The managers of Merton Medical Clinic are analyzing a proposed project. The project’s most likely NPV is $120,000, but, as evidenced by the following NPV distribution, there is considerable risk involved: Probability NPV 0.05 -$700,000 0.2 -$250,000 0.5 $120,000 0.2 $200,000 0.05 $300,000 a. What are the project’s expected NPV and standard deviation of NPV? b. Should the base case analysis use the most likely NPV or expected NPV? Explain your answer.
