# Calculate Returns for a New Machine for the Next 10 Years

Question

Kenneth Su Gold Corp (KSGC) is considering the purchase of a new piece of machinery. The new machinery would cost \$80,000. You are given the following facts:

• The new machine will replace an existing machine that has a current market value of \$30,000.
• The new machine would reduce before tax operating costs by \$15,000 per year for 10 years. These cost savings would occur at year-end.
• The old machine is now 5 years old. It is expected to last for another 10 years, and will have no resale value at the end of those 10 years. It was purchased for \$60,000 and is being depreciated at a CCA rate of 20%.
• The new machine will also be depreciated at a CCA rate of 20%. KSGC expects to be able to sell the machine for \$10,000 at the end of 10 years. At that time KSGC plans to reinvest in a new machine in the same CCA pool.
• The new machine requires a one-time increase in net working capital of \$5,000. This amount is required at the beginning of the project and is fully recovered at the project’s end.
• The appropriate discount rate is 12% and the tax rate is 40%.

Summary

The question belongs to Finance and it is about a company considering buying a new machine at a cost of \$80,000. The company wants to calculate the returns from the machine for the next 10 years with discount rate, tax rate and NPV.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
