Capital Budgeting
Qantas’s wishes to further develop their frequent flyer loyalty program by introducing a range of leisure facilities to their members. It is considering investing in one of two projects, developing a golf course on the Gold Coast or purchasing a casino in Perth. The golf course on the Gold Coast requires an initial investment now of $ 1.8m and further investments at the end of years 1, 3 and 5 of $ 1.2 m each. In addition, it will also incur working capital expenses at the beginning of the project of $0.4 m and recover these at the end of year 8. The Golf course will generate cash inflows of $ 0.8 m starting the end of year 1, $1.6m each in years 2, 3 and 4 and $ 1.8m each through years 5 to 8. At the end of year 8 the course will be sold for $ 0.6m. Qantas is able to claim an annual depreciation of $0.15m from years 1 to 5 and pays tax at 30%. The casino in Perth requires one-off initial investment of $ 5m now and will generate cash inflows of $0.6m starting end of year 1, $1.8m each in years 2, 3 and 4 increasing to $ 2m every year for the next 4 years. The Casino will be sold at the end of this for $ 0.4m; Qantas will not qualify for any depreciation on this project and will pay tax at 30%. a) Calculate the Net Present Value (NPV) for each of the two investment options, assume that the WACC for Qantas is 10%. (Do NOT use the WACC you have calculated in the earlier questions. 10 marks) b) Which investment will you recommend for Qantas? (5 marks) c) Qantas is also considering investing in the Venezuelan oil industry as an alternative. Given the recent economic hardships in Venezuela (See Source 5), Venezuelan government is looking to privatise portions of the country’s oil industry. Venezuelan government offered to sell one oil field to Qantas. Assume that the NPV for the oil field project is higher than that of the gold course and the casino under the same WACC of 10%. Should Qantas invest in the oil field instead of the gold course and the casino? What could be the potential dangers? What adjustments in terms of discount rate would you recommend? (Discuss the adjustment directions and the reasons, no calculations needed, 10 marks)

Net Present Value
Case Analysis 3 – Weight 40% of total assignment You are the General Manager at the Bicker, Slaughter, and Lynch Law Firm. There is an opportunity to buy out a small law firm that was just started by a young MBA/JD, and you believe the firm can be grown and become a lucrative part of your Firm. With help from your finance leader, you have estimated the following benefit streams for this new division: You estimate that the purchase price for this firm would be $200,000 and that additional net working capital would be needed in the amount of $60,000 in year 0, an additional $20,000 in year 2 and then $20,000 in year 5. BSL usually spend about $275,000 per year in advertising. If you make this acquisition, you would ask that advertising spending be increased by an incremental one-time amount of $50,000 in year 0 to publicize the firm’s expansion. Your finance leader has indicated that the firm has access to a credit line and could borrow the funds at a rate of 6%. He also mentions that when he runs project economics for capital budgeting (such as a new copier or a company car), he recommends a standard 10% rate discount, but the one other time they looked at an acquisition of a smaller firm, he used a 12% rate discount. Obviously you will want to select the most appropriate discount rate for this type of project. At the end of 8 years, the plan will be to sell this division. The estimated terminal value (the sale and the return of working capital) is conservatively estimated to be $300,000 of after-tax cash flow help. Using the data that you need (and ignoring the extraneous information), calculate the Nominal Payback, the Discounted Payback, the Net Present Value, and the IRR for this potential acquisition.
