The projected sales for the new line of printers are 500 units a year. The sales price is \$300 per printer and the variable costs are 70% of sales price. Fixed costs are \$40,000 annually. The equipment required for producing the new line of printers costs \$100,000 (today) and will be depreciated down to zero over 20 years using straight-line depreciation. The equipment is sold for \$40,000 at the end of 10 years. Net working capital increases by \$20,000 at the beginning of the project (year 0) and it is reduced back to its original level in the final year.
