Description

I need to figure out the initial outlay for this problem:

We are considering the introduction of a new product.
Currently we are in the 34% tax bracket with a 15% discount
rate. This project is expected to last five years and then,
because this is somewhat of a fad project, it will be
terminated. The following information describes the new
project:

Cost of new plant and equipment: $ 7,900,000
Shipping and installation costs: $ 100,000
Unit sales:
Year Units Sold
1 70,000
2 120,000
3 140,000
4 80,000
5 60,000

Sales price per unit: $300/unit in years 1–4 and
$260/unit in year 5.

Variable cost per unit: $180/unit

Annual fixed costs: $200,000 per year

working capital requirements : There will be an initial
working capital requirement of $100,000 just to get
production started. For each year, the total investment in net
working capital will be equal to 10% of the dollar value of
sales for that year. Thus, the investment in working capital will
increase during years 1 through 3, then decrease in year 4.
Finally, all working capital is liquidated at the termination of the
project at the end of year 5.

Depreciation method: Straight-line over 5 years
assuming the plant and equipment have no salvage value
after 5 years
