Attached is a model spreadsheet that includes a pro forma income statement and balance sheet forecasting 11 years of operation. We chose the inputs and made assumptions according to our research of the golfing industry and the market in Florida. In our analysis, we used a weighted average cost of capital of 7.24%. Our findings show that the internal rate of return and the weighted average cost of capital are equal at 7.24% if we were to purchase the assets for $1.53 million, which is more than the current asking price. These numbers are based on an initial 56% debt and 44% equity ratio, with the debt steadily going down over time. This is a good price for the golf course based on our research.
