# [SOLUTION] Net Present Value

When a business considers investing in a new project, the decision must be carefully evaluated. Businesses should invest in projects that are expected to add value to the company. One method to determine the added value of a project is net present value (NPV) analysis. NVP analysis determines the present value of the benefits and costs of a project. If the projects NPV is greater than \$0, then the project is considered to add value to the company. For this discussion, you will practice calculating the added value of project using the NPV.Prepare:Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum,Complete the Week 4  Learning Activity

The R&D, which cost \$3 million, is complete and paid for. The plant and equipment to mass produce the Electrobicycles will cost \$2 million. This plant and equipment will be depreciated over 5 years using the straight-line method to zero book value (\$400,000 per year). A working capital investment of \$1 million will be needed at the beginning of the project. A working capital investment of \$200,000 per year will be needed thereafter.At the end of 5 years, the auto company believes there will be no more sales opportunities for Electrobicycles and will cease all production.

Thus, at the end of the project, all working capital investments (the \$1 million initial investment and the \$200,000 per year) will be recovered at full value. The plant and equipment will be scrapped for a salvage value of \$300,000 (after tax).The company expects moderate sales in years 1 and 2, and then significant growth in each year thereafter as consumers adopt the Electrobicycles. Revenues and earnings will cease at the end of Year 5. The revenues, after-tax earnings, and cash flow for the 5-year life of the project are shown in this table.
