The cost of equity is 7 % and debt is 6 %interest. Therefore, WACC is calculated as :1
= 170000 / 170000 + 170000 * 7 % + 170000 / 170000 + 170000 * 6 %= 3.50 + 3= 6.50 %c) Calculate the Net Present Value (NPV) of the project, using the WACC computed above.NPV is calculated by taking risk premium rate as well. Therefore, Cost of capital = 6.5 %+ 1.5 % = 8 % which is the discount factor to be used for calculating NPV of the investmentproposal. NPV = Total discounted cash inflows – initial investmentYear InflowOutflownet cashflowPV factor@ 8%Discountedcashinflow 110000025000750000.92669444.4475000210000025000750000.85764300.41150000310000025000750000.79459537.42225000410000025000750000.73555127.24300000510000025000750000.68151043.74375000610000025000750000.63047262.72450000Totaldiscountedcash inflow 346715.97Initial investment340000NPV6715.97NPV is positive.d) Calculate the Accounting Rate of Return (ARR)Year InflowOutflownet cashflowPV factor@ 8%Discountedcash inflow 110000025000750000.92669444.4475000210000025000750000.85764300.41150000310000025000750000.79459537.422250002
