CF Estimation. Stanton Inc. is considering the purchase of a new machine which will increase earnings before depreciation and taxes by $6,000 annually. Stanton will use the straightline method to depreciate the machine to zero, and it expects to sell the machine at the end of its 5-year operating life for $10,000 before taxes. Stanton’s marginal tax rate is 40%, and it uses 9% cost of capital to evaluate projects of this type. If the net cost of the machine is $40,000, what is the project’s NPV? Hint: depreciation is $8,000 per year.
