Project Absinth requires a $20,000 cash outlay today and is expected to generate after-tax cash flows of $11,000 in year 1, $8,500 in year 2, and $7,500 in year 3. Project Brandy requires a $30,000 cash outlay today and is expected to generate after-tax cash flows of $7,000 in year 1, $9,000 in year 2, $11,000 in year 3, and $16,000 in year 4. Neither project can be repeated at the end of its life. The appropriate discount rate for both projects is 10 percent.
