Question 1- DCF Analysis (20 Marks) Rigger Mortis Corp. is in the business of making whiteboard markers. They are evaluating the potential of investing in some new equipment that will improve their manufacturing process. The initial cost of the new machinery is \$470,000 plus a one- time installation cost of \$5,000. All ongoing fixed costs related to production is \$93,500 per year and variable cost of production is \$0.18 per marker produced. Sales estimates for markers are 250,000 units per year over the next 5 years which is also the peak life expectancy of the new machinery. You have signed an agreement with a 3rd party to sell the machinery at 7.5% of the initial cost (excluding installation) at the end of the 5 years. The company’s required return on this project is 12% per year, their corporate tax rate is 38% and the machinery falls into a 25% CCA class. Based on the above information what should be the MINIMUM selling price per marker?
