All of the estimates in the report seem correct. You note that the consultants used​ straight-line depreciation for the new equipment that will be purchased today​ (year 0), which is what the accounting department recommended. They also calculated the depreciation assuming no salvage value for the equipment. The report concludes that because the project will increase earnings by $ 3.236 million per year for 10​ years, the project is worth $32.36 million. You think back to your glory days in finance class and realize there is more work to be​ done! ​First, you note that the consultants have not included the fact that the project will require $7.2 million in working capital up front​ (year 0), which will be fully recovered in year 10.​ Next, you see they have attributed $2.232 million of​ selling, general, and administrative expenses to the​ project, but you know that $1.116 million of this amount is overhead that will be incurred even if the project is not accepted.​ Finally, you know that accounting earnings are not the right thing to focus​ on!
