## Question:

Northwest Compositions, Inc. is considering a project with the following cash flows:

Initial Outlay = $216,000

Cash Flows:

Year 1 = $60,000

Year 2 = $60,000

Year 3 = $60,000

Compute the net present value of this project if the company's discount rate is 12%.

## Answer and Explanation:

{eq}NPV= -Initial Outlay+\displaystyle\frac{FV}{(1+R)^1}+\displaystyle\frac{FV}{(1+R)^2}+\displaystyle\frac{FV}{(1+R)^3} {/eq}

Where,

R= 0.12

FV for year 1-3 = $60,000

Initial Outlay = $216,000

{eq}NPV= -216,000+\displaystyle\frac{60,000}{(1+0.12)^1}+\displaystyle\frac{60,000}{(1+0.12)^2}+\displaystyle\frac{60,000}{(1+0.12)^3} {/eq}

=**-$71,890.12**

**Thus, NPV is -$71,890.12**
