11%. A couple of years back (in the 1990s) ABC Ltd. earnings and dividends were growing @18% p.a.

Mini Case – 3                                                                                                 [Max. Marks 15]

You have been working as a financial analyst for a reputed company. One of the partners of the company wants his son Mr. Aman to be involved in the finance division.

His son will be working together with you. You have been provided with the task to evaluate the investment proposals. There are three investment projects, X, Y, and Z all of the three projects are mutually exclusive.Year 0 1 2 3
Project X (INR) (15,000) 11,000 7,000 4,800
Project Y (INR) (15,000) 3,500 8,000 13,000
Project Z (INR) (15,000) 42,000 (4,000) -
Mr. Aman feels that the investment proposal X and Y are the same in terms of investment required. He also feels that Project Z gives us the maximum cash flow.

Because of the limited understanding of capital budgeting techniques Mr. Aman is unable to identify the most feasible investment proposal.
You are required to make Mr. Aman understand:

1)  How investment projects are evaluated. What are the various methods which we can use to evaluate any investment project? What are the factors we should consider while evaluating any investment proposal?                                                                    [5 Marks]

2)  How to evaluate projects(X, Y, Z) considering all the discounted cash flow techniques and the payback period. You believe that all three projects have similar risk characteristics and a discount rate of 10% can be applied to all of the projects. Given that all the three projects are mutually exclusive which project should you select and why?
[5 Marks]

3)  How can we rate the project if discount rates are, 8%, 9%, and 12%? Compare it with
IRR of the respective projects.                                                                              [5 Marks]
