A manufacturing firm is thinking of launching a new product. The firm expects to sell \$950,000 of the new product in the first year and \$1,500,000 each year thereafter. Direct costs including labor and materials will be 45% of sales. Indirect incremental costs are estimated at \$95,000 a year. The project requires a new plant that will cost a total of \$1,500,000, which will be a depreciated straight line over the next 5 years. The new line will also require an additional net investment in inventory and receivables in the amount of \$200,000.
Assume there is no need for additional investment in building the land for the project. The firm's marginal tax rate is 35%, and its cost of capital is 10%.
To receive full credit on this include formulas and calculations used to arrive at financial values.
Guidelines:
• Using the information above
o Prepare a statement showing the incremental cash flows for this project over an 8-year period. (Similar to an income statement)
o Calculate the payback period (P/B), net present value (NPV), IRR and discounted payback period for the project.
o Answer the following questions based on your P/B and NPV calculations:
 Do you think the project should be accepted? Why?
 Assume the company has a P/B (payback) policy of not accepting projects with life of over 3 years.
 If the project required additional investment in land and building, how would this affect your decision? Explain.
