Exercise 1 Laptop plc. is planning on setting up a laptop repair centre. They estimate that: The required investment will be £0.3m and the investment’s life is expected to be 5 years. The investment is to be depreciated using the straight line depreciation method and none of the costs are expected to be recovered at the end of the 5 years. Total revenues from repairs are expected to be £200,000 in year one (one year from now), growing at 2.5% per annum. Staffing costs are £90,000 per year. Administrative, advertising and general expenses associated with the centre are expected to be £20,000 per year. All costs are expected to increase at 2.5% per annum. The discount rate for ventures of similar risk is 12%. Laptop plc. faces a corporate tax rate of 35%. Calculate the NPV of this project and determine whether it should be accepted or rejected.
