(50 marks) Will’s Machine Shop Corporation purchased a computer controlled drill press 6 years ago that had an estimated economic life of 10 years. The drill press originally cost $400,000, was placed in class 10 with a CCA rate of 30 percent, and has a current undepreciated capital cost of $57,144. The actual market value of this drill press is $50,000. The firm is considering replacing the drill press with a new one costing $180,000. Shipping and installation charges will add an additional $20,000 to the cost. The new machine will also be placed in class 10. The new machine is expected to have a 4-year economic life. You should assume that class 10 will remain open as the firm has many assets in class 10. The net salvage value of the new machine in four years is estimated to be $40,000. If kept, the old machine has an estimated net salvage value of $10,000 in four years. The firm’s current marginal tax rate is 25 percent. The firm’s project cost of capital for this replacement decision is 10 percent. The firm’s initial incremental net working capital would increase by $12,000 as a result of replacing the drill press. Annual revenues during the project’s first year would increase from $300,000 to $400,000 if the new drill press were purchased. After the first year, revenues from the new project are expected to increase at a rate of $12,000 per year for the remainder of the project life to reach $436,000 in Year 4. The required incremental net working capital will be $1,000 at the end of each year for years 1 through 3.
