Consider a project to supply 60,800,000 postage stamps to the U.S. Postal Service for the next 5 years. You have an idle parcel of land available that cost $760,000 five years ago; if the land were sold today, it would net you $912,000, aftertax. The land can be sold for $1,500,000 after taxes in 5 years. You will need to install $2,356,000 in new manufacturing plant and equipment to actually produce the stamps; this plant and equipment will be depreciated straight-line to zero over the project’s 5-year life. The equipment can be sold for $456,000 at the end of the project. You will also need $469,000 in initial net working capital for the project, and an additional investment of $38,000 in every year thereafter. All net working capital will be recovered when the project ends. Your production costs are 0.38 cents per stamp, and you have fixed costs of $608,000 per year. Your tax rate is 31 percent and your required return on this project is 11 percent. What bid price per stamp should you submit? ,
