PolyCorp is considering an investment in new plant of $3 million.  The project will be financed with a loan of $2,000,000 which will be repaid over the next five years in equal annual end of year instalments at a rate if 8.5 percent pa.  Assume straight-line depreciation over a five-year life, and no taxes. The projects cash flows before loan repayments and interest are shown in the table below. Cost of capital is 14% pa. A salvage value of $200,000 is included in the cash flow for year five. Polycorp paid $200,000 for a feasibility study on the project about a year ago.
