Project Description:


company a has developed a newly patented product—a corner fan with two blades that will fully circulate air in an l-shaped room. to bring the product to market, company a will need to purchase a new production machine at a cost of $360,000. the new machine will be depreciated using the double declining balance method using a six-year life for three years, and then the method will be changed to straight line for the remaining three years

expected weekly sales volume: 200 units

selling price: $86

incremental direct material costs per unit: $42

incremental direct labor cost per unit: $16

incremental manufacturing overhead allocation per unit: $12.50

incremental annual selling and administration expenses: $60,000

cost of capital: 15%

corporate marginal tax rate: 25%

company a expects a salvage value of $30,000 for this machine at the end of six years. an additional $40,000 in working capital will be required to support the operation of the machine due to the additional raw material inventory needed.
