Superior Manufacturing is thinking of launching a new product. The company expects to sell \$950,000 of the new product in the first year and \$1,500,000 each year thereafter. Direct costs including labor and materials will be 55% of sales. Indirect incremental costs are estimated at \$80,000 a year. The project requires a new plant that will cost a total of \$1,000,000, which will be depreciated straight line over the next five years. The new line will also require an additional net investment in inventory and receivables in the amount of \$200,000.
