Question No. 1

# Ecodevelopment Company has two mutually exclusive construction projects to evaluate. Each type of project can be duplicated repeatedly in different geographic locations around the country, but each requires a very different set of assets to construct. Thus, Ecodevelopment uses the equivalent annual annuity method to evaluate such projects. Project type A costs $6 million initially and generates expected end-of-year cash flows of $3 million, $5 million, and then $10 million when it is sold after 3 years. Project type B costs $9 million initially and has projected end-of-year cash flows of $3, $3, $6, and $6 million in Year 1 through Year 4, and then $10 million in Year 5. The project types are equally risky and the firm's cost of capital is 12 percent. What is the EAA of the higher valued project type?
