BPA Corporation is considering the purchase of a new electronic painting equipment to replace the existing equipment that has a book value of 3,000 and can be sold for 1,500. The old equipment is being depreciated on a straight line basis and its estimated salvage value 3 years from now is zero. The new equipment will reduce costs (before taxes) by 7,000/year. The new equipment has a 3-year life, it costs 14,000 and it can be sold for an expected 2,000 at the end of the third year. The new equipment would be depreciated over its 3-year life using the MACRS method. BPA’s cost of capital is 16 percent and its tax rate is 40 percent
