Great Subs' analysts project that the merger will result in incremental free cash flows and interest tax savings of $2 million in Year 1, $4 million in Year 2, $5 million in Year 3, and $117 million in Year 4. (The Year 4 cash flow includes the horizon value of $107 million.) The acquisition would be made immediately, if it is to be undertaken.
