Investment for the business is Rs. 40 Million.

He projects that revenue (before tax and depreciation) from the business will be Rs.8 Million for the first year

It will keep on growing at a rate of 5.5% annually till the 10th year.

Annual depreciation will be Rs. 4 Million under the straight line method.(4x10)=40M

Cost of capital is 10% while the rate of tax is 33%.

Please discuss and share your ideas.....there is not much time...the closing date is just after 3 days....
I have done some of the parts.....will share the idea shortly.....
Regards....

@ M. Asif why are you multiplying 4 million by 10, the depreciation is already given.....
Multiplying 4 million by 10 will make it 40 million which is exactly equal to the investment....
Please explain and remove my confusion......
Regards...

Friends, i think we should study lesson number 25 to 29 with concentration to discuss this assignment.

Along with we should have solid understanding of calculating the net income after deducting depreciation, income tax and cost of capital.

Best of luck. Let me also refresh my knowledge because i studied this subject two years ago and remained away from it.

COST OF CAPITAL
•When we say that the required return on an investment is, say, 10% we mean that the investment will have a positive NPV only if its return exceeds 10%.
•Alternatively, the firm must earn 10% on the investment just to compensate its investors for the use of the capital needed to finance the project.
•Thus, 10% is the cost of capital associated with the investment.
