3)The owner of Woofie’s Video Rental cannot decide how to project the real costs of opening a rental store in a new shopping mall. The owner knows the capital investment required but is not sure of the returns from a store in a new mall. Historically, the video rental industry has had an inflation rate equal to the economic norm. The owner requires a real internal rate of return of 10%. Inflation is expected to be 3% during the next few years. The industry expects a new store to show a growth rate, without inflation, of 8%. First year revenues at the new store are expected to be $400,000.
The revenues for the second year, using both the real rate approach and the nominal rate approach, respectively, would be
a. $432,000 real and $444,960 nominal.
b. $432,000 real and $452,000 nominal.
c. $440,000 real and $452,000 nominal.

4) Right-Way Right-Way Stores is a chain of home improvement stores with 150 locations. Right-Way has identified an attractive site for a new store and Jim Smith, Director of Financial Planning, has been asked to prepare an analysis and make a recommendation for or against opening this proposed new store. In preparing his analysis, Smith has determined that the land at the proposed site will cost $500,000 and the new store will cost $3.5 million to build. The building contractor requires full payment at the start of construction, and it will take one year to build the store. Right-Way will finance the purchase of the land and construction of the new building with a 40-year mortgage. The mortgage payment will be $118,000 payable annually at year end. Fixtures for the store are estimated to cost $100,000 and will be expensed. Inventory to stock the store is estimated to cost $100,000. Concerned about the possibility of rising prices, the company expects to purchase the fixtures and inventory at the start of construction. Advertising for the grand opening will be $50,000, paid to the advertising agency on retainer at the start of construction. The new store will begin operations one year after the start of construction. Right-Way will depreciate the building over 20 years on a straight-line basis, and is subject to a 35% tax rate. Right-Way uses a 12% hurdle rate to evaluate projects. The company expects to earn aftertax operating income from the new store of $1,200,000 per year.
Calculate the annual expected cash flow from the proposed new store. Show your calculation.
