This answer was rated:

1. Suppose Tapley Inc. uses a WACC of 8% for below-average risk projects, 10% for average-risk projects, and 12% for above-average risk projects. Project A has average risk and an IRR of 9%. Project B has below-average risk and an IRR of 8.5%. Project C has above-average risk and an IRR of 11%. Which of the above independent projects should Tapley accept, assuming that the company uses the IRR method when choosing projects? Why?


2. Langston Labs has an overall (composite) WACC of 10%, which reflects the cost of capital for its average asset. Its assets vary widely in risk, and Langston evaluates low-risk projects with a WACC of 8%, average-risk projects at 10%, and high-risk projects at 12%. The company is considering the following projects:
Project Risk Expected Return
A High 15%
B Average 12%
C High 11%
D Low 9%
E Low 6%
Which set of projects would maximize shareholder wealth?

4. Thomson Media is considering some new equipment whose data are shown below. The equipment has a 3-year tax life and would be fully depreciated by the straight-line method over 3 years, but it would have a positive pre-tax salvage value at the end of Year 3, when the project would be closed down. Also, some new working capital would be required, but it would be recovered at the end of the project’s life. Revenues and other operating costs are expected to be constant over the project’s 3-year life. What is the project’s NPV?
WACC 10.0%
Net investment in fixed assets (depreciable basis) $70,000
Required new working capital $10,000
Straight-line deprec. rate 33.333%
Sales revenues, each year $75,000
Operating costs (excl. deprec.), each year $30,000
