**Question**

Jen and Barry's;Jen and Barry?s Ice Cream Shoppe is considering the purchase of a new mixing machine. The new machine would be an expansion project (it would not replace any current machine) and it would cost $6,000. It has an estimated useful life of 5 years, and would be depreciated on a straight-line 5 year schedule. At the end of its useful life it will be sold (scrapped) for $0 salvage value. The machine would produce a net operating income (revenue minus expenses), not including taxes or depreciation, of $3,500 per year for its useful life. There is a one time installation cost of $2,500 that must be borne when the machine is purchased. There are no working capital (inventory or receivables) affects associated with the project. The firm's marginal tax rate is 40%. J&B's has a debt ratio of 40%, which matches their target capital structure.;Debit ratio= total assets -total equity = 40%;Total assets;Jen and Barry?s stock trades on the NYSE. Standard and Poor?s lists their company beta as 1.2.10-year US Bonds are yielding 5%, and the return on the market is expected to be 12%. J&B Bonds with a 12-year maturity are trading at $1,100 with a coupon rate of 7% and semi-annual coupon payments.;Given the above information, calculate (1) J&B?s after-tax cost of debt, (b) J&B?s cost of equity capital, (c) J&B?s Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC). Then, assume that the J&B WACC is 24% (it?s not) and calculate the (4) NPV and (5) IRR for the proposed purchase, and (6) indicate whether Jen and Barry should proceed with the purchase and why or why not.
