Capital Budgeting ProblemAnalysis

Imagine that you just completed a course in Financial Management for Entrepreneurs where you learned various techniques and tools in financial analysis.Your uncle Ben wants your advice regarding an investment he is considering. Your uncle owns a furniture company that makes 2 types of furniture:custom-made furniture for consumers and standard furniture for furniture stores.In the past few years, his sales in both these segments have shown a steady increase of 9% annually. He is considering buying 2 types of manufacturing equipment, 1 to make custom furniture and another to make standard furniture, to be able to supply furniture to both market segments. Each type of equipment requires capital in the range of $120,000.Such equipment is generally depreciated over a 5-yeartime frame.Your uncle Ben has applied for a loan of $240,000from a local bank, and he thinks he will get a loan.However, he is not confident that he will get the loan for the entire $240,000. Also, he is not certain of the interest rate. Based on his current financial obligations, he is confident the bank will loan him at least$120,000. Also, he thinks the interest rate could be in the range of 12% to 15%. Let’s refer to the purchase of custom equipment as Project C and the purchase of standard equipment as Project S. The cash flows for these 2equipment purchases are provided below:Cash Flows in $(000)Project Year 0Year 1Year 2Year 3Year 4Year 5Project C-1203555907585
