Blue Dart, an India based company, is considering expanding its operations into a foreign country. The required investment at Time = 0 is Rs. 10 million. The firm forecasts total cash inflows of Rs. 4 million per year for 2 years, Rs. 6 million for the next two years, and then a possible terminal value of Rs. 8 million. In addition, due to political risk factors, Blue Dart believes that there is a 50 percent chance that the gross terminal value will be only Rs. 2 million and that there is a 50 percent chance that it will be Rs. 8 million. However, the government of the host country will block 20 percent of all cash flows. Thus, cash flows that can be repatriated are 80 percent of those projected. Blue Darts’ cost of capital is 15 percent, but it adds one percentage point to all foreign projects to account for exchange rate risk. Under these conditions, what is the project’s NPV?


Hindustan Construction Corporation arranged a two-year, $1,000,000 loan to fund a foreign project. The loan is denominated in Mexican pesos, carries a 10 percent nominal rate, and requires equal semiannual payments. The exchange rate at the time of the loan was 5.75 pesos per dollar but immediately dropped to 5.10 (pesos per dollars) before the first payment came due. The loan carried no exchange rate protection and was not hedged by Hindustan Construction Corporation in the foreign exchange market. Thus, Hindustan Construction Corporation must convert U.S. funds to Mexican pesos to make its payments. If the exchange rate remains at 5.10 pesos per dollar through the end of the loan period, what effective interest rate will Hindustan Construction Corporation end up paying on the foreign loan?
