Mini Case a-c Page 580
a. Set up, without numbers, a time line for the project's cash flows.
b. 1) Construct incremental operating cash flow statements for the project's 4 years of operations.
2) Does your cash flow statement include any financial flows such as interest expense or dividends? Why or why not?
c. 1) Suppose the firm had spent $ 100,000 last year to rehabilitate the production line site. Should this cost be included in the analysis? Explain.
2) Now assume that the plant space could be leased out to another firm at $25,000 a year. Should this be included in the analysis? If so, how?
3) Finally, assume that the new product line is expected to decrease sales of the firm's other lines by $50,000 per year. Should this be considered in the analysis? If so, how?
