Caine Bottling 200000

Price: $1.99

Caine Bottling Corporation is considering the purchase of a new bottling machine.
The machine would cost $200,000 and has an estimated useful life of 8 years with
zero salvage value. Management estimates that the new bottling machine will provide net
annual cash flows of $34,000. Management also believes that the new bottling machine
will save the company money because it is expected to be more reliable than other machines,
and thus will reduce downtime. How much would the reduction in downtime have
to be worth in order for the project to be acceptable? Assume a discount rate of 9%. (Hint:
Calculate the net present value.)
