Problem: We are calculating a project which costs $1,675,000, has a 6-year life, and has no salvage value. Suppose that depreciation is straight-line to zero over the life of project. Sales are projected at 91,000 units each year. Price per unit is $35.95, variable cost per unit is $21.40, and fixed costs are $775,000 each year. The tax rate is 35 percent, and we need a return of 11 percent on this project.
problem1. Compute the base-case cash flow and NPV
problem2. What is sensitivity of NPV to changes in sales figure?
problem3. If there is a 500-unit lessens in projected sales, how much would NPV drop?
problem4. What is sensitivity of OCF to changes in variable cost figure?
problem5. If there is a $1 reduces in estimated variable costs, how much would the raise in OCF be?
