9. Mirtha Mudflat has sufficient funds to choose one of two investments. The same amount will be invested in either case. Choice one: ten year \$100,000 5% Treasury bonds issued to yield 4% per annum, the market rate. Choice two: a risky bond of the same amount that has expected cash flows of \$9,000 per year for the same period.

What is the issue price of the Treasury bond?

A. \$100,000

B. \$108,110

C. \$92,278

D. \$125,000

E. None of the above

Issue price of the bond:

 Par value × PVF = \$100,000 × (1.04)-10 = \$ 67,556 Annuity × PVFAn = \$5,000 × (1 − (1.04)-10)/0.04 = \$ 40,554 \$ 108,110

10. Mirtha Mudflat has sufficient funds to choose one of two investments. The same amount will be invested in either case. Choice one: ten year \$100,000 5% Treasury bonds issued to yield 4% per annum, the market rate. Choice two: a risky bond of the same amount that has expected cash flows of \$9,000 per year for the same period.

What is the risk premium that makes Mirtha indifferent between the two investments?

A. 7.80%

B. 5.66%

C. 3.80%

D. 5.00%

E. None of the above

First, solve for the issue price of the bond:

 Par value × PVF = \$100,000 × (1.04)-10 = \$ 67,556 Annuity × PVFAn = \$5,000 × (1 − (1.04)-10)/0.04 = \$ 40,554 \$ 108,110

Then, solve for the IRR, then subtract riskless rate:

 INV = Annuity × PVFAn + Bond maturity × PVF PVFAn = (INV – PV bond)/Annuity = (\$108,110 − \$47,171)/\$9,000 = 6.77104(IRR = x%, t = 10) IRR – riskless = 7.8% − 4% = 3.8%

Choice one: ten year \$100,000 5% Treasury bonds issued to yield 4% per annum, the market rate. Choice two: a risky bond of the same amount that has expected cash flows of \$9,000 per year for the same period. Assume Mirtha purchased the risky bond for \$105,000 and the market rate is 6%. Which is false?

A. Net present value is \$17,080

B. Payback occurs at the end of year 10

C. IRR is 8.25%

D. Present value of the cash flows is \$122,080

E. None of the above

All are true.

NPV \$17,080; PV \$122,080; IRR 8.25%

Payback is not accomplished by the annual cash flows (\$9,000; 10 years). The payback shortfall is covered by the redemption of the bond.

Essay Questions

14. Annuity

Suppose the opportunity cost of capital is 10 percent and you have just won a \$1 million lottery that entitles you to \$100,000 at the end of each of the next ten years.

Required:

a. What is the minimum lump sum cash payment you would be willing to take now in lieu of the ten-year annuity?

b. What is the minimum lump sum you would be willing to accept at the end of the ten years in lieu of the annuity?

c. Suppose three years have passed and you have just received the third payment and you have seven left when the lottery promoters approach you with an offer to “settle-up for cash.” What is the minimum you would accept (the end of year three)?

d. How would your answer to part (a) change if the first payment came immediately (at t = 0) and the remaining payments were at the beginning instead of at the end of each year?

Feedback:

A. The minimum lump sum you should take is the present value of the cash payments.

 PV = \$100,000 × Annuity Factor (i = 0.10, t = 10) = \$100,000 × 6.145 = \$614,500

b. This question is essentially (a) in reverse. You are looking for the future value of the cash payments. Looking in the future value in arrears table, the annuity factor is 15.937.

 PV = \$100,000 × 15.937 = \$1,593,700

c. This is similar to (a). This time, t = 7.

 PV = \$100,000 × Annuity Factor (i = 0.10, t = 7) = \$100,000 × 4.868 = \$486,800

d. To convert an end-of-year payment schedule to a beginning-of-year schedule, we need only multiply by 1 + r. The minimum payment is \$614,500 × 1.10 = \$675,950.

15. Identifying the Opportunity Cost of Capital

Don Phelps recently started a dry cleaning business. He would like to expand the business and have a coin-operated laundry also. The expansion of the building and the washing and drying machines will cost \$100,000. The bank will lend the business \$100,000 at 12 percent interest rate. Don could get a 10 percent interest rate loan if he uses his personal house as collateral. The lower interest rate reflects the increased security of the loan to the bank, because the bank could take Don’s home if he doesn’t pay back the loan. Don currently can put money in the bank and receive 6 percent interest.

Required:

Provide arguments for using 12 percent, 10 percent, and 6 percent as the opportunity cost of capital for evaluating the investment.

Feedback:

The 12 percent rate that the bank wants to charge without the security of the home mortgage probably best reflects the risk of the project. Therefore, the 12 percent interest rate is probably the most appropriate discount rate to use.

The 10 percent rate reflects the interest rate that Don Phelps would have to pay if he uses his personal house as collateral. This rate reflects the interest rate for Don’s total portfolio of assets including his house.

The 6 percent rate reflects the interest rate that Don receives in interest for his bank deposits. If Don decided to use his own cash and not borrow money for the investment, Don’s forgone opportunity of using the cash would be the 6 percent interest if no other investment were available.
