XYZ is considering a project that will require \$28,000 in net working capital and \$87,000 in fixed assets. The project is expected to produce annual sales of \$75,000 with associated costs of \$57,000. The project has a 5-year life. The company uses straight-line depreciation to a zero book value over the life of the project. The tax rate is 30 percent. What is the operating cash flow for this project? OCF = net income + depr

(Sales-cost) * (1-T) + depreciation * T
OCF = (Sales – Costs)(1 – tC) + tCDepreciation
OCF = 75000-57000)(1 – 0.3) + 0.3(\$115,000/5)
= 18000*.7 = 12600 + 6900
=19500

XYZ is expanding and expects operating cash flows of \$26,000 a year for 4 years as a result. This expansion requires \$39,000 in new fixed assets. These assets will be worthless at the end of the project. In addition, the project requires \$3,000 of net working capital throughout the life of the project. What is the net present value of this expansion project at a required rate of return of 16 percent?

NPV=PV(inflow)-PV(outflow)
so.
i have 26,000 cuz thats how much they make every year. and i got 42,000 from the initial 39,000 asset that we cant sell and adding 3000 of the first year of NWC

26,000/(1+.16)^1 + 26,000/(1+.16)^2 + 26,000/(1+.16)^3 + 26,000/(1+.16)^4 - 42,000/(1.16)^1 + 3000/(1+.16)^2 + 3000/(1+.16)^3 + 3000/(1+.16)^4 22413.7931 + 19322.23543 + 16655.98975+ 14364.64 = 72756.65568 36206.89655+2229.4887+1921.845+1656.54 = 42014.77
