1. On page one you will write a cover letter to your client stating in summary form what you did and the value you computed.
2. Then, in the next page or two you will discuss your valuation method(s), discounts, and other information relevant to the valuation. Even though the valuation method and the discounts or premiums you are to use are already given to you, still explain why a business valuator would use them; in your writing make it sound as if you decided to use the method and discounts or premiums.
3. The next page or two will contain the Excel statement(s) showing your computations.

Hello Marcus, Thanks for providing examples in this response. I’ve worked for

Hello Marcus,
Thanks for providing examples in this response.
I’ve worked for a company before that always paid their credit as soon as possible (within 10 days), and others that would try to push it out to sometimes even 90 days. There can certainly be savings to paying credit promptly, as you stated. For example, a time where this is very important would be towards the end of the year. Sales teams take advantage of this time to leverage sales before year end. Based on experience, this is a tactic that is used often and can actually lead to companies saving amounts of cash for the end of year to take advantage of deals.
There are a few other ways you could approach a net-term deal, you could ask for percentages due at different times throughout the transaction. For example, 30% at signing, 50% at another defined stage during the project, and 20% upon completion (Wines, 2017). For some, this could be a dangerous agreement as it could result in an upaid balance if the project does not go to plan, this could be rare but it is a consideration.

Hello Marcus,
Thank you for the informational post! I do understand from the sellers point of view that the 2% discount is helpful to them as well even though they would technically lose out overall profits. This is due to suppliers having to pay upfront for their inventory, meaning they don’t have as much cash available until paid out by their customers. Providing an incentive for companies to pay them quicker allows the supplier to maintain a constant cash flow while also allowing them to maintain inventory for future customers. They could also use that money to invest Suppliers can increase the discount percentage or add other benefits as they’d like to help further incentivize buyers. Suppliers do have to monitor the long term impact of this however, as if there is an economic crisis or that particular sector is having a downturn, it could become probematic to manage.

WEEK 5 ASSIGNMENT – PROJECT: EVALUATE THE CAPITAL INVESTMENT
Week 5 Assignment – Project: Evaluate the Capital Investment
Overview
Shoals Corporation puts significant emphasis on cash flow when planning capital investments. The company chose its discount rate of 8 percent based on the rate of return it must pay its owners and creditors. Using that rate, Shoals Corporation then uses different methods to determine the most appropriate capital outlays.
This year, Shoals Corporation is considering buying five new backhoes to replace the backhoes it now owns. The new backhoes are faster, cost less to run, provide for more accurate trench digging, have comfort features for the operators, and have 1-year maintenance agreements to go with them. The old backhoes are working just fine, but they do require considerable maintenance. The backhoe operators are very familiar with the old backhoes and would need to learn some new skills to use the new backhoes.
The following information is available to use in deciding whether to purchase the new backhoes:

Old Backhoes

New Backhoes
Purchase cost when new
$90,000

$200,000
Salvage value now
$42,000

Investment in major overhaul needed in next year
$55,000

Salvage value in 8 years
$15,000

$90,000
Remaining life
8 years

8 years
Net cash flow generated each year
$30,425

$43,900
Instructions
To complete this assignment, write a 3–5 page paper in which you address the following items:
Evaluate, discuss, and compare whether to purchase the new equipment or overhaul the old equipment. (Hint: For the old machine, the initial investment is the cost of the overhaul. For the new machine, subtract the salvage value of the old machine to determine the initial cost of the investment.)
Using Excel, calculate the net present value of the old backhoes and the new backhoes.
Discuss the net present value of each, including what the calculations reveal about whether the company should purchase the new backhoes or continue using the old backhoes.
Using Excel, calculate the payback period for keeping the old backhoes and purchasing the new backhoes. (Hint: For the old machines, evaluate the payback of an overhaul.)
Discuss the payback method and what the payback periods of the old backhoes and new backhoes reveal about whether the company should purchase new backhoes or continue using the old backhoes. Calculate the profitability index for keeping the old backhoes and purchasing new backhoes.
Discuss the profitability index of each, including what the calculations reveal about whether the company should purchase the new backhoes or continue using the old backhoes.
Identify and discuss any intangible benefits that might influence this decision.
Answer the following: Should the company purchase the new backhoes or continue using the old backhoes? Explain your decision.
