Capital Budgeting – Blackmores Group [25 marks] EXCELAnswer the below questions in your word file and refer to your excel spreadsheet as a supportingdocument. Upload your excel spreadsheet under “Excel Submissions”.All amounts are in $AUD. In order to satisfy the sharp increase in demand KGN is evaluatinginvesting in a “Mega Warehouse” project in Australia. KGN has already identified two existingwarehouses. In order to mitigate the risk and assess the fit for purpose of these facilities KGNasked “Axiom Ltd.” to conduct a technical due diligence. “Axiom Ltd.” is asking $100,000 as afixed fee for its consulting services.Project A has an initial outlay of dollars $150 million and Project B has an initial outlay of $85million.Project A will generate additional revenues of 45 million starting at the end of year 1 until theend of year 10. It will also incur additional working capital expenses of $1million immediately,this working capital will be recovered at the end of the project. Project B will generate additionalrevenues of 25 million starting at the end of year 1 until the end of year 10. It will also incuradditional working capital expenses of $2million immediately, this working capital will berecovered at the end of the project.The operating costs of both projects will be 30% of the revenues from year 1-10. Bothinvestment will be depreciated on a straight-line basis over ten years to 0 book value. KGN hasestimated that the “Mega Warehouses” can be sold at the end of year 10 respectively for $125million (Project A) and $100 million (Project B). The tax rate is 30%.
