The firm expects to be able to sell the new equipment when it is finished using it (after 5 years) 10,000. The existing equipment has a book value of $20,000 and a market value of $12,000. Variable costs are expected to total 70% of revenue. The additional sales will require an initial investment in net working capital of $15,000, which is expected to be recovered at the end of the project (after 5 years). Assume the firm uses straight line depreciation. The firm?s marginal tax rate is 30%. and its weighted-average cost of capital is 10%. a) What is the required initial investment (at t = 0)? b) At what discount rate will this project break even?c) Should the firm purchase the new equipment? Be sure to justify your recommendation.;Question #3Your company is interested in having a new facility constructed.
