Operating cash flows: Expense reduction Biophore Corporation, an Indian pharmaceutical company, is considering replacing a labeling machine in one of its factories. The replacement will reduce operating expenses (i.e., increase earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) by 2,000,000 per year ( stands for Indian Rupee) for each of the 5 years the new machine is expected to last. Although the old machine has zero book value, it can be used for 3 more years. The depreciable value of the new machine is 5,000,000. The company estimates that the machine will lose 40% of its net book value each year, with a scrap value of 1,000,000. The company will use the reducing balance depreciation, and is subject to a 30% tax rate. Estimate the operating cash flows generated by the replacement.
