Question

Consider a four-year project with the following information: initial fixed asset investment = $491,731; straight-line depreciation to zero over the four-year life; zero salvage value; price = $33; variable costs = $24; fixed costs = $195,602; quantity sold = 79,813 units; tax rate = 36 percent. Calculate the sensitivity of the OCF to changes in the quantity sold.

**[Hint: Think of this as, "How much does OCF change if we
can sell one more unit each year?"]**

**(Do not round intermediate calculations and round your
final answer to 2 decimal places. Omit the "$" sign and commas in
your response. For example, $1.2345 should be entered as
1.23.)**

Answer #1

Initial Investment = $491,731

Useful Life = 4 years

Annual Depreciation = Initial Investment / Useful Life

Annual Depreciation = $491,731 / 4

Annual Depreciation = $122,932.75

If quantity sold is 79,813:

OCF = [(Price - Variable Costs) * Quantity Sold - Fixed Costs] *
(1 - Tax Rate) + Tax Rate * Depreciation

OCF = [($33.00 - $24.00) * 79,813 - $195,602] * (1 - 0.36) + 0.36 *
$122,932.75

OCF = $522,715 * 0.64 + 0.36 * $122,932.75

OCF = $378,793.39

If quantity sold is 79,814:

OCF = [(Price - Variable Costs) * Quantity Sold - Fixed Costs] *
(1 - Tax Rate) + Tax Rate * Depreciation

OCF = [($33.00 - $24.00) * 79,814 - $195,602] * (1 - 0.36) + 0.36 *
$122,932.75

OCF = $522,724 * 0.64 + 0.36 * $122,932.75

OCF = $378,799.15

Sensitivity of OCF = Change in OCF / Change in Quantity
Sold

Sensitivity of OCF = ($378,799.15 - $378,793.39) / (79,814 -
79,813)

Sensitivity of OCF = $5.76

(ABC) Consider a 4 year project with the following
information:
Initial fixed asset investment = $475,000;
straight line depreciation to zero over the 4-year life;
zero salvage value;
price = $26; variable costs = $18;

decimal places)

Quad Enterprises is considering a new three-year expansion
project that requires an initial fixed asset investment of $3.09
million. The fixed asset will be depreciated straight-line to zero
over its three-year tax life, after which time it will be
worthless. The project is estimated to generate $2,132,664 in
annual sales, with costs of $805,848. If the tax rate is 34 percent
and the required return on the project is 11 percent, what is the
project's NPV? (Negative amount should be...
