4/11/2010 Chapter 11 Mini Case Situation Analysis of New Expansion Project Part I: Input Data Equipment cost $200,000 Key Output: NPV = $88,026 Shipping charge $10,000 Installation charge $30,000 Economic Life 4 Salvage Value $25,000 Tax Rate 40% Cost of Capital 10% Units Sold 1,250 Sales Price Per Unit $200 Incremental Cost Per Unit $100 NWC/Sales 12% Inflation rate 3% Shrieves Casting Company is considering adding a new line to its product mix, and the capital budgeting analysis is being conducted by Sidney Johnson, a recently graduated MBA. The production line would be set up in unused space in Shrieves' main plant. The machinery’s invoice price would be approximately $200,000, another $10,000 in shipping charges would be required, and it would cost an additional $30,000 to install the equipment. The machinery has an economic life of 4 years, and Shrieves has obtained a special tax ruling that places the equipment in the MACRS 3-year class. The machinery is expected to have a salvage value of $25,000 after 4 years of use. The new line would generate incremental sales of 1,250 units per year for 4 years at an incremental cost of $100 per unit in the first year, excluding depreciation. Each unit can be sold for $200 in the first year. The sales price and cost are expected to increase by 3% per year due to inflation. Further, to handle the new line, the firm’s net working capital would have to increase by an amount equal to 12% of sales revenues. The firm’s tax rate is 40%, and its overall weighted average cost of capital is 10%. a. Define “incremental cash flow.” Answer: See Chapter 11 Mini Case Show (1.) Should you subtract interest expense or dividends when calculating project cash flow? Answer: See Chapter 11 Mini Case Show (2.) Suppose the firm had spent $100,000 last year to rehabilitate the production line site. Should this be included in the analysis? Explain. Answer: See Chapter 11 Mini Case Show (3.) Now assume that the plant space could be leased out to another firm at $25,000 per year. Should this be included in the analysis? If so, how? Answer: See Chapter 11 Mini Case Show (4.) Finally, assume that the new product line is expected to decrease sales of the firm’s other lines by $50,000 per year. Should this be considered in the analysis? If so, how? Answer: See Chapter 11 Mini Case Show
