P r oject E v aluation. Ilana Industries, Inc., needs a new lathe. It can buy a new high-speed lathe for $1 million. The lathe will cost $35,000 to run, will save the firm $125,000 in labor costs, and will be useful for 10 years. Suppose that for tax purposes, the lathe will be de- preciated on a straight-line basis over its 10-year life to a salvage value of $100,000. The ac- tual market value of the lathe at that time also will be $100,000. The discount rate is 10 per-
cent and the corporate tax rate is 35 percent. What is the NPV of buying the new lathe?
