Question

An engineer proposes to buy a machine for $1,200,000 today that will save $500,000 in labor costs at the end of each of the next 3 years. If the company demands a 12% retum on investments such as this, what is the net present worth (NPW) of the proposal? Should it be funded?

Answer #1

Formula to calculate Net present worth (NPW) of Investment

Net present worth (NPW) = Cost saving of year 1/ (1+ r) ^1 + Cost saving of year 2/ (1+r) ^2 + Cost saving of year 3/ (1+ r) ^3 – Initial Investment (cost of machine)

Where r is the requited rate of return on investment = 12%

Therefore,

NPW = $500,000/ (1+0.12) ^1 + $500,000/ (1+0.12) ^2 + $500,000/ (1+0.12) ^3 - $1,200,000

= $446,428.57 + $398,596.94 + $355,890.12 -$1,200,000

= $1,200,915.63 - $1,200,000

NPW = $915.63

The Net present Worth (NPW) of the proposal is $915.63, as the NPW is positive therefore the proposal should be funded.

I save money to buy a house. I have collected € 1000 today and I
am expected to save an additional amount of € 1000 at the end of
each of the next 6 years. Assuming the deposit rate is 12%, how
much money will I have accumulated after 6 years?

Jiayao is evaluating a new machine costing $6,000 today. The
machine should save the company $3,400 (cash inflow) annually for
each of the next two years. As a result of a $1400 overhaul of the
machine (cash outflow) at the end of the 2nd year, a savings of
$4200 (cash inflow) will be realized in year 3. All cash flows are
after tax. What is the NPV of this machine if the firm’s cost of
capital is 11 percent? Also,...

The
Springdale Corporation plans to purchase a demolition and wrecking
machine to save labor costs. The machine costs $60,000 and has a
salvage value of $10,000 at the end of 5 years. The machine is
expected to be in operation for 5 years, and it will be depreciated
by the straight line method up to the salvage value. The
corporation specifies an after-tax MARR including inflation of 10%
and has an income tax rate of 34%. The annual inflation rate...

A company can buy a machine that is expected to have a
three-year life and a $40,000 salvage value. The machine will cost
