BBQ Beach corporation manufactures inflatable air-matresses and life jackets for summer fun. the firm is considering replacement of their existing production line (CCA Class 8, d=20%) to reduce operating costs by $200,000 annually. Revenues are expected to rise by $100,000 per year, which will increase accounts receivable which are 15% of revenues. The new purchase line will cost $900,000 and will have a salvage value of $240,000 in seven years, when the company will reassess the viability of the business. The old equipment is worth $70,000 today and will be worth nothing in seven years.
If BBQ Beach has a tax rate, t=35%, and its opportunity cost of capital is 12%, then should the company replace the equipment? please draw a timeline.
