3.1 Perform a scenario analysis on the data provided
Case Study: Assume that the company, where you are working as a team in Financial
Department, is considering a potential project with a new product that is expected to sell for
an average price of $22 per unit and the company expects it can sell 650 000 unit per year at
this price for a period of 4 years. Launching this project will require purchase of a $3 500 000
equipment that has residual value in four years of $500 000 and adding $ 850 000 in working
capital which is expected to be fully retrieved at the end of the project. Other information is

Depreciation method: straight line
Variable cost per unit: $17
Cash fixed costs per year: $450 000
