The machine will cost \$300,000 plus another \$12,000 for installation. The new asset will be depreciated using a a modified accelerated cost recovery system (MACRS) 5-year class life. It will be sold for \$25,000 at the end of 5 years. Additional inventory of \$11,000 will be required for parts and maintenance of the new machine. The company evaluates all projects at this risk level using an 11.99% required rate of return. The tax rate is expected to be 35% for the next decade.
