Question - The Campbell Company is evaluating the acquisition of a new food machine. The base price of the equipment is $108,000 and it would cost another $12,500 for shipping and installation. The Campbell Company also paid $10,000 to an engineering firm to determine the feasibility of the new food machine. The machine falls in the MACRS 3 year class and would be sold after 4 years for $25,000. The new food line would require an increase in inventory of $5,500, which would be recovered at the end of the project. The machine is expected to generate an extra $44,000 per year in revenues, but have no effect on operating costs. Campbell's WACC is 10% and its marginal tax rate is 34%.
