Direct costs including labor and materials will be 55% of sales. Indirect incremental costs are estimated at \$80,000 a year. The project will require a new plant that will cost a total of \$1000,000 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 100,000.
