each, and 7,680 luxury motor coaches per year at $54,400 each. The

company wants to introduce a new portable camper to fill out its product

line; it hopes to sell 13,440 of these campers per year at $7,680 each. An

independent consultant has determined that if Winnebagel introduces the

new campers, it should boost the sales of its existing motor homes by 3,200

units per year, and reduce the sales of its motor coaches by 832 units per

year. The amount to use as the annual sales figure when evaluating this

project is $____________.

Summer Tyme, Inc., is considering a new 5-year expansion project that

requires an initial fixed asset investment of $5.778 million. The fixed asset

will be depreciated straight-line to zero over its 5-year tax life, after which

time it will be worthless. The project is estimated to generate $5,136,000 in

annual sales, with costs of $2,054,400. If the tax rate is 33 percent, the OCF

for this project is $___________.

Summer Tyme, Inc., is considering a new 5-year expansion project that

requires an initial fixed asset investment of $1.242 million. The fixed asset

will be depreciated straight-line to zero over its 5-year tax life, after which

time it will be worthless. The project is estimated to generate $1,104,000 in

annual sales, with costs of $441,600. If the tax rate is 32 percent and the

required return on the project is 9 percent, the NPV for this project is

$___________.

Summer Tyme, Inc., is considering a new 3-year expansion project that

requires an initial fixed asset investment of $1.404 million. The fixed asset

will be depreciated straight-line to zero over its 3-year tax life, after which

time it will have a market value of $109,200. The project requires an initial

investment in net working capital of $156,000. The project is estimated to

generate $1,248,000 in annual sales, with costs of $499,200. The tax rate is

32 percent and the required return on the project is 11 percent. The NPV for

this project is $____________.

Dog Up! Franks is looking at a new sausage system with an installed cost

of $904,800. This cost will be depreciated straight-line to zero over the

project’s 9-year life, at the end of which the sausage system can be scrapped

for $139,200. The sausage system will save the firm $278,400 per year in

pretax operating costs, and the system requires an initial investment in net

working capital of $64,960. If the tax rate is 34 percent and the discount

rate is 11 percent, the NPV of this project is $_______________.

Your firm is contemplating the purchase of a new $1,764,000 computerbased order entry system. The system will be depreciated straight-line to

zero over its 5-year life. It will be worth $157,500 at the end of that time.

You will save $693,000 before taxes per year in order processing costs and

you will be able to reduce working capital by $139,499 (this is a one-time

reduction). If the tax rate is 33 percent, the IRR for this project is

__________ percent.

depreciate the initial fixed asset investment straight-line to zero over the 6-year project life. It also estimates

$539,000 after dismantling costs. The marketing department estimates that the automakers will let the con

price of $250 per ton. The engineering department estimates you will need an initial net working capi

$441,000. You require a 15 percent return and face a marginal tax rate of 39 percent on this project.
