How do international factors affect decision making? although the



FOREIGN CAPITAL BUDGETING Sandrine Machinery is a Swiss multinational manufacturing company. Currently, Sandrine’s financial planners are considering undertaking a 1-year project in the United States. The project’s expected dollar-denominated cash flows consist of an initial investment of $2,000 and a cash inflow the following year of $2,400. Sandrine estimates that its risk-adjusted cost of capital is 10%. Currently, 1 U.S. dollar will buy 0.96 Swiss franc. In addition, 1-year risk-free securities in the United States are yielding 3%, while similar securities in Switzerland are yielding 1.50%.
a. If this project was instead undertaken by a similar U.S.-based company with the same risk-adjusted cost of capital, what would be the net present value and rate of return generated by this project?
b. What is the expected forward exchange rate 1 year from now?
c. If Sandrine undertakes the project, what is the net present value and rate of return of the project for Sandrine?
