The undiscounted net future cash flows from use and eventual disposal of the wireless division are $70,000 and the present value of these cash flows is $45,000. The land can be sold immediately for $35,000; however, the buildings and equipment are specialized and cannot be used elsewhere and thus have no resale value.
