Question: Scanlin Inc is considering a project that will result in

Scanlin, Inc., is considering a project that will result in initial after tax cash savings of $1.8 million at the end of the first year, and these savings will grow at a rate of 2 percent per year indefinitely. The firm has a target debt–equity ratio of .80, a cost of equity of 12 percent, and an after tax cost of debt of 4.8 percent. The cost-saving proposal is somewhat riskier than the usual project the firm undertakes; management uses the subjective approach and applies an adjustment factor of 12 percent to the cost of capital for such risky projects. Under what circumstances should the company take on the project?
