Question

Camber Corporation has to decide if they can finance purchasing 10 new machines for all their manufacturing sites. The machines cost $1.73 million each, and the supplier agreed to the following payment terms, 40% upfront, and the remainder to be paid over 4 years at an annual rate of 12%.

- Executives at Camber Corporation review their budgets and discover that they can pay the supplier 40% now, but their budget will only allow them to pay $4,000,000 per year for the next four years.
