WWT is considering replacing a $5 million piece of equipment. The project will generate pretax savings of
$1,500,000 per year, and not change the risk level of the firm. The initial expense will be depreciated straight-line to zero salvage value over 5 years; the pretax salvage value in year 5 will be $500,000. The firm can obtain a 5-year $3,000,000 loan at 12.5% to partially finance the project. If the project were financed with all equity, the cost of capital would be 18%. The corporate tax rate is 34%, and the risk-free rate is 4%. The project will require a $100,000 investment in net working capital. Calculate the APV.
