4. Relevant Cash Flows. Winnebagel Corp. currently sells 28, 000 motor homes per year at $73, 000 each and 7,000 luxury motor coaches per year at $115,000 each. The company wants to introduce a new portable camper to fill its product line; it hopes to sell 23,000 of these campers per year at $19,000 each. An independent consultant has determined that if Winnebagel introduces the new campers, it should boost the sales of its existing motor homes by 2,600 units per year and reduce the sales of its motor coaches by 850 units per year. What is the amount to use as the annual sales figure when evaluating this project? Why?
5. Calculating Project OCF. Herrera Music Company is considering the sale of a new sound board used in recording studios. The new board would sell for $25,000, and the company expects to sell 1,400 per year. The company currently sells 1,900 units of its existing model per year. If the new model is introduced, sales of the existing model will fall to 1,720 units per year. The old board retails for $21,400. Variable costs are 55 percent of sales, depreciation on the equipment to produce the new board will be $1,350,000 per year, and fixed costs are $1,250,000 per year. If the tax rate is 38 percent, what is the annual OCF for the project?
