Exercise 2
a.
The present value is P7,000.
b.
No, an investment of P7,000 will no longer result in P20,000 in 20 years. Due to the lower interest
rates, less interest will be earned over the 20 years, therefore, the initial investment now needs
to be greater than P7,000. PV + interest earned = FV.
Exercise 3
a1.
Present value of the P25,000 at the end of ten years is P9,423 =
P25,000 x 0.3769.
a2.
Present value of the P1,000 semiannual interest payments is P12,462 = P1,000 x 12.4622.
a3.
Present value of the P25,000 bond is P21,885 = (P9,423 + P12,462).
b.
This bond is selling at a discount because the bond is only paying 8% (P2,000 per year / P25,000
face) interest when the market rate is 10%. To achieve the higher yield, the investor pays in
less than face value (discounted), but at maturity the investor receives the full P25,000 face
value.

e.

The profitability index indicates that Investment 2 is preferred, while the net present value method
does not inherently distinguish between projects with different magnitudes of initial investment.
However, the final choice between these two mutually exclusive alternatives may depend on
qualitative factors that distinguish between the two alternatives or identify other possible uses for the
available funds.

## *Depreciation is not a cash flow.

b. Net present value indicates that purchasing the jet is the preferred alternative. However, even though
the net present values differ by P49,166, the additional risk of ownership may sway the company to
choose to rent on a use-by-use basis.

Yes, Teddy should consider this purchase because the net present value is positive, which indicates
the purchase meets the companys 10% cost of capital requirement.

Exercise 8
a.
Project A payback period is 4 years.
Project B payback period is 2.33 years = (2 years + P10,000/P30,000)
The payback criterion indicates that Project B is the preferred investment because it has the
shorter payback period.
b.

The advantage of using the payback period criterion is that it gives an indication of the projects risk,
in the sense that the longer the payback period, the longer an organization is exposed to an
unrecovered investment. Drawbacks include that it ignores the time value of money and that it
ignores cash outflows after the initial investment and cash inflows after the payback period.

c.

Project A accounting rate of return is 20% = (*P10,000 average income / **P50,000 average
investment).
Average increase in income is [(10+20+30+40+50) / 5] = P30,000 per year
Depreciation is P100,000 / 5 years = P20,000 per year
* Average income is P10,000 = (Average increase P30,000 Depreciation P20,000)
** Average investment is P50,000 = [(P100,000 initial investment + 0 salvage value) / 2]

Project B accounting rate of return is 20% = (*P10,000 average income / **P50,000 average
investment).
Average increase in income is [(50+40+30+20+10) / 5] = P30,000 per year
Depreciation is P100,000 / 5 years = P20,000 per year
* Average income is P10,000 = (Average increase P30,000 Depreciation P20,000)
** Average investment is P50,000 = [(P100,000 initial investment + 0 salvage value) / 2]
d.

e.

The accounting rate of return criterion indicates both projects are equally attractive.
An advantage of the accounting rate of return is the incorporation of accounting income rather than
cash flows for all periods. Disadvantages include not considering the time value of money and
not explicitly considering the timing of cash flows.
Project B is recommended because it has the shorter payback period.

c.

Only projects 1 through 4 are acceptable to Davidson Company. Project 5 is not acceptable because
the project does meet the cost of capital requirement of 10%. This is pointed out with the
negative net present value, the profitability index that is below 1, and the 8% internal rate of
return.

The profitability index indicates that Investment 3 is preferred, the internal rate of return indicates
that Investment 4 is preferred, while the net present value method does not inherently
distinguish between projects with different magnitudes of investment. However, because the
profitability index is considered superior to the internal rate of return, I would recommend
Investment 3. The final choice may depend on qualitative factors that distinguish the four
alternatives.

2. After the first two years, P250,000 of the original P300,000 investment would be recouped. It would
take one-quarter of the third year (P50,000/P200,000) to recoup the last P50,000. Thus, the payback
period is 2.25 years.

d.

## The project is quantitatively unacceptable because it has a negative NPV, a less-than-one

PI, and a payback period of over six years. However, the NPV and PI are extremely close
to being acceptable. Because the new machine will provide XYZ zero-defect production,
the investment may be desirable if additional qualitative factors are considered such as
improved competitive position, customer satisfaction, goodwill generated, improved
product quality and reliability, and a desire to be in the forefront of manufacturing
capability. XYZ may want to attempt to quantify these benefits and reevaluate the
machines acceptability as an investment.
