Unit 6 Assignment

 Overview:

Wicked Good Cupcakes (WGC) expanded one year ago with the purchase of 3 baking/packaging systems. A vendor, Acme Baking, has suggested that there would be significant cost savings by the purchasing and installation of their newer integrated baking technology. The existing systems and Acme’s proposed integrated baking technology have an expected useful life of 10 years, with no salvage value. The WGC tax rate is 45%, and their IRR is 10%.
