Chapter 7: Net Present Value and Capital Budgeting

7.1 a. Yes, the reduction in the sales of the companys other products, referred to as erosion, should be
treated as an incremental cash flow. These lost sales are included because they are a cost (a
revenue reduction) that the firm must bear if it chooses to produce the new product.
b. Yes, expenditures on plant and equipment should be treated as incremental cash flows. These are
costs of the new product line. owever, if these expenditures have already occurred, they are
sunk costs and are not included as incremental cash flows.
c. No, the research and development costs should not be treated as incremental cash flows. The
costs of research and development underta!en on the product durin" the past # years are sunk
costs and should not be included in the evaluation of the pro$ect. %ecisions made and costs
incurred in the past cannot be chan"ed. They should not affect the decision to accept or re$ect the
pro$ect.
d. Yes, the annual depreciation expense should be treated as an incremental cash flow. %epreciation
expense must be ta!en into account when calculatin" the cash flows related to a "iven pro$ect.
&hile depreciation is not a cash expense that directly affects cash flow, it decreases a firms net
income and hence, lowers its tax bill for the year. 'ecause of this depreciation tax shield, the
firm has more cash on hand at the end of the year than it would have had without expensin"
depreciation.
e. No, dividend payments should not be treated as incremental cash flows. ( firms decision to pay
or not pay dividends is independent of the decision to accept or re$ect any "iven investment
pro$ect. )or this reason, it is not an incremental cash flow to a "iven pro$ect. %ividend policy is
discussed in more detail in later chapters.
f. Yes, the resale value of plant and equipment at the end of a pro$ects life should be treated as an
incremental cash flow. The price at which the firm sells the equipment is a cash inflow, and any
difference between the boo! value of the equipment and its sale price will create "ains or losses
that result in either a tax credit or liability.
". Yes, salary and medical costs for production employees hired for a pro$ect should be treated as
incremental cash flows. The salaries of all personnel connected to the pro$ect must be included as
costs of that pro$ect.
7.* +tem + is a relevant cost because the opportunity to sell the land is lost if the new "olf club is produced.
+tem ++ is also relevant because the firm must ta!e into account the erosion of sales of existin" products
when a new product is introduced. +f the firm produces the new club, the earnin"s from the existin" clubs
will decrease, effectively creatin" a cost that must be included in the decision. +tem +++ is not relevant
because the costs of ,esearch and %evelopment are sun! costs. %ecisions made in the past cannot be
chan"ed. They are not relevant to the production of the new clubs. Choice C is the correct answer.

The second lease payment represents the first cash flow of a "rowin" annuity. 2ince lease payments
increase by three percent each year, the amount of the second payment is the amount of the first payment
multiplied by 1.0#, ad$usted for taxes, or -0(13 0.<<)(1.0#). ,ecall that the appropriate discount rate is 1*
percent, the "rowth rate is three percent, and that the annuity consists of only 1> payments, since the first of

7.## Flious needs to compare the equivalent annual cost (C(-) of the new machine to the cost incurred by
!eepin" the old autoclave one additional year. )irst, find the C(- of the new autoclave. =ext, find the
total one3year cost, includin" the opportunity cost of not sellin" the old autoclave at the be"innin" of that
particular year. +f the C(- of the new autoclave is hi"her than the one3year total cost of !eepin" the
existin" autoclave, then Flious should not replace the old machine. +f the total one3year cost of the existin"
autoclave is hi"her than the C(- of the new machine, Flious should replace.
The first step of the problem is to calculate the =?@ of the new machine. The initial investment is not
discounted because it occurs today (year 0).
