Question

Digital Organics (DO) has the opportunity to invest $1.15
million now (*t* = 0) and expects after-tax returns of
$730,000 in *t* = 1 and $830,000 in *t* = 2. The
project will last for two years only. The appropriate cost of
capital is 11% with all-equity financing, the borrowing rate is 7%,
and DO will borrow $270,000 against the project. This debt must be
repaid in two equal installments of $135,000 each. Assume debt tax
shields have a net value of $0.20 per dollar of interest
paid.

Calculate the project’s APV. **(Enter your answer in dollars,
not millions of dollars. Do not round intermediate calculations.
Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)**
