The Chung Chemical Corporation is considering the purchase of a chemical analysis machine. Although the machine being considered will result in an increase in earnings before interest and taxes of $40,000 per year, it has a purchase price of $140,000, and it would cost an additional $5,000 to properly install the machine. In addition, to properly operate the machine, inventory must be increased by $7,000. This machine has an expected life of 10 years, after which it will have no salvage value. Also, assume simplified straight-line depreciation and that this machine is being depreciated down to zero, a 31% marginal tax rate, and a required rate of return of 13%.

a. What is the initial outlay associated with this project?

b. What are the annual after-tax cash flows associated with this project for years 1 through 9?

c. What is the terminal cash flow in year 10 (what is the annual after-tax cash flow in year 10 plus any additional cash flows associated with the termination of the project)?

d. Should this machine be purchased?
