1. Lawson Inc.

is expanding its manufacturing plant, which requires an investment of P4,000,000 in

new equipment and plant modifications. Lawson’s sales are expected to increase by P3,000,000
per year as a result of the expansion. Cash investment in current assets averages 30% of sales;

2. Olson industries needs to add a small plant to accommodate a special contract to supply
building materials over a five-year period. The required initial cash outlays at time 0 are as
Land = 500,000
New building = 2,000,000
Equipment = 3,000,000

Olson uses straight-line depreciation for tax purposes and will depreciate the building over 10
years and the equipment over 5 years. Olson’s effective tax rate is 40%

Revenues from the special contract are estimated at P 1.2 million annually, and cash expenses
are estimated at P300,000 annually. At the end of the fifth year, the assumed sales values of the
land and building are P800,000 and P500,000, respectively (not considered in depreciation
calculations, rule when silent). It is further assumed the equipment will be removed at a cost of
P50,000 and sold for P300,000.

9. Rising Moon Corporation wishes to replace its vendo machine (book balue: P50,000), which
recently broke down. This replacement is intended to avoid future breakdowns as well as
increase revenues owing to its larger shelf size. The purchase price of the vendo machine is
P250,000. Delivery costs and insurance during the transit amount to a total of P5,000. The old
vendo machine could be sold to a scrap shop for P35,000. Should the new machine be
purchased, repairs amounting to P20,000 to fix the old machine after the recent breakdown
could be avoided. However, because of the larger shelf size of the new machine, an additional
working capital of P25,000 will be needed.
