CHAPTER 10 B-185 16. To calculate the EAC of the project, we first need the NPV of the project. Notice that we include the NWC expenditure at the beginning of the project, and recover the NWC at the end of the project. The NPV of the project is: NPV = –$270,000 – 25,000 – $42,000(PVIFA 11%,5 ) + $25,000/1.11 5 = –$435,391.39 Now we can find the EAC of the project. The EAC is: EAC = –$435,391.39 / (PVIFA 11%,5 ) = –$117,803.98 17. We will need the aftertax salvage value of the equipment to compute the EAC. Even though the equipment for each product has a different initial cost, both have the same salvage value. The aftertax salvage value for both is: Both cases: aftertax salvage value = $40,000(1 – 0.35) = $26,000 To calculate the EAC, we first need the OCF and NPV of each option. The OCF and NPV for Techron I is: OCF = –$67,000(1 – 0.35) + 0.35($290,000/3) = –9,716.67 NPV = –$290,000 – $9,716.67(PVIFA 10%,3 ) + ($26,000/1.10 3 ) = –$294,629.73 EAC = –$294,629.73 / (PVIFA 10%,3 ) = –$118,474.97 And the OCF and NPV for Techron II is: OCF = –$35,000(1 – 0.35) + 0.35($510,000/5) = $12,950 NPV = –$510,000 + $12,950(PVIFA 10%,5 ) + ($26,000/1.10 5 ) = –$444,765.36 EAC = –$444,765.36 / (PVIFA 10%,5 ) = –$117,327.98 The two milling machines have unequal lives, so they can only be compared by expressing both on an equivalent annual basis, which is what the EAC method does. Thus, you prefer the Techron II because it has the lower (less negative) annual cost. 18. To find the bid price, we need to calculate all other cash flows for the project, and then solve for the bid price. The aftertax salvage value of the equipment is: Aftertax salvage value = $70,000(1 – 0.35) = $45,500 Now we can solve for the necessary OCF that will give the project a zero NPV. The equation for the
