Multiple-choice Questions 1. Consider the following proposal to enter a new line of business: The new business will require the company to purchase additional fixed assets that will cost $600,000 at t = 0. For tax and accounting purposes, these costs will be depreciated on a straight- line basis over three years. (Annual depreciation will be $200,000 per year at t = 1, 2, and 3.). At the end of three years, the company will get out of the business and will sell the fixed assets at a salvage value of $100,000. The project will require a $50,000 increase in net operating working capital at t = 0, which will be recovered at t = 3. The company's marginal tax rate is 35 percent. The new business is expected to generate $2 million in sales each year (at t = 1, 2, and3). The operating costs excluding depreciation are expected to be $1.4 million per year.
