Question

A manager of Cascade Mutual Funds is contemplating acquiring servers to operate its website. The servers will cost $660,000 cash and will have zero terminal salvage value. The recovery period and useful life are both 3 years. Annual pretax cash savings from operations will be $300,000. The income tax rate is 40%, and the required after-tax rate of return is 12%.
1. Compute the NPV, assuming straight-line depreciation of $220,000 yearly for tax purposes. Should Cascade acquire the computers? Explain.
2. Suppose the computers will be fully depreciated at the end of year 3 but can be sold for $90,000 cash. Compute the NPV. Should Cascade acquire the computers? Explain.
3. Ignore number 2. Suppose the required after-tax rate of return is 8% instead of 12%. Should Cascade acquire the computers? Show computations.
