1 Chapter 13 Capital Budgeting: Estimating Cash Flow and Analyzing Risk ANSWERS TO END-OF-CHAPTER QUESTIONS 13-3 Since the cost of capital includes a premium for expected inflation, failure to adjust cash flows means that the denominator, but not the numerator, rises with inflation, and this lowers the calculated NPV Capital budgeting analysis should only include those cash flows which will be affected by the decision. Sunk costs are unrecoverable and cannot be changed, so they have no bearing on the capital budgeting decision. Opportunity costs represent the cash flows the firm gives up by investing in this project rather than its next best alternative, and externalities are the cash flows (both positive and negative) to other projects that result from the firm taking on this project. These cash flows occur only because the firm took on the capital budgeting project; therefore, they must be included in the analysis When a firm takes on a new capital budgeting project, it typically must increase its investment in receivables and inventories, over and above the increase in payables and accruals, thus increasing its net operating working capital. Since this increase must be financed, it is included as an outflow in Year 0 of the analysis. At the end of the project s life, inventories are depleted and receivables are collected. Thus, there is a decrease in NOWC, which is treated as an inflow Scenario analysis analyzes a limited number of outcomes. Although the base case scenario may be the most likely, or expected outcome, the bad and good scenarios are frequently worst case and best case scenarios, that is, when everything goes bad together, or everything goes right together. It is unlikely that everything will go wrong all at once, or everything will go right all at once and so scenario analysis can tend to overestimate the riskiness of a project. Simulation analysis, on the other hand, allows the variables being simulated to either vary together or independently, as the modeler sees fit. With enough runs of the simulation, this procedure should provide a reasonably accurate description of the possible outcomes. Note, however, that if the project is big and its failure could threaten the viability of the firm, then evaluating a worst case scenario may very well be important! A simulation may only identify that worst case outcome infrequently and with a scenario analysis you can specify the worst case and see if it drags the company down The costs associated with financing are reflected in the weighted average cost of capital. To include interest expense in the capital budgeting analysis would double count the cost of debt financing.

2 SOLUTIONS TO END-OF-CHAPTER PROBLEMS 13-1 a. Equipment \$ 17,000,000 NWC Investment 5,000,000 Initial investment outlay \$22,000,000 b. No, last year s \$150,000 expenditure is considered a sunk cost and does not represent an incremental cash flow. Hence, it should not be included in the analysis. c. The potential sale of the building represents an opportunity cost of conducting the project in that building. Therefore, the possible after-tax sale price must be charged against the project as a cost Operating Cash Flows: t = 1 Sales revenues \$18,000,000 Operating costs 9,000,000 Depreciation 4,000,000 Operating income before taxes \$ 5,000,000 Taxes (40%) 2,000,000 Operating income after taxes \$ 3,000,000 Add back depreciation 4,000,000 Operating cash flow \$ 7,000, Equipment's original cost \$12,000,000 Depreciation (80%) 9,000,000 Book value \$ 3,000,000 Gain on sale = \$4,000,000 - \$3,000,000 = \$1,000,000. Tax on gain = \$1,000,000(0.4) = \$400,000. AT net salvage value = \$4,000,000 - \$400,000 = \$3,600, Cash outflow = \$40,000. Increase in annual after-tax cash flows: CF = \$9,000. Place the cash flows on a time line: % -110,000 19,000 19,000 19,000 With a financial calculator, input the appropriate cash flows into the cash flow register, input I/YR = 10, and then solve for NPV = \$6, Thus, Chen should purchase the new machine.

3 13-5 a. The applicable depreciation values are as follows for the two scenarios: Scenario 1 Scenario 2 Year (Straight Line) (MACRS) 1 \$425,000 \$566, , , , , , ,970 b. To find the difference in net present values under these two methods, we must determine the difference in incremental cash flows each method provides. The depreciation expenses cannot simply be subtracted from each other, as there are tax ramifications due to depreciation expense. The full depreciation expense is subtracted from Revenues to get operating income, and then taxes due are computed Then, depreciation is added to after-tax operating income to obtain the project s operating cash flow. Therefore, if the tax rate is 40%, only 60% of the depreciation expense is actually subtracted out during the after-tax operating income calculation and the full depreciation expense is added back to calculate operating income. So, there is a tax benefit associated with the depreciation expense that amounts to 40% of the depreciation expense. Therefore, the differences between depreciation expenses under each scenario should be computed and multiplied by 0.4 to determine the benefit provided by the depreciation expense.

4 Depreciation Expense Depreciation Expense Year Difference (2 1) Diff. 0.4 (MACRS) 1 \$141,610 \$56, , , ,230-69, , ,612 Now to find the difference in NPV to be generated under these scenarios, just enter the cash flows that represent the benefit from depreciation expense and solve for net present value based upon a WACC of 10%. CF0 = 0; CF1 = 56644; CF2 = ; CF3 = ; CF4 = ; and I/YR = 10. Solve for NPV = \$27, So, all else equal the use of the accelerated depreciation method will result in a higher NPV (by \$27,043.62) than would the use of a straight-line depreciation method. c. If Wendy s boss has a bonus plan that depends on net income instead of cash flow, then he will make a larger bonus in the first 2 years of the project if they use straight line depreciation, and a smaller bonus in the last two years. This is despite the fact that accelerated depreciation is better economically for the firm. The fault lies in the bonus plan. Paying managers a bonus based on net income can lead to decisions that are not in the best interest of the company s shareholders, like this one a. The net cost is \$1,118,000: Price (\$1,080,000) Modification (22,500) Increase in NWC (15,500) Cash outlay for new machine (\$1,118,000) b. The operating cash flows follow: Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 1. After-tax savings \$247,000 \$247,000 \$28, Depreciation tax savings 128, ,521 57,148 Net cash flow \$375,612 \$418,512 \$304,148 Notes: 1. The after-tax cost savings is \$380,000(1 - T) = \$380,000(0.65) = \$247, The depreciation expense in each year is the depreciable basis, \$1,102,500, times the MACRS allowance percentages of , , and for Years 1, 2, and 3, respectively. Depreciation expense in Years 1, 2, and 3 is \$367,463,

5 \$490,061, and \$163,280. The depreciation tax savings is calculated as the tax rate (35%) times the depreciation expense in each year. c. The terminal year cash flow is \$473,343: Salvage value \$605,000 Tax on SV* (183,157) Return of NWC 15,500 \$437,343 BV in Year 4 = \$1,102,500(0.0741) = \$81,695. *Tax on SV = (\$605,000 - \$81,695)(0.35) = \$183,157. d. The project has an NPV of \$78,790; thus, it should be accepted. Year Net Cash Flow 12% 0 (\$1,118,000) (\$1,118,000) 1 375, , , , , ,779 NPV = \$ 78,790 Alternatively, with a financial calculator, input the appropriate cash flows into the cash flow register, input I/YR = 12, and then solve for NPV = \$78, a. The net cost is \$89,000: Price (\$70,000) Modification (15,000) Change in NWC (4,000) (\$89,000)

6 b. The operating cash flows follow: Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 After-tax savings \$15,000 \$15,000 \$15,000 Depreciation shield 11,332 15,113 5,035 Net cash flow \$26,332 \$30,113 \$20,035 Notes: 1. The after-tax cost savings is \$25,000(1 T) = \$25,000(0.6) = \$15, The depreciation expense in each year is the depreciable basis, \$85,000, times the MACRS allowance percentage of , , and for Years 1, 2 and 3, respectively. Depreciation expense in Years 1, 2, and 3 is \$28,331, \$37,783, and \$ The depreciation shield is calculated as the tax rate (40%) times the depreciation expense in each year. c. The additional end-of-project cash flow is \$24,519: Salvage value \$30,000 Tax on SV* (9,481) Return of NWC 4,000 \$24,519 *Tax on SV = (\$30,000 - \$6,299)(0.4) = \$9,481. Note that the remaining BV in Year 4 = \$85,000(0.0741) = \$6299. d. The project has an NPV of -\$6,700. Thus, it should not be accepted. Year Net Cash Flow 0 (\$89,000) 1 26, , ,555 With a financial calculator, input the following: CF0 = , CF1 = 26332, CF2 = 30113, CF3 = 44555, and I/YR = 10 to solve for NPV = -\$6,

7 13-8 a. Sales = 1,000(\$138) \$138,000 Cost = 1,000(\$105) 105,000 Net before tax \$ 33,000 Taxes (34%) 11,220 Net after tax \$ 21,780 Not considering inflation, NPV is -\$4,800. This value is calculated as \$21,780 -\$150,000 + = -\$4, Considering inflation, the real cost of capital is calculated as follows: (1 + rr)(1 + i) = 1.15 (1 + rr)(1.06) = 1.15 rr = Thus, the NPV considering inflation is calculated as -\$150,000 + \$21, = \$106,520. After adjusting for expected inflation, we see that the project has a positive NPV and should be accepted. This demonstrates the bias that inflation can induce into the capital budgeting process: Inflation is already reflected in the denominator (the cost of capital), so it must also be reflected in the numerator. A more straightforward way to calculate the present value without having to calculate a real required rate of return is to use the constant growth formula, instead. Here, the present value of all of the future cash flows is: PV 0 CF 0 1 g 21, ,520 r g so the NPV = 256, ,000 = 106,520, which is the same answer we d have gotten above if in calculating the real required rate of return we had used enough decimal places.

8 b. If part of the costs were fixed, and hence did not rise with inflation, then sales revenues would rise faster than total costs. However, when the plant wears out and must be replaced, inflation will cause the replacement cost to jump, necessitating a sharp output price increase to cover the now higher depreciation charges. Note that if you wanted to value this perpetuity with a fixed component and a growing component, the total cash flows would no longer grow at a constant rate and so the constant growth formula couldn t be used as we did in part (a). Instead, you would need to either calculate a real required rate of return, as we did in the first part of the solution to (a), or better, split the cash flows into two parts: a growing part that grows at 6% and a non-growing part. Use the constant growth formula on the growing part with g = 6%, and use the constant growth formula on the non-growing part with g = 0% E(NPV) = 0.05(-\$70) (-\$25) (\$12) (\$20) (\$30) = -\$ \$5.0 + \$6.0 + \$4.0 + \$1.5 = \$3.0 million. σnpv= [0.05(-\$70 - \$3) (-\$25 - \$3) (\$12 - \$3) (\$20 - \$3) (\$30 - \$3) 2 ] 0.5 = \$ million. \$ CVNPV = = \$3.0
