1. The difference between the present value of an investment?s future cash flows and its initial cost is the:

  • net present value.
  • internal rate of return.
  • payback period.
  • profitability index.
  • discounted payback period.

 

  1. Which statement concerning the net present value (NPV) of an investment or a financing project is correct?
  • A financing project should be accepted if, and only if, the NPV is exactly equal to zero.
  • An investment project should be accepted only if the NPV is equal to the initial cash flow.
  • Any type of project should be accepted if the NPV is positive and rejected if it is negative.
  • Any type of project with greater total cash inflows than total cash outflows, should always be accepted.
  • An investment project that has positive cash flows for every time period after the initial investment should be accepted.

  1. The primary reason that company projects with positive net present values are considered acceptable is that:
  • they create value for the owners of the firm.
  • the project's rate of return exceeds the rate of inflation.
  • they return the initial cash outlay within three years or less.
  • the required cash inflows exceed the actual cash inflows.
  • the investment's cost exceeds the present value of the cash inflows.

 

  1. Accepting a positive net present value (NPV) project:
  • indicates the project will pay back within the required period of time.
  • means the present value of the expected cash flows is equal to the project’s cost.
  • ignores the inherent risks within the project.
  • guarantees all cash flow assumptions will be realized.
  • is expected to increase the stockholders’ value by the amount of the NPV.
