RET Inc. currently has one product, low-priced stoves. RET Inc.  has decided to sell a new line of medium-priced stoves. Sales revenues for the new line of stoves are estimated at $50 million a year. Variable costs are 60% of sales.  The project is expected to last 10 years. Also, non-variable costs are $10,000,000 per year. The company has spent $4,000,000 in research and a marketing study that determined the company will lose (cannibalization) $10 million in sales a year of its existing low-priced stoves. The production variable cost of the existing low-priced stoves is $8 million a year.

The plant and equipment required for producing the new line of stoves costs $30,000,000 and will be depreciated down to zero over 30 years using straight-line depreciation. It is expected that the plant and equipment can be sold (salvage value) for $12,000,000 at the end of 10 years. The new stoves will also require today an increase in net working capital of $5,000,000 that will be returned at the end of the project.

The tax rate is 20 percent and the cost of capital is 10%.

1. What is the initial outlay (IO) for this project?

2. What is the annual Earnings before Interests, and Taxes (EBIT) for this project?
