**Question description**

MUST BE ORIGINAL AND ALSO WILL NOT CONSIDER ANYONE WITHOUT FEEDBACK AND WILL NOT CONSIDER ANYONE THAT CANT MEET THE TIME LINE WHICH IS 1 DAY FROM THE TIME I PAY. ALSO WILL CONSIDER THOSE WITH LOWEST DOWNPAYMENT FIRST

A manufacturing company is thinking of launching a new product. The company expects to sell $950,000 of the new product in the first year and $1,500,000 each year thereafter. Direct costs including labor and materials will be 45% of sales. Indirect incremental costs are estimated at $95,000 a year. The project requires a new plant that will cost a total of $1,500,000, which will be a depreciated straight line over the next 5 years. The new line will also require an additional net investment in inventory and receivables in the amount of $200,000.

Assume there is no need for additional investment in building the land for the project. The firm's marginal tax rate is 35%, and its cost of capital is 10%.
