    You are considering opening a new plant. The plant will cost $100 million upfront and will take a year to build. After that it is expected to produce profits of $30 million at the end of every year of production. The cash flows are expected to last forever (perpetuity). Calculate the NPV of the investment opportunity if the cost of capital is 8%. Should you take the investment? Calculate the IRR and use it to determine the maximum deviation allowable in the cost of capital estimate to leave the decision unchanged (compare IRR w/ capital).

    Discount rate=r=8%
    Annual Cash inflow=C=$30
    PV of perpetuity =C/r=30/8%=$375 million
    But this is value at the end of year 1,

    PV of cash ...
