J. Smythe manufactures fie furniture. The company is deciding to introduce a new mahogany dining room set. The set will sell for $5,600. The company feels that sales will be 1,300; 1,325; 1,375; 1,450 and 1,320 per year for the next 5 years. Variable costs amount for 45% of sales and fixed costs are 1.7 million per year. The new table will require inventory amounting to 10% of sales, in the year previous to sales.

It is believed that the addition of the new set will cause a loss of 200 tables per year on the oak tables. These tables sell for $4,500 and have variable costs of 40%. Needed inventory is also 10% of sales. The company currently has excess production capacity. If the company buys new equipment, it will cost $10.5 million. However, the excess capacity means the company can produce the new tables with the old equipment for the next two years.

This means that, if the company uses the old equipment, it will be forced to buy the new equipment, at a cost of $10.5 million in two years. In five years, the new equipment will be sold at a market value of %2.8 million if bought today or $6.1 million if bought two years from now. The equipment is depreciated on a 7 year MACRS schedule.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
