Margerit is reviewing a project with projected sales of 1,500 units a year, an after-tax cash flow of $40 a unit and a three-year project life. The initial6st olthe project is $95,000. The relevant discount rate is 75o/o.Margerit has the option to abandon the project after one year at which time she feels she could sell the project for $60,000. If sales in units drop to 1000 per year in years 2 and 3 should Margerit abandon the project. For purposes of computing your answer assume that irrespective of the year in which they are produced each unit sold will generate an after-tax cash flow of $40 per unit. Show your work.
