4. Problem 12.06 Click here to read the eBook: Analysis of an Expansion Project DEPRECIATION METHODS Charlene is evaluating a capital budgeting project that should last for 4 years. The project requires 5525,000 of equipment. She is unsure what depreciation method to use in her analysis, straight-line or the 3-year MACRS accelerated method. Under straight-line depreciation, the cost of the equipment would be depreciated evenly over its 4-year life (ignore the half-year convention for the straight-line method). The applicable MACRS depreciation rates are 339, 45%, 15%, and 7%. The company's WACC is 10%, and its tax rate is 35%. a. What would the depreciation expense be each year under each method? Round your answers to the nearest cent. Year Scenario 1 (Straight-Line) Scenario 2 (MACRS) b. Which depreciation method would produce the higher NPV? -Select- How much higher would the NPV be under the preferred method? Round your answer to two decimal places. Do not round your intermediate calculations.
