currently produces boat sails and is considering expanding its operations
Jamestown Ltd. currently produces boat sails and is considering expanding its operations to include awnings for homes and travel trailers.
The company owns land beside its current manufacturing facility that could be used for the expansion.
The company bought this land ten years ago at a cost of $250,000. Today, the land is valued at $425,000.
The grading and excavation work necessary to build on the land will cost $15,000.
The company currently owns some unused equipment, valued at $60,000, which could be used for producing awnings if $5,000 is spent for equipment modifications. Other equipment, costing $780,000, will also be required. What is the amount of the initial cash flow for this expansion project?
