Chapter 016: Capital Expenditure Decisions

1. Green is considering the replacement of some machinery that has zero book value and a

current market value of $2,800. One possible alternative is to invest in new machinery that

costs $30,000. The new equipment has a four-year service life and an estimated salvage value

of $3,500, will produce annual cash operating savings of $9,400, and will require a $2,200

overhaul in year 3. The company uses straight-line depreciation.

Required:

Prepare a net-present-value analysis of Green's replacement decision, assuming an 8% hurdle

rate and no income taxes. Should the machinery be acquired? Note: Round calculations to the

nearest dollar.

Telecommunications common stock at $35 per share. The company paid a $1.50 dividend per

share on December 28 of that year, and raised the amount by $0.50 per share for a distribution

on December 28, 20x2. Rebecca sold her entire investment on December 30, 20x2, generating

a $5,000 gain on the sale of stock.

Required:

A. Prepare a dated listing of the cash inflows and outflows related to Rebecca's stock

investment. Ignore income taxes.

B. Assume that Rebecca has a 10% hurdle rate for all investments. Rounding to the nearest

dollar, compute the net present value of her investment in Bazooka and determine whether she

achieved her 10% goal.

3. Mark Industries is currently purchasing part no. 76 from an outside supplier for $80 per

unit. Because of supplier reliability problems, the company is considering producing the part

internally in a currently idle manufacturing plant. Annual volume over the next six years is

expected to total 300,000 units at variable manufacturing costs of $75 per unit.

Mark must acquire $80,000 of new equipment if it reopens the plant. The equipment has a

six-year service life and a $14,000 salvage value, and will be depreciated by the straight-line

method. Repairs and maintenance are expected to average $5,200 per year in years 4-6, and

the equipment will be sold at the end of its life.

Required:

Rounding to the nearest dollar, use the net-present-value method (total-cost approach) and a

12% hurdle rate to determine whether Mark should make or buy part no. 76. Ignore income

taxes.

16-2

Chapter 016: Capital Expenditure Decisions

4. The Airways Company is planning a project that is expected to last for six years and

generate annual net cash inflows of $75,000. The project will require the purchase of a

$280,000 machine, which is expected to have a salvage value of $10,000 at the end of the six-

year period. In addition to annual operating costs, the machine will require a $50,000 overhaul

at the end of the fourth year. The company presently has a 12% minimum desired rate of

return.

The accountant recommends that the project be rejected because it does not meet the

company's minimum desired rate of return. Ignore income taxes.

Required:

A. What criticism(s) would you make of the accountant's evaluation?

B. Use the net-present-value method and determine whether the project should be accepted.

C. Based on your answer in requirement "B," is the internal rate of return greater or less than

12%? Explain.

5. Harrison Township is studying a 700-acre site for a new landfill. The new site will save

$70,000 in annual operating costs for 10 years, as Harrison currently uses the landfill of a

neighboring municipality. Other data are:

Site preparation costs: $110,000

Hurdle rate: 6%

Required:

A. Use the net-present-value method and determine whether the landfill should be acquired.

B. Determine the landfill's approximate internal rate of return.

16-3

Chapter 016: Capital Expenditure Decisions

6. Gotham Corporation is considering the acquisition of a new machine that costs $149,040.

The machine is expected to have a four-year service life and will produce annual savings in

cash operating costs of $45,000. Gotham evaluates investments by using the internal rate of

return and ignores income taxes.

Required:

A. Briefly define the internal rate of return.

B. What relationship holds true at the internal rate of return with respect to discounted cash

inflows and discounted cash outflows? With respect to net present value?

C. Compute the machine's internal rate of return.

7. Consider the five items that follow, which are related to independent investment

opportunities.

Annual straight-line depreciation: $75,000

Annual savings in cash operating costs: $120,000

Advertising expenses related to a new marketing campaign in year 2: $35,000

Sale of an asset in year 6: Loss on sale, $60,000; proceeds received by seller, $23,000

Required:

Complete the following table, inserting the (pre-discounted) cash flow amounts that would be

used in a net-present-value analysis. Column A should be completed based on the assumption

of no income taxes; in contrast, Column B should be completed assuming the relevant

company is subject to a 30% income tax rate. Be sure to note cash outflows in parentheses.

Chapter 016: Capital Expenditure Decisions

8. Simon Company is considering a $5.4 million asset investment that has a four-year

service life and a $400,000 salvage value. The investment is expected to produce annual

savings in cash operating costs of $860,000 and will require a $250,000 overhaul in year 3,

which is fully-deductible for tax purposes.

Simon uses the net-present-value method to analyze investments. Asset investments are

depreciated by the straight-line method, ignoring salvage values in related computations.

Required:

A. Ignoring income taxes, determine the (pre-discounted) cash-flow amounts that would be

used in a net-present-value analysis for (1) the asset acquisition, (2) annual savings in cash

operating costs, (3) annual straight-line depreciation, (4) the overhaul in year 3, and (5)

disposal of the asset in year 4. Note cash outflows in parentheses.

B. Repeat requirement "A," assuming the company is subject to a 30% income tax rate.

9. Smith Corporation recently purchased a $1,200,000 asset that has a three-year service life

and no salvage value. The company is subject to a 30% income tax rate and employs a 12%

after-tax hurdle rate in capital investment decisions.

Management is studying whether to depreciate the asset by using the straight-line method or

the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS). Assume that the following

MACRS factors are in effect: year 1, 33%; year 2, 45%; year 3, 15%; and year 4, 7%

Required:

A. Calculate the total depreciation expense that Smith will record under each method.

B. Calculate the total tax savings that will occur with each method.

C. On the basis of your calculations in part "B," which of the two methods will management

likely prefer? Explain your answer.

D. Compute the present value of the tax savings for each method, rounding to the nearest

dollar.

service life by the straight-line method. Custom is subject to a 30% income tax rate.

after-tax hurdle rate.

Required:

A. Determine the discounted cash flows that would be reflected in the analysis in year 0 and

year 1.

B. Determine the discounted cash flow that would be reflected in the analysis in year 6,

assuming that Custom sells the equipment for only $450,000 because of a recent change in

market conditions.

11. You are reviewing some material that deals with investment analysis, preparing for your

first day on the job at Franklin Enterprises. Consider the cash flows that follow.

2. Straight-line depreciation of $20,000 in year 2 of a long-term investment.

3. Annual savings in cash operating costs of $50,000 over the next eight years.

4. Sale of a machine for $35,000 at the end of its six-year service life. The machine has a

book value of $25,000.

5. A $6,000 equipment overhaul in year 5 that is fully deductible for income tax purposes.

Required:

Calculate the discounted cash flow that is appropriate for each of the preceding items.

Assume a 10% after-tax hurdle rate and a 30% income tax rate, and round to the nearest

dollar.

16-6

Chapter 016: Capital Expenditure Decisions

12. The Warren Machine Tool Company is considering the addition of a computerized lathe to

its equipment inventory. The initial cost of the equipment is $600,000, and the lathe is

expected to have a useful life of five years and no salvage value. The cost savings and

increased capacity attributable to the machine are estimated to generate increases in the firm's

annual cash inflows (before considering depreciation) of $180,000. The machine will be

depreciated as follows for tax purposes: $200,000 in year 1, $266,700 in year 2, $88,860 in

year 3, and $44,440 in year 4.

Warren is currently in the 40% income tax bracket. A 10% after-tax rate of return is desired.

Required:

A. What is the net present value of the investment? Round to the nearest dollar.

B. Should the machine be acquired by the firm?

C. Assume that the equipment will be sold at the end of its useful life for $100,000. If the

depreciation amounts are not revised, calculate the dollar impact of this change on the total

net present value.

13. Worrell Industries is currently purchasing part no. 456 from an outside supplier for $90

per unit. Because of supplier reliability problems, the company is considering producing the

part internally in a currently idle manufacturing plant. Annual volume over the next five years

is expected to total 400,000 units at variable manufacturing costs of $88 per unit.

Worrell must acquire $200,000 of new equipment if it reopens the plant. The equipment has a

five-year service life and a $20,000 salvage value, and will be depreciated by the straight-line

method. (Note: Worrell ignores salvage values in depreciation calculations.) Normal

equipment maintenance is expected to total $12,000 in year 4, and the equipment will be sold

at the end of its life.

Required:

Rounding to the nearest dollar, use the net-present-value method (total-cost approach) and a

12% after-tax hurdle rate to determine whether Worrell should make or buy part no. 456. The

company is subject to a 30% income tax rate.
