NWC is given in task list. The discount rate (Cost of Capital) is given. A hint: the numbers will look the same for the first 4 years,. In Year 5 it will be different due to NWC recovery. Initial cash flow for year 0 is given. You must put a cash flow for year 0 into your spreadsheet. It is given as initial outlay. It should be inputed as a negative quantity. Sales are given (This is also called Revenue) Gross margin is given. Calculate: COGS (You must find the equation that gives you COGS from gross margin and sales (revenue)). Do a search on \”COGS, Margin, Sales\”. You must determine what is COGS. Calculate SGA expense. Calculate yearly depreciation, straight line for tax purposes, look this up. There is no salvage value. Subtract COGS, SGA and depreciation from Sales (Revenue). This gives EBT, Earnings Before Taxes, also called Operating Income. Calculate Taxes on basis of EBT, tax rate is given. Subtract this from EBT (Operating Income). This gives Net Income. Add Depreciation back in to Net Income. This gives cashflow. Add NWC recovery to Net Income in the 5 year. This gives a Cashflow for each year. You should enter a cashflow for each year into your spreadsheet.Enter year 0 cash flow with a negative number: Cell B9Enter year 1-4 (these should be the same): C9 –F9.Enter year 5 cash flow after you have added back NWC: G9. The NPV and IRR should calculate automatically. If it does not you have made a mistake. To calculate depreciation:  By “straight-line,” we mean that the depreciation deduction is the same every year. By “written down to zero,” we mean that the asset is assumed to have no value at the end of five years, that is no salvage value. Here is an online tutorial that may be of help for NWC: Here is another:
