The estimated life of this new property, plant, and equipment will be 12 years. The salvage value of the equipment will be 5% of the property, plant and equipment’s cost.
The annual EBIT for this new project will be 18% of the project’s cost.
The company will use the straightline method to depreciate this equipment. Also assume that there will be no increases in net working capital each year. Use 35% as the tax rate in this project.
The hurdle rate for this project will be the WACC that you are able to find on a financial website, such as Gurufocus.com.
