Question 1: Capital Budgeting (20 Marks) Gyson Corp manufactures highly sought after consumer vacuum cleaners. Gyson Corp's CEO has asked you to prepare a capital budgeting study for a proposed project to introduce a high-end version of the company's existing popular Clear-Klean vacuum. This new high-end vacuum will be manufactured using the same assembly line as the existing Clear-Klean vacuum, but the company will need to purchase additional new equipment for the assembly line at a cost of $22 million. The equipment purchased qualifies for a 20% CCA rate, with annual depreciation calculated on a declining balance basis. The vacuum manufacturing industry is extremely competitive. As such, the expected life of the high-end Clear-Klean vacuum project is 6-years. The equipment purchased to facilitate this new project will be sold at the end of 6-years at an estimated salvage value equaling 20% of its original cost. The sales volume of the new vacuums are projected to be 100,000 units per year. The new vacuum will retail for $340/unit and the variable costs of production is $240/unit. The fixed cost of production associated with the previous generation of vacuum is $2,000,000 per year. Production of the new high- end Clear-Klean vacuum will add $850,000 to the company's annual fixed production costs. Ten percent of the company's existing annual $750,000 marketing budget will be used to advertise the introduction of the new product. The company's annual after-tax operating income from the sale of the previous generation vacuums is expected to decline by $500,000 per annum once this new vacuum is introduced. The overall allocated manufacturing overhead will remain constant, with the new high-end Clear-Klean vacuum absorbing $2,000,000 of it per year.
