You estimate the sales price of The Tiff-any to be $490 per unit and sales volume to be 1,200 units in year 1; 1,125 units in year 2; and 1,000 units in year 3. The project has a 3-year life. Variable costs amount to $270 per unit and fixed costs are $100,000 per year.

The actual market value of these assets at the end of year 3 is expected to be $26,000. NWC requirements at the beginning of each year will be approximately 30 percent of the projected sales during the coming year.
