Company makes a deposit of $600,000 on 1/1/01 and a deposit of $400,000 on 1/1/03 into an account that pays interst at 6% compounded semiannually. On 1/1/04, Company transfers the entire balance in the account to a new account that pays interest at 8% compounded quarterly. Company then deposits %500,000 into the account on 1/1/05. On 1/1/07, Company transfers the entire balance in the account to a new account that pays interest at 4% compounded annually. On this same day, Company makes the first of 4 equal annual withdrawals designed to deplete the account

**Compute the

1) amount transfered into the new account on 1/1/04

2) amount of interest earned by Company from 1/1/02 through 1/1/06

3) amount transfered on 1/1/07 to the new account

4) amount of the equal annual withdrawal

5) amount of interest earned during the year of 2007

6) balance in the account on 1/1/08, immediately after makin gthe 2nd equal annual withdrawal

7) amount of decrease in the balance of the account from 1/1/08 to 1/1/09

CLUE MUST MATCH::::The balance in the account at 1/1/07, immediately AFTER the 1st withdrawal, is approximately $1,494,195.

27. Lee Childs is negotiating a contract to do some work for Hass Corp. over the next five years. Hass proposes to pay Lee $10,000 at the end of each of the third, fourth, and fifth years.

1. Your brother has offered to give you $100, starting next year, and after that growing at 3% for the next 20 years. You would like to calculate the value of this offer by calculating how much money you would need to deposit in the local bank so that the account will generate the same cash flows as he is offering you. Your local bank will guarantee a 6% annual interest rate so long as you have money in the account.

a) How much money will you need to deposit into the account today?

b) Using Excel Spreadsheet, show explicitly that you can deposit this amount of money into the account, and every year withdraw what your brother has promised leaving the account with nothing after the last withdrawal.

2. You have decided to buy a perpetuity. The bond makes one payment at the end of every year forever and has an interest rate of 5%. If you initially put $1000 into the bond, what is the payment every year?

Please see the attached file.

The Chinese government is conducting an auction for a joint project involving oil exploration. Because of a desire for U.S. dollars, they require the winning bidder to make an up-front, one-time payment for the rights to join the project and supervise the work. The Chinese government will use the proceeds to cover all of the expenses during the life of the project. The winning bidder will receive a single payment at the end of the ten-year life of the project. This payment, based on the amount of the winning bid, will pay either simple interest of 15 percent annually or 10 percent annually compounded quarterly. Blue Mesa Oil’s bid team has to help evaluate its $47 million bid. First, find out the future value, on a per dollar basis, of each of the two interest payment options. Next, compute the future value of the $47 million bid using each option, and determine which is bigger.

Blue Mesa Oil Company is considering two projects. The As Is Project involves drilling for oil using existing technology. Given the estimated reserves, this project is expected to produce $15.6 million at the end of year 3. Due to the relatively low level of risk involved, management’s required rate of return is 12.5 percent.

The Bedrock project involves using new technology to drill for oil from a field located beneath bedrock. Given the higher risk involved, this project must provide a rate of return of 14.6 percent. If the new technique works, the project is expected to produce $12.4 million in only 2 years. Compute the present value of each project using annual compounding, and report on the relative values and the difference between the two.

1. What interest rate would allow you to accumulate $10,000 in 8 years if you saved $60 per month and earned compounded interest monthly?

2. What amount of money should you pay each month to retire a $12,000 debt in five years if the interest rate on money owed is 10%?

3. If the equivalent annual interest rate is 15% what is the monthly rate that would be compounded to achieve this?

Sam was injured in an accident, and the insurance company has offered him the choice of $49,000 per year for 15 years, with the first payment being made today, or a lump sum. If a fair return is 7.5%, how large must the lump sum be to leave him as well off financially as with the annuity?

SAC is considering the purchase of new equipment to manufacture specialty spark plugs.

The new equipment would allow the firm to manufacture 100,000 additional spark plugs per year and is expected to have a useful life of 5 years and to have no salvage value at that time.

SAC will depreciate the equipment using the straight-line method. Specialty spark plugs are selling for an average price of $20 and are expected to cost $8 to manufacture with the new equipment. Indirect costs are expected to remain the same.

The equipment will cost $3,000,000 to purchase and install. SAC’s tax rate is 34%.

Using the appropriate interest table, provide the solution to each of the following four questions by computing the unknowns.

a) What is the amount of the payments that Ned Winslow must make at the end of each of 8 years to accumulate a fund of $90,000 by the end of the eighth year, if the fund earns 8% interest, compounded annually? (Provide calculation as well)

b) Robert Hitchcock is 40 years old today and he wishes to accumulate $500,000 by his sixty-fifth birthday so he can retire to his summer place on Lake Hopatcong. He wishes to accumulate this amount by making equal deposits on his fortieth through his sixty-fourth birthdays. What annual deposits must Robert make if the fund will earn 12% interest compounded annually? (Provide calculation as well)

c) Diane Ross has $20,000 to invest today at 9% to pay a debt of $47,347. How many years will it take her to accumulate enough to liquidate the debt? (Provide calculation as well)

d) Cindy Houston has a $27,600 debt that she wishes to repay 4 years from today; she has $19,553 that she intends to invest for the 4 years. What rate of interest will she need to earn annually in order to accumulate enough to pay the debt? (Provide calculation as well)

30. You are saving for retirement. To live comfortably, you decide you will need to save $2 million by the time you are 65. Today is your 30th birthday, and you decide, starting today and continuing on every birthday up to and including your 65th birthday, that you will put the same amount into a saving account. If the interest rate is 5%, how much must you set aside each year to make sure that you will have $2 million in the account on your 65th birthday?

31. You realize that the plan in Problem 30 has a flaw. Because your income will increase over your lifetime, it would be more realistic to save less now and more later. Instead of putting the same amount aside each year, you decide to let the amount that you set aside grow by 7% per year. Under this plan, how much will you put into the account today? (Recall that you are planning to make the first contribution to the account today).

4)

What is the present value of $1000 paid at the end of each of the next 100 years if interest rate is 7% per year?

5)

****10% APR compounded annually

****9% APR compounded daily

Compute the EAR for each investment with 365 days in the year

6)Key Bank is offering a 30 year mortgage with an EAR of 5 and 3/8%. If I borrow $ 150,000 what will be my monthly payment?

7)

Can you help? I’m stuck on a few True/False questions…

Chapter 1

1. A financial analyst is responsible for maintaining and controlling the firm’s daily cash balances. Frequently manages the firm’s short-term investments and coordinates short-term borrowing and banking relationships.

2. Finance is concerned with the process institutions, markets, and instruments involved in the transfer of money among and between individuals, businesses and government.

3. Financial services are concerned with the duties of the financial manager.

4. Financial managers actively manage the financial affairs of many types of business-financial and non-financial, private and public, for-profit and not-for-profit.

5. In partnerships, owners have unlimited liability and may have to cover debts of other less financially sound partners.

6. In partnerships, a partner can readily transfer his/her wealth to other partners.

7. The board of directors is responsible for managing day-to-day operations and carrying out the policies established by the chief executive officer.

Chapter 4

8. Since individuals are always confronted with opportunities to earn positive rates of return on their funds, the timing of cash flows does not have any significant economic consequences.

9. Time-value of money is based on the belief that a dollar that will be received at some future date is worth more than a dollar today.

10. Future value is the value of a future amount at the present time, found by applying compound interest over a specified period of time.

11. Interest earned on a given deposit that has become part of the principal at the end of a specified period is called compound interest.

12. The future value interest factor is the future value of $1 per period compounded at i percent for n periods.

13. For a given interest rate, the future value of $100 increases with the passage of time. Thus, the longer the period of time, the greater the future value.

14. The greater the potential return on an investment and the longer the period of time, the higher the present value.

Sheila and Ed have approached you with their problems as highlighted situations 1-5.

Situation #1

Sheila and Ed have $150,000 cash to invest with a bank offering a 4% interest rate. They are not sure whether to invest the cash with interest rate compounded quarterly, semi-annually, or annually. Calculate the balance at the end of 5 years generated by investing $15,000 at 4% in an interest-bearing account that is compounded quarterly, semi-annually, or annually.

Situation #2

Shanghai Winters, one of BC’s biggest customers, has requested a loan with favorable terms. Sheila and Ed decide to offer this customer a $70,000 five-year note receivable. You recommend that since this is your best customer, they offer a 4% interest rate rather than the 7% going rate.

Situation #3

Sheila would like to retire in 10 years. She estimates that her life expectancy upon retirement would be 17 years and she would require $90,000 a year to live comfortably.

1. I am getting ready to buy a new car. I plan on spending $35,000 for the car and I believe my current car has a $17,000 trade-in value and I make no additional downpayment. I keep my vehicles 5 years but would like a three-year loan.

What will my monthly car payment be at the end of each month if the annual interest rate is 12%?

2. My firm is hunkering down and we anticipate a long tough year. We believe that over the winter months, we will need the following funds:

End of Month Shortfall

November $25,000

December $30,000

January $32,000

February $28,000

March $15,000

(a) We are coming off the summer flush with cash by the end of October. How much should we make as a single deposit today to cover the budget shortfalls next winter if we can earn 12% annually on the funds?

(b) If we could earn more than 12% on the funds, what effect would that have on the amount of the single deposit we make today?

3. My husband and I are planning to retire in exactly 10 years. Considering our social security benefits and income from other investments, we have decided that we will need an additional $35,000 per year to be able to travel and explore the world. We believe that we will need these funds for 25 years following retirement (after that, we’ve got long-term care insurance). We anticipate earning 7% on our retirement funds for the 25 years we’ll be active and retired and would like this money available at the end of each year.

We don’t want to worry about depositing into this fund after we retire 10 years from now.

(a) How much must our fund be when we retire in 10 years to provide our 25-year, $35,000 annuity with no worries?

(b) My husband and I discussed things further and decided that we want to set aside the amount we will need to have in the fund today to get it out of the way and we won’t have to worry about anything. How much will we need if we can earn 4% on those funds from now through our 10 years-from-now retirement plan?

(c) What effect would an increase in the rate we can earn both during and prior to retirement have on the values you calculated in (a) and (b)? Explain fully!

4. My firm has an outstanding issue of $1,000 par-value bonds with a 7% coupon interest rate. We pay interest on this issue annually and we have 10 years to its maturity date.

(b) Why would bonds with similar risk to ours be currently earning a return below our 7% coupon interest rate?

(c) What would the current value of our bond be if the required return were at 7% instead of 5%? Contrast this finding with your results from (a) above and explain.

1.) You have just purchased a car and taken out a $50,000 loan. The loan has a five year term with monthly payments and an APR of 6%.

b.) How much will you pay in interest, and how much will you pay in principal, during the fourth year (i.e., between three and four years from now)?

2.) When you purchased your car, you took out a five year annual payment loan with an interest rate of 6% per year. The annual payment on the car is $5000. You have just made a payment and have now decided to pay the loan off by repaying outstanding balance. What is the payoff amount if

a) You have owned the car for one year (so there are four years left on the loan)?

b) You have owned the car for four years (so there is one year left on the loan)?

b. If he wants to pay off the loan in 10 years, what would his annual payment be?

c. How long would it take to pay off the loan after he graduates if he pays his grandfather $15,000 annually.

Apply the concept of present value to Second Life. Suppose Second Life is selling a bond that will pay you $1000 in one year from today. Keep in mind that if Seconbd Life has financial difficulties in one year you might not get your full $1000 back. Given that a dollar one year from now is always worth less than a dollar today, you most certainly would not pay a full $1000 for this bond. Given the concepts of the time value of money, answer the following questions:

1. How much would you pay for this bond today? Take into consideration your own personal risk preferences, interest rates, inflation, and the probability your company will not be able to pay you back in one year.

2. Based on your answer to the previous question, what would be your discount rate for this bond? Use the present value formulas from the background materials and show your work.

3. Pick two other companies in the same industry as your SLP company. One should be one that you would pay less for a $1000 bond than you would from your SLP company and another one that you would pay more for a $1000 bond from your SLP company. Explain why you would pay more or less for their bonds.

Explain the concept of the time value of money. You will need to include and define/explain the concepts of “future value”, annuities, present value, cash flows, compound interest and opportunity cost in your answer

You were selected as the new Chief Executive Officer of OHC Medical Center, a 600-bed hospital in the suburbs of a city with a population of over 1.5 million. The hospital board recently decided to investigate ways to increase revenues. The facility has the benefit of different revenue streams including patient revenue and money from investments.

Assume that you are nearing graduation and that you have applied for a job with a local bank. As part of the Bank’s evaluation process, you have been asked to take an examination that covers several financial analysis techniques. The first section of the test addresses discounted cash flow analysis. See how you would do by answering the following questions.

a. Draw a time line for:

(1) A $100 lump sum cash flow at the end of year 2,

(2) An ordinary annuity of $100 per year for 3 years, and

(3) An uneven cash flow stream of -$50, $100, $75, and $50 at the end of Years 0 through 3.

b. (1) what is the future value of an initial $100 after 3 years if it is invested in an account paying 10% annual interest?

(2) What is the present value of $100 to be received in 3 years if the appropriate interest rate is 10%?

c. We sometimes need to find how long it will take a sum of money (or anything else) to grow to some specified amount. For example, if a company’s sales are growing at a rate of 20% per year, how long will it take sales to double?

d. If you want an investment to double in 3 years, what interest rate must it earn?

e. What is the difference between an ordinary annuity and an annuity due?

What type of annuity is shown below? How would you change it to the other type of annuity?

0 1 2 3 years

100 100 100

f. (1) what is the future value of a 3-year ordinary annuity of $100 if the appropriate interest rate is 10%?

(2) What is the present value of the annuity?

(3) What would the future and present values be if the annuity were an annuity due?

g. What is the present value of the following uneven cash flow stream? The appropriate interest rate is 10%, compounded annually.

0 1 2 3 4

0 100 300 300 -50

h. (1) define:

(a) the stated, or quoted, or nominal rate (INOM) and

(b) the periodic rate (IPER).

(2) Will the future value be larger or smaller if we compound an initial amount more often than annually, for example, every 6 months, or semi-annually, holding the stated interest rate constant? Why?

(3) What is the Future value of $100 after 5 years under 12% annual compounding? Semiannual compounding? Quarterly compounding? Monthly compounding? Daily compounding?

(4) What is the effective annual rate (EFF%)? What is the EFF% for a nominal rate of 12%, compounded semiannually? Compounded quarterly? Compounded monthly? Compounded daily?

i. Will the effective annual rate ever be equal to the nominal (quoted) rate?

j. (1) construct an amortization schedule for a $1,000, 10% annual rate loan with 3 equal installments.

(2) What is the annual interest expense for the borrower, and the annual interest income for the lender, during year 2?

k. Suppose on January 1 you deposit $100 in an account that pays a nominal, or quoted, interest rate of 11.33463%, with interest added (compounded) daily. How much will you have in your account October 1, or after 9 months?

l. (1) What is the value at the end of year 3 of the following cash flow stream if the quoted interest rate is 10%, compounded semiannually?

0 1 2 3 years

100 100 100

(2) What is the PV of the same stream?

(3) Is the stream an annuity?

(4) An important rule is that you should never show a nominal rate on a time line or use it in calculations unless what condition holds? (Hint: think of annual compounding, when INOM = EFF% = IPER.) What would be wrong with your answer to question 1-(1) and 1-(2) if you used the nominal rate (10%) rather than the periodic rate (I NOM/2 = 10% /2 = 5%)?

m. Suppose someone offered to sell you a note calling for the payment of $1,000 fifteen months from today. They offer to sell it to you for $850.00. You have $850.00 in a bank time deposit that pays a 6.76649% nominal rate with daily compounding , which is a 7% effective annual interest rate, and you plan to leave the money in the bank unless you buy the note. The note is not risky- you are sure it will be paid on schedule. Should you buy the note? Check the decision in three ways: (1) by comparing your future value if you buy the note versus leaving your money in the bank, (2) by comparing the PV of the note with your current bank account, and (3) by comparing the EFF% on the note versus that of the bank account.

Beverly started a paper route on January 1, 1995. Every three months, she deposits $300 in her bank account, which earns 8 percent annually but is compounded quarterly. On December 31,1998, she used the entire balance in her bank account to invest in a certificate of deposit at 12 percent annually. How much will she have on December 31, 2001?

Time Value of Money

Time Value of Money is one of the most important concepts in the financial world. The principles of time value analysis have many applications, ranging from setting up schedules for paying off loans to decisions about whether to acquire new equipment for a company. Time value of money is also called discounted cash flow analysis.

Apply the concept of present value to Under Armour, Inc. Suppose Under Armour, Inc is selling a bond that will pay you $2,000 in one year from today. Keep in mind that if Under Armour, Inc has financial difficulties in one year you might not get your full $2,000 back. Given that a dollar one year from now is always worth less than a dollar today, you most certainly would not pay a full $2,000 for this bond.

If you are highly risk averse or strongly prefer having money today to having money tomorrow, then you would pay significantly less than $2,000 for this bond. Higher inflation or high interest rates would also lead you to pay less for the bond. Also, the greater the chance of bankruptcy of your company the less you should be willing to pay for the bond.

Given the concepts of the time value of money :

1) How much would you pay for this bond today? Take into consideration your own personal risk preferences, interest rates, inflation, and the probability your company will not be able to pay you back in one year. Note: no need for any math equations for this part. How much you would personally pay for a $2,000 bond from Under Armour, Inc.

2) Based on your answer to the previous question, what would be your discount rate for this bond? Use the present value formulas.

3) Pick two other companies in the same industry. One should be one that you would pay less for a $2,000 bond than you would from Under Armour, Inc and another one that you would pay more for a $2,000 bond from Under Armour, Inc. Would pay more or less for their bonds.

b. $79,119 if invested for three years at a 4% interest rate

c. $69,124 if invested for seven years at an 2% interest rate

d. $39,929 if invested for ten years with a 0.9% interest rate

3) Calculate the present value of the following:

a. $105,126 to be received three years from now with a 4% Interest rate

b. $228,231 to be received five years from now with a 5% interest rate

c. $192,000 to received two years from now with a 12% interest rate

d. $998,111 to be received eight years from now with a 1% interest rate.

4) Suppose you are to receive a stream of annual payments (also called an “annuity”) of $72,394 every year for three years starting this year. The interest rate is 4%. What is the present value of these three payments?

5) Suppose you are to receive a payment of $189,299 every year for three years. You are depositing these payments in a bank account that pays 2% interest. Given these three payments and this interest rate, how much will be in your bank account in three years?

Assuming that this account pays 8% interest, how much should the year end payments be?

The Acme Company must solve a series of five problems that require you to apply the concept of “time value of money,” or TVM. The five problems are listed below. Solving them will require the use of Microsoft Excel. Before you begin your work, each student is to select a unique nine-digit random number that contains no zeros, no “patterns,” and should use most of the digits between one and nine. This value will be referred to as the student unique number (SUN). Further, digits within the SUN are read from left to right. For example, if the SUN = 123456789, the first digit = 1, the second digit = 2, etc. Please note that the interest rate used in all questions represents an annual rate and all dollar figures are in whole dollars (not dollars and cents).

1. Acme plans to construct a new manufacturing facility in 14 years. If Acme estimates that today’s cost of the new plant is SUN dollars (use all 9 digits) and annual inflation is A% (A = the first digit of SUN), how much will the manufacturing plant cost in 14 years?

2. Acme has decided to establish a sinking fund for its outstanding preferred stock issue. SUN (use all 9 digits) represents the amount of the issue that will be retired in 26 years. At the beginning of each of these 26 years, Acme will deposit an equal amount into an account that earns B% (B = the second digit of SUN). What is the value of this periodic deposit?

3. One of Acme’s new projects will generate the following cash flows at the end of each of the stated years: year 1 = SUN digits 1-3; year 3 = SUN digits 4-6; year 5 = SUN digits 7-9. If these cash flows are discounted at 12%, what is the sum of their present values?

4. Acme is assessing its employee pension fund. At the end of each of the next 23 years Acme will have to pay its retirees (use the first 4 digits of your SUN). If the fund is estimated to earn D% (D = the fourth digit of SUN), how much does Acme need to have set aside today to ensure that it can meet its future obligations? (At the end of the 23th year, the balance should be drawn down to zero.)

5. As part of a new labor contract, Acme has agreed to make a one-time contribution of $1,000,000 to the construction of a new physical fitness facility for its employees. It is estimated that in E years (E = 10 + the fifth digit of SUN) the total cost of the new gym will be $1,850,000. What annual percentage interest rate must the initial contribution earn to attain the required amount in E years? (Note: your answer should be accurate to two decimal places – e.g., 5.79%.)

Prepare for Acme’s CFO an analysis that contains solutions for all five problems. Be sure to clearly present and label all values and variables, provide Excel TVM formulas, and conclude each question with a brief interpretation of your results. Your entire submission must be contained within an Excel document. (Note: You must use Excel TVM functions to complete this assignment; using a hand calculator or website and plugging values into a template is not acceptable.)

Your brother is 55 years old now and his current savings declined to $500000 and he does not feel this is sufficient ,so he works for another 10 years to retire at age 65.He expects to live for another 20 years after he retires he wants to have $100000 to live on each of the 20 years ,the first payment occuring at the time of retirement at 65 years. He will the recieve an additional payment each year for more 19 years . His account will pay 5% annually.

1. How much he should accumulated into his account on the date of retirement 65 to be able to make payments ?

2.How much must he put aside each of next 10 years to achieve this if the payments are made at the end of year starting on his 56 th birthday and his $500000 is still safe.

3.Assume that yours brother is only 45 and he has 20 years to make payments before retiring .how much would he have had to put aside each of the 20 years to achieve his retirement goal?The payments are made at the end of the year starting on 46 th birthday.

Use nominal rate 4.8% compounded monthly:

(1) James and Jane retire with $500,000 in their retirement account. If they want that to last for 25 years, how much can they take out each month.

(2) Nick and Nora are 30 and intend to retire at age 65; they are just starting a retirement plan. How much must they deposit each month so that after retirement, they can draw out $3,500 each month for 20 years?

(3) Mick and Moira are 30 and intend to retire at age 65; they are just starting a retirement plan. How much must they deposit each month so that after retirement, they can take out $30,000 for a wild vacation and then draw out $3,500 each month for 20 years?

See attached file for full problem description. I also attached the relevant lecture slide.

Q1: You are saving for retirement. To live comfortably, you decide you will need to save $2 million by the time you are 65. Today is your 30th birthday, and you decide, starting today and continuing on every birthday up to and including your 65th birthday, that you will put the same amount into a savings account. If the interest rate is 5%, how much must you set aside each year to make sure that you will have $2 million in the account on your 65th birthday?

Q2: You realize that the plan above has a flaw. Because your income will increase over your lifetime, it would be more realistic to save less now and more later. Instead of putting the same amount aside each year, you decide to let the amount that you set aside grow by 7% per year. Under this plan, how much will you put into the account today? (Recall that you are planning to make the first contribution to the account today.)

IRA Investments develops retirement programs for individuals. You are 30 years old and plan to retire on your 60th birthday. You want to establish a plan with IRA that will require a series of equal, annual, end-of-year deposits into the retirement account. The first deposit will be made 1 year from today on your 31st birthday. The final payment on the account will be made on your 60th birthday. The retirement plan will allow you to withdraw $120,000 per year for 15 years, with the first withdrawal on your 61st birthday. Also at the end of the 15th year, you wish to withdraw an additional $250,000. The retirement account promises to earn 12 percent annually.

Directly below these instructions is a blank table to compute PV factors.

Using cell formulas or functions, calculate the PV for the years and interest rates

given. Remember, only use cell formulas and reference the years and interest

rates that are on the borders of the table. Following the tables are TVM problems that

require that you calculate PV, FV, periods, or the interest rate. The answer cell is the

yellow shaded cell. Place your solution in the yellow cell provided below each problem.

Remember use cell formulas throughout. Also, you may use Excel =functions.

The =PV =FV =NPV =IRR =RATE may be helpful. Never hardcode numbers in the

cell formulas. For example, do not put the interest rate or periods in the cell formula,

only reference the proper cell on the border of the table.

Do not add or delete columns or rows, the cell references must be the same as my original.

Time Value of Money?An Application

If you have $10 today, you can invest that $10 and earn interest. If, for example, you earn 5% interest, you will earn $0.50 interest and have a total of $10.50 at the end of one year. If you invest the $10.50 for another year, you will earn $0.53 interest and have a total of $11.03 at the end of the second year. In year two, you earned $0.50 interest on your initial $10 and $0.03 interest on the $0.50 interest earned in year one. Earning interest on interest is called compound interest. The longer you leave your money invested, the greater the compounding effect becomes.

Oftentimes, people project how fast their money will grow and get the idea that they will become so much wealthier sometime in the future. What they often forget is that while their money is growing, the prices of everything they buy are increasing. To really get ahead, your money must grow at a faster pace than the prices of the products you buy.

Answer these questions using Excel functions where applicable.

Show formulas and how the answer was obtained.

On the first question the instructor wants us to use our present age to nearest month. I am 22 years and 2 months.

1. Assume you drink one coffee per day, 5 days a week. Assume coffee is $4.00. That makes it $20 per week and $80 per month. Assume you can invest $80 per month in the stock market and assume you can earn 1% per month on your stock investment.

a. At your retirement, when you are 65 years old, how much will be the total amount of money if you switch from coffee drinking to investing in the stock market?

b. Assume that when you get to 65, you switch your funds from stock market investment to bond market investment. Assume you can earn 7% on your bond investment. You decide to withdraw a constant amount each year for the next 20 years when get to retirement age. How much will be your annual withdrawal from age 66 to 85 (nothing left at 85) if you switch your coffee drinking to stock and bond investments?

I need some guidance to be able to complete my assignment. i don’t have my accounting books with me. My SUN number is 457123896. I will appreciate any help that you can provide.

The Acme Company must solve a series of five problems that require you to apply the concept of “time value of money,” or TVM. The five problems are listed below. Solving them will require the use of Microsoft Excel. Before you begin your work, each student is to select a unique nine-digit random number that contains no zeros, no “patterns,” and should use most of the digits between one and nine. This value will be referred to as the student unique number (SUN). Further, digits within the SUN are read from left to right. For example, if the SUN = 123456789, the first digit = 1, the second digit = 2, etc. Please note that the interest rate used in all questions represents an annual rate and all dollar figures are in whole dollars (not dollars and cents).

1. Acme plans to construct a new manufacturing facility in 14 years. If Acme estimates that today’s cost of the new plant is SUN dollars (use all 9 digits) and annual inflation is A% (A = the first digit of SUN), how much will the manufacturing plant cost in 14 years?

2. Acme has decided to establish a sinking fund for its outstanding preferred stock issue. SUN (use all 9 digits) represents the amount of the issue that will be retired in 26 years. At the beginning of each of these 26 years, Acme will deposit an equal amount into an account that earns B% (B = the second digit of SUN). What is the value of this periodic deposit?

3. One of Acme’s new projects will generate the following cash flows at the end of each of the stated years: year 1 = SUN digits 1-3; year 3 = SUN digits 4-6; year 5 = SUN digits 7-9. If these cash flows are discounted at 12%, what is the sum of their present values?

4. Acme is assessing its employee pension fund. At the end of each of the next 23 years Acme will have to pay its retirees (use the first 4 digits of your SUN). If the fund is estimated to earn D% (D = the fourth digit of SUN), how much does Acme need to have set aside today to ensure that it can meet its future obligations? (At the end of the 23th year, the balance should be drawn down to zero.)

5. As part of a new labor contract, Acme has agreed to make a one-time contribution of $1,000,000 to the construction of a new physical fitness facility for its employees. It is estimated that in E years (E = 10 + the fifth digit of SUN) the total cost of the new gym will be $1,850,000. What annual percentage interest rate must the initial contribution earn to attain the required amount in E years? (Note: your answer should be accurate to two decimal places – e.g., 5.79%.)

Prepare for Acme’s CFO an analysis that contains solutions for all five problems. Be sure to clearly present and label all values and variables, provide Excel TVM formulas, and conclude each question with a brief interpretation of your results. Your entire submission must be contained within an Excel document. (Note: You must use Excel TVM functions to complete this assignment; using a hand calculator or website and plugging values into a template is not acceptable.)

Objective: Propose realistic managerial options on capital structure for the multinational firm.

Discuss the opportunities provided by technology for businesses.

1) Calculating Annuity Present Value. An investment offers $6,000 per year for 15 years, with the first payment occurring 1 year from now. If the required return is 8 percent, what is the value of the investment? What would the value be if the payments occurred for 40 years? For 75 years? Forever?

2) Calculating Annuity Future Values If you deposit $2,000 at the end of each of the next 20 years into an account paying 7.5 percent interest, how much money will you have in the account in 20 years? How much will you have if you make deposits for 40 years?

3) EAR versus APR. Ricky Ripov’s Pawn Shop charges an interest rate of 20 percent per month on loans to its customers. Like all lenders, Ricky must report an APR to consumers. What rate should the shop report? What is the effective annual rate?

4) Calculating Loan Payments. You want to buy a new sports coupe for $52,350, and the finance office at the dealership has quoted you an 8.6 percent APR loan for 60 months to buy the car. What will your monthly payments be? What is the effective annual rate on this loan?

5) Calculating Annuity Future Values. You are to make monthly deposits of $200 into a retirement account that pays 11 percent interest compounded monthly. If your first deposit will be made one month from now, how large will your retirement account be in 30 years?

1) You are considering buying an expensive Fancycar MSRP $99,000. The dealer has offered you 2 alternatives for purchasing the car:

a. You buy the car for $90,000 I cash and get a $9,000 discount

b. You can buy the car for $99,000 with a down payment of $39,000. The balance is a zero interest loan to be paid back in 36 equal installments.

Alternatively, your bank is willing to give you a car loan at an annual rate of 10%. Decide how to finance the car: bank loan, zero percent interest loan with the dealer or cash payment.

2) Michael is considering his consumption habits, trying to figure out how to save money. He realizes that he could save $2 every day by ordering regular coffee instead of a lattee at the coffee store. Because he buys coffee every work day, this works out to $10 per week, which amounts to a savings of $520 per year.

a. If Michael is 25 today and retires at age 65, how much will he have accumulated from savings on coffee versus latte? Assume that the interest rate is 4% and that the $520 savings occur at the end of each year.

1. Housing rates have rapidly increased, and you have decided to save to buy your first house. You expect to save $1500 per month at the end of each month for the next 3 years, investing these funds in a mutual fund you expect to earn 6.5% interest, compounded monthly. At the end of three years of savings, you will buy the house with your savings, and use the $1500 per month as your mortgage payments. If interest rates on mortgages are 7% compounded monthly in three years, and you will take a 30-year mortgage, paying at the beginning of each month.

a. How much of a mortgage can you obtain given the above information?

b. How much of a down payment will you have saved to buy your house in 3 years?

c. What is the total value of the house you will be able to purchase given this information?

2. A friend of yours just won the lottery. She has been given the choice of $5,000,000 today, or $700,000 per year for the next 10 years, at the beginning of each year.. If she received the $5 million immediately, she would invest in a balanced asset fund she expects to earn 8%, compounded annually. Which option should she take?

3. You are saving for retirement with a $4,000 investment in a traditional IRA at the end of each year, and are investing the funds into a mutual fund you expect to earn 7.75% interest, compounded quarterly.

a. How much will you have saved towards retirements in 35 years if you make your investment on Jan. 1 each year?

b. How much will you have saved towards retirement in 35 years if you make your investment on December 31 each year?

4. You have decided to start investing in the stock market, and buy a small cap mutual fund with a price of $31. The fund’s value has been growing at 14% per year.

a. How many years will it take the fund’s price to triple in price at this growth rate?

b. If you hold the fund for 6 years, then sell it at $72, compute the growth rate for each year.

5. You have a credit card offer. It carries an 18% interest rate, compounds monthly, and you will transfer $2,000 to the card. If you pay the minimum payment of 2% of the balance, or $40 at the end of each month, how many years will it be before you pay off the balance completely? To solve this algebraically, you have to manipulate the equation to isolate the unknown variable, then use natural logs to solve.

Johnny has a technology that will be available in the near term. He anticipates his first annual cash flow from the technology to be $215,000, received two years from today. Subsequent annual cash flows will grow at 4% in perpetuity. What is the present value of the technology if the discount rate is 10%?

What is the relationship between the value of an annuity and the level of interest rates? Suppose you just bought a 12 year annuity of $7,500 per year at the current interest rate of 10% per year. What happens to the value of your investment if interest rates suddenly drop to 5%? What if interest rates suddenly rise to 15%?

use formula or calculator, not excel

This week we learn how to calculate the time value of money and why it is an important equation. It is fairly certain that this equation will become relevant in our lives. Drawing on your personal experience and/or future expectations, come up with an example where the time value of money would be important to you. Develop the values, draft the scenario and work out the equation in your answer. How would your answer change if interest rates skyrocketed 3 years from now?

The Acme Company must solve a series of five problems that require you to apply the concept of “time value of money,” or TVM. The five problems are listed below. Solving them will require the use of Microsoft Excel. Before you begin your work, each student is to select a unique nine-digit random number that contains no zeros, no “patterns,” and should use most of the digits between one and nine. This value will be referred to as the student unique number (SUN). Further, digits within the SUN are read from left to right. For example, if the SUN = 123456789, the first digit = 1, the second digit = 2, etc. Please note that the interest rate used in all questions represents an annual rate and all dollar figures are in whole dollars (not dollars and cents).

5. As part of a new labor contract, Acme has agreed to make a one-time contribution of $1,000,000 to the construction of a new physical fitness facility for its employees. It is estimated that in E years (E = 10 + the fifth digit of SUN) the total cost of the new gym will be $1,850,000. What annual percentage interest rate must the initial contribution earn to attain the required amount in E years? (Note: your answer should be accurate to two decimal places – e.g., 5.79%.)

1) Will annual payments of $4800 be sufficient to repay a loan of $40,000 in 20 years of an interest rate of

10% compounded annually?

10% compounded continuously?

12% compounded quarterly?

2) Maintenance costs for a new piece of mining equipment are expected to be $20,000 in the first year, rising by $1,000 per year thereafter. The machine has an expected life of 8 years and interest is 10% annually. To evaluate bids from outside firms for a maintenance contract you need to know the present value of these costs. What is this value?

In question 8 if the maintenance costs rose by 6% per year instead of the fixed amount what is the present value of the maintenance costs?

What will $1,130 amount to in 5 years at 5% interest?

What is the present value of $10,000 due in 11 years time at 5% compound interest?

The power cost of running a pump is $1,900 per year; determine the present value of this expenditure over 15 years at 6% interest.

A machine is purchased for $50,000 and costs $30,000 per year in electrical and maintenance costs. The estimated life is 15 years and interest is at 6% compound. What is the total annual cost of this machine?

A bank offers an annual interest rate of 10% compounded continuously for savings in excess of $1000 or more deposited for over 2 years. If $1642 is deposited on the first of January 1999 how much would this amount to in July 2001?

If income from the sales of an item occurs continuously at the rate of $17,000 per year and is immediately deposited into an account that yields 12% per year, compounded continuously, how much would accumulate at the end of 3 years?

Assume that you inherited some money. A friend of yours is working as an unpaid intern at a local brokerage firm, and her boss is selling securities that call for 4 payments, $50 at the end of each of the next 3 years, plus a payment of $1,050 at the

end of Year 4. Your friend says she can get you some of these securities at a cost of $900 each. Your money is now invested in a bank that pays an 8% nominal (quoted) interest rate but with quarterly compounding.

You regard the securities as being just as safe, and as liquid, as your bank deposit, so your required effective annual rate of return on the securities is the same as that on your bank deposit. You must calculate the value of the securities to decide whether they are a good investment. What is their present value to you?

A friend plans to buy a big-screen TV/entertainment system and can afford to set aside $1,320 toward the purchase today. If your friend can earn 5.0%, how much can your friend spend in four years on the purchase? Round off to the nearest $1.

a. $1,444

b. $1,604

c. $1,764

d. $1,283.

Babe Ruth Jr. has agreed to play for the Cleveland Indians for $3 million per year the next ten years. What table would you use to calculate the value of this contract in today’s dollars? A)Present value of an annuity, B)Present value of a single amount, C)Future value of an annuity, D)None of the above

Old Alfred Road, who is well-known to drivers on the Maine Turnpike, has reached his seventieth birthday and is ready to retire. Mr. Road has no formal training in finance but has saved his money and invested carefully.

Mr. Road owns his home?the mortgage is paid off?and does not want to move. He is a widower, and he wants to bequeath the house and any remaining assets to his daughter. He has accumulated savings of $180,000, conservatively invested.

The investments are yielding 9 percent interest. Mr. Road also has $12,000 in a savings account at 5 percent interest. He wants to keep the savings account intact for unexpected expenses or emergencies.

Mr. Road’s basic living expenses now average about $1,500 per month, and he plans to spend $500 per month on travel and hobbies. To maintain this planned standard of living, he will have to rely on his investment portfolio. The interest from the portfolio is $16,200 per year (9 percent of $180,000), or $1,350 per

month.

Mr. Road will also receive $750 per month in social security payments for the rest of his life. These payments are indexed for inflation. That is, they will be automatically increased in proportion to changes in the consumer price index.

Mr. Road’s main concern is with inflation. The inflation rate has been below 3 percent recently, but a 3 percent rate is unusually low by historical standards. His social security payments will increase with inflation, but the interest on his investment portfolio will not.

What advice do you have for Mr. Road? Can he safely spend all the interest from his investment portfolio? How much could he withdraw at year-end from that portfolio if he wants to keep its real value intact?

Suppose Mr. Road will live for 20 more years and is willing to use up all of his investment portfolio over that period. He also wants his monthly spending to increase along with inflation over that period. In other words, he wants his monthly spending to stay the same in real terms. How much can he afford to spend per month?

Assume that the investment portfolio continues to yield a 9 percent rate of return and that the inflation rate will be 4 percent

If you invest $100,000 today at 12% per year over the next 15 years, what is the most you can spend in equal amounts out of the fund each year over that time.

1) Dr. Oats, a nutrition professor, invests $80,000 in a piece of land that is expected to increase in value by 14 percent per year for the next five years. She will then take the the proceeds and provide herself with a 10- year annuity. Assuming a 14% interest rate for the annuity how much will this be?

2) I have a contract in which I will receive the following payments for the next five years: $3000, $4000, $5000, $6000, and $7000. Then I will receive an annuity of $9000 a year from the end of the sixth through the end of the 15th year. The discount rate is 13%. If I am offered $40,000 to cancel the contract should I ?

1. Bozeman’s Best Inc. is establishing a pension plan for its sole employee. He will receive credit for 12 years of prior service and is expected to work 18 years until retirement. After retirement, he is expected to collect annual pension payments for 17 years. His current salary is $75,000 with estimated future pay increases to average 5% per year. What will be the initial amount of projected benefit obligation (i.e., prior service cost) at the inception of the plan if the benefit formula is final year’s annual salary times years of service times 2%? You may assume ordinary annuities and end-of-year annual payments upon retirement and 8% per annum discount rate.

2. Using the facts above (but not related to the answer to #1), assume that the Bozeman’s Best pension plan must have $869,000 in plan assets at the date the employee retires. If the company wants to make 18 equal annual payments at the end of each year of service to fund the plan, what is the amount of the annual contribution? Assume that the plan assets are expected to earn a 10% return.

1.) John Longwaite will receive $100,000 in 50 years. His friends are very jealous of him. If the funds are discounted back at a rate of 14 percent, what is the present value of his future “pot of gold”?

2.) Al Lopez invests $2,000 in a mint condition Nolan Ryan baseball card. He expects the card to increase in value by 20 percent a years for the next five years. After that, he anticipates a 15 percent annual increase for the next three years. What is the projected value of the card after eight years?

3.) You wish to retire in 20 years, at which time you want to have accumulated enough money to receive an annuity of $12,000 for 25 years after retirement. During the period before retirement you can earn 8 percent annually, while after retirement you can earn 10 percent on your money.

What annual contributions to the retirement fund will allow you to receive the $12,000 annuity?

4.6) For an interest rate of 12% per year compounded every 2 months, determine the nominal interest rate per (a) 4 months, (b) 6 months, (c) 2 years.

4.11) What nominal interest rate per year is equivalent to an effective 16% per year, compounded semiannually?

Bridget Jones has a contract in which she will receive the following payments for the next five years: $1,000, $2,000, $3,000, $4,000, and $5,000. She will then receive an annuity of $8,500 a year from the end of the 6th through the end of the 15th year. The appropriate discount rate is 14 percent. If she is offered $30,000 to cancel the contract, should she do it?
