Decision Making and Capital Budgeting

1 Excel spreadsheet and 1 paper of 1,500–2,000 words

Based on the following information, calculate net present value (NPV), internal rate of return (IRR), and payback for the investment opportunity:

· EEC expects to save $500,000 per year for the next 10 years by purchasing the supplier.

· EEC’s cost of capital is 14%.

· EEC believes it can purchase the supplier for $2 million.

· Answer the following:

· Based on your calculations, should EEC acquire the supplier? Why or why not?

· Which of the techniques (NPV, IRR, or payback period) is the most useful tool to use? Why?

· Which of the techniques (NPV, IRR, or payback period) is the least useful tool to use? Why?

· Would your answer be the same if EEC’s cost of capital were 25%? Why or why not?

· Would your answer be the same if EEC did not save $500,000 per year as anticipated?

· What would be the least amount of savings that would make this investment attractive to EEC?

· Given this scenario, what is the most EEC would be willing to pay for the supplier?

Prepare a memo to the President of EEC that details your findings and shows the effects if any of the following situations are true:

· EEC’s cost of capital increases.

· The expected savings are less than $500,000 per year.

· EEC must pay more than $2 million for the supplier.
