Calculate Future Value And Maximum Value Of A Project


The Vice President of Comdev Ltd. considers a proposal submitted by its Engineering
Department for creating a DVD disc manufacturing facility at Comdev’s existing Edmonton plant. The financial information supplied by the Engineering Department in support of this project is given

Project life                                                                                                              6 years

Initial equipment cost                                                                                            $4,000,000

End of the year net revenue (total revenue minus costs)

at the end of the first year of the project                                                                   $900,000

Expected increments in the annual end of year net revenue                                         $Y

(i.e., the annual net revenue at the end of the second year is

$900,000 + $Y; at the end of the third year $900,000 + 2$Y; etc.)

Equipment upgrade and preventive maintenance costs

at the end of year 3 of the project (one time cost)                                                       $X

Equipment salvage value                                                                                           Nil

Determine (considering before tax cash flows):

(a) the value of X that would make the future value of the proposed project equal to $1,000,000. Y = $50,000 and the interest rate is 6 % yearly compounding

(b) the maximum value of X that would make the proposed project acceptable for Comdev.
Y = 0 and the MARR is 6 % yearly compounding

(c) the external rate of return of the proposed project. X = 0, Y = 0, and the reinvestment rate is 6 % yearly compounding

(d) the after tax cash flow in the second year of the project. The tax rate is 45% , the CCA (capital cost allowance ) rate is 20 % and Y = 0



The question belongs to Finance and it discusses about calculating the future value, the maximum value, the external rate of return and the after tax cash flow for a proposed project.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
