DACA is considering building a mall at the cost of $9 million at

t=0. The project is expected to last for 5 years with revenues of

$3.8 million per year, cost of 1 million per year and the

depreciation expense is fixed at $0.9 million per year. The net

present value (NPV) of the project should be calculated assuming

that the mall will be sold for $1.5 million (after taxes) at the

end of year 5. Notice that no depreciation expenses (tax shields)

will be possible after selling the mall. The cost of capital is

assumed to be 12% and tax rate 15%. Estimate the NPV of the project

and answer the following questions: 1. What is the NPV of the

project? Select A, B or C 2. Suppose now that there is a 50%

probability that the government impose a new income tax such that

instead of 15% , it goes up to 35% What is the expected NPV under

this scenario? Select D, E or F 3. Now assume that at the end of

the year 1 the company will be able to know if the government

passes the new tax of 35%. In that case DACA has the option to

abandon the project and sell the mall in $8.2 million. What is the

Expected NPV with this option to abandon? Select G, H or I 4. What

is the value of the option to abandon? select J, K, or L

Question 3 options:

A) The NPV of the project is $1.97 million

B) The NPV of the project is $1.79 million

C) The NPV of the project is $0.917 million

D) The Expected NPV of the project is $3.22 million

E) The Expected NPV of the project is $0.232 million

F) The Expected NPV of the project is -$3.22 million

G) The Expected NPV with option to Abandon is -$2.75 million

H) The Expected NPV with option to Abandon is $0.572 million

I) The Expected NPV with option to Abandon is $2.57 million

J) The Value of the Option is $0.340 million

K) The Value of the Option is zero

L) The Value of the Option is $1.454 million
