Construction Phase Costs - remember to count incremental cash flows: Machine: -$175,000 Shipping & Installation: - 35,000 Net working capital - 8,000 + scrap value of old machine + 18,000 -$200,000 PV of Depreciation Tax Shield: Since we are given a depreciation rate and no other information we assume depreciation is on a declining balance basis. n j 3 PV(T x CCA) = dxT C x (1+k/2) - S j=1 k+d ± (1 + k) (1+k) ² n = . 25( . 35) $200,000 x 1 . 065 - $9,000 . 13+ . 25 ± 1 . 13 1 . 13 ² 12 = . 0875 [ $188,495

Old machine cost $68,000 to run, the new one only costs $35,000. That’s a savings of $33,000 per year before tax- a positive cash flow consideration. PV of $33,000(1-.35) per year for 12 years at 13% = $21,400 x 5 . 9176 = +$126,932.5 Ending Phase Cash Flows: PV of scrap value plus release of NWC Scrap value plus NWC = $9,000 + $8,000 = $17,000 PV of End Phase CF = $17,000 x 1 / 1 . 13 = +$3922 12 TOTAL PV of Project = -$200,000 + $42,876.42 +$126,932.5 + $3,922 = -$26,269 NPV is negative so the company should reject the project. 168...
