The following information pertains to Fairways Driving Range, Inc.: The company is considering operating a new driving range facility in Sanford, FL. In order to do so, they will need to purchase a ball dispensing machine, a ball pick-up vehicle and a tractor and accessories for a total cost of$103,000. All of this depreciable equipment will be 5-year MACRS property. The project is expected to operate for 6 years, at the end of which the equipment will be sold for 25% of its original cost. Fairways expects to have $33,000 of fixed costs each year other than depreciation. These fixed costs include the cost of leasing the land for the driving range. Fairways expects to have sales for the first year of$103,000 based on renting 20,600 buckets of balls @ $5 per bucket. For years 2-6, they expect the number of buckets rented to steadily increase by 1,100 buckets per year, while the price will remain constant @$4. Expenditures needed for buckets and balls each year are expected to be 23% of the gross revenues for the year. Fairways will be in the 35% tax bracket for all years in question.
The company has a required capital structure of 40% debt and 60% equity. They can issue new bonds to yield 5.5%. With respect to equity, the company’s beta is 1.85 the expected return on the market is 12% and the risk-free rate is 7%. Use this information to compute the company’s WACC and then use the WACC as the required return for this project. Please complete the following tables to determine the NPV for Fairways Driving Range, Inc.’s proposed Sanford venture. PLEASE ROUND ALL FIGURES TO THE NEAREST WHOLE DOLLAR!
For each year of the project, compute the profit margin and EPS (assuming that the firm has 16,000 shares of stock outstanding). Besides the net value of the fixed assets, the company also expects to have $20,000 of other assets.

XYZ Corporation, an Australian based carmaker, is considering an expansion into Asia after its expansion into the US last summer was highly successful. Currently, XYZ does export cars to Asia, but the increased demand raises the question of an expansion in Asia. XYZ is trying to decide whether to establish a car manufacturing plant and office in Japan where cars would be built and then sold across Asia. All relevant data is given in the tables below. The cost of the expansion is Yen 80,000,000, which must be immediately expended. Three-year EBITDA are 35,000,000 45,000,000 and 55,000,000 respectively. Moreover, XYZ would have to fund additional working capital of Yen 5,000,000 at the time of the expansion. Further investment in net working capital would be Yen 5,000,000, Yen 8,000,000, and Yen 10,000,000 in year 1, 2, and 3 respectively. If it builds the plant, XYZ will depreciate it at a rate of Yen 4,000,000 per year (starting in year 1) and will have to fund additional capital expenditures of Yen 8,000,000 per year to maintain and improve the plant. Although the project is assumed to have an infinite life, cash-flows are only projected up to three years and the terminal value of the project is computed based on the year 3 free cash-flow (FCF) assuming a growth rate that equals the Japanese long-run GDP growth rate. All taxes are paid in Japan in the year the income is earned. Tax treaties are in effect so that XYZ will have no tax obligations to the Australian Tax Office (ATO).

For a new project of a company to increase the manufacturing capacity for five years, it will purchase new equipment for$1,500,000 and be housed in a building purchased eight years ago for $4,200,000. The building will be retooled for the new project at a cost of$500,000, including building permit fees of $25,000. The purchased equipment will be depreciated using Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) depreciation schedule, and sold for$250,000 in year 5.

The projected revenue for year 1 is $550,000. Subsequent year’s revenues will increase by eight percent of the preceding year’s revenues. This expansion project will result in an annual loss of revenues from an existing manufacturing operation of$100,000. Operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization) is estimated at 20 percent of net revenues.
