Question:

Honda Motors is evaluating a new piece of equipment that will automatically install power windows in cars coming off the production line. The equipment cost is $3.5 million, and the firm estimates that the present value of the annual cost savings from installing the equipment is $2.8 million. The production manager is also considering purchasing a module that will allow the equipment to be used for Honda's SUV production. The additional module represents a real option with a cost of $1.1 million dollars. The production manager estimates that adding the module would give Honda cost savings of an additional $2.0 million. What is the profitability of the project before and after considering the real option?

Muhammad Huzaifa Y.
Answer:

The profitability of the project before considering the real option is the difference between the cost savings and the cost of the equipment, or 2.8M-3.5M= $700,000. The profitability of the project after considering the real option = NPV (based on the project alone) cost of option + value of the option. The cost of the option is $1.1 million, while the value of the option is $2.0 million. Profitability after option = 0.7M-1.1M+2.0M = $200,000.

Question:

John is an investor and he buys a share at the beginning of the year 2X10 (t=0) for $135. At the end of the year 2X10 (t=1), he buys another share at the market value of $160. Both the shares give the dividend of $4 per share during this year. At the end of year 2X11 (t=2), John sells both the shares for $210 each. Calculate the annual time-weighted rate of return of John’s investment.

Muhammad Huzaifa Y.
Answer:

Step 1: There are two holding periods in this question. Holding period 1: Value at the beginning of 2X10=$135 Dividends paid= $4 Value at the end of 2X10=160 Holding period 2: Value at the beginning of 2X11=$320 (two shares @ $160 each) Dividends paid= $8 (two shares@ $4 each) Value at the end of 2X10= $420 Step 2: Calculate the HPR HPR 1: [(160+4)/135]-1=21% HPR 2: [(420+8)/320]-1=33.75% Step 3: Calculate annual time weighted rate of return: (1+time weighted rate of return)^2 = (1.21)(1.3375)= 27.22%
