MGT 326 HW 4 Solution 4. A firm is considering two mutually exclusive projects that have the annual cash flows shown below. Project A is a moderately risky project while Project B is considered to have a high degree of risk. The firm’s WACC is 7.34%. The firm uses the risk-adjusted discount rate method to account for project risk. Projects posing minimal risk are evaluated using WACC for the discount rate. Using the WACC as a base, 1.25% is added for moderately risky projects and 2.50% is added for significantly risky projects. The NPV of Project A is: -$13.86 The NPV of Project B is: -$32.18 Which project should be adopted?
