CAPITAL BUDGETING MANAGEMENT

 

Fall 2015

 

HOMEWORK #9

 

You are considering starting your own small business. The venture will incorporated in the state of New

 

Jersey. Therefore, you will pay taxes according to the normal Federal corporate tax schedule (shown in

 

Handout #6), and also according to the New Jersey state corporate tax schedule (given below). You would

 

place the plant on a piece of property that you already own. Today you could probably sell this property

 

for $115,000 (net of any capital gain tax effects).

 

For the venture you will need to build a plant that will cost you $1,450,000. This building will be

 

depreciated by the fifteen-year MACRS schedule. The initial machinery needed for the operation will cost

 

$450,000 and will be depreciated by the seven-year MACRS schedule. This equipment should have an

 

operating life of five years. At the end of this life you estimate that you could sell the machinery for

 

$105,000. You will then need to buy a second machine that will probably cost $475,000. This machine

 

will also be depreciated by seven-year MACRS schedule. You also expect this equipment to have an

 

operating life of five years, and at the end of this life, you estimate that you will be able to sell this second

 

machine for $107,000. At that point you will need to purchase a third machine, which will probably cost

 

$500,000. This will also be depreciated by the seven-year MACRS schedule, and should again have an

 

operating life of five years, and should have a value of $110,000. You will then need to purchase a fourth

 

machine that will probably cost $525,000, and will be depreciated by seven-year MACRS schedule. You

 

plan to operate this venture for nineteen years. At that point you will have to pay $150,000 to demolish

 

the plant. You will probably be able to sale the remaining machinery for $125,000.

 

You feel that sales will be $520,000 in the first year of operation. For the next six years you think that

 

sales will grow at 25% annually. For the following seven years you expect that sales will grow at 5% per

 

year. Then, you feel that annual sales will decline by 25% annually for the final five years of operation. In

 

the early life of the operation annual fixed costs should be $200,000, but as the plant get older, they will

 

probably rise. So you assume that fixed costs will go to $220,000 in the thirteenth year of operations.

 

Assume variable costs will be 24% of sales throughout the life of the plant.

 

You will probably need a stock of $67,000 of net working capital at the outset. Then net working capital

 

should be about 14% of sales throughout the life of the operation.

 

If you require a return of 20%, determine whether you should invest in this venture.
