Question

(Ignore income taxes in this problem.) Bill Anders retires in 8 years. He has \$650,000 to invest and is considering a franchise for a fast-food outlet. He would have to purchase equipment costing \$500,000 to equip the outlet and invest an additional \$150,000 for inventories and other working capital needs. Other outlets in the fast-food chain have an annual net cash inflow of about \$160,000. Mr. Anders would close the outlet in 8 years. He estimates that the equipment could be sold at that time for about 10% of its original cost. Mr. Anders' required rate of return is 16%.

Required:

What is the investment's net present value when the discount rate is 16%?

Is this an acceptable investment?
