# Net Present Value of the Project Assignment | Homework For You

Cleveland Enterprises is considering the addition of a new product line.  The firm would not need additional factory space, but it would require the purchase of \$2.45 million of equipment installed.  The equipment would be depreciated using a 7-year accelerated depreciation schedule.  Additional inventory of 13% of the projected increase in next year’s sales would be necessary prior to each year of operation, but the entire value will be recovered at the end of the project.  The firm expects to sell 340,000 units during the first year of the project, increasing to 355,000 units during the next three years before decreasing to 100,000 during the fifth and final year of the project.  The product is expected to be obsolete at that point.  The expected sales price is \$13 per unit with a variable cost of \$6 per unit during the first year of operations.  Variable costs will increase by 5% per year, but the sales price remains fixed.  Fixed costs are estimated at \$610,000 during the first year, but will increase by 6% per year.  The firm’s tax rate is 21%.  The equipment has an estimated salvage value of \$500,000.
