Question 1: If the pension plan invests $95 million today in 10-year US Treasury bonds (riskless investment with guaranteed return) at an interest rate of 3.5 percent a year, how much will it have by the end of year 10?

Question 2: If the pension plan needs to accumulate $14 million in 13 years, how much must it invest today in an asset that pays an annual interest rate of 4 percent?

Question 3: How many years will it take for $197 million to grow to be $554 million if it is invested in an account with a quoted annual interest rate of 5 percent with monthly compounding of interest?

Question 4: The pension plan also invests in physical assets. It is considering the purchase of an office building today with the expectation that the price will rise to $20 million at the end of 10 years. Given the risk of this investment, there should be a yield of 10 percent annually on this investment. The asking price for the lot is $12 million. What is the annual yield (internal rate of return) of the investment if the purchase price is $12 million today and the sale price 10 years later is $20 million?

Question 5a: The pension plan is also considering investing $70 million of its cash today at a 3.5 percent annual interest for five years with a commercial bank. How much will the $70 million grow to at the end of 5 years?

Question 5b: Now take the amount of your answer in Ques 5a, and assume this money is invested in an annuity due with the first payment made at the beginning of the 6th year. The annuity due makes a total of 15 yearly (equal) payments. How much will the annual payments be from years 6 to 20, if the rate at which these payments are discounted is also 3.5 percent?

Question 6: The pension plan is about to take out a 10-year fixed-rate loan for the purchase of an information management system for its operations. The terms of the loan specify an initial principal balance (the amount borrowed) of $4 million and an APR of 3.75 percent. Payments will be made monthly. What will be the monthly payment? How much of the first payment will be interest, and How much will be principal? Use the Excel PMT function to provide the answers to these questions.

Question 7: If the payback period is two years, which application should be selected?

Question 8: If the required rate of return is 15 percent, which application should be selected?

Question 9: If the selection criterion is IRR, which application should be selected?

Question 10: Calculate the expected cash flows from the Android01 project based on the information provided.

Question 11: Calculate the NPV for a required rate of return of 6.5 percent. Also calculate the IRR and the Payback Period.

Question 12: Calculate the cost of debt, equity, and the WACC.

Question 13: Which particular capital structure should be chosen for the spin-off?
