2- Capital Budgeting - Kogan-com Ltd-
Answer the below questions in your word file and refer to your excel spreadsheet as a supporting document- Upload your excel spreadsheet under "Excel Submissions"-
All amounts are in $AUD- In order to satisfy the sharp increase in demand KGN is evaluating investing in a "Mega Warehouse" project in Australia- KGN has already identified two existing warehouses- In order to mitigate the risk and assess the fit for purpose of these facilities KGN asked "Axiom Ltd-" to conduct a technical due diligence- "Axiom Ltd-" is asking $100,000 as a fixed fee for its consulting services-Project A has an initial outlay of dollars $150 million and Project B has an initial outlay of $85 million-
Project A will generate additional revenues of 45 million starting at the end of year 1 until the end of year 10- It will also incur additional working capital expenses of $1million immediately, this working capital will be recovered at the end of the project- Project B will generate additional revenues of 25 million starting at the end of year 1 until the end of year 10- It will also incur additional working capital expenses of $2million immediately, this working capital will be recovered at the end of the project-
The operating costs of both projects will be 30% of the revenues from year 1-10- Both investment will be depreciated on a straight-line basis over ten years to 0 book value- KGN has estimated that the "Mega Warehouses" can be sold at the end of year 10 respectively for $125 million -Project A- and $100 million -Project B-- The tax rate is 30%- All cash flows are annual and are received at the end of the year- The weighted average cost of capital for both projects is 6%-

Why????f- Suppose that KGN' management payback rule is 7-5 years- Based on your analysis in b-,c- and d- which project should be chosen???? Justify your answer with reference to theory- What other factor might affect the final decision????
