Voxland Industries purchased a computer for $10,000, which it will depreciate straight line
over five years to a $1,000 salvage value.
The computer will then be sold at that price.
The
company’s marginal tax rate is 40%.
Calculate the cash flows associated with the computer
from its purchase to its eventual sale including the years in between.
(
Hint:
Depreciate the
difference between the cost of the computer and the salvage value.
At the end of the
depreciation life there’s a net book value remaining equal to the salvage value
.

Resolve the previous problem assuming Voxland uses the 5-year Modified Accelerated Cost
Recovery System (MACRS) with no salvage value to depreciate the computer.
Continue to assume
the machine is sold after five years for $1,000.
(
Hint:
Apply the MACRS rules for computers in the
chapter to the entire cost of the computer.
Notice, however, that there will be a positive net book
value after five years because MACRS takes five years of depreciation over six years due to the
half-year convention.)
SOLUTION:
Cash flow in years 1-4 is just the tax saved by depreciation.
Cash flow in year 5 is the tax saved by depreciation plus the proceeds from selling the machine less
taxes on that sale.
The taxable profit on the sale is $1,000 less the book value at that time.

Cash Flow Estimation
9.
Shelton Pharmaceuticals Inc. is introducing a new drug for pain relief.
Management expects
to sell 3 million units in the first year at $8.50 each, and anticipates 10% growth in sales per
year thereafter.
Operating costs are estimated at 70% of revenues.
Shelton invested $20
million in depreciable equipment to develop and produce this product.
The equipment will
be depreciated straight line over 15 years to a salvage value of $2.0 million.
Shelton’s
marginal tax rate is 40%.
Calculate the project’s operating cash flows in its third year.

Harry and Flo Simone are planning to start a restaurant.
Stoves, refrigerators, other kitchen
equipment, and furniture are expected to cost $50,000 all of which will be depreciated straight line
over five years.
Construction and other costs of getting started will be $30,000. The Simones expect
the following revenue stream.

Food costs are expected to be 35% of revenues while other variable expenses are forecast at
25% of revenues.
Fixed overhead will be $40,000 per year.
All operating expenses will be paid in
cash, revenues will be collected immediately and inventory is negligible, so working capital need
not be considered.
Assume the combined state and federal tax rate is 25%.
Do not assume a tax
credit in loss years and ignore tax loss carry forwards.
(Taxes are simply zero when EBT is a loss.)
Develop a cash flow forecast for the Simones’ restaurant.
