The managerial accountant at Insider Technology Organization, a medical imaging company, considers the purchase of a new machine to increase the efficiency in the image division. The existing machine is operable for 4 more years and it will have a disposal price of $0. If the current machine is sold now it will be worth $75,000. The cost of the new machine is $250,000 and an additional cash investment of working capital of $25,000 is needed.

The manager expects the new machine to reduce the time needed to take each image, and it will improve the green energy environmental initiatives because it is more efficient. The new machine is expected to net $50,000 in additional cash inflows during the year of acquisition and $75,000 each additional year of use.

The new machine has a five-year life and $0 disposal value. The cash flows will be recognized at the end of each year. The income taxes are not considered, and the investment in working capital is not expected to be recovered at the end of the machine's useful years.

A) ($21,116); No.
B) ($42,184); No.

B
Explanation:  B) No, the manager would not want to purchase the machine, ($42,184.08).
Note: [Year 0 (Working Capital - Cost of New Machine - Additional Investment) × 1.00]
Year 0 = [($75,000 - $250,000 - $25,000) × (1.00) =    ($200,000)
Year 1 = $50,000 × ($1.00 /$1.12 = $0.8929) =    $44,642.86
Year 2 = $75,000 × ($0.8929 / $1.12 = $0.7972) =    $59,789.54
Year 3 = $75,000 × ($0.7972 / $1.12 = $0.7118) =    $53,383.52
    ($42,184.08),    or ($42,184)
