Hank Energy's executive jet is not fully utilized.
Hank Energy's executive jet is not fully utilized. Hank judges that its use by other officers would increase direct operating costs by only $21,000 a year and would save $100,000 a year in airline bills. On the other hand, Hank believes that with the increased use the company will need to replace the jet at the end of three years rather than four. A new jet costs $1.11 million and (at its current low rate of use) has a life of seven years. Assume that the Hank Energy does not pay taxes. All cash flows are forecasted in real terms. The real opportunity cost of capital is 9%.
A. Calculate the equivalent annual cost of a new jet.
B. Calculate the present value of the additional cost of replacing the jet one year earlier than under its current usage
C. Calculate the present value of the savings.
D. Should you try to persuade the president to allow other officers to use the plane?
