Focus of the Final ProjectRead the Mini Case from the end of Chapter 11 about Caledonia Products and thoroughly respond to Parts a to n at the end of the case. Your paper should answer all of the questions of the Mini Case (without repeating the questions), as a concise management statement in six to eight pages. Where appropriate, properly cite the text or any other source. For questions requiring calculations, use formulas in Excel to calculate the ratios and format the cells to insert a comma if there are more than three numbers. Submit your work as a separate Excel document, in addition to your analysis. Round dollar amounts to the nearest whole number and percentages to two decimal places as a percentage. Clearly label your analysis and the sum of your conclusions for all parts of the case.MINI CASE:We are considering the introduction of a new product. Currently we are in the 34% marginal tax bracket with a 15% required rate of return or cost of capital. This project is expected to last 5 years and then, because this is somewhat of a fad project, be terminated. The following information describes the new projectCost of a new plant and equipment $7,900,000Shipping and installation cost $100,000Year Units Sold1 70,0002 120,0003 140,0004 80,0005 60,000Sales price per unit $300/unit in years 1 through 4, $260/unit in year 5Variable cost per unit $180/unitAnnual fixed costs $200,000Working-capital requirements:There will be an initial working-capital requirement of $100,000 just to get production stared. For each year, the total investment in net working capital will be equal to 10% of the dollar value of sales for that year. Thus, the investment in working capital will increase during years 1 through 3, the decrease in year 4. Finally, all working capital is liquidated at the termination of the project at the end of year 5.The depreciation method.Use the simplified straight-line method over 5 years. Assume that the plant and equipment will have no salvage after 5 years.A. Should the company focus on cash flows or accounting profits in making its capital-budgeting decisions? Should the company be interested in incremental cash flows, incremental profits, total free cash flows, or total profits?B. How does depreciation affect free cash flows?C. How do sunk costs affect the determination of cash flows?D. What is the projects initial outlay?E. What are the differential cash flows over the projects life?F. What is the terminal cash flow?G. Draw a cash flow diagram for this project?H. What is its net present value?I. What is its internal rate of return?J. Should the project be accepted? Why or why not?K. In capital budgeting, risk can be measured from three perspectives. What are those three measures of a projects risk?L. According to CAPM, which measurements of a projects risk is relevant? What complications does reality introduce into the CAPM view of risk, and what does that mean for our view of the relevant measure of a projects risk?M. Explain how simulation works. What is the value in using a simulation approach?N. What is sensitivity analysis and what is its purpose
