He doesn’t have enough knowledge to check the financial feasibility of projects. So, he approaches to a financial consultancy firm to get these projects evaluated regarding their financial viability. Being an employee of the financial consultancy firm, you have been assigned the task to analyze these projects by using the following capital budgeting techniques:
1. Payback period (Desired period is 4 year) [ 4 + 4 = 08 ]
2. Net Present Value (NPV) [ 7 + 7 = 14 ]
3. Profitability Index (PI) [ 3 + 3 = 06 ]
Considering both projects mutually exclusive, suggest which of the two projects is feasible and why? [ 1 + 1 = 2 ]
Note: Cost of capital for projects are 10%.

Solution:

NPV = Present value of future cash flows – Initial Investment

PVn = [CF1 / (1 + i)] + [CF2 / (1 + i)2] + [CF3 / (1 + i)3] + . . . . + CFn / (1 + i)n

OR

NPV = sum of all PV -Initial Investment

FOR PI

PI = sum of all PV / Initial investment

-250,000 + (30,000/1.10) + (50,000/1.10^2) + (60,000/1.10^3) +(90,000/1.10^4) + (100,000/ 1.10^5) + (120,000/1.10^6)

=5474.14 ans npv 1

i have calculated below

npv 1 is 54974

npv 2 is -7246
