The Everly Equipment Company’s

Replacement Analysis The Everly Equipment Company’s flange-lipping machine was purchased 5 years ago for $90,000. It had an expected life of 10 years when it was bought and is being depreciated by the straight-line method by $9,000 per year. As the older flange-lippers are robust and useful machines, it can be sold for $20,000 at the end of its useful life. A new high-efficiency digital-controlled flange-lipper can be purchased for $130,000, including installation costs. During its 5-year life, it will reduce cash operating expenses by $50,000 per year, although it will not affect sales. At the end of its useful life, the high-efficiency machine is estimated to be worthless. MACRS depreciation will be used, and the machine will be depreciated over its 3-year class life rather than its 5-year economic life, so the applicable depreciation rates are 33.33%, 44.45%
