CME Inc. must develop the relevant cash flows for a replacement capital investment proposal.
The proposed asset costs $50,000 and has installation costs of $3,000. The asset will be
depreciated using a five-year recovery schedule. The existing equipment, which originally cost $25,000 and will be sold for $10,000, has been depreciated using an MACRS five-year recovery
schedule and three years of depreciation has already been taken. The new equipment is expected to result in incremental before-tax net profits of $1 5,000 per year. The firm has a 40 percent tax rate. Note: Assume that both the old and the new equipment will have terminal values of $0 at
the end of year 5. The WACC for Cuda Marine Engines, Inc. is 10%. Determine the net present value (NPV).
- Determine the intemal rate of return (IRR).
- Make the recommendation to accept or reject the replacement, and justify your answer.
