You are required to submit a bid to supply 200,000,000 widgets per year to the State of Illinois for the next five years. Your company has an idle tract of real estate that cost $1,500,000 ten years ago; if your company sold the land today, it would generate $3,000,000 after the taxes were paid. The land can be sold for $3,500,000 after taxes in five years. You will need to install $4,900,000 in new plant and equipment to actually produce the widgets; this plant and equipment will be depreciated straight-line to zero over the projects five year life. The equipment can be sold for $610,000 at the end of the project. You will need $500,000 in initial working capital for the project, and an additional investment of $60,000 in every year thereafter. Your production costs are .6 cents per widget and you will have fixed costs of $800,000 per year. If your tax rate is 34% and your required return is 14%, what bid price per widget should you submit?
