LINDA The Cornchopper Company is considering the purchase

This answer was rated:


The Cornchopper Company is considering the purchase of a new harvester. The break-even purchase price is the price at which the project’s NPV is zero. Consider the following facts:

The new harvester is not expected to affect revenues, but pretax operating expenses will be reduced by $18,900 per year for 10 years.

The old harvester is now 5 years old, with 10 years of its scheduled life remaining. It was originally purchased for $48,450 and has been depreciated by the straight-line method.
• The old harvester can be sold for $17,100 today.

The new harvester will be depreciated by the straight-line method over its 10-year life.
• The corporate tax rate is 33 percent.
• The firm’s required rate of return is 10 percent.

The initial investment, the proceeds from selling the old harvester, and any resulting tax effects occur immediately.
• All other cash flows occur at year-end.
• The market value of each harvester at the end of its economic life is zero.


Determine the break-even purchase price in terms of present value of the harvester.
