Use the following information to answer the next TWO questions. Oyvey Inc. has
expected before-tax operating cash flows of $72,000 each year for the next ten years from
a planned project. The Corporate Tax rate is 20% but it has a special deal with the
government so that it pays tax for the first four years, but then does not pay tax for the
rest of the life of the project. The appropriate discount rate is 20%.
5. What is the Present Value as of now of the AFTER-TAX operating cash flows from
the first four years of the project?
a)$115,469
b) $121,732
c)$136,427
d) $149,111
e)None of the above
6. What is the Present Value as of now of the AFTER-TAX operating cash flows from
the last six years of the project? (Hint: If a firm is does not pay tax, what is its tax rate?)
a)$115,469
b) $136,427
c)$194,231
d) $239,437
e)None of the above
Use the following information for the next 9 questions (number 7 to 15).
It is 1898 and you are in Dawson City, Yukon, Canada. You sit down beside the Yukon
River for a picnic lunch. You look at the water, and see a glitter of yellow. It’s gold; ten
tons of it. You plan to mine five tons of it per year for two years. Gold sells for $5 per
ounce, there are 16 ounces in a pound, and 2000 pounds in a ton.
It will cost you $1 per ounce to mine the gold, and there is a $60,000 one time up-front
fee for equipment and permits and stuff. The equipment will be worthless after the ore is
mined.
In 1898, the Government still hasn’t gotten around to the idea of taxes on business
income. You can borrow money for 8% per year and investors will buy shares in your
new Corporation if they receive on average at least 18% per year. You think that you
will finance your firm with equal amounts of debt and equity. All variable revenues and
expenses occur at the end of each year.
7. What are your firm’s annual revenues?
a)$160,000
b) $800,000
c)$1,600,000

in year one versus those in year two without more information than is provided in
the case
