Calculation of NPV of cash sales:-

Annual sales is $5 million

Cost of goods sold is $3.2 million

Net Present Value=Present value of cash flows−Initialinvestment=$5 million−3.2 million=$1.8 million

Therefore, the NPV of cash sales is $1.8million.

Calculation of NPV of credit sales:-

Annual sales=Cash sales×(1+increase)=$5 million×(1 + 25\%)=$6.25 million

a. 20% customer pay in 30 day:-

Customer pay=$6.25 million×20%=$1.25 million

b. 40% customer pay in 60 day:-

Customer pay=$6.25 million×40%=$2.50 million

c. 37% customer pay in 90 day:-

Customer pay=$6.25 million×37%=$2.31 million

d. 3% customer will default:-

Customer default=$6.25 million×3%=$0.19 million

e. Cost of goods sold:-

Cost of goods sold=$3.2 million×(1+25%)=$4 million

=> 1.25M/(1.12%)30/365+2.5M/(1.12%)60/365+2.3125M/(1.12%)90/365​​​​​​​ – 4M

= $1.941Million

Since NPV on credit sales > NPV on cash sales we mustintroduce the option
