(Calculating free cash flows) Spartan Stores is expanding operations with the introduction of a new distribution center. Not only will sales increase but investment in inventory will decline due to increased efficiencies in getting inventory to showrooms. As a result of this new distribution center Spartan expects a change in EBIT of \$900000. While inventory is expected to drop from \$90000 to \$70000 accounts receivables are expected to climb as a result of increased credit sales from \$80000 to \$110000. In addition accounts payable are expected to increase from \$65000 to \$80000. This project will also produce \$300000 of depreciation per year and Spartan Stores is in the 34 percent marginal tax rate. What is the project s free cash flow in year 1?
