The Doraville Machinery Company is planning to expand its current spindle product line. The required machinery would cost \$520,000. it is estimated that at the end of year 10 that the machinery can be sold for \$50,000. The machinery will be classified as a seven-year MACRS. The building that will house the new production facility would cost \$1.5 million. At the end of year 10, it is estimated that the building for \$800,000. The building will be depreciated according to a 39-year property class. The land would cost \$350,000. At the end of year 10, it is estimated that the land can be sold for \$500,000. Working capital of \$250,000 for each year of the project would be required by the start of year 1 and all of the working capital will be recovered at the end of the project.

- The product is expected to result in additional sales of \$775,000 per year for 10 years
- The annual disbursements for labor, materials, and all other expenses are estimated to be \$465,000 for each year.
- The firm's income tax rate is 40%, and any capital gains will be taxed at 35%.
- The firm's MARR is known to be 15% after taxes.

## Calculate Project Cash Flows, NPV and IRR

Revenues generated by a new fad product in each of the next 5 years are forecasted as follows:

Year Revenue
1 \$40,000
2 30,000
3 20,000
4 10,000
Thereafter 0

Expenses are expected to be 40% of revenues, and working capital required in each year is expected to be 20% of revenues in the following year. The product requires an immediate investment of \$50,000 in plant and equipment.

A. What is the initial investment in the product? Remember working capital.

B. If the plant and equipment are depreciated over 4 years to a salvage value of zero using straight-line depreciation, and the firm's tax rate is 40%, what are the project cash flows in each year?

C. If the opportunity cost of capital is 10%, what is the projected NPV

D What is the project IRR
