Case Analysis 2 – Weight 30% of total assignment

Calculate the Nominal Payback, the Discounted Payback, the Net Present Value and the IRR (so 4 answers for each scenario) assuming:

-Alice (A) recommends using the base assumptions above: 3 year project life, flat annual savings, 10% discount rate Answer

– Bill (B) recommends savings that grow each year: 3 year project life, 10% discount rate and a 10% compounded annual savings growth in years 2 & 3. In other words, instead of assuming savings stay flat, assume that they will grow by 10% in year 2, and then grow another 10% over year 3 in year Answer

Carla (C) believes we use a higher Discount Rate because of the risk of this type of project: 3 year project life, flat annual savings, 15% discount rate. Answer

Danny (D) is convinced the machine will last longer than 3 years. He recommends using a 5 Year Equipment Life: 5 year project and savings life, flat annual savings, 10% discount rate. In other words, assume that the machine will last 2 more years and deliver 2 more years of savings. Answer
