Average rate of return, net present value, internal rate of return, & payback period
CAM Company is evaluating a project requiring a capital expenditure of \$619,200. The project has an estimated life of four years and no salvage value. The estimated net income and net cash flow from the project are as follows:

Year Net Income Net Cash Flow

1 \$ 65,000 \$ 240,000

2 92,000 260,000

3 100,000 160,000

4 52,600 70,000

Total \$ 309,600 \$ 730,000

The companys minimum desired rate of return is 12%. The present value at compound interest of 12% for 1, 2, 3, and 4 years is .893, 797, 712, and .636 respectively.

Well I can start by giving you some formula which you can apply eventually to find your answers :

IRR : L + [ __P____ X ( H - L ) Martha10 Posts: 2, Reputation: 1 New Member #3 May 18, 2008, 09:03 AM
Sorry Send My Message Before Finishing My Reply :

The Irr Converts The Npv Into A %. This Is Done Because People Are More Familiar With Rates Of Rates Of Interest So Understand More Clearly That Borrowing At 10% And Investing At 13 % Is Good For Example.

Whereas Borring At 10% Getting A Npv Of \$52,000 May Not Be So Obvious.

The Irr Is The Point Where The Npv Is O.

L : Is The Lower Rate Of Increase - Example 10%
H : Is The Higher Rate Of Increase - Example 20%
P : Is The Positive Npv : Example 52,261
N: Is The Negative Npv : Example 119,846

Formula Will Be : L + [ P/ P - N X ( H - L ]
So 10% + [ 52,261/52,261 + 119,846 X ( 20% - 10%)

Just as a note, lindslu, this belongs in finance, not accounting. Or better yet, since it's homework, in the homework help section.
