Write question herA firm must decide whether to construct a small, medium, or large stamping plant. A consultant’s report indicates a .20 probability that demand will be low and an .80 probability that demand will be high.


If the firm builds a small facility and demand turns out to be low, the net present value will be $41 million. If demand turns out to be high, the firm can either subcontract and realize the net present value of $41 million or expand greatly for a net present value of $46 million.


The firm could build a medium-size facility as a hedge: If demand turns out to be low, its net present value is estimated at $17 million; if demand turns out to be high, the firm could do nothing and realize a net present value of $46 million, or it could expand and realize a net present value of $58 million.


If the firm builds a large facility and demand is low, the net present value will be -$16 million, whereas high demand will result in a net present value of $76 million.
