Both cars will be worthless at the;end of their life. If you intend to replace whichever type of car you choose;with the same thing when its life runs out, again and again out into the;foreseeable future, and if your business has a cost of capital of 12 percent;which one should you choose?EAC;Approach. You are considering the purchase of one of two machines used in your;manufacturing plant. Machine A has a life of two years, costs $80 initially;and then $125 per year in maintenance costs. Machine B costs $150 initially;has a life of three years, and requires $100 in annual maintenance costs.;Either machine must be replaced at the end of its life with an equivalent;machine. Which is the better machine for the firm? The discount rate is 12;percent and the tax rate is zero.Project;cash flows KADS Inc. has spent $400,000 on research to develop a new computer;game. The firm is planning to spend $200,000 on a machine to produce the new;game. Shipping and installation cost of the machine will be capitalized and;depreciated, they total $50,000. The machine has an expected life of three;years, a $75,000 estimated resale value, and falls under the MACRS 7-years;class life. Revenue from the new game is expected to be $600,000 per year, with;cost of $250,000 per year. The firm has a tax rate of 35 percent, an;opportunity cost of capital of 15 percent, and it expects net working capital;to increase by $100,000 at the beginning of the project. What will the cash flows;for this project be?Project;cash flows Mom?s cookies Inc. is considering the purchase of a new cookie oven.;The original cost of the old oven was $30,000, it is now five years old, and it;has a current market value of 13,333.33. The old oven is being depreciated over;a 10-years life toward a zero estimated salvage value on a straight-line basis;resulting in a current book value of $15,000 and an annual depreciation expense;of 3,000. The old oven can be used for six more years but has no market value after;its depreciable life is over. Management is contemplating the purchase of a new;oven whose cost is $25,000 and whose estimated salvage value is zero. Expected;before-tax cash savings from the new oven are $4,000 a year over its full MACRS;depreciable life. Depreciation is computed using MACRS over a 5-year life, and;the cost of capital is 10 percent. Assume a 40 percent tax rate. What will the;cash flows for this project be?
