Discounted PBP

Year Amount PVIF$1=1/(1+r )^n Discounted amount accumulated

1 65,000 1.1 59,090.91 59,090.91

2 65,000 1.21 53,719.00 112,809.91

3 65,000 1.331 48,835.46 161,645.37

The PBP is 150,000-112,809.91=37,190.09

Assuming the 48,835.46 was accrued evenly,37,190.09/4069.62=9.14

The PBP=2 years and 9.1 months.

Net Present value

Year amount PVIF$1=1/(1+r)^n discounted amount accumulated

0 -150,000 1 -150,000 -150,000

1 65,000 1.1 59,090.91 59,090.91

2 65,000 1.21 53,719.00 112,809.91

3 65,000 1.331 48,835.46 161,645.37

NPV= -150,000+161,645.37=11,645.37

Internal Rate of Return

This is the rate at which NPV=0

This rate in this scenario is 14%

See excel for calculations

Part B. Saving Growth Scenario: BASE CASE but with 10% compounded annual savings growth in years 2 & 3.

Cash flows for the poroject

Year 0 -150,000

Year 1 65,000

Year 2 78,650

Year 3 86,515

Nominal PBP

Year amount accumulative

1 65,000 65,000

2 78,650 143,650

3 86,515 230,165

To get the exact PBP we calculate cumulative earnings for year 3

86,515/12=7,209.58

So the PBP is two years and approximately 1 month

Disocunted PBP

Year amount discounting factor amount cumulative

1 65,000 1.1 59,090.91 59,090.91

2 78,650 1.21 65,000 124,090.91

3 86,515 1.331 65,000 189,090.91
