Question

Vaughn Inc. wants to purchase a new machine for $45,800,
excluding $1,500 of installation costs. The old machine was bought
five years ago and had an expected economic life of 10 years
without salvage value. This old machine now has a book value of
$2,400, and Vaughn Inc. expects to sell it for that amount. The new
machine would decrease operating costs by $10,000 each year of its
economic life. The straight-line depreciation method would be used
for the new machine, for a six-year period with no salvage
value.

**(a)**

Determine the cash payback period. **(Round cash payback
period to 2 decimal places, e.g. 10.53.)**

Cash payback period | years |

**(b)**

Determine the approximate internal rate of return.
**(Round answer to 0 decimal places, e.g. 13%. For
calculation purposes, use 5 decimal places as displayed in the
factor table provided.)**

Internal rate of return | % |

**(c)**

Assuming the company has a required rate of return of 7%, determine
whether the new machine should be purchased.

The investment
should/should not be accepted. |

Answer #2

Initial investment = $45,800+1,500-2,400 = $44,900

a. Cash pay back period = Initial investment / Annual cost savings

Cash pay back period = $44,900 / $10,000 = 4.49 years

b. Internal rate of return:

Annual value = 4.49 years

At 4.49 for 6 years = 9%

Hence IRR = 9%

c.

Net present value = Present value of cash inflow - Initial investment

Present value of cash flow = $10,000 * 4.76654 ([email protected]%, 6years) = $47,665

Net present value = $47,665 - $44,900 = $2,765

The investment should be accepted as NPV is positive.
