# Hey there,

## Edited the solution where mistakes occurred but please

note that there were was an error in the case study that I
couldn’t d edit. The salvage value should be R 420 000
(i.e. 600 000X[1-0.3]). All mistakes corrected are
highlighted in bold.

## See you next week,

Doug.

CHAPTER 10
12. Annual depreciation charge = R290 000/5 = R58 000
After-tax salvage value = R50 000(1 – 0,34) = R33 000
OCF = R90 000(1 – 0,34) + 0,34(R58 000) = R79 120
NPV = – R290 000 – R27 000 + R79 120(PVIFA10%,5) + [(R33 000+R27 000) / 1,15]
= R20 182.33

15. NPV = – R150 000 – R32 500 – 5750(PVIFA15%,5) + R32 500/1,155 = – R185
616.65
EAC = – R185 616.65 / (PVIFA15%,5) = -185 616.65 / 3,352155 = – R 55 372.33

## 22. Annual depreciation = R13 250 000/6 = R2 208 333

CHAPTER 11

## 7. (1): Qc = R16M/(R2K – R1,75K) = 64 000; Qa = (R16M + R7M)/(R2K – R1,75K)

= 92 000
(2): Qc = R60K/(R30 – R25) = 12 000; Qa = (R60K + R150K)/(R30 – R25) = 42
000
(3): Qc = R200/(R7 – R2) = 40; Qa = (R200 + R365)/(R7 – R2) = 113

## 10. Qcf = FC/(P–v); 11 000 = R110 000/(P–R20); P = R30

Qacc = (FC+D)/(P–v); 16 000 = (R110 000 + D)/(R30 – R20); D = R50 000
D = I / N; I = 5(R50 000) = R250 000
OCFfinc = I/(PVIFA15%,5) = R250 000/3,3522 = R74 577,89
Qfinc = (R110 000 + R74 577,89)/(R30 – R20) = 18 458

## 11. DOL = %∆OCF/%∆Q; %∆OCF = 2[ (40K–30K)/30K ] = 66,67%

The new level of operating leverage is lower since FC/OCF is smaller.

12. DOL = 2 = 1 + R150 000/OCF; OCF = R150 000 New OCF = R150 000(1,6667)
= R250 000
New DOL = 1 + (R150 000/R250 000) = 1,60

## 20. a. NPVbase = –R3 500 000 + R750 000(PVIFA17%,10) = –R6 047,28

b. R250 000 = (R125)Q(PVIFA17%,9) ; Q = 250 000/[125(4,4506)] = 450
Abandon the project if Q < 450 units, because PV(abandonment) > PV (project CF’s)
c. The R250 000 is the market value of the project. If you continue with the project in
year one , you forego the R250 000 that could have been used for something else.
