9. Weir Inc. is considering the purchase of a new production machine for $100,000. Although the purchase of this machine will not produce any increase in sales revenues, it will result in a reduction of labor costs by $31,000 per year. The shipping cost is $7,000. In addition, it would cost $3,000 to install this machine properly. Also, because this machine is extremely efficient, its purchase would necessitate an increase in inventory if $25,000. This machine has an expected life of ten years, after which it will have no salvage value. Finally, to purchase the new machine it appears that the firm would have to borrow $60,000 at 10% from its local bank, resulting in additional interest payment of $6,000 per year. Assume simplified straight-line depreciation and that this machine is being depreciated down to zero, a 30% marginal tax rate, and a required rate of return of 12%.
a. what is the initial outlay associated with this project?
