Question

Consider a four-year project with the following information: initial fixed asset investment = $476061; straight-line depreciation to zero over the four-year life; zero salvage value; price = $34; variable costs = $24; fixed costs = $194366; quantity sold = 79941 units; tax rate = 31 percent. Calculate the sensitivity of the OCF to changes in the quantity sold. (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your final answer to 2 decimal places. Omit the "$" sign and commas in your response. For example, $1.2345 should be entered as 1.23.)

Answer #1

Initial Investment = $476,061

Useful Life = 4 years

Annual Depreciation = Initial Investment / Useful Life

Annual Depreciation = $476,061 / 4

Annual Depreciation = $119,015.25

If quantity sold are 79,941:

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

OCF = [($34 - $24) * 79,941 - $194,366] * (1 - 0.31) + 0.31 *
$119,015.25

OCF = $605,044 * 0.69 + 0.31 * $119,015.25

OCF = $454,375.09

If quantity sold are 79,950:

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

OCF = [($34 - $24) * 79,950 - $194,366] * (1 - 0.31) + 0.31 *
$119,015.25

OCF = $605,134 * 0.69 + 0.31 * $119,015.25

OCF = $454,437.19

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

Sensitivity of OCF = ($454,437.18 - $454,375.09) / (79,950 -
79,941)

Sensitivity of OCF = $62.10 / 9

Sensitivity of OCF = $6.90

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?"]

(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;

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...
