Burton, a manufacturer of snowboards, is considering replacing an existing piece of equipment with a more sophisticated machine. The following information is given.

The proposed machine will cost $120,000 and have installation costs of $15,000. It will be depreciated using a 3 year MACRS recovery schedule. It can be sold for $60,000 after three years of use (at the end of year 3).

The existing machine was purchased two years ago for $90,000 (including installation). It is being depreciated using a 3 year MACRS recovery schedule. It can be sold today for $20,000. It can be used for three more years, but after three more years it will have no market value.

The earnings before taxes and depreciation are as follows:

New machine: Year 1: 133,000, Year 2: 96,000, Year 3: 127,000

Existing machine: Year 1: 84,000, Year 2: 70,000, Year 3: 74,000

Burton pays 40 percent taxes on ordinary income and capital gains, and uses a WACC of 14%.

The maximum payback period allowed is 3 years.

They expect a large increase in sales so their Net Working Capital will increase by $20,000.

a) Calculate the initial investment required for this project.

b) Determine the incremental after-tax operating cash flows

c) Find the terminal cash flow for the project

d) Find the Payback period, NPV, IRR, and MIRR.
