considering expanding your product line that currently
consists of skateboards to include gas-powered skateboards, and you feel you can sell
11,000 of these per year for 10 years (after which time this project is expected to shut down with
solar-powered skateboards taking over). The gas skateboards would sell for $70 each with variable
costs of $25 for each one produced, while annual fixed costs associated with production
would be $170,000. In addition, there would be a $1,500,000 initial expenditure associated with
the purchase of new production equipment. It is assumed that this initial expenditure will be
depreciated using the simplified straight-line method down to zero over 10 years. This project
will also require a one-time initial investment of $70,000 in net working capital associated with
inventory and that working capital investment will be recovered when the project is shut down.
Finally, assume that the firm’s marginal tax rate is 35 percent.
a. What is the initial outlay associated with this project?
b. What are the annual free cash flows associated with this project for years 1 through 9?
c. What is the terminal cash flow in year 10 (that is, what is the free cash flow in year 10 plus any additional cash flows associated with termination of this project)?
d. What is the projects NPV given a required rate of return of 11 percent?
