We are examining a new project. We expect to sell 5,600 units per year at \$70 net cash flow apiece for the next 10 years. In other words, the annual operating cash flow is projected to be \$70 × 5,600 = \$392,000. The relevant discount rate is 18 percent, and the initial investment required is \$1,550,000. After the first year, the project can be dismantled and sold for \$1,270,000. Suppose you think it is likely that expected sales will be revised upward to 8,600 units if the first year is a success and revised downward to 4,200 units if the first year is not a success. If success and failure are equally likely, what is the NPV of the project? Consider the possibility of abandonment in answering. What is the value of the option to abandon?
