- 3.Cerini need to find out the calculation of WACC (Weight Average Cost of Capital), because it will be compared with the new project’s fund should be spent.

WACC 0.03876*(0.33) 0.128*0.67 KM – KRF = Market risk premium (Assumed that the equity risk premium would be 6 percent) WACC 0.0986 9.86% βj = the company’s beta (1.25)
- 4.THE CapEx Next, after getting WACC, we should compared the difference cash flow between old ‘n new machine Capital expenditure = Additional cash needed to acquire the new machine. Capital expenditure = Cost of acquisition of the new machine-Resale value of the old machine - savings in tax. Savings in tax = Capital loss x Tax rate Capital loss = Resale value-book valueBook value = €415,000-€130,682 =€284,318.Capital loss = 130,000-284,318 =154,318Capital expenditure = 1,010,000-130,000-(0.43x 154,318)Capital expenditure = €813,643 The cost of capital of making a new machine (Vulcan Mold-Maker) which can be counted : WACC x €813,643 = 9.86 % x € 813,643 = € 80.225,2

- 6.OLD MACHINES VULCAN MOLD-MAKERDepreciation (D1) = € 47,520.00 Depreciation (D2) = € 1.01 million / 8 year = € 126,250.00 DIFFERENCE € 78,730.00 THE CASH FLOW DIFFERENCE Semi-automatic (Old Machines) Vulcan DifferenceSales S SCost C1 C2 € 232,090 .00Depreciation D1 D2 € 78,730.00EBIT (S-C1-D1) (S-C2-D2)Net Income (S-C1-D1)-((S-C1-D1)*T) (S-C2-D2)-((S-C2-D2)*T)Cash flow (S-C1)(1-T)+(D1xT) (S-C2)(1-T)+(D2xT) (C1-C2)(1-T)+(D1-D2)TT 43% (C1-C2)(1-T)+(D1-D2)T = [€ 232090][1-0.43]+[ € 78730][0.43] = € 166145.2 From the difference cash flow between semi-automatic and Vulcan we can see that the Fonderia may cover the cost of capital of making a new machine (Vulcan Mold-Maker) Because the cash flow still bigger than the cost of capital, Fonderia can build the Vulcan Mold-Maker. Because there are some profit as big as € 85.920 (€ 166145.2-€ 80.225,2)

- 9.Conclusion? Francesca Cerini is still havingprofit from the calculation above, and the new machine is having apositive cashflow compared to the old machine. Recommendation ? Francesca Cerini should proceed with buying the new machine to replace the old machine, because beside is increase the production capacity, is also generate positive cashflow from operation saving in the long run.
