Talhah Manufacturing is considering the purchase of a new production machine for SAR 529,000. The purchase of this
machine will result in an increase in earnings before interest and taxes of SAR 91,000 per year. To operate this machine
properly, workers would have to go through a brief training session that would cost SAR 17,000 after taxes. It would cost SAR
22,500 to install the machine properly. Also, because the machine is extremely efficient, its purchase would necessitate an
increase in inventory or SAR 23,000. This machine has an expected life of 10 years, after which it will have no salvage value.
Assume simplified straight-line depreciation and that this machine is being depreciated down to zero, a 35 percent marginal tax
rate, and a required rate of return of 15 percent.

Trans Global Corporation is considering the purchase of a new machine for SAR 422,000. The purchase of this machine will
result in an increase in earnings before interest and taxes of SAR 97,000 per year. To operate this machine properly, workers
would have to go through a brief training session that would cost SAR 12,200 after taxes. It would cost SAR 6,500 to install
the machine properly. Also, because the machine is extremely efficient, its purchase would necessitate an increase in inventory
or SAR 28,500. This machine has an expected life of 10 years, after which it will have no salvage value. Assume simplified
straight-line depreciation and that this machine is being depreciated down to zero, a 32 percent marginal tax rate, and a
required rate of return of 10 percent.

RISK-ADJUSTED NPV
Qusaiba Corporation is considering two mutually exclusive projects. Both require an initial outlay of SAR 22,500 and will
operate for 5 years. Project A will produce expected cash flows of SAR 6,800 per year for years 1 through 5, whereas project B
will produce expected cash flows of SAR 7,400 per year for years 1 thorough 5. Because project B is the riskier of the two
projects, management of Qusaiba Corporation decided to apply a required rate of return of 20 percent to its evaluation but only
a 7 percent required rate of return to project A. Determine each project's risk-adjusted net present value.
