    I think they will receive 25% of net profit as they are buying 25% of the business. They can't receive all of it because it's not 100% their business.

    Yeah that's what I thought.. But then the payback period would be over 17 years, which seems unrealistic

    Mardidi is a new business I believe so it will probably take some time before Mardidi starts earning some real revenue in the U.S. and the U.K. given it has no UK presence. Go with your gut feeling and forget what your teacher or anyone else says. They won't be marking the paper and the markers will probably be looking for analysis and evaluative points and won't even know the case study tbh.

    They will need to thouroughly understand the case study. If they didn't, you could use very little application.

    So is the Accounting Rate of Return not the same, as they're only receiving 25%?

    My teacher suggested talking about the figures as they are, and then questioning their legitimacy as am evaluation point. I'm unsure which way to go about it, although there's plenty of other things to talk about to get the marks, the figures are pretty important.

    If we said that they receive only 25% of this net profit, then wouldn't the ARR and payback be impossible to work out? Seeing as we haven't been given the data for after 5 years? My teacher said just work out the ARR and payback of the whole net profit and then divide/times it by 4 (to represent 25%) but that seems wrong as we can't assume that same trend will continue.
    And yeah In any conclusion about it, I'd say that we aren't given enough information about profit figures and whether they represent the 25% or not

    Well by purchasing a 25% stake will give them a 25% share of profit. I do not have the figures, but if I remeber correcly, they're buying it for $2.5m. The fourth year or the last one on the table is $4m . I think that the ARR is reasonable.

    Hi guys, just a quick question. In general, by increasing the number of franchises, does this allow the franchisor to ultimately benefit from economies of scale (by greater quantity of orders from suppliers), or does each franchisee have to order directly from the agreed supplier and hence has no benefit to the franchisor (with regards to economies of scale)? Thanks

    Increasing the number of franchises allows the franchisor to benefit from economies of scale. This is due to all the franchisees probably ordering from the same supplier meaning the franchisor will benefit from lower unit costs because they're making bulk orders.

    Great, thank you. So I imagine that SHL would order bulk supplies to keep stored in their warehouse facility, until needed by a former franchisee? Because not necessarily will all stores require restocking at the same time, right?

    Yes most probably. Given that manufacturing takes 60 days and delivery takes 28 days they would probably order more in advance to avoid low stock and delays. And I assume not all franchisees will require restocking at the same time because obviously stock depends on the demand of the area they're set up in or close competitors, weather etc which will be different for each franchisee and therefore affect when they restock.

    I think it's a possible question yes but not as major as the other topics.
