The Main Equipment Required Is A Commercial Food Processor Which Costs 200 000 The S 2846505

The main equipment required is a commercial food processor which costs $200,000. The shipping and installation cost of the processor from China is $50,000. The processor will be depreciated under the MACRS system using the applicable depreciation rates are 33%, 45%, 15%, and 7% respectively. Production is estimated to last for three years, and the company will exit the market before intense competition sets in and erodes profits. The market value of the processor is expected to be $100,000 after three years. Net working capital of $2,000 is required at the start, which will be recovered at the end of the project. The juice will be packaged in 20 oz. containers that sell for $3.00 each. The company expects to sell 150,000 units per year; cost of goods sold is expected to total 70% of dollar sales. Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC):Exotic Food’s common stock is currently listed at $75 per share; new preferred stock sells for $80 per share and pays a dividend of $5.00. Last year, the company paid dividends of $2.00 per share for common stock, which is expected to grow at a constant rate of 10%. The local bank is willing to finance the project at 10.5% annual interest. The company’s marginal tax rate is 35%, and the optimum target capital structure is:Common equity 50%Preferred 20%Debt 30%Your main task is to compute and evaluate the cash flows using capital budgeting techniques, analyze the results, and present your recommendations whether the company should take on the project. To help in the analysis, answer all the following questions:1. What is the total investment amount at the start of the project (i.e., year zero cash flow)?2. What is the depreciation amount for each year? ? Create a depreciation schedule3. What is the after-tax salvage value of the equipment?4. What is the projected net income and Operating Cash Flows (OCF) for the three years? ? Complete an income statement for each year.5. What are the Free Cash Flows (FCF) generated from the project? ? Create a projected cash flow schedule6. What is the Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)? ? Compute the after-tax cost of debt ? Compute the cost of common equity ? Compute the cost of preferred stock ? Compute the Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)7. Using a WACC of 15%, apply four capital budgeting techniques to evaluate the project, assuming the Free Cash Flows are as follows:Years Free Cash Flows 0 $ -252,000.001 $118,625.002 $127,125.003 $181,000.00The four techniques are NPV, IRR, MIRR, and discounted Payback. Assume the reinvestment rate to be 8% for the MIRR. Also, assume that the business will only accept projects with a payback period of two and half years or less.
