Ed E is considering including two pieces of equipment, a truck & an overhead pulley system,
in this year’s capital budget. The projects are mutually exclusive. The cash outlay (cost) for the
truck is
$13,000
, & that for the pulley system is
$22,430
. After-tax cash flows, including
depreciation, are as follows:
Year
Truck
Pulley
1
$5,100
$7,500
2
$5,100
$7,500
3
$5,100
$7,500
4
$5,100
$7,500
5
$5,100
$7,500
What is the crossover rate, and what is its significance? Explain carefully. (Hint: Think NPV rule
versus IRR rule when choosing between the two projects.)
