Do not round intermediate calculations. Leave no cells blank – be certain to enter “0” wherever required. Indicate the effect of each variance by selecting “F” for favorable, “U” for unfavorable, and “None” for no effect (i.e., zero variance). Omit the “$” sign in your response.)

A company is considering purchasing an asset for $61,000 that would have a useful life of 10 years and would have a salvage value of $6,000. For tax purposes, the entire original cost of the asset would be depreciated over 10 years using the straight-line method and the salvage value would be ignored. The asset would generate annual net cash inflows of $37,000 throughout its useful life. The project would require additional working capital of $9,000, which would be released at the end of the project. The company’s tax rate is 40% and its discount rate is 13%.
