Inflow per year | 310282 |

less; depreciation(wn1)Per yr | 94124.5 |

Cashflow after Depreciation | 216157.5 |

Less Tax @26% | 56200.95 |

Cashflow after tax | 159957.5 |

added back: Depreciation | 94124.5 |

Net cash flow | 254082 |

Annuity Factor For ke 10.51%(wn2) | 6.013 |

Discouted cashflow | 1527795.06 |

Less : initial outflow (wn3) | 1130068 |

NPV | 397727.06 |

Working notes

1.Depreciation

Cost =1062000

Salvage value =120755

So Depreciation=(1062000-120755)/10 =94124.5/yr

2.Cost of capital(Dividend price growth approach)

Ke =(Expected dividend/MPS)+growth rate

=(1.48/23.11)+4.11%

=10.51%

3. Initial cashflow:

Cost =1062000

Research exp =45543

Floor redesign =22525

Total =1130068
