Unit sales will be constant, but the sales price should increase with inflation. Fixed costs will also be constant, but variable costs should rise with inflation. The project should last for 3 years, it will be depreciated on a straight-line basis, and there will be no salvage value. No change in net operating working capital would be required. This is just one of many projects for the firm, so any losses on this project can be used to offset gains on other firm projects. What is the project’s expected NPV?ÿDo not round the intermediate calculations and round the final answer to the nearest whole number.WACC10.0%Net investment cost (depreciable basis)\$200,000Units sold58,000Average price per unit, Year 1\$25.00Fixed op. cost excl. depr.
