Question 1 (Total: 40 marks)
Kuno Berhad has a branch that manufactures and sells solar panels. Demand for
solar panels has picked up recently and the company is looking to increase its
output. Kuno Berhad branch currently manufactures 600,000 solar panels annually
and is looking to double this capacity. A new plant and machinery has become
available at an annual rent that would cost RM1.8 million, payable immediately on 1
January 2014. This new plant and machinery would have a useful life of 10 years
and would be depreciated on a straight-line basis with no residual value. The
directors of Kuno Berhad are now wondering whether they should go ahead with the
new solar panel factory. They have produced the following projections upon which to
base their forecasts.
