Hillsong Inc. manufactures snowsuits. Hillsong is considering
purchasing a new sewing machine at a cost of $2.45 million. Its
existing machine was purchased five years ago at a price of $1.8
million; six months ago, Hillsong spent $55,000 to keep it
operational. The existing sewing machine can be sold today for
$240,438. The new sewing machine would require a one-time, $85,000
training cost. Operating costs would decrease by the following
amounts for years 1 to 7:
Year 1 $390,900
The new sewing machine would be depreciated according to the declining-balance method at a rate of 20%. The salvage value is expected to be $379,100. This new equipment would require maintenance costs of $94,000 at the end of the fifth year. The cost of capital is 9%.
