Question 1

Raphael Restaurant is considering the purchase of a $10,500 soufflé maker. The soufflé maker has an economic life of four years and will be fully depreciated by the straight-line method. The machine will produce 2,250 soufflés per year, with each costing $2.70 to make and priced at $6.00. Assume that the discount rate is 15 percent and the tax rate is 34 percent.
What is the NPV of the project? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places. (e.g., 32.16))
Should Raphael make the purchase?

Question 2

Down Under Boomerang, Inc., is considering a new three-year expansion project that requires an initial fixed asset investment of $2.94 million. The fixed asset falls into the three-year MACRS class. The project is estimated to generate $2,160,000 in annual sales, with costs of $839,000. The project requires an initial investment in net working capital of $380,000, and the fixed asset will have a market value of $250,000 at the end of the project.
 
If the tax rate is 34 percent and the required return is 10 percent, what is the project’s Year 1 net cash flow? Year 2? Year 3? (Use MACRS) (Enter your answers in dollars, not millions of dollars, i.e. 1,234,567. Negative amounts should be indicated by a minus sign. Do not round intermediate calculations and round your final answers to 2 decimal places. (e.g., 32.16))
What is the NPV? (Enter your answer in dollars, not millions of dollars, i.e. 1,234,567. Do not round intermediate calculations and round your final answer to 2 decimal places. (e.g., 32.16))

Question 3

Your firm is contemplating the purchase of a new $530,000 computer-based order entry system. The system will be depreciated straight-line to zero over its five-year life. It will be worth $50,000 at the end of that time. You will save $310,000 before taxes per year in order processing costs, and you will be able to reduce working capital by $65,000 (this is a one-time reduction). If the tax rate is 34 percent, what is the IRR for this project? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places. (e.g., 32.16))

Question 4

Dog Up! Franks is looking at a new sausage system with an installed cost of $460,000. This cost will be depreciated straight-line to zero over the project’s five-year life, at the end of which the sausage system can be scrapped for $66,000. The sausage system will save the firm $230,000 per year in pretax operating costs, and the system requires an initial investment in net working capital of $25,000. If the tax rate is 30 percent and the discount rate is 8 percent, what is the NPV of this project? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your final answer to 2 decimal places. (e.g., 32.16))

Question 5

An asset used in a four-year project falls in the five-year MACRS class for tax purposes. The asset has an acquisition cost of $6,080,000 and will be sold for $1,280,000 at the end of the project. If the tax rate is 35 percent, what is the aftertax salvage value of the asset? Refer to MACRS schedule (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places. Enter your answer in dollars, not millions of dollars, i.e. 1,234,567.)

Question 6

Hagar Industrial Systems Company (HISC) is trying to decide between two different conveyor belt systems. System A costs $220,000, has a four-year life, and requires $70,000 in pretax annual operating costs. System B costs $312,000, has a six-year life, and requires $64,000 in pretax annual operating costs. Both systems are to be depreciated straight-line to zero over their lives and will have zero salvage value. HISC always needs a conveyor belt system; when one wears out, it must be replaced. Assume the tax rate is 34 percent and the discount rate is 8 percent.
What is the EAC for each project using aftertax cash flows? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places. (e.g., 32.16). Negative amounts should be indicated by a minus sign.)
