The   Campbell Company is considering adding a robotic paint sprayer to its production   line. The sprayer’s base price is $1,000,000, and it would cost another   $16,000 to install it. The machine falls into the MACRS 3-year class (the   applicable MACRS depreciation rates are 33.33%, 44.45%, 14.81%, and 7.41%),   and it would be sold after 3 years for $630,000. The machine would require an   increase in net working capital (inventory) of $9,000. The sprayer would not   change revenues, but it is expected to save the firm $419,000 per year in   before-tax operating costs, mainly labor. Campbell’s marginal tax rate is   30%.
