H. Cochran, Inc., is considering a new three-year expansion project that requires an initial fixed asset investment of $2,340,000. The fixed asset will be depreciated straight-line to zero over its three-year tax life, after which time it will be worthless. The project is estimated to generate $2,230,000 in annual sales, with costs of $1,220,000. Assume the tax rate is 40 percent and the required return on the project is 9 percent.
What is the project’s NPV?
