Carson Electronics is currently considering whether to ac-quire a new materials-handling machine for its manufacturing operations. The machine costs $ 760,000 and will be depreciated using straight- line depreciation toward a zero salvage value over the next five years. During the life of the machine, no new capital expenditures or investments in working capital will be required. The new materials- handling machine is expected to save Carson Electronics $ 250,000 per year before taxes of 30%. Carson’s CFO recently analyzed the firm’s opportunity cost of capital and estimated it to be 9%.
a. What are the annual free cash flows for the project?
b. What are the project’s NPV and IRR? Should Carson Electronics accept the project?
