Dog Up! Franks is looking at a new sausage system with an installed cost of $525,000. The fixed asset will qualify for 100 percent bonus depreciation in the first year, at the end of which the sausage system can be scrapped for $85,000. The sausage system will save the firm $155,000 per year in pretax operating costs, and the system requires an initial investment in net working capital of $33,000. If the tax rate is 24 percent and the discount rate is 12 percent, what is the NPV of this project? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.)
