CASE STUDY IN FINANCE – NOVA TRACTOR CORPORATION
Nova Tractor Corporation owns and operates a transmission and axle plant which manufactures more than 50% of the transmissions and axles used in the complete line of tractors and harvesting equipment offered by Nova to the agricultural industry. With an extensive machining processes performed on the steel parts for the final transmission and axle assembly, a very large amount of steel shavings and bulky steel scrap is generated in this plant.

The unprocessed steel scrap is sold as a by-product of the manufacturing operation to various firms involved in the recycling process. The executive committee is currently evaluating whether to process the scrap into different grades and types of usable steel. Using different models of chip crushers, the scrap is grinded and compressed into either “rough” or “fine” scrap. The fine scrap fetches a higher market price than the rough scrap.

Nova has to decide whether to invest in the higher-cost chip crusher (HCC) to produce fine scrap or the lower-cost chip crusher (LCC) to produce rough scrap.

As a financial analyst of the company, you have gathered relevant purchase prices and operating costs of the two chip crushers from the supplier of the chip crushers and the marketing and production staff.
