A firm is planning a new project:

(1) This project costs $1,400,000 to purchase fixed assets, and $50,000 for shipping & installation fee.

(2) The life of this project is 5 years. The salvage value of fixed assets is 20% of the gross fixed assets (including shipping & installation fee).

(3) The working capital needed is $35,000 in 2017, and it is expected to increase 4% each year thereafter.

(4) This project can produce 180,000 units in 2017, and the production is expected to grow 5% each year. The current unit price is $7, and the cost of each unit is $4.5.

(5) The inflation rate is 2.2% each year. The firm will adjust both the unit price and the variable cost of each unit based on the inflation rate.

(6) The firm uses the 5-year straight-line depreciation policy for its fixed assets, and it is in the 28% tax bracket.

(7) The cost of capital for the firm is 10%.


A)   Calculate the initial outlay, annual after-tax cash flows, and terminal cash flow for this project.
