1. You are

required to suggest which project would be more feasible if the cost of capital is 12% and initial investment of both the projects A & B is Rs.1500000. Calculate PBP, ARR, NPV, PI, IRR

Sol: Calculation of Depreciation: Project A = (1500000-0) /4 = 375000 Project B = (1500000-0) / 6 = 250000 Calculation of Pay Back Period:

accept the proposal or else reject. GPI > 1 shall be accept or else rejected. PBP= Initial investment Uniform annual cash inflow . b. 2. IRR=LRR+ +ve NPV *D. It is the relationship between present value of cash inflows and the present value of cash outflows.It is the rate of return at which NPV for the proposal is zero. It is also known as ‘time adjusted rate of return’ discounted cash flow’ ‘discounted rate of return. Gross profitability index Higher the GPI better the proposal.

DR = Difference in rate.

FLEXIBLE POLICY: It is also called as Conservative approach where a firm does not want to take the risk of maintaining a low level of current assets. inventory and will have a strict credit policy.

These costs which a firm has to bear for maintaining low level of investment in current assets is called as Shortage cost. Calculation of average profit (A. Average Rate of Return: Under this method average profit after tax and depreciation is calculated and then it is divided by the total capital outlay or total investment in the project.

permanent working capital and a portion of Fluctuating working capital requirements. Modigiliani and Miller’s Irrelevant Dividend Theory: According to Modigiliani and Miller.STRATEGY A: Long term financing used to finance both fixed assets requirement as well as Working capital requirement. share holders enjoy capital appreciation equal to the amount of earnings retained.
