The Everly Equipment Company’s flange-lipping machine was purchased 5 years ago for $100,000. It had an expected life of 10 years when it was bought and its remaining depreciation is $10,000 per year for each year of its remaining life. As older flange-lippers are robust and useful machines, this one can be sold for $20,000 at the end of its useful life.
A new high-efficiency digital-controlled flange-lipper can be purchased for $150,000, including installation costs. During its 5-year life, it will reduce cash operating expenses by $55,000 per year, although it will not affect sales. At the end of its useful life, the high-efficiency machine is estimated to be worthless. MACRS depreciation will be used, and the machine will be depreciated over its 3-year class life rather than its 5-year economic life, so the applicable depreciation rates are 33.33%, 44.45%, 14.81%, and 7.41%.
The old machine can be sold today for $50,000. The firm’s tax rate is 35%, and the appropriate cost of capital is 14%.
