Wet for the Summer, Inc., manufactures filters for swimming pools. The company is deciding whether to implement a new technology in its pool filters.

Suppose that in one year, if the demand for the new technology is low, the company can sell the technology for $9.4 million. What is the value of the option to abandon?
