Shrieves Casting Company

a. Define “incremental cash flow.” Incremental cash flows are the difference between the cash flows the firm will have if it implements the projects minus the cash flows it will have if it rejects the project. (426)
Incremental cash flows = Company’s cash flows - Company’s cash flows with the project without the project

(1.) Should you subtract interest expense or dividends when calculating project cash flow? No, you should not subtract interest expenses when finding a project’s cash flow. This is a mistake because the cost of debt is already embedded in the cost of capital, so subtracting interest payments from the project’s cash flows would amount to double counting interest costs. [426]

(2.) Suppose the firm had spent $100,000 last year to rehabilitate the production line site. Should this be included in the analysis? Explain. No, this is a sunk cost. This cost incurred in the past, is irreversible, and cannot be affected by the decision to accept or reject a project and therefore should be ignored. This cost cannot be recovered in the future regardless of whether or not a project is accepted. [427] (3.) Now assume that the plant space could be leased out to another firm at $25,000 per year. Should this be included in the analysis? If so, how? Yes, by accepting the project, the Shrieves Casting Company foregoes a possible annual cash flow of $25,000, which is an opportunity cost to be charged to the project. [427] The relevant cash flow is the annual after-tax opportunity cost as follows:

A-T opportunity cost = $25,000 (1 – T) = $25,000 (0.4) =

    1.0 Calculations 1.1 Sizing of component (including Shrinkage allowance) When cooling from molten state, all metals decrease in volume. When cold, casting will be smaller than their pattern. In order for parts to be of correct size, patterns are made larger to allow shrinkage. The extra size is called Shrinkage Allowance. Different metals have different Shrinkage Allowances. For the purpose of our project, we have been using Brass having shrinkage allowance of 1.5%. Length Nominal…

    Q. Do you think Kappmeyer should sign the proposal? Why or why not? Ans. I think Kappmeyer should not sign the proposal.

    Introduction A sand casting or a sand molded casting is a cast part produced by forming a mold from a sand mixture and pouring molten liquid metal into the cavity in the mold. The mold is then cooled until the metal has solidified. In the last stage the casting is separated from the mold. There are six steps in this process: (see sketch below): 1. Place a pattern in sand to create a mold. 2. Incorporate a gating system. 3. Remove the pattern. 4. Fill the mold cavity with molten metal…
