Problem 7-4A (Part Level Submission)

Last year (2013), Richter Condos installed a mechanized elevator for its tenants. The owner of the company, Ron Richter, recently returned from an industry equipment exhibition where he watched a computerized elevator demonstrated. He was impressed with the elevator's speed, comfort of ride, and cost efficiency. Upon returning from the exhibition, he asked his purchasing agent to collect price and operating cost data on the new elevator. In addition, he asked the company’s accountant to provide him with cost data on the company’s elevator. This information is presented below.
    Old Elevator   New Elevator  
Purchase price   $104,850     $160,381    
Estimated salvage value   0     0    
Estimated useful life   5 years     4 years    
Depreciation method   Straight-line     Straight-line    
Annual operating costs              
other than depreciation:              
Variable   $35,166     $10,450    
Fixed   22,891     8,151    

Annual revenues are $240,557, and selling and administrative expenses are $29,764, regardless of which elevator is used. If the old elevator is replaced now, at the beginning of 2014, Richter Condos will be able to sell it for $24,041.
