Question

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. What is the annual cash flow of this project in the second year if the tax rate is 40%? Round to the nearest penny. Do not include a dollar sign in your answer.

Answer #1

Cost of Machine = $340,000

Salvage Value = $40,000

Useful Life = 3 years

Annual Depreciation = (Cost of Machine - Salvage Value) / Useful
Life

Annual Depreciation = ($340,000 - $40,000) / 3

Annual Depreciation = $100,000

Annual Revenues = $400,000

Annual Costs = $100,000

Annual OCF = (Revenues - Costs) * (1 - tax) + tax *
Depreciation

Annual OCF = ($400,000 - $100,000) * (1 - 0.40) + 0.40 *
$100,000

Annual OCF = $300,000 * 0.60 + 0.40 * $100,000

Annual OCF = $220,000

Year 2:

Annual Cash Flow = Annual OCF

Annual Cash Flow = $220,000

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

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...

The Virginia Cane Company (VCC) is considering investing in a
new cane manufacturing machine that has an estimated life of 4
years. The cost of the machine is $50,000 and the machine will be
depreciated straight-line over its 4-year life to a salvage value
of $0. While the machine will be fully depreciated over the
project’s life, management thinks the cane machine can be sold for
$3,000, excluding applicable tax, at project end.

A company is considering a new project requiring an upfront
fixed-asset investment of $1,000,000 with an economic life of five
years. Depreciation is taken on a straight-line basis, with no
expected salvage value. Net working capital required immediately is
expected to be $100,000 and will be recovered in full upon the
project's completion in five years. In the pessimistic-scenario
forecast, the annual sales volume is 44,700 units, while the sale
price is $143 per unit with a variable cost of...
