( because sales are expected to fall in the fifth year of sales, there is no NWC for that year). Total fixed costs are $ 175,000 per year, variable production costs are $227 per unit, and the units are priced at $360 each. The equipmnet needed to begin production is $ 13.2 million.

Assume at the end of year 5 this equipment can be sold for its scrap value of $1 million. To promote the Arts,the government is offering a non-taxable cash grant of $500,000 payable a year aftter the project has been started.
