expansion would require a purchase of equipment with a price of euro 1,200,000 and additional

installation of euro 300,000. The new product line is expected to increase net revenues by euro

300,000 for the next 10 years. The equipment is multipurpose and the firm anticipates that they

will sell it at the end of the 10th

year for euro 500,000. The initial investment (at year 0) also

requires an increase in Net Working Capital of euro 100,000 (to be recovered at the end of 10th

year). The current spot rate is \$0.95/euro, and the expected inflation rate in the U.S. is 2% per

year and 5% per year in Europe.

Use Spreadsheet to carry out the following calculations (show your formulas in each cell):

i. Based on the relative version of purchasing power parity relationship, calculate the

expected appreciation/depreciation in euro and forecast the expected exchange rate

for the next 10 years.

ii. Develop the timeline of cash flows (years 0 – 10) in euros

iii. Use the spot exchange rate and your forecasted exchange rate to calculate the timeline

of future cash flows (years 0-10) in dollar terms.

iv. Compute the IRR of the project

v. Compute the NPV of the project at discount rates of (a) 8% (b) 9% (c) 11% (d) 14%.

vi. Plot in graph (you can use scatter with smooth lines option) the Net Present Values at

above mentioned discount rates and show the IRR in the graph.

vii. Based on IRR and NPV calculations, comment if the project is acceptable or not at

the above discount rates.
