Assume a WACC of 10%.

Should the coffee packaging project be accepted? Why or why not? Compute the project’s IRR and NPV.

In addition, answer the following questions:

  • Do you believe that there was sufficient financial information to make a solid decision on what to do?
  • Was there further financial information that you required that was not provided to you?
  • What financial figure do you believe was the determinant to your decision and why?
  • How would you be able to apply this particular financial information to other situations?
