The Yurdone Corporation wants to set up a private cemetery business. According to the CFO, Barry M. Deep, business is “looking up.” As a result, the cemetery project will provide a net cash in flow of $52,000 for the firm during the first year, and the cash flows are projected to grow at a rate of 5 percent per year forever. The project requires an initial investment of $900,000.
a. If Yurdone requires an 11 percent return on such undertakings, should the cemetery business be started?
b. The company is somewhat unsure about the assumption of a 5 percent growth rate in its cash flows. At what constant growth rate would the company just break even if it still required an 11 percent return on investment?
