Finance question

  • You are the personal assistant of the managing director of a company. The board of directors has agreed that all investment projects should be evaluated using net present value (NPV) as the accept/reject criterion. As a further requirement it has been agreed that NPV should be computed using the company’s weighted average cost of capital, which the company’s finance director has determined as 25 percent.

Is the divisional manager’s preference for using the debt financing rate such a reason
