b. 2000 

c. 15000 

d. None of the above

5. Petroleum Inc. owns a lease to extract crude oil from sea. It is considering the construction of a deep-sea oil rig at a cost of $50 million (I0) and is expected to remain constant. The price of oil is $50 /bbl and the extraction costs are $20 /bbl. The quantity of oil Q = 200,000 bbl per year forever. The risk-free rate is 10% per year, which is also the cost of capital (Ignore taxes). Calculate the NPV to invest today  

a. +10,000,000 

b. +6,000,000 

c. +4,000,000 

 

6. Petroleum Inc. owns a lease to extract crude oil from sea. It is considering the construction of a deep-sea oil rig at a cost of $50 million (I0) and is expected to remain constant. The price of oil is $50 /bbl and the extraction costs are $20 /bbl. The quantity of oil Q = 200,000 bbl per year forever. The risk-free rate is 10% per year which is also the cost of capital (Ignore taxes). Suppose the oil price is uncertain and can be $70 /bbl or $40 /bbl next year and then expected NPV of the project if postponed by one year is:  

a. +10,000,000 

b. +25,000,000 

c. +5,000,000 

d. None of the above

8. You are planning to produce a new action figure called “Hillary “. However, you are very uncertain about the demand for the product. If it is a hit, you will have net cash flows of $50 million per year for 3 years (starting next year). If it fails, you will only have net cash flows of $10 million per year for 2 years (starting next year). There is an equal chance that it will be a hit or failure (probability = 50%) You will not know whether it is a hit or a failure until the first year’s cash flows are in. You have to spend $80 million immediately for equipment and the rights to produce the figure. If the discount rate is 10%, calculate the NPV without the abandonment option.  

a. -9.15 

b. +13.99 

c. +9.15 

d. -14.4
