the straight-line method over the project’s 3-year life, after which it would be worth nothing and thus it would have a zero salvage value. No new working capital would be required, and revenues and other operating costs would be constant over the project’s 3-year life. What is the project’s NPV? (Hint: Cash flows are constant in Years 1-3.)

Question

You are a Project Manager in the Execution phase of your project. You realize that your project schedule

performance is getting worse and is outside the variance limits identified in the Quality Plan. Your best course of action is

a) Determine the root cause of the schedule delay and if the project can be brought back within variance. If not, then submit a change order for review with the CCB.

b) Tell your team that you need to crash the remaining project schedule in order to meet the original schedule commitments for the Stakeholders that were approved in the baseline plan.

c) Ask your Sponsor for some additional budget because the schedule has been delayed and you will need more money in order to complete the project.

d) Adjust the variance limits in the Quality Plan so that your project is performing within the allowable variance.

One important consideration is that the future changes in interest rates could make expected future cash flows

Question

One important consideration is that the future changes in interest rates could make expected future cash flows

disappear, especially if the risk is non-diversified. The fact that the nondiversifiable risk has a wide range is also a key factor in the question.

Non-diversifiable risk essentially has two parts; operating risk and financial risk. The operating risk is based on the firm’s assets while the financial risk is primarily based on the firm’s capital structure (how the firm is financed).

In what ways do operating risk and financial risk impact the required return (cost of capital) of a potential project?

Problem 1 Johnson Jets is considering two mutually exclusive projects Project A has an upfront cost of $124 000

Question

Problem 1:Johnson Jets is considering two mutually exclusive projects. Project A has an up-front cost of $124,000

(CF0 = -124,000), and produces positive after-tax cash inflows of $30,000 a year at the end of each of the next six years. Project B has an up-front cost of $59,000(CF0 = -59,000) and produces after-tax cash inflows of $20,000 a year at the end of the next four years. Assuming the cost of capital is 10.5%,

1. Compute the equivalent annual annuity of project A in box 1. Round the EAA to a whole dollar without the dollar sign or comma, e.g., 3452 (non-negative number)

2. Compute the equivalent annual annity of project B in box 2. The same format as box 1.

3. Decide which project to undertake in box 3, either Project A or Project B.

Problem 2:You are evaluating the proposed acquisition of a new computer. The computer’s price is $ 7 0,000, and it falls into the MACRS 3-year class. Purchase of the computer would require an increase in net operating working capital of $2,000. The computer would increase the firm’s before-tax revenues by $ 28 ,000 per year but would also increase operating costs by $ 18 ,000 per year. The computer is expected to be used for 3 years and then be sold for $25,000. The firm’s marginal tax rate is 40 percent, and the project’s cost of capital is 14 percent.
