Assignment 8.1: Capital Budgeting Application


You have just graduated and one of your favorite courses was Financial Management. While you were in school, your grandfather died and left you $1 million. You have decided to invest the funds in a fast-food franchise and have two choices–Franchise L and Franchise S. You only intend to be in business for three years and then sell the franchise. See the cash flows for each year below:

$ 20


Depreciation, salvage values, net working capital requirements, and tax effects are included in the cash flows. The required rate of return is 10%. You must decide which franchise to invest in.
