Dunay Corporation is considering investing $905,000 in a project. The life of the project would be 9 years. The project would require additional working capital of $38,000, which would be released for use elsewhere at the end of the project. The annual net cash inflows would be $186,000. The salvage value of the assets used in the project would be $48,000. The company uses a discount rate of 17%. (Ignore income taxes.)
