Unformatted text preview: EXERCISE 14—1 Net Present Value Method The management of Kunkel Company is considering the purchase of a \$40,000 machine that would reduce operating costs by \$7,000 per year. At the end of the machine's eight—year useful life, it will have zero scrap value. The company's required rpate of return is 12%.

The new machine would permit the company to reduce the amount of part—time help needed, at a cost savings of \$3,800 per year. In addition, the new machine would allow the company to produce one new style of donut, resulting in the sale of 1,000 dozen more donuts each year. The company realizes a contribution margin of\$l.20 per dozen donuts sold. The new machine would have a six—year useful life. Required: (Ignore income taxes.) 1 . What would be the total annual cash inﬂows associated with the new machine for capital budgeting purposes? 2. Find the internal rate of return promised by the new machine to the nearest whole percent. 3. In addition to the data given previously, assume that the machine will have a \$9,125 salvage value at the end of six years. Under these conditions, compute the internal rate of return to the nearest whole percent. (Hint: You may ﬁnd it helpful to use the net present value approach; ﬁnd the discount rate that will cause the net present value to be closest to zero.) [A V9 v. 'i r I _ . . gr .9 «J v ...
