Choosing Between Two Investment Options

Question

Your firm is examining the viability of a capital investment project that will use excess capacity in the current packaging plant. As a consequence of the project using up the excess capacity, your firm anticipates having to spend $5.0 million on a new packaging plant at the end of 3 years from today rather than $6.0 million at the end of 5 years from today as originally planned. Assume the plant would be depreciated for tax purposes on a straight-line basis over five years, and the corporate income tax rate is 40%. Using a weighted average cost of capital of 14%, what is your best estimate of the incremental effect in net present value terms of this “excess capacity” issue? Show all your work.

    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
