We are evaluating a project that costs $832,000, has an eight-year life, and has no salvage value. Assume that depreciation is straight-line to zero over the life of the project. Sales are projected at 40,000 units per year. Price per unit is $40, variable cost per unit is $15, and fixed costs are $700,000 per year. The tax rate is 35 percent, and we require a return of 18 percent on this project.
