The Saucer Pasta Company Limited (SPCL) is specialized in making wide range of
pastas. It has recently spent Rs.30,000 on market research and found that the demand of
pasta is increasing in the market. That is why company has decided to acquire new
machinery for increasing its production capacity. This machinery will cost Rs.50,000,
however, it will enable the company to increase its sales by Rs.60,000 per year for the
next 5 years. Variable cost before taxes will be Rs.20,000 in first year and expected to
increase by 10% per year afterwards. At the end of fifth year, it is projected that
machinery will no more be operational and its salvage value before taxes will be Rs.2,000.
Company has to pay 30% as corporate tax and it is assumed that taxes will be paid in the
same year of cash flow occurring. If the machinery is acquired, depreciation for tax
reporting purposes would be based on straight line method over its useful life. Company’s
cost of capital will be 10%.
Based upon above given information, calculate NPV to determine whether SPCL should
acquire this machinery or not.

Asif bhai thora sa idea dain koi formula ya kuch hints wagira dain day.

Helping material:

  An initial investment of $8,320 thousand on plant and machinery is expected to generate cash inflows of $3,411 thousand, $4,070 thousand, $5,824 thousand and $2,065 thousand at the end of first, second, third and fourth year respectively. At the end of the fourth year, the machinery will be sold for $900 thousand. Calculate the net present value of the investment if the discount rate is 18%. Round your answer to nearest thousand dollars.


PV Factors:
Year 1 = 1 ÷ (1 + 18%)^1 ≈ 0.8475
Year 2 = 1 ÷ (1 + 18%)^2 ≈ 0.7182
Year 3 = 1 ÷ (1 + 18%)^3 ≈ 0.6086
Year 4 = 1 ÷ (1 + 18%)^4 ≈ 0.5158

The rest of the calculation is summarized below:

Year 1 2 3 4
Net Cash Inflow $3,411 $4,070 $5,824 $2,065
Salvage Value 900
Total Cash Inflow $3,411 $4,070 $5,824 $2,965
× Present Value Factor 0.8475 0.7182 0.6086 0.5158
Present Value of Cash Flows $2,890.68 $2,923.01 $3,544.67 $1,529.31
Total PV of Cash Inflows $10,888
− Initial Investment − 8,320
Net Present Value $2,568 thousand
