Question;We are considering the introduction of a new product.;Currently we are in the 34% tax bracket with a 15% discount;rate. This project is expected to last five years and then;because this is somewhat of a fad project, it will be;terminated. The following information describes the new;project;Cost of new plant and equipment: $ 7,900,000;Shipping and installation costs: $ 100,000;Unit sales;Sales price per unit: $300/unit in years 1?4 and;$260/unit in year 5.;Variable cost per unit: $180/unit;Annual fixed costs: $200,000 per year;Working capital requirements: There will be an initial;working capital requirement of $100,000 just to get;production started. For each year, the total investment in;net;working capital will be equal to 10% of the dollar value of;sales for that year.
