Management plans to buy the properties today and sell them five years from today
The following table summarizes the initial cos and the expected sale price for each property,
well as the appropriate discount rate based on the risk feach venture.
VNO has total capital budget of $18,000,000 invest in properties.

a. What the IRR of each investment?
b. What the NPV of each investment?
Given its budget of $18,000,000. which properties should VNO choose (use the profitability
d. Explain why the profitability index method could not be used if NNO's budget were
12,000,000 instead Which properties should KP choose this case?

+ Continuation value
Free cash flow
a. For this base-case scenario, what the NPV of the plant omanucture lightweight trucks?
b Based input from the marketing department Keystone uncertain abou its revenue
forecast particular anagement would like examine the sensitivity NPV tothe
revenue assumptions Whati the NPV project frevenues 10% higher than
forecast? What s the NPV frevenues are 10% lower than forecast?
c. Rather than assuming that cash flows for this project are constant, mana gement would
explore sensitivity of its analysis possible growth revenues and operating
expenses Specifically. management would like to assume that revenues ufacturing
expenses, and marketing expenses are given the table for year and grow 2%per
year every year starting year Management also plans assume initial capital
expenditures therefore depreciation). additions working capital. and continuation
value remain initially specified i the table. Whatis the NPV this project under these
alternative assumptions? How does the NPV change the revenues and operating expenses
grow by 5% per year rather than by 2%?
4)The night before important budget meeting, you are reviewing the project valuation analysis
you had your summer intern prepare for one the projects be discussed:
Earnings Before Taxes
NPV Equity Cost Capital
Looking over the spreadsheet you realize that while all of the cash flow estimates are correct,
your associate used flow-to-equity valuation method discounted cash flow using
equity cost capital 11% However the project incremental leverage very
different from the company historical debt -qquity ratie of 0.20: For this project, company
will instead borrow $80 million upfront and repay $20 million year million year
and $40 million year 4 Thus, project equity capital likely higher than
firm's constant over time- invalidating your associate calculation Clearly. FTE
approach is not the best way analyze this project. Fortunately. you have your calculator
you. and with any luck you can use abetter method before the meeting starts.
What the present value fthe interest tax shield associated with this project?
c. Whati the best estimate of the project' value from the information given?
5) Sports Unlimited expected to generate free cash flows of $10.9 million per vear. THe has
permanent debt $40 million, tax 40% and an unlevered 10% (15%)
Whati the value of their equity using the APV method?
What WACC? What their equity value using the WACC method?
c. IXXL sdebt cost 5% what is their equity cost capital?
d. What their equity value using the FTE method?
