PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE INSTRUCTION THOROUGHLY
The board of directors of your for-profit hospital has been approached by a nonprofit hospital to consider a joint venture to take over their business resulting in a larger for-profit medical center status. You have been asked to construct a financial risk analysis for this conversion. Using course materials, including your text and the Internet, and principles of financial risk analysis, evaluate the considerations that a nonprofit hospital has in considering the conversion to a for-profit hospital.
Consider the following options in support of your decision:
Projected profit and loss statements
Retention of estimates
Selected cost of capital
Other spreadsheets and calculations you feel are needed to support your decision
Consider the following topics in your discussion:
Key characteristics of nonprofit hospitals that differ from for-profit hospitals
Include the characteristics required to maintain a nonprofit status.
The need for shifts in corporate structure required for survival in this environment, including safety net requirements and responsibilities
Potential reasons driving both organizations and considerations between an outright merger versus a corporate alliance or joint venture.
Assessment of the payer mix, financial benchmarks of nonprofit and for-profit hospitals
Consider uncompensated care burdens within the for-profit model
Proffer a decision based on your analysis of whether the organization should convert, create a joint venture, or decline the offer with rationale and justification.
*****Your paper must include your financial information derived in your risk analysis as an appendix included after the Reference page*******

ANSWER QUESTIONS BELOW USING NARRATIVE
Some Rough Cost-Benefit Numbers for a “Bridge to Nowhere”
A widely publicized federal earmark in the 2006 transportation appropriation bill was $223 million for a
bridge intended to provide access to Ketchikan, Alaska’s airport on lightly populated Gravina Island. The
project had the misfortune to become labeled the “Bridge to Nowhere” when the earmark came to light
in the 2008 presidential campaign. It is possible to do some rough cost-benefit analysis on the project.
Gravina Island has a population of around 50, so most of the bridge traffic would likely be those using
the airport. The island was not inaccessible without the bridge. A ferry serves the island, with ferries
leaving every half hour. The primary impact from the bridge would be to reduce travel time on the trips.
It has been estimated that the drive to the airport from Ketchikan would take 13 minutes, compared to
27 minutes by ferry. Therefore, the time saving is around 15 minutes per passenger. Ketchikan is a port
for cruise ships, which dock on the mainland, so some of the bridge traffic would be ship passengers
either joining or leaving the cruise ships. Airline enplanements/deplanements (total passengers coming
and going through the airport) are on the order of 400,000, so that traffic would create 800,000
crossings of the bridge. But let’s be generous and round up to 1,000,000 crossings, each saving around
one quarter hour by taking the bridge.
How much is the time saving worth? Let’s assume that each visitor earns $125,000 in income per year. If
the visitor works 50 weeks per year and 40 hours per week, then the work year is 2,000 work hours.
Some visitors are children and some are retired—and the earning level assumed here is much higher
than the national average—but let’s not worry about that. Work it out with different estimates on your
own, if you wish. With these numbers, the value of work time equals $62.50 per hour. But this is leisure
time for most of the traffic, not work time, so let’s adjust the value downward by 50 percent (probably
an underadjustment) to get an estimate of the value of leisure time—$31.25. Each passenger saves 15
minutes with the bridge (compared with travel by ferry), so the saving per passenger equals $7.81.
Multiply that by 1 million passengers to get $7,810,000.
We will assume that the bridge will last forever and will have no maintenance cost and that 3 percent is
a reasonable discount rate (that’s lower than the OMB rate of 7 percent, but probably higher than
current market interest rates). Divide $7,810,000 by 0.03 (because benefits are perpetual—the value is
lower if we use a finite life for the bridge) to get the present value of the services from the bridge of
$260.4 million, a large number and, as it turns out, larger than the amount of the appropriation. (If you
are uncomfortable with perpetual life, use 100 years and the annuity formula to get a present value of
services: (7.81/0.03)[1 − (1/1.03)100] 5 $246.8 million.)
But that is not the end of the story. In order to make the bridge functional, the state of Alaska has to
spend $165 million in addition to the federal government’s $233 million. Summing up, the present value
of the benefits of the bridge is at most $260.4 million, but its total cost is $398 million.
Consider These Questions
1. Would you consider the bridge to be a worthwhile use of federal resources? Why or why not?
2. Why might the state of Alaska be interested in getting the bridge built, even though the total cost of
the bridge exceeds the present value of the benefits from the bridge? From the standpoint of Alaska,
what are the relevant costs and benefits?
3. How do the benefit-cost analysis results change if the discount rate is 7 percent? What about 2
percent?
4. The analysis is made with several assumptions about use of the bridge, value of traveler time, and
number of visitors. How would the analysis change with alternate assumptions that you believe to be
potentially reasonable?

Problem #3: 25 possible points
Your firm, Country Furniture, Inc., is thinking about replacing equipment in its production facilities. In considering the replacement, you obtained the following information:
The expansion will require the company to purchase today (t = 0) $5 million of new equipment. An additional $200,000 in installation charges will be required. The equipment will be depreciated as MACRS 3-year property over the following four years at the following rates:
t = 1 33%
t = 2 45%
t = 3 15%
t = 4 7%
The expansion will require the company to increase its net operating working capital by $150,000 today (t = 0). This net operating working capital will be recovered at the end of the project’s 5-year economic life.
The old equipment is fully depreciated (Book Value = $0) and can be sold for $85,000
.
The new equipment is expected to have a salvage value of $30,000 at the end of its 5-year economic life.
The company’s operating costs, excluding depreciation, are expected to reflect a decrease of $75,000 per year for each year the new equipment is in operation.
The new equipment will increase the company’s sales. The projected increases are as follows:
Year 1: $3.0 million
Year 2: 3.5 million
Year 3: 2.5 million
Year 4: 1.5 million
Year 5: 1.0 million
The required return for the project is 10%. The company’s tax rate is 40%.
a. Forecast the NINV, NCFs and Terminal Value.
b. What are the proposed project’s Net Present Value (NPV) and Internal Rate of Return?
c. If there are no other project proposals in the company and you have the money
available to fund this project, will you fund the project proposal or not? Why?

Purpose: This assessment is intended to support student
development of oral presentation skills.
The scenario: You are one of several managers of a financial intermediary being present at a capital raising event. Each manager is to present a different aspect of the capital raising to an audience of wholesale clients with an interest in impact investing. The financial intermediary is the host and has
been selected by a government body (in any country) to help raise private capital through an issue of social impact bonds (SIB). The government body plans to combine the money raised with its budget to fund the maintenance and expansion of a successful intervention program that aims to improve the wellbeing of people adversely affected by a social problem.
To draw the audience interest to the investment opportunity and get their support for the independent social service provider responsible for the delivery of the intervention program, the financial intermediary understands that, first and foremost, the audience wants to know why they should participate in the capital raising. This explains the role below for you to convince the audience that the capital raised will be spent on a worthy cause that is intended to combat a pressing social problem and
break the vicious cycle.
Your role: To deliver a presentation to raise awareness of a pressing social problem in no more than
two minutes.
The social problem: The lecturer will assign each student a social problem to prepare for the presentation. The allocation will be posted on the course Moodle page in Week 1 in the ‘Oral Presentation’ section.
For each social problem, I have curated one or two clusters of web pages for you to explore. You may use either or both clusters in whatever way you like to derive idea and develop content for the presentation. When you explore a web page, be mindful that there are usually embedded links to go further.
If you find the webpages inadequate, feel free to broaden the search for more information. If none of the web pages interest you, you are welcome to explore elsewhere to derive idea and develop content
