Karman has the following investment opportunities:
Annual Net Project
Project Cost Cash Flow Life
Defense 1,000,000 $219,120 7 years
Communication and Space 1,000,000 319,775 5
Eng. Materials 1,000,000 222,851 8
Defense 2,000,000 368,580 10
Eng. Materials 2,000,000 542,784 6
Comm. and Space 1,000,000 202168 9
Part I
Determine the book value and market value of the capital structure.
Determine the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) for each of the capital structure.
Calculate the internal rate of return (IRR) of each project and compare them against the book value and market value weighted average cost of capital.
Which projects should Karman accept?
What is the total investment budget?
Part II
Although the average project in the Defense Segment was substantially riskier than communications and Space Products segment and Engineered Materials segment, the project evaluation process did not formally incorporate risk considerations. This lack of risk consideration was more evident in the Communications and Space Products segment and Engineered Materials segments, since their productions, earnings, and profits were highly correlated and fluctuated with the economy. As a result, these segments provided a very stable income to the company. On the other hand, the Defense segment provides military products and professional services to the United States and allied governments, and their prime defense contractors and as a result, the earnings and profits of the Defense segment tended to be tied to the world geo-political environment.
Karman has gathered the following beta for each segments based on comparable companies:
Project Defense Com. Space Eng. Materials
Beta 1.50 1.20 0.80

The risk-free rate is 5% and rate of the market risk premium 9.0%.
Calculate the required rate of return for each project?
Compare the required rate of return with expected rate of return, according to the risk characteristics of each projects; which project is appropriate to take?
