Question

Question;Suppose that the current cost of;opening such a store is \$400,000 and that \$250,000 of that initial investment;is the cost of stocking the shelves with new inventory. Suppose also that the;annual operating cash inflow from running an average comic book store is about;\$62,000 before taxes and that the tax rate is 35%.;a. Assuming that the average comic book store;has a life of about 10 years, what is the NPV of opening a new store if the;required rate of return in this business is 10%? You may assume that the;\$250,000 in initial inventory will be recovered at the end of the tenth year;(in addition to the annual operating cash flow for that year). What is the IRR;that one can earn by opening up a new store?;b. Assume that by offering merchandise;discounts to customers who are opening new stores Diamond can reduce the;required initial inventory investment from \$250,000 to \$150,000. Maintaining;all other assumptions as previously stated, how will that affect the NPV and;IRR earned on a new comic book store?
