Question

You are a project manager. You are estimating the cash flows of a potential project that requires an investment of $200,000, including installation cost, and $30,000 in working capital, which will be fully recaptured at the end of the project. The machine has an estimated life of six years and will be depreciated via the simplified straight-line method. The project is expected to raise the firm’s annual revenues by $330,000 and increase annual costs by $125,000. The machine you purchase for the project can be sold for $40,000 in six years. The firm has a marginal tax rate of 40%. What is the terminal value of the project?

Answer #1

Answer : **Terminal Value of the project is $
54,000**

**Calculation of Terminal Value of Project**

Terminal Value is the Cash flow associated with closure the project at the end of its useful life. It does NOT include the differential cash flow from the final year of operations. It generally includes the cash from the disposal of the asset (including taxes) and the recapture of working capital.

**Terminal Value = Recapture of Working
Capital**

**+ Sale Value of Asset**

**(-) Taxes on Gain of Sale of Asset**

Therefore Terminal Value = 30000 + 40000 - 16000

**Terminal Value = $ 54,000**

Release of Working Capital = $ 30,000

Book value = 0 (as at the end of period 6 Book value will be 0 as it will be depreciated on Straight line method.)

Sale Value = $ 40,000

Threfore Gain on Sale will be $ 40,000

Tax on Gain of Sale = 40000 * 40 % = 16,000

XYZ Company is considering whether a project requiring the
purchase of new equipment is worth investing. The cost of a new
machine is $340,000 including shipping and installation. The
project will increase annual revenues by $400,000 and annual costs
by $100,000. The machine will be depreciated via straight-line
depreciation for three years to a salvage value of $40,000. If the
firm does this project, $30,000 in net working capital will be
required, which will be fully recaptured at the end...

(Calculating project cash flows and NPV) You are considering
expanding your product line that currently consists of skateboards
to include gas-powered skateboards, and you feel you can sell 8
comma 000 of these per year for 10 years (after which time this
project is expected to shut down with solar-powered skateboards
taking over). The gas skateboards would sell for $110 each with
variable costs of $50 for each one produced, and annual fixed
costs associated with production would be $200,000....
