Assignment Steps 

Resources: Corporate Finance

Calculate the following time value of money problems in Microsoft Excel or Word document. You must show all of your calculations.

  1. If      you want to accumulate $500,000 in 20 years, how much do you need to      deposit today that pays an interest rate of 15%?
  2. What      is the future value if you plan to invest $200,000 for 5 years and the      interest rate is 5%?
  3. What      is the interest rate for an initial investment of $100,000 to grow to      $300,000 in 10 years?
  4. If      your company purchases an annuity that will pay $50,000/year for 10 years      at a 11% discount rate, what is the value of the annuity on the purchase      date if the first annuity payment is made on the date of purchase?
  5. What      is the rate of return required to accumulate $400,000 if you invest      $10,000 per year for 20 years. Assume all payments are made at the end of      the period.

Calculate the project cash flow generated for Project A and Project B using the NPV method.

  • Which      project would you select, and why?
  • Which      project would you select under the payback method? The discount rate is      10% for both projects.
  • Use      Microsoft® Excel® to prepare your answer.
  • Note      that a similar problem is in the textbook in Section 5.1.
