Problem 6-1

GBK, Inc. is considering a new product. The proposal is as follows:
Project cost: $2,000,000
Project life: 5 yrs
Salvage value: zero
Depreciation: straight line to zero
Sales projection: 180 units per year
Price per unit: $20,000
Variable cost per unit will be: $12,400
Fixed costs per year: $490,000
Required return on the project: 10%
Relevant tax rate: 35%
Based on our past experience, the unit sales, variable costs and fixed cost projections are probably accurate to within plus or minus 10%

A] What are the upper and lower bounds for these projections?

B] What is the base case NPV?

C] What are the best case NPV and the worst case NPV scenarios?

D] Evaluate the sensitivity of your base-case NPV to changes in fixed costs.

E] What is the cash break-even level of output for this project (ignoring taxes)?

F] What is the accounting break-even level of output for this project? What is the degree of operating leverage at the accounting break-even point? How do you interpret this number?

Problem 6-2

You purchased one GBK, Inc. 6 percent coupon bond one year ago for $1,020. The bond makes annual payments and matures four years from now. You sell the bond today when the required return is 5 percent. The inflation rate was 2.8 percent over the past year. What was the real return on your investment?

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"

Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied

I was shocked by how your writers managed to deliver my paper on time, and I was among the best in our class in that paper. Thank you so much and I will never hesitate to use you
