Project's risk-adjusted net present value

The G. Wolfe Corporation is examining two capital-budgeting projects with 5-year lives. The first, project A, is a replacement project; the second, project B, is a project unrelated to current operations. The G. Wolfe Corporation uses the risk adjusted discount rate method and groups projects according to purpose, and then uses a required rate of return or discount rate that has been preassigned to that purpose or risk class. The expected cash flows for these projects are given here:

PROJECT A PROJECT B

Initial investment $250,000 & $400,000

Cash inflows:
Year 1 $130,000 $135,000
Year 2 40,000 135,000
Year 3 50,000 135,000
Year 4 90,000 135,000
Year 5 130,000 135,000

The purpose/risk classes and preassigned required rates of return are as follows:

PURPOSE REQUIRED RATE OF RETURN

Replacement decision 12%
Modification or expansion of existing product line 15
Project unrelated to current operations 18
Research and development operations 20
