Using payback, ARR, NPV, IRR, and profitability index to make capital investment decisions Water Planet is considering purchasing a water park in Atlanta, Georgia, for $ 1,870,000. The new facility will generate annual net cash inflows of $ 460,000 for eight years. Engineers estimate that the facility will remain useful for eight years and have no residual value. The company uses straight- line depreciation, and its stock-holders demand an annual return of 10% on investments of this nature.
