We are examining a new project. We expect to sell 8,900 units per year at \$195 net cash flow apiece (including CCA) for the next 16 years. In other words, the annual operating cash flow is projected to be \$195 × 8,900 = \$1,735,500. The relevant discount rate is 12%, and the initial investment required is \$5,772,000. Suppose you think it is likely that expected sales will be revised upward to 9,650 units if the first year is a success and revised downward to 4,450 units if the first year is not a success. a. If success and failure are equally likely, what is the NPV of the project? Consider the possibility of abandonment in answering. (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round the final answer to 2 decimal places.

b. After the first year, the project can be dismantled and sold for \$2,938,000. What is the value of the option to abandon? (Negative answer should be indicated by a minus sign. Do not round intermediate calculations. Round the final answer to 2 decimal places. Omit \$ sign in your response.) The value of the option to abandon \$ _____
