Tamworth Limited is considering embarking on a new project. The company has a 30% tax rate and 15% required rate of return. The project involves the introduction of a new product. The project is expected to last five years and then, because this is somewhat of a fad product, it will be terminated.


Cost of new plant and equipment : $9,900,000

Shipping and installation costs     : $100,000

Sales price per unit                      : $280/unit in years 1-4; $180/unit in year 5.

Variable cost per unit                   : $140 per unit

Annual fixed costs                       : $300,000

Predicted sales for the next five years:

Year 1 2 3 4 5
Units sold (number) 70,000 100,000 140,000 70,000 60,000


Working capital:  There will be an initial working capital requirement of $100,000 to get production started. For each year, the total investment in net working capital will equal 10% of the dollar value of sales for that year. Thus, the investment in working capital will increase during years 1 to 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: The straight-line depreciation method will be used over five years. Is assumed that the plant and equipment will have no salvage value after five years.
