3) After the examine the three approaches, Amanda would like Han to analyze the financial viability of the new plant and calculate the profitability index, NPV, and IRR. Choice 2: Capital Budgeting Decision Since LSUS corporation is producing at full capacity, Amanda has decided to have Han examine the feasibility of a new manufacturing plant. This expansion would represent a major capital outlay for the company. A preliminary analysis of the project has been conducted at a cost of \$1.6 million. This analysis determined that the new plant will require an immediate outlay of \$54 million and an additional outlay of \$31 million in one year. The company has received a special tax dispensation that will allow the building and equipment to be depreciated on a 20- year MACRS schedule.

Two years from now, the company will have partial-year sales of \$17 million. Sales in the following four years will be \$28 million, \$37 million, \$40 million, and \$43 million. Because the new plant will be more efficient than LSUS corporation's current manufacturing facilities, variable costs are expected to be 65 percent of sales, and fixed costs will be \$2.4 million per year. The new plant will also require net working capital amounting to 8 percent of sales for the next year. Han realizes that sales from the new plant will continue into the indefinite future.
