Differential Analysis Involving Opportunity Costs
On July 1, Coastal Distribution Company is considering leasing a building and buying the necessary equipment to operate a public warehouse. Alternatively, the company could use the funds to invest in $740,000 of 5% U.S. Treasury bonds that mature in 14 years. The bonds could be purchased at face value. The following data have been assembled:
|Cost of store equipment||$740,000|
|Life of store equipment||14 years|
|Estimated residual value of store equipment||$75,000|
|Yearly costs to operate the warehouse, excluding|
|depreciation of store equipment||$175,000|
|Yearly expected revenues—years 1-7||$280,000|
|Yearly expected revenues—years 8-14||$240,000|
1. Prepare a differential analysis as of July 1 presenting the proposed operation of the warehouse for the 14 years (Alternative 1) as compared with investing in U.S. Treasury bonds (Alternative 2). If an amount is zero, enter “0”. For those boxes in which you must enter subtracted or negative numbers use a minus sign.
