# I need help with those questions for my job interview

Hi! This is my first post on soyuz-premyer so I hope that I write in a good place. I have to do two exercises and I feel disappointed because they are harder than I fought… is there anyone who can help me with this stuff?

Management is considering the following investment:

Year Cash Flow (pre tax)

1 1 250

2 1 400

3 1 600

4 1 800

The investment will be financed by 50% equity and 50% debt.

The company’s capital structure after the investment will change to 60% equity and 40% debt.

The investment will cost 5400, paid immediately (including 600 for working capital, 300 for equity issue costs and 100 for debt issue costs).

The risk free rate is 4%, the market rate of return is 10% and the equity beta is equal to 1,5.

The cost of the associated debt is 8%.

The corporate tax rate is 30%.

At the end of year 4, the after tax realizable value is 1500 (this includes working capital).

Capital allowances are at 25% per year on a reducing balance basis.

**Task 1: Calculate the NPV, MIRR and APV for the project.**

Cost of Equity = Risk-Free Rate of Return + Beta * (Market Rate of Return - Risk-Free Rate of Return).

**Cost of equity** = 0,04 + 1,5*(0,1 – 0,04) = 0,04 + 0,09 = **13%**

**WACC (with new D/E proportion)**

**WACC** = 0,4*(0,08*(1-0,3)) + 0,6*(0,13) =2,8% + 6,5% = **10,04%**

**NPV** = -5400 + (1250*0,7)/1,1004 + (1400*0,7)/1,1004^{2} + (1600*0,7)/1,1004 ^{3} + (1800*0,7)/1,1004^{4} + 1500/1,1004^{4} = -5400 +795,17 + 809,33 + 840,56 + 859,35 + 1023,03 = **-1072,57**

Is it ok? Any idea for MIRR and APV?

**Task 2: ****what****’s the difference (in terms of profit before tax) between the two choices?**

The company is also considering two different approaches to receivables management:

Period of credit allowed – days of receivables /// Yearly revenue estimate

Method 1: Period of credit allowed – days of receivables 10

Yearly revenue estimate 7 000

Method 2: Period of credit allowed – days of receivables 20

Yearly revenue estimate 15 000

In both cases the company’s gross margin is expected at 12%, and the cost of debt necessary to finance receivables is 13%.
