Archer Daniels Midland Company is considering buying a new farm that it plans to operate for 10 years. The farm will require an initial investment of $11.80 million. This investment will consist of $2.90 million for land and $8.90 million for trucks and other equipment. The land, all trucks, and all other equipment is expected to be sold at the end of 10 years at a price of $5.02 million, $2.35 million above book value. The farm is expected to produce revenue of $2.02 million each year, and annual cash flow from operations equals $1.92 million. The marginal tax rate is 35 percent, and the appropriate discount rate is 10 percent.
