Lombard company is contemplating the purchase of a new​ high-speed

  

Lombard Company is contemplating the purchase of a new​ high-speed widget grinder to replace the existing grinder. The existing grinder was purchased 2 years ago at an installed cost of $55,300​; it was being depreciated​ straight-line for 5 years. The existing grinder is expected to have a usable life of 5 more years. The new grinder costs $105,800 and requires $4,500 in installation​ costs; it has a​ 5-year usable life andwould be depreciated on a​ straight-line basis. Lombard can currently sell the existing grinder for $70,900 without incurring any removal or cleanup costs. To support the increased business resulting from purchase of the new​ grinder, accounts receivable would increase by $40,400​, inventories by $29,000​, and accounts payable by $57,600. At the end of 5​ years, the existing grinder would have a market value of​ zero; the new grinder would be sold to net $29,200 after removal and cleanup costs and before taxes. The firm is subject a 40% tax rate. The estimated earnings before​ depreciation, interest, and taxes over the 5 years for both the new and the existing grinder are shown in the following table

        Year New grinder  Existing grinder   1 $43,600  $25,200   2 43600  23200   3 43600  21200   4 43600  19200   5 43600  17200
