The Baldwin Company An Example

We next consider the example of a proposed investment in machinery and related items. Our example involves the Baldwin Company and colored bowling balls. The Baldwin Company, originally established in 1965 to make footballs, is now a leading producer of tennis balls, baseballs, footballs, and golf balls. In 1973 the company introduced High Flite, its first line of high-performance golf balls. The Baldwin management has sought opportunities in whatever businesses seem to have some potential for cash flow. In 1999 W. C. Meadows, vice president of the Baldwin Company, identified another segment of the sports ball market that looked promising and that he felt was not adequately served by larger manufacturers. That market was for brightly colored bowling balls, and he believed a large number of bowlers valued appearance and style above performance. He also believed that it would be difficult for competitors to take advantage of the opportunity because of Baldwin's cost advantages and...

Example 1014 Implementing the IRR Rule for Investing

Refer to the Joe's Bowling Alley project in Example 10.9, where the stream of cash flows (in 000s) at dates 0, 1, 2, and 3 was C0 -9, C1 4, C2 5, and C3 3, respectively, with associated zero-coupon yields of 8 percent, 5 percent, and 6 percent at maturity dates 1, 2, and 3, respectively. How does the IRR compare with the hurdle rate for the project

Example 1015 Implementing the IRR Rule for Borrowing Needs

Consider the cancellation of the project in Example 10.14, immediately after Joe's Bowling Alley made the adoption decision. In other words, the decision was made not to relacquer the lanes following the earlier decision to relacquer them. What are the cash flows from canceling the project How does the IRR compare with the hurdle rate in this case Answer The relevant incremental cash flows for the cancellation decision (a project in its own right) are found by subtracting the cash flow position of the bowling alley when it adopted the lane relacquering project from its cash flow position without the project. These cash flows are simply the negatives of the cash flows in Example 10.3 9,000 at t 0, - 4,000 at t 1, - 5,000 at t 2, and - 3,000 at t 3. The net present value calculation is

An Analysis of the Project

The purchase requires a cash outflow of 100,000 at year 0. The firm realizes a cash inflow when the machine is sold in year 5. These cash flows are shown in line 1 of Table 7.1. As indicated in the footnote to the table, taxes are incurred when the asset is sold. 2. The Opportunity Cost of Not Selling the Warehouse. If Baldwin accepts the bowlingball project, it will use a warehouse and land that could otherwise be sold. The estimated sales price of the warehouse and land is therefore included as an opportunity cost, as (1) Bowling ball machine Net Present Value It is possible to calculate the NPV of the Baldwin bowling ball project from these cash flows. As can be seen at the bottom of Table 7.4, the NPV is 51,588 if 10 percent is the appropriate discount rate and 31,351 if 20 percent is the appropriate discount rate. If the discount rate is 15.67 percent, the project will have a zero NPV. In other words, the project's internal rate of return is 15.67...

Sporting Events

Sport tournaments, like golf, tennis, and bowling, are popular fundraising events to be held at various athletic clubs where the members are part of the agency's natural constituency, as seen in Exhibit 2.7. The club usually sets aside certain days that are traditionally slow for use by nonprofit agencies so that the club can keep its facilities fully staffed. Make sure that the club does not discriminate and adheres to the antidiscrimination laws. Plan an event that will draw prospects who are not members and want to take advantage of using the club, especially if it is an outstanding club, with facilities to match. These events are not labor intensive and can be run by the nonprofit's staff the food service can be run by the club's catering department. Depending on the arrangements made with the club, it is possible to show a reasonable net income. The agency can also hold a raffle of donated merchandise to raise a few more dollars. The main idea behind these events is to have fun...

Merchant Banking

The risk of merchant banking is that an investment bank will continue to throw good money after bad to a company owned by its merchant banking unit. An example is Goldman Sachs' purchase of AMF Bowling Inc. Goldman led a 1.37 billion leveraged buyout of the bowling company in 1996 along with buy- Goldman Sachs subsequently brought AMF Bowling public again in November 1997 in an IPO that raised about 263 million at a share price of 19.50. After the IPO, Goldman Sachs remained the majority shareholder with about 54 of the company. A year later, in December 1998, Goldman Sachs paid almost 48 million for 343 million face value of zero-coupon convertible debentures. At that time, AMF's share price had declined over 80 to the 4 to 5 range.14 From the time of its buyout, AMF went on a buying spree, increasing its bowling centers from about 300 to in 1996 to over 500 by 1998. Unfortunately, AMF expanded just at a time when customer demand for its bowling equipment, accessories, and bowling...

Interest Expense

It may have bothered you that interest expense was ignored in the Baldwin example. After all, many projects are at least partially financed with debt, particularly a bowling ball machine that is likely to increase the debt capacity of the firm. As it turns out, our approach of assuming no debt financing is rather standard in the real world. Firms typically calculate a project's cash flows under the assumption that the project is financed only with equity. Any adjustments for debt financing are reflected in the discount rate, not the cash flows. The treatment of debt in capital budgeting will be covered in depth later in the text. Suffice it to say at this time that the full ramifications of debt financing are well beyond our current discussion.
