The project should be rejected as it gives a negative NPV and its internal rate of return is lower than the firm’s cost of capital.

The superstar should be signed, since the decision results in a positive net present value. The investment’s internal rate of return is also higher than the company’s cost of capital.

No.9

The rate that should be accepted, is the one that gives a higher present vale or a higher net present value out of the two projects

To get the present value use the formula

            PV A= A* PVIFA r%, n

Project  1

PV factor for the first 5 years using 5% rate= 4.3295

PV factor for the 20 years using 5% rate = 12.4622

Difference= 12.4622-4.3295=8.1327

PV= $20,000,000*8.1327

            =$ 162,654,207

NPV = 162,654,207-100,000,000

            $ 62,654,207

PV for the first 5 years using 12% rate= 3.6078

PV factor for the 20 years using 12% rate= 7.469

Difference= 7.469-3.6078= 3.8616

PV= $ 20,000,000*3.8616

= $77,232,872.49

NPV = $100,000,000- 77,232,872.49

            $22,767,127.51

It can be seen that if the 5% rate of return is used, a higher present value or net present value is obtained. For this reason, the 5% rate should be used instead of 12%.
