A pro forma income statement for the Indian operation predicts the generation of Rs7,000,000 of annual cash flow, is listed in the following table.
The initial investment will be made on December 31, 2011, and cash flows will occur on December 31st of each succeeding year. Annual cash dividends to Philadelphia Composite from India will equal 75% of accounting income. The U.S. corporate tax rate is 40% and the Indian corporate tax rate is 50%. Because the Indian tax rate is greater than the U.S. tax rate, annual dividends paid to Natural Mosaic will not be subject to additional taxes in the United States. There are no capital gains taxes on the final sale. Natural Mosaic uses a weighted average cost of capital of 14% on domestic investments, but will add six percentage points for the Indian investment because of perceived greater risk.
