The company’s required rate of return is 8%.

Management has turned to its finance and accounting department to perform analyses and make a recommendation on which option to choose. They have requested that the four main capital budgeting calculations be done: NPV, IRR, Payback Period, and ARR for each option.

For this assignment, compute all required amounts and explain how the computations were performed. Evaluate the results for each option and explain what the results mean. Based on your analysis, recommend which option the company should pursue.

Superior papers will:

· Perform all calculations correctly.

· Articulate how the calculations were performed, including from where values used in the calculations were obtained.

· Evaluate the results computed and explain the meaning of the results, including why certain measurements are more accurate than others.

· Recommend which option to pursue, supported by well-thought-out rationale, and considering any other factors that could impact the recommendation.

Be sure to use APA formatting in your paper.  Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab (OWL) is a free website that provides excellent information and resources for understanding and using the APA format and style. The OWL website can be accessed here: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_style_introduction.html
