The original cost of the old machine was $75000; it is now 5 years old and it has a current market value of $35000. The old machine is being depreciated over a 10-year life toward a zero estimated salvage value on a straight-line basis resulting in a current book value of $37500 and an annual depreciation expense of $7500. The old machine can be used for 6 more years but has no market value after its depreciable life is over. Management is contemplating the purchase of a new machine whose cost is $80000 and whose estimated salvage value is zero. Expected before-tax cash savings from the new machine are $15000 a year over its full MACRS depreciable life. Depreciation is computed using MACRS over a 5-year life and the cost of capital is 15 percent. Assume a 40 percent tax rate.
