A firm is considering expanding its line of soft drink production as a result of increased market share. The new production line will cost $350,000. The new line will be depreciated over its 7 year life using straight line depreciation (assume no salvage value for this calculation). Revenues are expected to increase $150,000 the first year and increase at a rate of $15,000 a year each year thereafter. Operating costs are expected to jump $60,000 in the first year and increase at a rate of $6000 per year each year thereafter. After seven years it is estimated that that machine will have a salvage value of $35,000. Net working capital is expected to increase by $60,000. The firm has a tax rate of 40%.
What is the net initial investment, the annual cash flows from the project and the terminal value?
