The managers of Merton Medical Clinic are analyzing a proposed project. The project's most likely Net Present Value (NPV) is $120,000, but, as evidenced by the following NPV distribution, there is considerable risk involved:

Probability NPV
0.05 $-700,000
0.2 $-250,000
0.5 $120,000
0.2 $200,000
0.05 $300,000

a. What are the project's expected NPV and standard deviation of NPV?
b. Should the base case analysis use the most likely NPV or expected NPV? Explain your answer.
