Reconsider the valuation of the retail clothing chain presented in the previous problem. Use the following benefit stream information for this purpose. You have selected the capitalization of earnings method and determined that net cash flow is the appropriate mea-sure for expected future benefits. The company’s in-come data for years 2008 through 2012 are presented in the following table ($ in thousands).

1. Given the benefit stream set forth in the table, how would you determine the proxy benefit?
2. If you have determined a 21% required rate of re-turn, what is the capitalization rate? Assume the expected industry growth rate is 3%.
3. Using the determined proxy benefit and capitalization rate, what is the indicated value for the entire business? For the specific ownership interest you are valuing?
4. How does your conclusion of value compare to the one developed in the previousproblem?
