Thomson Media is considering some new equipment whose data are shown below. The equipment has a 3 year tax life and would be fully depreciated by the straight line method over 3 years but it would have a positve pre-tax salvage value at the end of year 3, when the project would be closed down. Also, some new working capital would be required, but it would be recovered at the end of the project's life. Revenues and other operating costs are expected to be constant over the project's 3 year life. What is the project's NPV?
WACC = 10%
Net investment in fixed assets (depreciable basis) = $70,000
Required new working capital = $10,000
Straight line depr rate = 33.333%
Sales revenues each year = $75,000
Operating costs (excl depr) each year = $30,000
Expected pretax salvage value = $5,000
Tax rate = 35%
