Case UVa Health System: The Long-Term Acute Care Hospital Project
Wk 3 is the first of two consecutive weeks on CAPITAL BUDGETING.
You will learn the three steps in capital budgeting:
Identify relevant incremental cash flows
Calculate cost of capital (k-wacc) to use as the discount rate
Calculate the metrics of capital budgeting: Net Present Value, Profitability Index,
Internal Rate of Return, and Payback Period.
Then, you will apply the metrics and information in the case study to make a recommendation
whether to accept or reject the LTAC project.
The essence of the capital budgeting process is to make sure, BEFORE an investment is made,
that its prospective rate of return is high enough to justify the investment.
Reading Cohen Finance Workbook chapter 4 is a review of Time Value of Money, which you covered in a previous course.
Review it as necessary, but defer the review until you look at the TVM applications in chapter 5 beginning on p 79.
You need to know TVM to understand the capital budgeting metrics of NPV, PI, and

Wk 3 gives you practice on the basics. You won’t have a full understanding of what the LTAC Project case is about at
the end of Wk3. In Wk4, you will return to the case, analyze the project, and make a recommendation.

Use the template to answer Q1.
Q1:
Page 75 in Cohen Finance Workbook displays a K-wacc calculation for a company.
Suppose that the inputs to that k-wacc calculation have changed.
The company’s financial risk has increased, so its coupon rate is now 9%.
Its marginal tax rate increased to 30%.
To reduce financial risk, its ‘target’ weight of debt is reduced to 30%.
The risk-free rate on treasury bonds is now 2%.
The risk premium stays the same at 8%.
The beta, reflecting higher financial risk, rises to

1.5
Recalculate k-wacc, using the template at the top of this page.
Explain the significance of the change in k-wacc to the capital budgeting analysis and recommendation. Use the box below:

Go to the bottom of p 68 in the Cohen Finance Workbook.
There is no picture of a faucet – but – visualize a sink faucet turning on and off, controlling the flow of water.
Picture a receivables faucet, an inventory faucet, and a payables faucet.
The number of days can be lower (faucet turned low) or higher (faucet turned high).
This is how net working capital is controlled, by setting the number of days of each.
The investment in working capital is one of the entries in a forecast.
This question helps you learn how to forecast net working capital.
Q2a – Explain how the table below works, i.e., what are the inputs, what are the outputs, and how
are the inputs transformed into the outputs.

Wk 4 is the second of two weeks on CAPITAL BUDGETING
Study the Wk 3 Solutions Template before proceeding into Wk 4.
Learning Objectives (repeated from Wk3 Assignment Template)
You will learn the three steps in capital budgeting: SEE THE FLOW DIAGRAM – YOU ARE NOW WORKING ON THE GREEN-COLORED ANALYSIS.
Identify relevant incremental cash flows
Calculate cost of capital (k-wacc) to use as the discount rate
Calculate the metrics of capital budgeting: Net Present Value, Profitability Index,
Internal Rate of Return, and Payback Period.
Then, you will apply the metrics and information in the case study to make a recommendation
about which of the two projects to accept.
The essence of the capital budgeting process is to make sure, before an investment is made,
that its prospective rate of return is high enough to justify the investment,
i.e., that the project is CREATES value, not DESTROYS value.
Directions (some repeating from Wk3 Assignment Template)
Make a quick scan through the LTAC case and the exhibits.
Listen to the Intro Audio
Cohen Finance Workbook chapter 4 is a review of Time Value of Money, which you covered in a previous course.

Study the above analysis carefully, examining the inputs, outputs, and formulas used to do the calculations.
Q1a Mulroney did not use working capital cash flows in her original analysis. The analysis above
includes incremental investment in working capital. Discuss why she was either correct or incorrect not to
include them.
Q1b Compare the decision metrics NPV & IRR for the “no recovery of NWC” and “recovery of NWC” scenarios,
stating which scenario best captures reality. Based on your answer, give the project a green or red light.
Q1c Examine the decision metric ‘profit margin’, and explain if it leads to a green or red light for this project.
Even though the board of directors uses this metric, it is defective. Explain why. HINT: FCF definition.
Q1d Reconcile your answers to Q1b and Q1c.

Q2a Calculate the K-wacc for HCA using the template above. Enter the data that you
have in the case and the table above. If you need additional data, assume it using
your good judgment from what you have learned so far in the course.
In the answer box, cite your result, compare it to the K-wacc used in the Q1
analysis, and explain how your revised K-wacc would change the Q1 results.
Q2b If LATC was a project in a for-profit hospital like HCA
above, would the NPV be higher or lower? Explain ‘analytically’ by examining
all relevant inputs to NPV.
Q2c
above, would the IRR be higher or lower? Explain.
HINT: To avoid getting trapped by this question, make sure your answer is
‘analytical’, i.e., examine all relevant inputs and output.
Q2d Can a non-profit hospital accept projects that a for-profit hospital would reject?

Q3a The analysis above is identical to the one on the Q1 tab.
Do a sensitivity analysis by systematically changing certain assumptions in the spreadsheet above:
change the K-wacc to 8.3%
change year 2 utilization to 45%
change commercial payers to 30% of patient mix
Use the answer box to prepare a summary of the original (Q1) results
and the revised (Q3) results, i.e., a summary table.
Q3b Revise the decision you made in Q1 based on the above sensitivity analysis, comparing Mulroney’s
assumptions and the sensitivity analysis assumptions to expectations stated in the case.
Be sure to consider both ‘hard quantitative data” from decision metrics and ‘soft qualitative information’
from the case.
