Using the information from problem 16 on Large Manufacturing, Inc., what is the

Terminal Year Non–Operating Cash Flow at the end of Year 3? Enter your answer

rounded to two decimal places. Do not enter \$ or comma in the answer box. For

Terminal year non operating cash flow will comprise of:

• Post tax salvage value
• Release of working capital

Pre tax salvage value = 9,000

Book value at the end of 3 years under 3 years MACRS depreciation plan = 7.41% = 7.41% x 70,000 = \$  5,187.00

Hence, gain on sale = 9,000 -  5,187.00 =  3,813.00

Hence, post tax salvage value = Pre tax salvage value - tax on gain on sale = 9,000 - 30% x 3,813 =  7,856.10

Release of working capital = \$ 10,000

Terminal year non operating cash flow = Post tax salvage value + Release of working capital = 7,856.10 + 10,000 = 17,856.10
