To find the OCF, we need to complete the income statement as follows:

The OCF for the company is:
OCF = EBIT + Depreciation – Taxes
OCF = $202,200 + 96,300 – 70,770
OCF = $227,730
The depreciation tax shield is the depreciation times the tax rate, so:
Depreciation tax shield = Depreciation(T)
Depreciation tax shield = 0.35($96,300)
Depreciation tax shield = $33,705
The depreciation tax shield shows us the increase in OCF by being able to expense depreciation.

Cochrane, Inc., is considering a new three-year expansion project that requires an initial fixed asset investment of
$2.46 million. The fixed asset will be depreciated straight-line to zero over its three-year tax life, after which time it
will be worthless. The project is estimated to generate $2,270,000 in annual sales, with costs of $1,260,000.
Required:
If the tax rate is 35 percent, what is the OCF for this project?
(Do not include the dollar sign ($). Enter your
answer in dollars, not millions of dollars (e.g., 1,234,567).)
OCF

Explanation:
Using the tax shield approach to calculating OCF (Remember the approach is irrelevant; the final answer will be the
same no matter which of the four methods you use.), we get:

OCF = (Sales – Costs)(1 – T) + Depreciation(T)
OCF = ($2,270,000 – 1,260,000)(1 – 0.35) + 0.35($2,460,000/3)
OCF = $943,500

Cochrane, Inc., is considering a new three-year expansion project that requires an initial fixed asset investment of
$2.37 million. The fixed asset will be depreciated straight-line to zero over its three-year tax life, after which time it
will be worthless. The project is estimated to generate $2,240,000 in annual sales, with costs of $1,230,000. Assume
the tax rate is 35 percent and the required return on the project is 10 percent.
Required:
What is the project’s NPV?
(Do not include the dollar sign ($). Negative amount should be indicated by a minus
sign. Enter your answer in dollars, not millions of dollars (e.g., 1,234,567). Round your answer to 2 decimal
places (e.g., 32.16).)

Explanation:
Using the tax shield approach to calculating OCF (Remember the approach is irrelevant; the final answer will be the
same no matter which of the four methods you use.), we get:
OCF = (Sales – Costs)(1 – T) + Depreciation(T)
OCF = ($2,240,000 – 1,230,000)(1 – 0.35) + 0.35($2,370,000/3)
OCF = $933,000
Since we have the OCF, we can find the NPV as the initial cash outlay, plus the PV of the OCFs, which are an
