Net working capital will be 20% of the pretax revenue for the year. Net working capital will be fully recovered at the end of the project. Revenues and operating costs will occur at the end of the year and investment in net working capital will be made at the beginning of the year. The tax rate is 40% and the discount rate is 12%.

b. Now compute the project's NPV assuming the project is abandoned after one year. The equipment will be salvaged for $8,000,000. Any gain or loss due to selling the equipment for other than the book value will create taxable gain/loss.
