0 -10,000 -10,000
1 12,000 100
2 100 100

Project A: NPV___________ IRR____________ PI______________

Project B: NPV___________ IRR____________ PI______________

2. RCT is evaluating a project in Columbia. The project will create the following cash flows:

All cash flows will occur in Columbia and are expressed in dollars. In an attempt to improve its economy, the Columbia government has declared that all cash flows created by a foreign company are "blocked" and must be reinvested with the government for one year. The reinvestment rate for these funds is 4 percent. If RCT uses an 11 percent required return on this project, what are the NPV and IRR of the project? Is the IRR you calculated the MIRR of the project? Why or why not?

#### Solution Summary

The solution explains project selection using NPV,IRR and PI. Two mutually exclusive projects are analyzed.
